I spent two nights here on a biz trip. Exceptionally nice staff. Room was clean and neat. Breakfast is lite on fruit and long on heavy items like bacon and sausage. OJ was awful Cereals are so so. Great location in Mombles. patricks is better

I wanted a couple of days next to the sea to celebrate my birthday and loved this hotel - unlike some people (!!) I loved it all the more because I met two beautiful four legged guests (and their very nice two legged owners!!) Yes, Susan and Poppy, I mean you - very well behaved and happy pooches. The hotel...

Just returned from a two night stay here and cannot praise the staff or the hotel enough. We (the wife and I) went with our ten year old Alsatian Poppy and from the second we walked in the door we knew we'd made a good choice. We were checked in by Greg who was amazing all weekend and even 'babysat'...

If you are looking for a swanky boutique hotel this is not your place. If you are travelling with your dog then you will be hard pressed to find anywhere better. All the staff at the Mumbles Carlton love dogs. We just stayed for one night and all 3 of us, two humans and one dog, were made very welcome....

I booked with Bookings .com and paid 85 pounds for a twin room for New Years Eve. I stayed in room 27. I was aware it was not sea view and did not mind. The room actually has a double bed and single bed. It had an en suite bathroom, and tea and coffee facilities, TV , and access to...

Just stayed 2 nights, and couldn't recommend it more. Right on the seafront not far from the pier. Car park opposite (free from 7pm to 9am otherwise £5 all day). Marvellously dog friendly. We had a ground floor sea view room which was easy to pop out for a quick morning walk. We're veggie and the hotel got in veggie...

If you are looking for a dog friendly hotel in the Swansea area, than look no further than this hotel. It may not be the Ritz, but the Ritz does not allow dogs to wander all over the place, get fed sausages at breakfast and dog treats by the Bar Staff. I stayed in Room 40 which opened up onto...

We stayed for three nights, and felt that this hotel needed more proactive management. We were shown to our room, where the window was open and the room was cold. We tried to get the heating to work, but we found out that it was centrally controlled, and did not come on until about 6.45pm ( we arrived at 2pm)....

Although we had a confirmed reservation for a twin room with a sea view, the owner could find no record of the booking - because the staff were 'all on holiday' and he didn't know how to work the reception computer. He put us in a very shabby double room at the back of the building and promised us a...

I really couldn't fault the hotel on anything. The twin room and adjourning shower room was clean and while not vast, certainly comfortable for two. With the bonus of a door out on to a secure decked veranda the dog was also well pleased. The breakfast was excellent and all the staff are delightful, nothing seemingly is too much trouble....
