The Gower Golf Club
Ranked #18 of 22 Hotels in Swansea
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

We stayed one night (Saturday) in this hotel. We'd been mountain biking all day so were looking for a comfortable room and a good shower. We had both but there was an engagement party on in the golf club which was very noisy (music and shouting) into the early hours. The breakfast was good and cooked to order with good service. Rooms need a bit of upgrade, carpets a bit tatty.

We recently got married and held our reception at the GowerGolf Club, we had family stay at the golf club and we stayed ourselves. The value for money was excellent, every single one of my family members was amazed at how nice the place was and how friendly and professional the staff were. All in all, an excellent day, night and stay. The food was excellent also, everyone commented at how delicious the food was...very very pleased, highly recommended!!

At £60/£70 per night for an en suite double with full breakfast this was excellent value for money.
With a bit of tweaking it could be fantastic.
The staff were lovely and the bed was clean and comfortable. Towels were white and fluffy.
A new carpet and a bit of attention to detail would help...but at this price they can be forgiven.
Great views and free golf after 6 pm kept the men very happy

Ideal location, perfect distance from the beautiful beaches and very friendly and helpful staff.
We were looking for a short break to relax in some peace and quiet, play some golf and revisit the Gower with those fantastic sandy bays. The hotel was great value for money with golf thrown in for free after 6pm. The full English breakfast was excellent and the staff were very chatty and helpful. We did have some reservations about going there after reading a couple of nit-picky reviews... however, for us everything was perfect - if you are expecting 5 star accommodation then you should pay those prices. Our room was spacious enough and the bed was very comfortable the bathroom was adequate - we were here to play golf and go to the beach not spend our holiday in the bathroom. The staff were helpful and cheerful and we will gladly return as soon as we can.

I stayed here a week ago for just one night. The room was fairly clean but the bathroom gives the impression of being dirty because much of the grouting is dis -coloured brown or missing. The accommodation is okay but would not want to stay more than one night. The shower and tray desperately need replacing. Bedroom carpet worn and also dirty/dis-coloured. Breakfast was fine other than cheap bread used for toast. Having said this the staff are very nice here and the location is lovely. We were told this was a 4 star but its more like a 2 to 3 star standard.

The bar area is pretty grotty, furniture with holes in and some very old wood floors. This really could be a very nice place but desperately needs some money spent on it. We paid £60.00 for the night which was a reduced price so we can't really complain and I read the comments of other customers who also stated that the place needs up-grading so I wasn't dissappointed.

I stayed at the Gower Golf Club when attending a nearby wedding. The Club's website doesn't really do it any favours and I wasn't expecting much. However, the staff were friendly (although they seemed to be a little short-staffed), the room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was also good and freshly cooked.

I think at £120 for two nights for two people including breakfast this is great value for money. Yes, the decor is a little tired (and the walls are quite thin; we were lucky our 'neighbours' were quiet) but the 'essentials' are good.

This was our third visit to the Gower Golf Club for Sunday lunch, and as usual they didn't let us down. The food is the closest we've had to home cooked, lovely fresh veg, and real gravy. And the serving staff are all lovely and polite. We would definitely recommend the golf club for Sunday lunch.
