The hotel claims to be Swansea's premier hotel. The place is a ok, a standard hotel with some nice parts but the surroundings are a little jaded. The room was standard hotel fare although the TV didn't work, luckily the free wifi allowed us to watch Sky Go so that didn't really matter.
We had a room on the top floor at the back which meant that it was relatively quiet, with some others staying saying their rooms at the front had a fair bit of noise.
The food in the bistro was good although a bit over the top on sauces but that's a matter of taste rather than anything else, but with a large party in, service was a bit slow. Breakfast on the other hand was pretty good being freshly cooked rather than the usual buffet that can become a bit dried out.
If you are to stay, then go in with eyes open. The hotel is in the city centre and is therefore potentially noisy. Generally service is ok. It is, as the rating says, average in my view.
