    Swansea Stay

    There was alot of noise on the Saturday night (which is not the hotel's fault). Basic, but did what it needed to do.

    Great!

    Reviews had mentioned the noise. Being city centre it was a noisy location but having the window shut completely blocked out all of the noise from the street. I didn't hear any noise from rooms either side but I may have been lucky. You could hear people occassionally walking in hall as you'd expect so if you are a light sleeper, best to bring earplugs. The room was warm - to be expected with the weather and reception offered a fan when i checked in. A previous review also mentioned no kettle but there was a kettle and tea making bits in my room. Good shower, great location, friendly staff, reception open 24hrs, can park at Tesco if book through one of the parking websites. Great stay, thank you!

    Lovely stay. Would recommend 👍

    Had a lovely 2night stay. Great room at great price. Central location is so helpful. 24hr access. Only slight down was quality of breakfast, mainly due to covid no buffet option. Instead limited choice & a juice carton. Also paper forms each day felt like a waste of paper.

    Not impressed

    I was expecting something different. The window's and curtains was dirty. We didn't had a hot food option because of covid.. We couldn't have a kettle in a room because of covid, but we could take the drinks from the reception to the bedroom because of covid(that makes no sense) the rooms had not enough natural light. the room was dark in color and bare (nothing on the wall just a mirror) staff very polite and professional. Breakfast very minium no English breakfast just continental option... Or bacon bap.... Apart of that it was ok
