From the warm friendly greeting when we arrived to the excellent breakfast service we were made very welcome. Comfortable bed, lovely shower and bathroom.

Stayed here for a couple of days and had to leave early due to sleepless nights on the uncomfortable beds. Rooms way too small. Towels never changed.found the lady a little abrupt and rude when asking for assistance.also found the lady was far too busy knocking other establishments when she should have been concentrating on her own

Not one person has left early in the whole of this year so we have to ask the question as to what the writer of this review is attempting to achieve with such an inaccuracy. Certainly there is absolutely no evidence of 'lumpy... More

We had a lovely stay at the Devon View. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The room was ideal. I lay on my bed looking directly out of the window to the sea and beach. We will definitely choose this B & B on our next visit to Swansea.

This guesthouse is conveniently located facing the beach roughly in the middle between (Swansea) town and university. Both are within easy walking distance (10 - 15 mins). There is also a bus stop right outside which is serviced by the new metro bus that goes through town to the train station in one direction and to university in the other.... More
