We stayed for one night whilst visiting our son who has started at the University this year. It is a quiet location, but less than £4 by taxi to the centre, about seven minutes drive away. The family room slept three. The decor is a little dated, but the room was very clean, with a good selection of tea,coffee, biscuits... More

Extra details like card access to front door and room plus iron and board in room VG The shower/... More

I stayed here to help my son arrange accommodation for university. Steve was very helpful and friendly, and the room was perfect for what I wanted - it had a bed, tea making facilities and an en suite; basically all you need to put your head down for the night. The breakfast was great too (although not massively keen on... More

Just a one-nighter at this small, well equipped B&B. The room had everything we needed and the breakfast was extremely good with lots of choices. The shower cubicle needed a bit of TLC to get the tiles clean and sparkling again. Parking is a bit of a problem but we managed to find a place further along the road about... More

We received a warm welcome here. We had booked a family room which was comfortable enough, albeit very compact. Having said that it had everything required right down to a sewing kit! We only stayed for 1 night but it was enough to give us a taster that we happily booked a double room for our next trip to Swansea.... More

A very convenient location, economy pricing, and clean small rooms with a nice breakfast. It worked fine for me, but probably would not be ideal for a family vacation stay with children. Street parking can be a bit tricky, but we got a space only 10m from the door, so that worked well .

A warm and welcoming B & B. Friendly staff and a comfortable room a little compact but it has everything you would want in there. WIFI a little bit hit and miss but the staff did everything they could to resolve my issues with connection. Breakfast was offered but I was unable to eat it as I had to leave... More

This Victorian age bed and breakfast is clean and comfortable with a warm welcoming staff. Full English breakfast is served for a good start to the day. Walk up the hill to shops and Dylan Thomas' birth place, and down the hill towards the town centre and the docks. Great value.

A very comfortable B&B even in a single room. Always clean and everything you need in a room for a night away from home. Close to Sainsburys/Tesco Locals, good restuarants and a Costa. Large breakfast selection. Owners very helpful and welcoming. Would recommend if you need an overnight stay in Swansea.
