Anniversary Stay


I am looking to stay in Swansea for our wedding anniversary for one night in July.

I have been looking at the Oxwich Bay hotel and also Morgans hotel in the city centre.

Which would you advise? Or is there anywhere else you could suggest? We wanted to stay somewhere nice with food. I've never been to the Oxwich Bay hotel so I'm not sure how nice it is or the food?

Any suggestions would b welcome -thanks :) x

I have to ask what sort of hotel are you looking for as these two are in totally different environments? Morgan’s is in the town centre overlooking a busy road whilst the Oxwich Bay is on Gower and set in large grounds overlooking the sea. If it was my choice for an anniversary I think I’d pick the Oxwich Bay. A couple of other suggestions would be :



Hope you find somewhere to celebrate your day.

there's a restaurant on oxwich beach called the coal house about 5 mins walk from oxwich bay hotel http://www.thecoalhouserestaurant.co.uk/

other suggestions:-

"fairyhill "near reynoldston is high quality hotel with restaurant.

"patricks with rooms" in the mumbles

"little langland hotel" rotherslade

"tides reach" is a nice guest house walking distance to mumbles restaurants.

dragon hotel in swansea city centre has a brassiere also swansea marriott in the marina.

restaurants in swansea centre try chelsea restaurant, la brassiere, la parilla, grape & olive.

The Oxwich Bay is in a stunning location but we've never found the food particularly good, except for the breakfast. Food at The Coalhouse looks good and it is very close to the hotel, but I've only had a coffee there. If it were me I'd stay at the hotel (Room 10 is stunning) and book a meal at the Coalhouse (not sure what time it closes) or Fairyhill. You will need a taxi back from Fairyhill, which I think is about 4 miles or so up the road. The Gower is so much more attractive than the city centre; hope you enjoy it!

We stayed at the Oxwich Bay for one night. Our room was large and spacious away from the main hotel but all the better for that! Like others we didn't find the food that good, I would say it was more pub grub than anything else (we had Hunter's Chicken), nice enough for what it was but not what I would call a special occasion meal.

Can only echo the above comments. Oxwich Bay is purely about location.

Personally I'd either spend the day in The Gower & then check in to Fairyhill, or book in to Morgan's & then pop to a local bar after having a meal there.

I don't know Oxwich Bay so be guided by others. I last stayed at Morgans about 18 months ago. Food and service were first rate.

Someone also mentioned the Swansea Marriott. Please see my recent review; nice enough hotel but rather ordinary food. I wouldn't eat there for a special occasion
