Spent an enjoyable night at the Swansea Marriott to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel honored our request for a room with a high floor and view of Swansea Bay which was lovely - see photo. The room itself was adequate in size, clean and modern. Most of the fittings were in good repair; the exception was one of the two(!) toilet roll holders in the bathroom which was listing alarmingly.
As we've come to expect from the Marriott, everything was clean and tidy, and the staff were friendly without being obtrusive. Scott at reception deserves a special mention for his friendly welcome. Breakfast was the standard buffet, with plenty of choice (cooked, cereals, juices, continental, make-your-own toast and pastries), but the room seemed fairly small so might get busy when the hotel is full. We had no problems arriving just before 9am on a Sunday.
Unfortunately, the view over the marina from the restaurant (and other half of the bedrooms) is being obliterated by a huge apartment block currently under construction, so anything billed as being "marina view" would probably not actually have anything like as good a view as might be expected.
We found lots to see and do within walking distance (bars, cafes, shops, museums and beach) and with free parking in the hotel's large car park we found the rate of £122 for a deluxe double including breakfast to be pretty good value.
