If you are looking for a dog friendly hotel in the Swansea area, than look no further than this hotel. It may not be the Ritz, but the Ritz does not allow dogs to wander all over the place, get fed sausages at breakfast and dog treats by the Bar Staff. I stayed in Room 40 which opened up onto...

We stayed for three nights, and felt that this hotel needed more proactive management. We were shown to our room, where the window was open and the room was cold. We tried to get the heating to work, but we found out that it was centrally controlled, and did not come on until about 6.45pm ( we arrived at 2pm)....

Although we had a confirmed reservation for a twin room with a sea view, the owner could find no record of the booking - because the staff were 'all on holiday' and he didn't know how to work the reception computer. He put us in a very shabby double room at the back of the building and promised us a...

I really couldn't fault the hotel on anything. The twin room and adjourning shower room was clean and while not vast, certainly comfortable for two. With the bonus of a door out on to a secure decked veranda the dog was also well pleased. The breakfast was excellent and all the staff are delightful, nothing seemingly is too much trouble....

We loved Mumbles and the surrounding area, but this hotel, formerly The Carlton, was not up to standard. We paid £90 for a partial sea view room which was the smallest room room we had ever stayed in and wasn't worth the money and certainly not as shown on their website. Staff weren't very helpful, breakfast OK

The hotel is very well located for anyone who wish to access the beach. It is a little bit old and the rooms are small, but this is counter-balanced by a great breakfast and the kindness of the staff. I had a job interview and everyone was so supportive. There are plenty of restaurants around

We were so lucky to find a hotel to accommodate seven of us, each with our own room, and each with a "sea view". The hotel was quirky and a bit of a tardis, with stairways and rooms in all directions within the hotel. My room was small, but compact and clean with a nice little alcove seating area overlooking...

We booked 3 rooms for a family get-together at the end of July, and considering the central location I thought the price was very reasonable.The rooms were simple, clean and functional. The layout of the hotel is quite eccentric and there are a lot of stairs, so people with limited mobility might have problems. Breakfast was good, plenty of it...

We arrived in Mumble on Saturday morning and set about looking for accommodation for that evening, not knowing the area we relied on TripAdvisor to assist. After exhausting the B&B options, we called into The Mumbles Carlton Hotel and we were relieved when they had an available room. However, our relief soon turned to disappointment when we opened the door...
