Good value hotel with all the amenities you need. My room was overlooking the road so traffic could be heard and it was a little cramped but clean and well equipped and reasonably priced so all in all good value.

Situated to the west of Swansea city centre in a great position for touring The Mumbles and the Gower. Very friendly and helpful owner. Good sized room. Spotlessly clean. Great breakfast. Would definitely recommend.
