“My stay”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Good value for money, clean, conveniently located. The only thing that has spoiled my stay was the birthday party going on in the room opposite to mine. But that was just me being unlucky so I will definitely come back to this hotel.

I was given a price of £41 for the night but had to pay £50+ on arrival apparently the reception made an error when I called. Having asked for a quiet room I was given a room facing the duel carriageway not quiet by any means .

The hotel was basic and a little bit too far out of town, but what it lacked on frills and location was made up for with the attitude and helpfulness of the staff together with a superb breakfast. If you want cheap and cheerful this will do for you, and the local taxis are cheap enough.

Clean, airy, modern room with comfortable bed. Although our room faced the busy A483 dual carriageway, noise was not a problem.

The breakfast buffet, conveniently served from 6.30am (cold early bird breakfast from 4am), although not outstanding, was very good by budget hotel standards - reasonable variety, hot foods were still hot, staff friendly and attentive.

Location perhaps not ideal for those wishing to explore the city of Swansea by foot as the centre is a fair walk away along a busy road. However, as a stopover hotel it is situated very conveniently - just off the A483.

We were in Swansea for the football so stayed here on a Saturday night. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist and were able to check-in early at 11am. Check-in was quick and easy.

The room was simply furnished in 'funky' Ibis style, really clean and functional. Comfortable beds and we even had a sea view (albeit with a quarry in front of it).

The bar was the most reasonably priced I've ever seen in a hotel with a pint of lager only £3.10

The receptionist ordered us a taxi to the Liberty Stadium which cost about £7.

In the morning, as recommended on trip advisor, we nipped round the corner for a McBreakfast.

Absolutely loved Swansea and the Liberty Stadium. Will definitely stay here when we play them next year!

Our room was well presented, clean with the usual facilities. Beds were comfy. Staff friendly. We wanted a low cost stay and it was more than we'd hoped. Definitely recommend. We were on the main road side so there was some traffic noise when the window was open, but not bad enough to disturb our beauty sleep.
