After seeing someone's review on here saying that the keys that were handed out opened every single other room in the building, I came to the guest house and asked the owner, to which he showed me with his keys that each key you are given will only open YOUR room door, and the front door of the actual building...

After a few mishaps getting my hotel booked on Expedia I was reallocated to this hotel and I must say I am extremely pleased I was. The hotel is exactly what you would expect from a small hotel in Swansea. The room was lovely, a nice comfortable living space, and I was sad not to be staying here longer. The... More

We booked a double self-catering apartment here to stay overnight while we helped our son with his end of year clean on his university let. We didn't require breakfast as we were meeting up with him. The apartment was very clean and although adequate in most respects was let down by the 'double' bed being only 4ft wide and up... More

Room was smallish but fine for a single person. Breakfast was good. However, big problem with noise early mornings (from 7am at least) from staff outside the kitchen and cleaners with very loud voices

It's cheap, good location, off road parking, I was in room 3 which was very small but kept very clean & it was comfortable, the only concern with the place is every key for the hotel is the same key! All it takes is a dodgy customer & they'll have your stuff away! That's bad security really.

Friendly family proprietors who don't make a fuss. It's basic, but has all you need if you are not going to be in your room all the time. We use it when we visit our daughter at the university and it has all we need; decent cooked breakfast, clean room and reasonably comfortable bed, and it is not expensive. Yes,... More

I was studing in Swansea and my parents come to visit me and stay in a self catering apartment, they love it. It's an amazing value, clean and well located near the shops ans pubs, and 5 minutes by car from city center.

Not a warm welcome, don't believe the website. rooms are unpleasant and walls are ridiculously thin. You will hear every word. Don't pay for the en suite, it doesn't have a shower. No decent sized towels provided, had to dry myself on the hand towel.

All in all a great little hotel cheap enough and Verry clean and well placed for all ya needs and travel. It's just around the corner from plenty of different shops , pubs with live music cafe and take-aways even a convinient laundry. All in all well placed & prised.
