“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I spent 2 nights at Meredith House. I had booked over the internet quite a while before I left the UK. Just before leaving home Neil or Noel emailed me to let me know that they would be out when I arrived but would leave me details as to access Mews unit. The unit was great with a little verandah overlooking a lovely garden.
Breakfast was excellent and enormous. i was given a plastic bag so that I could take the uneaten muffins with me. Neil and Noel are excellent hosts.
I would certainly recommend staying here.

We stayed here and loved it. Friendly, charming, clean, quaint, cute dogs. Also the owners allowed us a late check out as we waited for local road to open. Breakfast was the best I've had anywhere, with a take away bag of fresh breads and brioches. Perfect

Loved this place. Our room was great and huge and the building was amazing with so much character. Breakfast was lovely on the verandah. We were a little puzzled by the service and meals in Swansea however it is worth visiting just to stay at this place.

What a pleasant surprise Meredith House was. We booked it somewhat out of desperation because we planned our trip late and it's peak season, but couldn't have been happier with the place. The owners' attention to detail and general thoughtfulness (my girlfriend was delighted by the gluten free breakfast options) was evident throughout and it was the perfect place to unwind after three nights in a tent.

We would certainly come back if in the area again.

Thank you for your great review, we certainly try to meet peoples requirements, so the gluten free breakfasts are easy to do once we know they are required, which you were good enough to request when booking. Thanks you again and we hope to see you in Swansea in the future.

Neal and Noel are the most wonderful hosts that we have met in our travels. We stayed with our young children and they were made most welcome and the hosts certainly made a lasting impression on them. We stayed in a two bedroom suite which was somewhat small but no smaller than some European hotel rooms which we have stayed in. The breakfast, as mentioned in other reviews, is a highlight with great detail in preparation of cereals, fruits, juices and the hot breakfast ingredients were so fresh. We hope to stay there again.

This is basically a B and B hotel, but these guys really know what the customer wants. Great rooms, wonderful extras like fresh cakes on arrival, decanter of sherry in room, and a wonderful breakfast. They also give up the spare rolls and cakes from breakfast to the guests to help them on their onward journey. Swansea is lovely, and if u r going there, look no further than Meredith House.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We stayed for one night on our way through to Port Arthur. The warm welcome from Neil, Lulu & Dougal set the tone. This included home baked muffins and a play with the gorgeous pooches (Lulu & Dougal) there is a guests sitting room which is beautifully appointed including complimentary sherry. Very nice!

A beautifully restored 1800's home, but with all the mod cons including:
- Free wifi
- Large plasma TV in our lounge
- fabulous selection of DVD's in our room
- LCD TV in bedroom
- hair dryer
- good bathroom products

All this topped off with a magnificent home cooked breakfast complete with a lovely (large) basket of pastries which you are encouraged to take with you.

Gorgeous.
