I enjoyed a short stay in this little B&B at the edge of the hills. It was a bit hard to find the place and impossible to find parking. And driving around the block is an ordeal in orienteering as well. On my third lap I finally abandoned the car half-way around and lugged my luggage (now I know why... More

I booked two single rooms for a couple of nights there. Love the location which is up the hill and good for walking/exercise/healthy lifestyle! There was a free parking space right next to the hotel. There are several busy/popular restaurants nearby. The clean rooms were quite small but perfectly all right for a short stay: free WiFi, power shower, TV... More

First visit here since change of ownership having visited twice before. First thing we noticed going through front door was the smell if dog. We love dogs but this in a hotel is most unpleasant. We agree with other comments that the place is tired and needs some tlc. The breakfast was average, very poor quality sausages .. But good... More

Stephen and Kemal make it such a great place to stay. Location is in uplands- good for waking to local food places but away from city centre (which is a little shady/shut down in the evenings anyway). Uplands is a safe neighbourhood with a Sainsbury and a Tesco and cheap and mid-range food options within 5 minutes from the hotel.... More

Excellent place to stay. Very good value & very comfortable, indeed. Arrived very late & they didn't bat an eyelid. Staff are exceptionally professional & polite!! Beautifully decorated too. Situated in the gorgeous area of Uplands in Swansea where you are never far away from the city centre. Breakfast was very good with amazing choice for such a small place.... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Our room was clean and comfortable, and had all necessary supplies. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices and served by friendly and helpful staff. We could not fault the presentation of the guest house at all. The only downside could be the car parking - whilst we were lucky to find an on-street park,... More

This is a very good value for money guest house, but I was disturbed by noise from other residents. Breakfast was adequate, but sausages were not very meaty, and after the first night I just had toast, as the cooked breakfast was not for me. Parking was not immediately available but was not difficult to find in surrounding streets. Very... More

My sincere thanks to Stephen (proprietor) and his very capable assistant Karmel for looking after me over the past 9 months for a variable number of days each week. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the breakfasts were terrific (especially the kippers and haddock!). As a contractor I really needed an early breakfast but they were amenable to moving... More

Lovely little hotel well situated in leafy suburbia on the edge of the Swansea uplands with easy access to the city centre. Afforded a warm and friendly reception. Meticulously clean warm and comfortable room excellently maintained. Super comfy bed and superb breakfast. A real gem in Swansea. Highly recommended!
