ROOM 420 - Really looked forward to our night, but was very disappointed. Room smelled like toilet/sewage. Furniture filthy, make up table, drawers and handles were dirty and sticky! No 'designer' toiletries as specified by website (just a tiny soap). Only a 'sticky' menu for the restaurant, nothing for the pub, nothing for room service. No pricelist etc for the health spa (for massage). Not even information in case of fire! Huge gap under the bathroom door.
I expected more to this hotel. Had much nicer 'cooked' breakfast in other hotels. After having a lovely afternoon/evening in Swansea, we returned to hotel at approx 11.30pm. I asked reception for a menu for room service. I was told this service finishes at 9.30! The website states 24 hour room service. She told us to ring for a takeaway if we were hungry.
All in all, not the best accommodation and I would never rate as 4 star. Been to nicer 3 stars in the area. What a shame.
On a good note, the SA1 area is still under construction, but is going to be gorgeous when finished. Just a few minutes walk from here is a gorgeous restaurant La Parilla, a Thai restaurant and a beautiful art gallery/wine bar called Ice House. Lovely seating outside. From there, you can walk over the bridge and will arrive at the bottom of Wine Street, for more bars and restaurants.
