“basic but very good value for money”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Friendly family proprietors who don't make a fuss. It's basic, but has all you need if you are not going to be in your room all the time. We use it when we visit our daughter at the university and it has all we need; decent cooked breakfast, clean room and reasonably comfortable bed, and it is not expensive. Yes, the walls are thin, and the attic room, which we have been in twice, is small, but we only spend the night there. Close enough to walk into town (up hill on the way back}. Would not be suitable a prolonged stay (in the hotel) if you want the facilities of a large hotel, but you ain't paying the price!
Prefer this to the premier inn style hotel.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the loft, but if that is all that is available it's not a problem. It's seems t...

I was studing in Swansea and my parents come to visit me and stay in a self catering apartment, they love it. It's an amazing value, clean and well located near the shops ans pubs, and 5 minutes by car from city center.

Not a warm welcome, don't believe the website. rooms are unpleasant and walls are ridiculously thin. You will hear every word. Don't pay for the en suite, it doesn't have a shower. No decent sized towels provided, had to dry myself on the hand towel.

The property is in an elevated position with gardens at the front.We stayed for two nights in a self catering apartment (No.3) on the ground floor but at the rear of the property. There was absolutely nothing we could fault with it. Cleaners came in daily including changing the towels. You could however hear people walking around in the apartment above. Doors tended to be slammed. However we had two undisturbed nights. To be sure of a parking space get in before the work day ends. We walked into the city centre, about 25 mins and also walked to the sea front, about 15 mins.
There are a few shops nearby.

I stayed in a self catering studio which was bright, clean, and airy. The shower room while small had everything that was needed and main room was a very good size with a kitchen area containing cupboards, cooker, microwave, fridge and everything necessary. In the main area a sofa, tables, TV, and table and chairs in the bay window. Along one wall was a large wardrobe unit part of which pulled down to become a bed. Having slept on sofa or occasional beds before I had no great hopes but it was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, other than my own (I am prone to a bad back so was very relieved). There is parking at the back and at £40 a night for a solo traveller excellent value. There is just one point, there is no bedside light. Now I know that with a fold down bed it would be difficult, but it would not be impossible,and it would change the rating from very good to excellent. Either way it is still value for money.

Room Tip: Check that there is a bedside light

just stayed in a self catering studio and couldn't have asked for better - really great value - looked like everything was brand new and it was spotless - may be a little further out from the centre than where we usually stay but some lovely pubs within walking distance which made a change and less than a fiver to get a taxi into the city centre - we will definitely stay there again
