“2 night break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Took advantage of a winter break deal to visit our Grandaughter who lives close by so we know and love the area. The steel works at one end of the very long sandy beach does not detract from the lovely views of the beach, sea and across to the Mumbles area. The interior of the hotel is always a welcoming surprise after the stark exterior. Except for a noisy radiator our room was large, comfortable and clean with a side sea view. Breakfast and evening meal was very tasty and came swiftly, the staff very friendly and helpful especially the bar man Sam, quite a character. We stayed in February in gale force winds and heavy rain but were very comfortable once inside the hotel. Would definitely stay again and maybe get to use the pool and spa next time.

Stayed one night Bedrooms v poor eg: no heating at night, no hot water at night, Carpets badly stained all over passages in rooms large wet stains on carpets in middle of room and by bed one shudders to think what caused it. In the room 1 small radiator under window but this is completely covered by well insulated curtain.
Sheet small and not fitted
Excellent reception area, staff very good, breakfast v good
Good rates except for quality of room

Room Tip: We only saw one not sure what others are like Looks like they were flooded on the second floor so...

I stayed here in November 2013 for a business trip.
I chose this hotel because of the great price I got on the room rates, which included all of the leisure facilities.

We received a warmish welcome on arrival.

My room was a decent size and nicely furnished. The view outside was of the sea, which was very nice.

I used the swimming pool all 3 days and it was more or less empty. The steam room, sauna and jacuzzi were an added bonus and I made good use of these too.

On the second night (a Saturday), there was a busy wedding on, and whilst trying to sleep there was a lot of noise with kids running about on the second floor. I even had my door knocked on a few times - This was the only downer on an otherwise pleasant stay.

The restaurant served very nice food for Dinner, and the breakfasts were also above average.

If in this area again, I would definately choose to stay here.

When you arrive you think, 'oh no, what have I booked!' However, once inside the reception staff are brilliant, the rooms tidy and there's a good selection of bar and restaurant food.

The only gripes I had were the TV which appeared to only have four working channels and the room is quite hot, even with window open and its only March.

Evening meal was good and again, staff in bar area were great.

I'll be going back!

Room Tip: Ask for a Sea View room, they really do have a great view.

Don't be put off by the exterior of the hotel which looks like a throwback from the 60s. Perception changes as soon as you walk in the door. Inside the hotel in lovely. Very friendly and helpful staff. The whole place is spotless Room was clean, bed very comfortable. View was great. Excellent value, would definitely stay there again.
