I have had some work at Swansea University and this guesthouse is the nearest walk-in distance hotel one can get. Room size was just ok but otherwise clean accommodation and staff was very helpful.

Very dirty, smelly, unconfortable hotel with very bad service. Couldn't stay there I had to go and find another hotel. Management refused to give me refund so will have to battle for it. Would not recommend to anyone.

Fair price, not expect too much. Welcoming receptionist, clean room and bathroom facilities, basic tea and coffee in the room, few minutes walk to the beach. But the room smells of damp, even I left the window opened. And the mattress was not really comfortable.

We stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting the mumbles. Short driving distance to the mumbles pier. Offers parking outside b&b from 4pm to 8am on single yellow line but on very busy main road. Parking not reserved therefore not guaranteed. Room was small and basic but on the whole generally clean and worth booking a room with an en...

Thank goodness we only booked for one night. The building is run down and shabby. The rooms very tiny and outdated, there were stains on the walls and a very musty smell through the whole building My sister-in-law had a single room with shared bathroom - the soap dispenser didn't work, empty paper towel dispenser. Our "en-suite" was so tiny...

It's what you expect from a 3 star guest house. It was clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful (trying to contact a taxi) and the rooms were fine. Just on the sea front so lovely view from some bedrooms. Only issue we had was the end of one of the beds broke because of bad DIY to fix...

Reached late but was welcomed by the guesthouse manager. Breakfast was cooked nicely. Room view was one of the best I have ever experienced. Few mins walk to Resturant . Swansea University was walking distance
