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 of marmalades as you begin to wonder how old some of them are. Our room was small but well equipped with a slight condensation issue in the bathroom. We would certainly go back as by the time you leave you feel like you're related. Richard told us some great stories about his childhood and the trains into Mumbles and watch out for Merle saying, "Don't be sad now..." when the sad bit approaches.
