The rooms were very clean and cosy and had tea, coffee and hot chocolate available as well as biscuits and were replenished each day. As for the breakfast where...

Just read the recent reviews of Chatcoombe and thought of I'd just add to the list of raving reviews that this gem of a bed and breakfast deservedly receive. Although it's been some time since we were last here, the experience of Merle and Richard's warmth and hospitality went beyond expectation and has remained with us ever since. Situated in...

I only stayed the one night, but will definitely be back. Merle & Richard were the most warm and welcoming people you could hope for and the breakfast was second to none. Stick it high on your list of places to stay, you won't be disappointed.

We booked a room here purely on reading the reviews online & we certainly were not disappointed.

We stayed for two nights in late March 2014,and would have loved to stay longer. Having read the reviews on Trip Advisor we were not disappointed.Attention to detail is Merle and Richard's way. In a compact and cozy room with en suite shower room, and free wi-fi, everything you could possibly want is second guessed. There's a nice cold fridge...

We stayed for two nights with Merle and Richard (who has a cousin in every corner of the Gower) Sketty is a good springboard to launch into the Gower and there's no problem parking nearby. Merle and Richard are indeed wonderful hosts - the breakfast would shame large hotels, though I'd be tempted to cut down on the massed rank...
