This was mine and my partners (and our dog!) second visit to the Gower Hotel and again it did not disappoint. We stayed in one of the rooms at the back of the hotel which was very spacious, very comfortable and with a huge bathroom. We had dinner in the very smart and stylishly refurbished restaurant on the first night... More

We had Sunday Lunch for my mother's Birthday on 22/03/15. The Hotel and accompanying Dylan's Restaurant is newly refurbished and it certainly makes a great impression. Cool and contemporary interiors matched with attentive and welcoming staff. Sunday Lunch is a fixed menu with 3 or 4 choices for each course. We were certainly most impressed at £15.95 for two courses.... More

The first day of spring, uninterrupted blue skies and sunshine, a fantastic day's walking along Rhosilli beach and Worm's Head. What better end to a day than an overnight stay in a nice hotel ? The Gower Hotel exceeded our expectations. Newly refurbished in modern Farrow-and-Ball style, we had a very comfortable room. The staff were all extremely friendly and... More

I wouldn't normally give a negative review, I just wouldn't go back, but I'm extremely disappointed and even after telephoning to speak to a manager to hear what their explanation was, 6 days later they still haven't done rang back despite promises.

Further to my telephone conversation with you on Thursday 19th March 2015 (and our Operations Manager having spoken with you earlier that week, after receiving your voicemail), I am disappointed to hear that such review has since been posted. As mentioned, the day you visited the hotel our kitchen was undergoing maintenance and all in-house guests had been informed of... More

We were given one of the satellite rooms up the very steep hill, which was a bit awkward for my husband being on crutches, the room was fabulous, very large, was a room that you could take your dog into as well, so good to know for future visits. We were at a party that night and there was a... More

After lengthy research and much planning, I had booked to stay here for a surprise birthday treat for my partner, myself and our 2 small children, which also coincided with Mother's Day, so a little treat for me too. I had worked out what we were planning to do during our stay and even rang and spoke to someone at... More

Firstly, please let us apologise that your experience with the Gower Hotel was not satisfactory; we too are disappointed, as this is certainly not the standard of service for which we wish our guests to receive. It’s very unfortunate that your booking was one that got caught in a system error and we are truly sorry that we were not... More

To be honest, our daughter is getting married at the Oxwich bay hotel in 8 weeks time, booked almost two years ago. As we live in Port Talbot we were looking for somewhere near the Oxwich to stay the night before her wedding, as the Oxwich is fully booked Eve before her wedding. We had been searching for nearest hotel... More

My husband and I stayed for 1 night as an impromptu treat. There is not one thing I could fault about the place. Our room was stunning. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.

Had a fabulous meal in the newly refurbished restaurant, sophisticated decor, attentive and charming staff, sublime food from head chef Ray Ziemelis and his small team. Fixed price menu with focus on locally sourced products brilliantly cooked and beautifully presented. best steak ever!
