I stayed at the New Swan for 2 nights while doing a motorcycle course. It is a busy pub, I was there Thursday/Friday before Easter, so it was a little busier than normal due to the holiday. The landlord, Gareth, & the staff were very welcoming & friendly. The room had 4 beds (1 bunk & 2 single beds), an...

Although we only had a meal there during this visit we have stayed overnight at the Swan on a previous holiday in the area. Our full-English breakfast was excellent, perfectly presented and brought to our table very quickly by one of the friendly waitresses. Highly recommended for a visit if you are in the area.

I always come here for a breakfast as it's the best around, and they have the option of white or brown bread which is nice! The food is always perfect, but sometimes there's teenagers in there that are really loud playing pool (no alcoholic drinks) may I add, and they stared quite a bit at my friends and I which...

Yet again another excellent stay. We have been visiting The New Swan now for 7 years and cannot rate it highly enough. The staff are always welcoming and our children feel totally at ease. We will without a doubt be staying again in the near future.

Stayed here for a local 60th birthday. Very welcoming staff throughout the entire stay and certainly a strong point for the place! Comfortable room, clean and all normal amenities but no room safe or wi-fi. Breakfast was huge and lovely! A few other points- the location for the 60th birthday was quite remote and the taxi driver did a dummy...

We stayed here for 6 nights and were very disappointed by the lack of room servicing and the noise at night times. Our room was only partially cleaned on day 4 when we specifically requested it and even then the bathroom was not cleaned. Apart from that we had to ask for dry towels and clean cups every day. There...

Many thanks for you review, our staff do say on arrival for weekend guests that the rooms are not always serviced on a Saturday and sunday and if new towels are required we are happy to provide some. The Wifi within the downstairs of the building is very sufficient and unfortunately we cannot to anything in regards to phone coverage....

Came by to meet a friend and have a meal. Chose the large breakfast as I hadn't eaten yet, despite it being Midday. It certainly was big! Any meal is composed of elements, and most of them were great and tasty! The sausages were a bit bland, and the tomato half had barely touched a grill let alone been cooked,...

This is a very nice inn with the rooms sited above a busy bar, however there is little to no noise from the bar to disturb your sleep. The didn't do food by the time I arrived but the Indian they suggested was great. Thank you! Breakfast was great too, I enjoyed the personal service and a local feel of...

We have stayed in this hotel many times and we always have a fantastic time. The children always feel welcome and it is an ideal location for a holiday. This time we went to the Gower for the day and it was amazing. Breakfast is always outstanding and our Canadian friend who visited got a true feeling of the Welsh...
