Visited this hotel as a couple in the 3rd week of August. It advertises itself as a boutique hotel with outstanding cuisine, which is partially why we booked it for a chilled out break, daytime walking & evenings of relaxation. When we arrived we were told that the restaurant was closed every Monday and Tuesday, which was annoying. The hotel... More

Our booking was for a luxury room but we were put in a separate lodge next to staff quarters with a view of the back of the house. The staff at reception weren't very welcoming when queried. Although the room was very clean and pleasantly decorated, it certainly wasn't luxury and a bit tatty on the outside with peeling paint... More

Had a lovely time in a wedding. Was a little disappointed with the food there though. Due to me being coeliac, I felt there could've been a little more effort involved when paying a high price for a meal. The hotel room was fantastic though and staff were friendly.

Good size, comfortable room with nice decor and great sized bathroom with separate shower and bath. Towels and toiletries provided as expected. TV and wifi both worked well. Staff were friendly and welcoming. While breakfast was good, the set-up at breakfast could be improved. The room itself (Dylan's Restaurant) was dark and really needs to be better lit (and this...

Such a superb stay! My boyfriend and I thought it was a perfect getaway. The staff were all delightful and the food was amazing. I would definitely visit again. In a quiet area and a short drive to some of the most beautiful bays I have ever seen.

Location is ideal for exploring the gower situated in a quiet valley just off the road next to a quaint church. Food was nice and... More

This small hotel is beautiful, stayed here for one night as we were attending a wedding at Oxwich bay hotel which is around 20 minutes away. The annoying thing about this was that I had to leave the wedding to go and check in to the hotel as check in closes at 9pm, however when we returned back at 1am... More

We grabbed a few days away and chose The Gower Hotel from their website. From the moment of arriving every member of staff was warm and welcoming with nothing being too much trouble. The hotel is smart and chic and our room was superb especially the bath at the bottom of the bed! We ate in the restaurant one evening... More
