There was nothing unique in this hotel. Very expensive for an old and out of date hotel.

Busy hotel in need of updating. Carpets in rooms and communal areas are dirty and stained. Beds clean and comfortable. Breakfast made to order.

great hotel for town center

Pros: close to town center
Cons: The rooms could do with a little updating
Location: we booked this hotel for its position of being an easy drive to the mumbles and on to the gower
the breakfeast is excellent You can walk to town center in about 4 minutes. The bar was ok lots of hen and stag partys no problems .The rooms are comfortable but very basic for a 4 star The lifts are small only take 3 people. The staff are polite . when you book this hotel though you will be charged extra for parking your car on arrival

Needs a refurb!

The hotel is tired. It needs a refurb. Cleanliness was not great either. Dusty in the corners and bathroom smelly. And it has the smallest lifts ever? Two three people lifts for a seven storey hotel, doesn't make sense. Breakfast was good.
