Very friendly owners, nice breakfast, comfortable clean rooms and cheap. The owners go above and beyond for you. My only negative was the rooms can get a bit chilly, and the tea and coffee sachets aren't replaced... but apart from that very nice and welcoming hotel.

Loved my stay at The Swandown! -Was a last minute booking and they were kind enough to book me in! Clean and warm rooms with a great made-to-order breakfast! Located at prime location within walking distance of town center and public transportation. Will definately be back to stay. -Thanx to kind hosts Stephen and Fiona!

last minute booking for a stay over after a leaving do. Just a single room with shared shower room. Perfectly reasonable room, Shower was good. For £35 pretty good value. Pretty small car park, but found somewhere on a local residential road. Breakfast is included.

It is now the third year I stayed in the Swandon hotel for the Air Tattoo . The atmosphere is not like in a hotel, but it is like familiary. Clean ensuite room, very friendly staff and I look forward to see Stephen and Fiona again next year in July.

Wow.. that was nice. A wonderful experience with virtually no thumbs down in any department. The reasons I loved my stay: - on bus route, easy reach - next to town center, the shopping hub - restaurants nearby, for lunch & dinner - yummy breakfast, servers are good and take personalized orders as well - Cozy bed, esp pillows -...

Ideal as contractors accommodation, big room, ensuite, friendly, helpful staff, right in the centre of town. Rooms need a bit of tlc, but it's budget hotel, so don't expect too much. Would I stay here again, for work, yes, with the family, probably not.

A friend booked my week stay in Swandown. Thanks to Steve and Fiona for their warm welcome and wonderful complimentary breakfasts served daily between 7 & 9. The rooms are neatly maintained though the wash room is quite small. The location is an added advantage quite close to the Town centre and bus stop. I would recommend stay if you... More

I stopped off here with a friend on the way from London to Cardiff to play golf. The price was excellent - ~£52 for a twin room including a delicious breakfast. Slept very soundly and it's only a short walk to either the town centre or the old town with its lovely bars and restaurants. Great service and hospitality, thanks.
