Lovely quiet location near the main roads. Viv and Gordon were very helpful and accommodating with me. They were always around if you had a question but gave me my privacy otherwise which was exactly what I wanted. The breakfast is very good using local ingredients and always on time! Beds were extremely comfortable and I slept really well every... More

A lovely bed and breakfast in a beautiful quiet location. The family room was a major plus for us as it is so hard to find accommodation for a family bigger than four without spending a fortune. They gave us a brilliant offer on the accommodation with 1 child free and another half price, full english breakfast included in the... More

Great value for money. Perfect balance of helpfulness and privacy. And to top it all, when my car was hit and needed a garage repair, they gave me a lift even though it was 30 mins away. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for one night, very welcoming and thought the room was clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced. A nice quiet setting, very peaceful with spectacular walks and scenery, highly recommended!

I booked rooms at Island house for myself and my elderly parents as we needed to visit a relative close by. We were delighted with the service we received from Gordon and Viv. They could not have made us more welcome and our rooms were comfortable, well stocked and clean. Breakfast was excellent. We will certainly use them again. Good... More

We were onThe Gower for a university reunion, and chose Island House purely because it had a family room where our 2 teenagers didn't have to share a bed! Gordon greeted us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. I'm not keen on sharing a bathroom with... More

Thank you for you very kind compliments. We note that you have only given Four stars for cleanliness, and wish you could have told us that there was a problem, before leaving. We have undertaken a full spring clean of your room and yes unfortunately the top of the wardrobe was a bit dusty. More
