Wonderful visit, cannot fault the food on offer nor can I fault the spotless room we were provided with. Live bands were to play over the weekend, brilliant night out. All staff were helpful and welcoming. Defiantly value for money and an overall very pleasant stay at The New Swan Hotel.

a very nice pub/bb great home made meals no pre ready rubbish always home cooked. It is a very friendly place, clean and welcoming. Nothings to much bother. As it is a pub you will get noise from down stairs more so on weekends but that may be a good thing as saturdays and sundaysthey have live music. If you...

We had three rooms all clean and fresh with great bathroom facilities tea and coffee and even toys in the room if you had children. We had...

This was our choosen Base for the Off Road School and we couldn't have picked better. The owner Gareth is a biker himself and the bar is a tribute to motorcycling. The food and drinks went down a treat and the staff were all fantastic, very helpful and always smiling. We have some unfinished business with the ORS so we...

My wife and I were following an artist's trail and plumped for The New Swan Hotel simply because it was in the middle of the Tawe Valley Arts Week area. What a delight to discover a gem! The welcome was second to none. The room was spotless and the bed was very very comfortable. We ate our lunch in the...

I stayed overnight on a business trip to the the area, and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. This is a pub that does great food and good beer, the pub has comfortable rooms and a comfy bed my room had en-suit facilities with a good power shower. Breakfast was excellent. Will definatly stay again

I stayed at the New Swan for 2 nights while doing a motorcycle course. It is a busy pub, I was there Thursday/Friday before Easter, so it was a little busier than normal due to the holiday. The landlord, Gareth, & the staff were very welcoming & friendly. The room had 4 beds (1 bunk & 2 single beds), an...

Although we only had a meal there during this visit we have stayed overnight at the Swan on a previous holiday in the area. Our full-English breakfast was excellent, perfectly presented and brought to our table very quickly by one of the friendly waitresses. Highly recommended for a visit if you are in the area.

I always come here for a breakfast as it's the best around, and they have the option of white or brown bread which is nice! The food is always perfect, but sometimes there's teenagers in there that are really loud playing pool (no alcoholic drinks) may I add, and they stared quite a bit at my friends and I which...

Yet again another excellent stay. We have been visiting The New Swan now for 7 years and cannot rate it highly enough. The staff are always welcoming and our children feel totally at ease. We will without a doubt be staying again in the near future.
