We stayed at the New Swan for two nights this weekend. The welcome was brilliant and the room outstanding. Clean, new and well maintained. You can tell that much hard work has gone into this hotel to make it as immaculate as it is. Breakfast was amazing, cooked to order and massive. Plenty of tea and toast too. The best...

Was made to feel very welcome, full English breakfast was spot on. Live music at the weekends, and live sport on the TV. Lots of beers to choose from. Stayed here as it is within walking distance of the BMW off road skills centre.

I have stayed at the New Swan Hotel on 2 occasions and will most certainly stay there again next time I am in the area. Clean comfortable rooms and outstanding customer service combined with true welsh hospitality made a very pleasant experience.

Stayed here when another local place didn't have space - was incredibly impressed with how welcoming Gareth and his daughter were. Room was decent for the cost, bathroom comfortable and breakfast in the morning delicious. Truly felt like they couldn't do enough for me. Would definitely recommend to any family/solo traveller/group of friends. Pub doesn't have car park but two...

Yet another fantastic stay at this hotel. Our children love it and the staff can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend it to all age groups. The hotel is well situated and the new trampoline park in Swansea was great because it was raining!! We will be back!

We booked into this pub/B&B as we were attending a family funeral nearby. To be honest we weren't looking for much as we were only going to be sleeping there. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised - the service was amazing - really, really friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms were spotlessly clean...

Family friendly and very good priced drinks. Regularly band playing with good range of different tastes catered for. Needs a few more months alcoholic beverages. Staff very friendly and customers once get to know are more than welcoming.

We stayed here after a family funeral, and we could not have picked better. The staff are fantastic and accommodating, they couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are lovely, I stayed in a family room, and it was massive! Loads of space, everything was clean and tidy and the facilities are excellent, even down to having plug sockets by...

A very warm welcome from Gareth and all his staff and customers made our stay a pleasent one. I could not fault the room very clean and tidy. As we did not know the area and which routes to ride out on Gareths knowledge of the best roads around came in very handy. Will most definately be revisiting The New...
