Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I have stayed here on probably 3 or 4 occasions and I have even reviewed it on Trip Advisor on a previous occasion and unfortunately that is why I feel compelled to review it again in the vain hope that someone reads these and takes things on board. Firstly you may wonder why we have returned on various occasions. Put simply, It's Location is probably unrivalled anywhere in southern Britain. Nature created to location, but it seems that the hotel fails to make the most of its possiblities seemingly happy to provide the minimum they need to to maintain their 3 star rating. With its stunning views it could do so much more with it's exterior. I understand that it's subject to weather, but a lick of paint, some statically place flower pots around the patrons terrace a new fence between the main bar terrace and the patrons lawn area would be nice. New picnic benches. Just more effort to make the popular terraced area more pleasing to sit out and enjoy the stunning views in both directions. Worm's Head Hotel has so much potential, but could be so much better than it currently is.

Other points of note.
I believe they have refurbished the bathroom since our previous visits and they have done a nice job on them albeit an electric hairdryer right next to the shower door in room 7 seems a bit dodgy especially when its flex doesn't reach the mirror by the sink. They still have the dated pine wardrobes which if they insist on keeping perhaps could be painted and distressed to a so called 'shabby chic' style.
Although the staff were friendly we did have a few issues relating their food service. On our first night they stopped serving food at 20:00 eventhough the room booklet states 21 :00 and we had to cause a bit of a scene in order to get something to eat.
In the afternoon of the next day we ordered some drinks and fries, after about 75 mins of waiting we cancelled the fries as they never came. In the second evening they served Chilli Con Carne with yellow pilau rice, odd though still tasty enough.
Their menu is somewhat limited and a touch pricey at £14.95 for fish and chips.
We had two breakfasts, the first was a little anaemic, but the second was lovely, different chefs we presume.
In short The Worm's Head Hotel has so much more potential.

Room Tip: The car park and headland are NT so the hotel does not have its own parking. NT charge £6 per day...

Spent a lovely couple of hours here sitting outside with drinks and then a meal (average though maybe a little overpriced). I tried to use the toilets before leaving and was accosted by a short elderly staff member who asked me rudely if I was staying in the hotel and despite me saying I had had drinks and a meal and now needed to use the toilet, he attempted to stop me. I went in anyway and on the way out he ‘thanked me for my ignorance’. Is this normal?? Surely pub/restaurant customers should not be accosted rudely when trying to use the toilets. This man seemed to be enjoying his policing responsibilities pretty sure he’s never been on a customer care course...l

We visited here after a walk out to the headland. On entry there was a table set up for leaving contact details and to use hand sanitizer. When we visited it was outside table service only. We found a table and managed to order a drink using smartphone. I had to go to the bar to ask how to order food and got a paper menu and was told that someone would come to the table to take the order. The drinks arrived after 20 minutes but it was 30 minutes before we were finally able to place our food order. The food took another 25 minutes to arrive. I realise that we are in difficult times but it seemed like the tables in our area of the terrace were being forgotten. Our food was fairly standard but filled our rumbling stomachs! The plus point is the stunning views from the terrace.

We decided to head to Rhosili with friends that were down visiting from London, as they had never been before. We called into the Worm’s Head Hotel for lunch, only to experience the worst customer service, sticky floors/ tables and grumpy staff. We ordered 4 pints of Pepsi Max, which were poured from a shop bought bottle, which they charged us £3.25 per glass for! The hand sanitiser stations were filled with what seemed to resemble water, without any alcohol in. Most staff members did not have any face masks on and were very unfriendly. Such a shame as it is in a beautiful location.

Worst meal out we have ever had based on service, and attitude around coronavirus. First off, very basic but nice food. My jaw literally dropped when they said it was £91 for food and drink and when I asked they said they hadn’t signed up to the eat out to help out scheme, this seems ridiculous and it felt like because there are very few other options in the area for customer they can do what they like.
Secondly the food all came out in takeaway containers and drinks all served in single use plastic cups (even the wine!), I went back to get more drinks and asked to use the same cups (as I hate single use plastic) and they refused. I don’t think that this was solely due to Covid-19 and felt it was laziness as the most expensive item on the menu (the steak) did come on a plate so they aren’t even consistent in their approach to Covid. Why would a establishment in a world class location want to belittle their food quality by shoving it in a takeaway container and also add to the plastic pollution issue that affects the main focal point of the Hotel?
Thirdly the staff behind the bar were rude unprofessional and unapologetic for not taking advantage of the eat out to help out campaign and for the use of plastic cups to serve some quality beers at an extortionate price.
I would advise anyone thinking of going here to avoid it until there is clear indication they have changed their money grabbing and frankly unethical ways.

We stayed at the Worm’s Head hotel for two nights, had a wonderful time and felt so well looked after. The staff are incredibly professional, friendly and kind. From Mary and the team on reception to Santos in the restaurant and Sam in the bar, nothing was too much trouble. The food is excellent in Bar Helvetia and the restaurant both with views over beautiful Rhossili bay and it’s incredible sunsets. It’s also the best location for walkers looking to visit the Worm’s Head at low tide, especially as early in the morning you can have the walk up to it almost to yourself and the beautiful local wildlife. It’s a stunning part of the Gower to visit and an area of outstanding natural beauty so really worth a trip. We would definitely recommend the hotel. The kindness, helpfulness and good humour of the staff team makes you feel very relaxed and at home and there were very comfy beds so we all felt well rested too!

This hotel is set in the most stunning location with fabulous views and we have visited the pub there for the past five years. We booked to stay overnight and whilst the room was very clean and spacious, the service was terrible. We arrived at 1:45 and were told no check in until 2:30 so went for a walk and got back at 4:30 by which time nobody was on reception and you had to join the queue in the bar to check in. The chef had apparently walked out a few days earlier, so whilst we could sit at the table we had booked in the restaurant we had to again join the queue in the bar to order. Most things on the menu were not available and the food was pretty awful. The staff were clearly fed up and it was impossible to raise a smile from anyone. The only highlight was the cooked breakfast which was very good, however the coffee machine was out of order and the filter coffee was tasteless. Checking out we were asked if we enjoyed our stay - we explained how disappointed we were about the meal and the generally poor service and reception just said “we can’t get the staff and it’s the same for everyone”. This hotel has so much potential, it such a shame that it’s run so badly.

I surf here all the time and rarely ever go in because of the experiences I've had before. That should tell you everything.
Made the fatal mistake of taking my wife here last night as we didn't have the kids and the weather was amazing..regretful!

It was bank holiday Monday, sunny and busy.. All granted.. But it wasn't Glastonbury and shouldnt have taken 30 mins to recieve two simple drinks. We arrived 30 mins before food orders stop (7pm) so went to find someone to order as nobody bothered coming to us (I was told to look out for the guy in black) and all staff were in the land of nod. It's an absolute travesty that this place isnt in the hands by people who know how to run a hotel and pub as the view is out of this world.

We came for a relatively quick beer and ordered loaded chips and ended up staying 90 mins, 60 mins of that waiting for the order to arrive. Again, busy and a bank holiday but it was shambolic how little drinks came out to our area and the customer service. I'll never understand why people like this bother opening and trying to run the business when they have so little care and happiness for it? Just sell the place for a fortune and move on so a proper outfit can come in!

The view from the beer garden of this pub is simply stunning, and absolutely worth the prices charged for the drinks. Over many visits, we have generally had drinks and a lovely meal there whilst enjoying the amazing view. Unfortunately this June 2021, Covid seems to have made the pub more difficult to access, with queues at the front door until capacity was made spare. Sadly, food was not available to order until 6pm, which meant that we had to move on without eating this time. Remains a very very special place to sit, relax, have a drink and appreciate the beautiful scenery. Owner very friendly and hospitable. Will definitely return.

We stayed just one night in room 3 which was just lovely.Views from both windows..perfect! We were nervous to be away from home but all covid guidelines seemed to be in place, with track & trace details taken and a one way system at the bar. Couple of tweaks needed to ensure compliance during busy times but we felt safe. We ate at night.. very nice 'pub grub' and a very good breakfast in am. Everyone respectful of distancing when getting teas/toast etc. We also had very yummy fish and chips on the terrace with friends before we drove home. Staff attentive, polite and very friendly. Of course, the view is the absolute selling point of Wormshead and did not disappoint.
Thank you for a lovely stay.

We arrived at lunchtime and had a beautiful meal outside overlooking the beach. The room was ready when we had finished. Checkout was 10 or 11 but phone them and they will tell you. You have to pay for parking. Enjoy your stay!

Yes there is a chip shop in Seahouses which will do gluten free fish and chips, they told me they could do it when they were not too busy, i.e. not on a bank holiday or busy weekend. We went on a weekday and it was fine. It was the one on the roundabout in the centre of the village, sorry I can't remember the name of it but it was NOTthe one the Hairy Bikers recommend. We had a very good meal and service.
