“A wonderful base for a walking holiday in the Gower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We received an extremely warm and friendly welcome, complete with tea and Welsh cakes. Our accommodation was of a very high standard, with its own separate entrance and a kitchenette with fridge and microwave. The bedroom also had a very comfortable seating area.
Breakfast was served in a spacious lounge with large picture windows and fine views. The food itself was excellent and beautifully presented, and a wide choice was offered. Joy and Stefan provided advice, maps and leaflets to help us make the most of our stay.
The location was ideal, with Mumbles five minutes away by car and the lovely Gower beaches and countryside within easy reach.
We certainly hope to return for a longer stay.

We were recommended this accommodation by The Woodman, a local Pub/Restaurant, and found it to be located fantastically and with excellent facilities and hospitality by Stephan & Joy who looked after our every need. We stayed in one of their beautifully furnished suites with our own entrance so that we could come and go as we liked. Excellent home cooked breakfast with locally sourced sausages and bacon. Will definitely return, but with probably with friends or family. Thank you both.

We stayed for two nights and received a lovely warm welcome on our arrival as well as delicious home baked welsh cakes! Stefan and Joy were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much bother. The rooms were lovely, overlooking the golf course, and the breakfasts were great with something to suit everyone. Two of our party had vegetarian breakfasts which were delicious and filling, and two had freshly baked american pancakes with maple syrup, all of which kept us going till well after lunch time. Its an ideal spot to explore the beautiful Gower as its only about a 10 minute drive to Three Cliffs Bay which is well worth a visit. Overrall, a very enjoyable experience- our son now wants to live in Wales in a B+B!

We stayed for 3 nights having found it on the Welsh Tourist Board website. We were delighted with the excellent accommodation and with a first class breakfast choice to suit everyone. . Stefan & Joy were perfect hosts and we would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the Swansea, Mumbles and The Gower coastline.

Clean and well kept and cordial hosts. However, I was in general not impressed with the place. I have never liked staying at bed and breakfasts that feel like I'm in someone's house, and the Fairways is exactly that. It was tidy enough and the breakfast was tasty. However, it is not an "experience." I also feel like I was a bit overcharged. For the price, I would save your money for a place a bit off the beaten trail that has more ambiance and privacy.

The accommodation was superior to most B & B's. In the larger self-contained B & B there was a small kitchen with a fridge and microwave, as well as plenty of space in the main room for a settee. It was comfortable and the breakfasts provided many treats. We shall be back sometime.

Room Tip: ring up early!
