Premier Inn Swansea Waterfront Hotel

Reviewed April 14, 2011

A lovely modern, clean and comfy hotel . We had a room overlooking the dock on the 4th floor and the view was wonderful. The bed was quite high off the floor, but so comfortable that it was a job to get up in the mornings! A short walk across the blue iron bridge, takes you to a fabulous beach in one direction, or towards the town centre and a Dylan Thomas museum, the other. Breakfast was underneath the hotel at a Beefeater and there is a choice of just a croissant and drink, continental or full at various prices. The full breakfast was excellent and you could have as much as you wanted. My one gripe is with having to pay £5.50 for 24 hours at the adjoining car park. Over a week, this certainly adds up and we were not used to having to pay to park our car at a hotel before. The tickets issued ran out at 7.30am, whatever time you seemed to pay and we were constantly having to write notes on them, pointing out we had paid for twentyfour hours, to avoid getting a fine of £100. It was either that, or get up early each moring and put more money in. We never saw an attendant although a van was there most of the time.Surely the hotel could have come to some arrangement with Swansea City Council for their guests to be issued with tickets covering their stay? It is the one thing that spoilt our visit and we will probably book into the Village Hotel next time , which is just down the road as they have their own car park!

Right next to where the old docks were and the buzzing marina, which is all being developed and looking good.The car park, which our room overlooked, is run privately so you'd have to pay to park there.A few minutes walk to a large Sainsbury's, the main shopping centre of Swansea ,the new bus terminus, large library, museums and the huge swathe of miles of golden sands of Swansea Bay,There's a small Tesco only a few steps away and a bus stop.
This hotel was just a few weeks old when we stayed. We were welcomed warmly at the reception desk,the young lady taking the time to show us how self-check in worked.There was a lift to our floor.Our room was perfectly clean and fresh with tasteful decor and our twin beds were so very comfortable.We liked the shower, it didn't have any awkward bits to try to manoeuvre.Tv was slimline and a good reception.
The closest restaurant is on the ground floor, a Beefeater, where an eat-as-much-as-you-like breakfast is served at buffet tables, but this costs extra.Well worth it, though.

Room Tip: Walk into town,only 10 minutes.
