“Wonderful views from the Grape & Olive at the top of the tower!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Apart from not liking heights, this was fantastic panoramic views of Swansea, the sea, mountains etc etc! Well recommended and in the setting of a trendy cafe-restaurant-bar (28 floors up!) Views you will not forget, especially if it's a clear day.

“Pleasant area to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We spent a lovely afternoon walking around the marina looking at the boats.
There are plenty of places to eat at & the beach nearby is very quiet.
We did find the parking charges were a bit steep but they usually are in these kind of places.

“Great for walking”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Great restaurants in the marina area and plenty to see from small fishing boats to expensive cruisers. Many coffee houses and a gallery nearby. Again use the Park and ride and walk.

“Good for Boaters”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Well laid out with good attractions. Parking restricted but there are some free spaces as well as a lot of permit parking. We were viewing boats for sale and we were well looked after by the yacht brokers.
