We arrived at dusk in Swansea and drove the main strip to the sight of all the shops and restaurants saying 'we are closed.' The power was off all along the coast. We checked into Swansea cottages in one of the Sherbourne lodges on the upper floor. The attic room is large and well furnished with the centrepiece being a large spa ornately tiled. It was very nice and comfortable with a large bed, couch, tv and the spa all in the one open room. Good bathroom. All very clean. The first thing was to get some air into the place as it was hot weather. The windows only opened slightly on chain winders so it was difficult to get a good airflow going. No ceiling fans or a/c. A nice feature of this room is the very thick underlay and carpet designed to lower the noise for the groundfloor guests.
