Huge double bedroom with en-suite
We have a very attractive, light and airy bedroom in the attic of our Victorian House in Swansea, Wales. The room has lots of character, with wooden floors and exposed beams. It is a self-contained floor. Guests enter through the front door and go straight up the stairs to the room, which gives a considerable degree of privacy, peace and comfort. The room is for one or two adults only and we have no facilities for babies or children.
The room has a kingsize bed, sofa, TV, microwave, kettle, fridge and tea and coffee. There are four, inexpensive breakfast cafes within 2 minutes walk. (Sorry I don't do breakfast!) There is an ensuite shower room and excellent Wifi. Bedlinen and towels are provided. Central heating.
On road parking if you have a car, or public transport two minutes away if you don't.
We are in a great location within walking distance of all Swansea's amenities, including the University. The area is home to many students in term time. It is a young, vibrant and very safe and friendly part of Swansea but don't expect posh or swanky!! It is 5 minute walk to the beautiful, sandy beach and 10 minutes to the town centre. It's a 10 minute drive to Gower peninsula and some of the UK's best surfing beaches. It is a 2 minute walk to bars and restaurants: where you can get everything from a full Welsh breakfast to a Chinese, Indian, French or Middle Eastern dinner. There is a really good theatre 10 minutes walk. There is a water sports centre on the beach where you can learn kite surfing and paddle boarding. We are 1 minute from Wales's best ice cream parlour - Joe's - and fish and chips and pizza take aways.
We are about 15 minutes walk from Swansea Leisure Centre and the Marina and this is another area where there are plenty of cafes and bars and also the Dylan Thomas Theatre. This is also the site of the National Waterfront Museum.. There is a Boating Lake on the seafront and Crazy Golf. There are cycle paths along the seafront (National Cycle Path 43 on the seafront is a 5 minute walk) and you can hire a bike 2 minutes walk from our front door. We are also on the Wales coastal path, which now goes right around the country. There is also the lovely Singleton Park with it's ornamental gardens. We are 3 miles from the seaside resort of Mumbles - a bus ride away, but it's also possible to walk there, along the sea front. There is a bus stop just round the corner with buses to Gower peninsula, the hospital and the university.
Guests have their own bed-sitting room and en-suite shower. There are also cups, bowls, plates and cutlery, a fridge, microwave and kettle in case you don't want to eat out all the time. The room does not come with full kitchen facilities but there is a launderette in the next road if you need to do some washing.
Interaction with Guests
Guests in our home have complete privacy. We are very happy to chat if our visitors want to talk to us but, if they do not, then we don't mind a bit!
Young, vibrant, multi-cultural neighbourhood with lots of student accommodation, pubs, restaurants and things to do and see. There are some wonderful Asian shops selling food from all over the world. It is very safe and friendly but not what most people would call
Swansea has an excellent bus network and the stop is 2 minutes from our home.
Other Things to Note
We have two dogs called Billy and Barney. They are quite large but very quiet, polite and well behaved. They never enter our guest bedroom. They do, however, live in the house and at some point guests are likely to bump into them snoozing in the communal hallway! If this is culturally unacceptable or you are uncomfortable with this in any way, you might not enjoy our home!
The room accommodates one or two ADULTS only!
Room was exactly as described and I concur with all the other reviews. Bed very comfortable, room and ensuite very clean, appreciated the fresh milk in the fridge and the television.
Sue was very hospitable and easy going. Great location and would definitely stay again.
Sue was a lovely host! She met us on a drizzly day after we had been camping/hiking and staying in hostels for what seemed like forever. Sue's double bedroom was large, comfortable and very welcome. The bedroom itself is located near the top of a lovely home in a fun part of Swansea, with lots of restaurants, pubs and sights nearby.
Sue was very gracious and welcoming -- she even took the time to let us babble about our travels and offer us some (very welcome!) advice on lovely places to visit near Swansea.
The room itself was very comfortable, clean and warm -- with a spacious en-suite bathroom/shower. While there isn't a full kitchen, Sue has obviously put thought and effort into making her guests welcome with all of the fixings we needed to make breakfast.
The room was very quiet and peaceful -- lovely night's rest!
We would definitely recommend this room!
The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable, was a quick visit but sue was very welcoming. We had out own space as the room is right at the top of the house which was nice
Nice, clean and huge room!
Sue was really kind host, I only stayed in Swansea 1 day but I should have to stay in Swansea more days.
I'm so sad I didn't have time to walk along the seaside.
Everything as described! Sue and her husband made me most welcome. Lovely people. The room was spacious and comfortable and had everything required. Had a lovely week and would highly recommend!
We stayed two nights at Sue's, and had a pleasant time. We only briefly met Sue a few times during our stay, as we were out most of the time, but she was a welcoming and friendly host.
The location is great and the room exactly as described, most importantly the bed was very comfortable.
I'm a hypnotherapist married to a social worker. We have two well behaved dogs and do a lot of walking. We are relaxed and peaceful people who believe the best way of life is to 'live and let live'. I suppose we are sort of aging hippies...and we enjoy welcoming visitors to our home in this lovely part of the world. We like to meet people from all different countries, but you can be sure that we always respect guests' privacy!
