Merle and Richard made us very welcome and suggested we book in early to get ready for a wedding at Sketty Hall. There were no restrictions on time we came back. Rooms were lovey - clean and well maintained with ample refreshments. Breakfast was delicious. Will definitely stay again to visit family. Thank you.

A warm welcome, clean and cosy room with tea, coffee and hot chocolate facilities, biscuits, a bottle opener and wine glasses. Tv, wi fi access if needed and toiletries in bathroom, though I had obviously brought... More

I only stayed the one night, but will definitely be back. Merle & Richard were the most warm and welcoming people you could hope for and the breakfast was second to none. Stick it high on your list of places to stay, you won't be disappointed.
