Positive Reviews


Good location

Perhaps above all else, guests have found the location of this hotel appealing, often mentioning that the property is close to the beach as well as shopping and dining opportunities in and around the Mumbles area.


Friendly staff

Overall, guests have found the staff here is friendly and welcoming. There are a few reviews that indicate that the check-in process and initial reception could be a little more efficient but, aside from that, the service appears to be fairly attentive.


Decent breakfast

The breakfast here has typically been a hit with past guests. The quality and variety have both proved pleasing and guests have found the breakfast area clean and inviting.

Negative Reviews


Small rooms may disappoint

A fair number of guests mention that they found their allocated room was much smaller than they anticipated. Not all the rooms here are of the same size but some definitely seem to be claustrophobic as opposed to cosy,


What renovation?

This hotel's official website indicates that a huge amount of refurbishment has taken place. However, reviews and feedback about the property don't really offer the same opinion. Guests have found the property clean but rather dated and in need of maintenance.


Questionable suitability for mobility impaired

The hotel is also described as suitable for mobility impaired guests but this is again something that is disputed by guests. Reviews suggest that the hotel is a collection of previously separate buildings with a maze of corridors and uneven floors. This doesn't sound like it would be particularly simple for a less mobile person to navigate.
