Stayed in 2-bedroom Dove cottage for two nights. Helpful, chatty owner. Cottage had just about every amenity you could want from S/C accommodation, including useful washer and drier. Very clean and well looked after generally - the owners clearly take a pride in their business. Signs all over town too, so you can't miss the site. Super bright lights in the bathroom which doubled up as heaters - nice touch.
Rustic bar and pizza place about 3 mins walk away - pizzas huge and recommended. Other options in town, though note that Swansea is small and fairly quiet, and doesn't stay up late.
Nice quiet beach a tiny walk away.
Handy also for Wineglass Bay and the like (45 min drive), and one tenth of the cost of the hotels near there!
Downsides? No view I guess as sites were quite close to one another. But overall this place comes highly recommended.
