I spent 3 nights in this hotel, part of a group of 20 nature-lovers. Walking the beautiful Welsh coastline and interiour.
The first thing I saw as we arrived was that the hotel is situated close to the gambling hall and other noisy places. I had a room at the front, even though I specifically asked for a quiet room at the back. Terrible noise of passing traffic.The manager stated that all the rooms were full, although a notice "vacancies" was outside the door..... Another member of the group, who had not asked for a quiet room, did get a room at the back.... In the end our driver offered to swap rooms with me.
That helped.Then i only heard the noise from the kitchen-ventilation, which stopped when kitchen closed, well before bed-time.
I heard another member of the group who told the manager that she was troubled bij noises outside her room. Without checking wat it was, the manager denied what she said. It is a pity that this manager is not able to take feed-back seriously. His only reaction was negative defence.
Than the meals that were served. I had vegetarian food. It was all very tasteless and bland. Breakfast was okay. One of the staff did a good job, when serving us. He was fun.
All in all I was glad to see the back of this hotel and glad that we were moving on.
When I heard that once a year the hotel is taken over by a Harley Davidson club, I realised that that would be apropriate for this hotel. People who don't mind lots of noise and have not many demands as to food etc.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Gower Hotel sits just back from Saundersfoot vibrant centre - the ideal spot to escape for a touch of peace and quiet, yet close enough to step right into the life of the resort.Comfort and Quality are the key notes of the decor, a theme which extends to each of our 20 en-suite rooms, some of which have balconies and some of which enjoy views across the bay. We have a choice of twin, double and family rooms, all equipped with tea and coffee facilities, colour TV, telephone. A secure, off-street car park is behind the hotel. We're a hands-on business, so the staff at the Gower share the enthusiasm for understanding the value of a first class standard of service, and we're always ready to be flexible in our arrangements for group visits, small conferences or business meetings. All are welcome! ... more less
