We stayed in Devon View Guest House for 4 nights (14th July - 18th July 2015). During my stay, my room was cleaned/ tidy every day, the owner was such a gentleman. The breakfast was delicious with a good portion. Beautiful beach is just in front of the guest house. There were many restaurants in 7-10 mins walk. City centre... More

Quirky, kitsch, friendly and relaxing with a great view of the beach. The owners are very friendly and the breakfast is excellent. I've stayed here a couple of times and the experience has always been very satisfying, and am looking forward to coming back. Great little hotel.

My husband and I were here for three nights. All we were really looking for, was a place to sleep while we explored the city most of the day. So we didn't really come with the highest of expectations.... However we were surprised beyond measure!! Tony and Allison make the house feel so homely(I hope I have the couple's names... More

In Swansea in business and travelled the night before so wanted something low cost. The Devon view delivers what you need Room AOK Staff pleasant Location good Fab views over the sea Great cooked breakfast all for £55.00 The only down side is the lack of parking after 8.am in the morning Would use again

Thank you for your kind review. we are sorry that you thought there was no parking after 8 pm. there is a carpark with spaces for about 100 cars within 1 minute walk from us which is open all day and night so I can't understand why you should think there was a problem with parking. we are glad though...

My partner and I booked 2 nights stay at the Devon View Guest House, whilst we attended a friend's wedding. It's a nice little place, in a good location. Swansea bay is just over the road and it's well located for Mumbles, Singleton Park and the city centre. The room was bright and nicely decorated, it wasn't huge but it... More

I was greeted with, "name? You're on the top floor, mind your head." The single bedroom was small but I could only stand up straight in half of it due to the sloping roof. It had a small window overlooking terraced rooftops.Washbasin was in the room. The toilet was down two flights of stairs and there was nowhere to wash... More

we are extremely sorry that you found us to be so bad as to warrant such a scathing attack on our hospitality. not withstanding the fact that we absolutely reject your assertion that we were so abrupt and unfriendly, we would point out to you that your scores are diametrically apposed to the vast majority of all our reviews. so...

Stayed here for one night as we had a wedding in Swansea. Reasonable for one night, comfortable and reasonably clean. Price only worth it because it includes full English (which was good too), and because it is just across the street from the beach. Nice staff, convenient location. Would recommend for someone looking for an affordable place to crash, NOT... More

OK the view from the front facing room was stunning - once you'd clambered over the furniture to see it. If you wanted to "swing a cat" you'd be hard pressed. We found it very difficult to find parking close by as it's a parking permit controlled zone and the traffic was horrendous arriving around 4.30pm. After 6pm, it's possible... More
