Stayed at this B&B for 2 nights. The rooms were lovely and clean, everything you needed even down to cotton buds, iron and board. The owners were lovely, very professional and know how to run a business. Breakfast was superb and plentiful. Parking was a problem on the main road as very busy when we checked in. Sleep quality not... More

First, and this is totally my mistake. This is not a HOTEL. This is a B&B. Had I looked closer at the listing online I would have seen that there were only 9 rooms and 3 floors. However, the online listing clearly says Alexander Hotel. We had difficulty locating the property as we were expecting to see a hotel. After... More

This guesthouse made me feel welcome and was very cosy. It has a friendly atmosphere and I enjoyed my stay. It is, however, more than a mile away from the station and city centre, so I advise taking a cab if you arrive late.

On the one hand, this place is good. The host is jovial and welcoming. The bedrooms have wine, biscuits, chocolates, good toiletries etc. The breakfast selection is wide ranging with a freshly cooked main meal. But. But. The place was compact, the bedroom was small, and the shower was so cramped that the sink was in the bedroom. There were... More

We are very sorry that we did not come up to the customers expectations. When the customer booked with us we only had a small double en-suite room available. We are sorry the décor was not to the customers taste, all our rooms are decorated on a regular basis and most people compliment us on how well the building is... More

Could not find a better family run hotel, all clean and tidy. Full breakfast to start the day and keep you going till late afternoon. Spacious bathroom with good supply of towels. Very Very nice owners always with a smile on their faces. Located just a few minutes from the beach and close to shops.

Quiet even though on quite a busy road! Wi- fi connected OK but didn't work but that may have been because I was at the back of the house - no big... More

My partner and I enjoyed a long weekend break in May 2015 and can recommend this friendly B and B handily placed on the western side of Swansea in close proximity to the stunning Gower Coast. The proprietors were polite and helpful and the excellent breakfast sustained for 6 hours! Our double room was of a decent size, the bed... More

Fantastic place to stay. Very welcoming and helpful. Nothing was too much and the breakfast set us up for the day! The bedrooms were more than expected. Will definitely be the place we are staying when we visit Swansea again.

Love this hotel. Just perfect independent small family run hotel. Pleasant rooms. Quiet. Lovely breakfast. Friendly. Clean. Comfy bed too. Room 3 shower could be a bit more 'showerful' I'm sure that'll get sorted a.s.a.p. Delighted after best nights sleep in ages!
