“Excellent value small B&B hotel”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Two nights there recently. Could not fault anything about the hotel. Very friendly welcome, excellent breakfast included in the very reasonable price and great attention to detail, e.g. little chocolates on your bed each day, high quality toiletries, free newspaper and Wifi. Nothing too much trouble and would definitely stay there again. Only slight issue is that there is no car park and you are reliant on the availability of on-street parking in narrow side streets which may be a but difficult during peak times. But that is not the hotels fault and they do their best to guide yoiu to likely parking spots.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 4 on the first floor, a family room which is a little small but where great care h...

Found this place on trip adviser as we were traveling. Met all of our expectations. Quaint, comfortable, clean and very friendly owner and staff. Excellent breakfast. Ate at a nearby outstanding restaurant.

If we are ever back in Swansea we would want to stay here.

The White house went the extra Mile. It has reasonable prices, the service is excellent. I even had a mint left on my pillow, Rooms were clean, warm and well maintained. There was a wide choice for breakfast, and nothing seemed to much for them. I would stay in The white house anytime.

Room Tip: Have clicked on fitness by mistake the hotel does not have fitness centre or pool. Hotel in very goo...

This hotel/b&B is great, we have stayed there about 4 times, the team running the whte house are very friendly, and the rooms are clean and fresh. We stayed in room seven which is right up in the roof, no probelms with getting up the stairs, but some may find it more difficult, so check first, the breakfasts are really nice, my 18 year old son came with us, and he can eat for england :) the Welsh Breafast filled him up.

I travel to Swansea regularly on business and usually stay in one of the larger chain hotels on the outskirts of the City but thought I would try something different and what a revelation it was. The hotel is situated in the Uplands area of Swansea which has some really nice Wine bars and restaurants just around the corner from the hotel. When I arrived at the hotel I had a very warm greeting from the Owners and a speedy check in. The hotel's lounge and reception are very well kept and furnished to a very high standard with a combination of antique and modern furnishings. My room was immaculately clean with all the little extras you could wish for like tea/coffee, biscuits, sweets, bottled water, local newspaper even hot chocolate. The bathroom although compact was perfectly adequate with a very generous double sized shower which was great for me as I'm not the smallest. There was also a great range of quality toiletries supplied including cotton buds and shoe shine.
Breakfast was excellent with a huge range of buffet items and large selection of hot items to choose from the menu, I chose the haddock with poached eggs which was excellent and came with a selection of mixed toast.
All in all a very enjoyable stay and I will most certainly be staying again

Booked the White house and turned up! parking is difficult, there was a warm welcome but the place is in need of a clean up, carpets dirty and well used,
After being taken to room 6 I was very disappointed mill due in the shower base, this instantly puts me off. then it was a tight fit for using the toilet and shower again another put of the remote did not work with the TV.and the room is compact to say the least!
Got up for breakfast and again another warm welcome, the breakfast at best was mediocre,
will not use again I am sorry to say!

I'd seen on trip advisor that the rooms were small, but hadn't anticipated quite how small, but perfectly formed the bathroom was going to be! Having said that, there was everything I needed, the staff couldn't have been more helpful or pleasant (brilliant recommendation of Vietnamese restraint for dinner - thanks) and even turned too for an early breakfast for us as we had to leave early. All in all, comfortable, clean but small!
