“Visiting Family”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

A good budget hotel. Breakfast good. Staff are friendly and helpfull. Rooms are clean but floor tiles in bathroom need re-grouting and the hair dryer was on its way out! Had plenty of exercise,as the hotel is a little way from Marina etc. A good base for sightseeing around the Gower Coast.

Room Tip: 1st floor was fine!

Just spent one night at the Ibis Swansea. Thought it was good value if you book and pay in advance. Did not have breakfast so cannot comment on that. Room was fine, two towels and shower gel provided. As others have commented ideally you do need a car, but this hotel is a good cheap option to explore the Mumbles area.

On the down side, we did find the room very hot during sleeping. Would stay again but perhaps not the type of hotel to stay on a weekend when I guess it could be too lively for us.

Room Tip: We asked for room on car park side as others had recommended and it was quiet enough for us.
