“Great place”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

I stayed here whilst away with work,  upon arrival I was greeted my the owner who made me feel very welcome. The place is very clean and comfortable,my room was on the front which was bit noisy due to main road but not to bad, bed was very comfy and my room was spotless, breakfast in the morning was lovely. Highly recommend this place

My husband and I have just spent 1 night as we were collecting our daughter from Swansea Uni. Excellent room with very generous supply of tea, coffee, biscuits etc. Although we did not have the full English breakfast others around us did and it was well received. I had fresh fruit salad and toast. Good choice to suit all tastes. We will certainly return. Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: We had a front room which was spacious but there is road noise if you like peace and quiet. Rooms at...

This is a very good hotel in a nice location, with shops and restaurants very close by. City Centre is short walk or easy cab ride, as is the University. The owners are very friendly and helpful. I will stay here again for sure!

Room Tip: Some rooms face the street, but it is not very noisy.

Had a fantastic stay at The Alexander. The owner was one of the friendliest people you could have met, and the breakfast is something else not to be faulted at all. Even though there is not much to do in Swansea, staying in a clean friendly place still makes for a great time.

It's a bit far from the centre so it took me a while to get there.
Since I went in the room I felt I've done the right choose!

Tidy, cosy, everything is easy to reach.
The room 8 that I stayed has a view towards the Mumbles bay.
The desk set in front of the window just makes you want to sit down and write something.
This B&B almost becomes my favourite place in Swansea!

Very friendly staff members.
Big breakfast with diverse choice: fruits, snacks, cakes...

Easy access to supermarkets, banks, pubs... Very lively district at night. It's the place where all the students live that I was told.

I definitely recommend here.

Stayed here on a Friday night after searching booking.com for a room to stay in Swansea. The reviews and price made the decision for me and I wasn't let down. Friendly greeting, clean rooms, great location in Sketty (uplands) next to shops, pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was excellent.
