... houses, a restaurant and a tiny station. The tide was out so we were greeted wide a wide expanse of mud flats. Mum then felt the need for a Welsh ice cream so we headed to Burry Port, would you Adam and Eve it!! the lighthouse cafe was closed, boo so no ice cream. We wandered around the harbour. Fell in love with a 12 week working cocker spaniel called Baxter, who needed a home, so very ...
... golden sands and is called Cefn Sidan, there are 8 Wildlife trails with set routes plus beach walks, a natural parkland, a corsican pine forest and a conservation pond with bird hides. We had a lovely walk around the park, saw some very interesting trees and foliage, there were hundreds of butterflies and dragon flies. When we came over the dunes, we were met by the biggest beach any of us had ever seen, ...
Boo, its drizzling today, so we have decided to stay local. So after a relaxing breakfast we headed to the industrial museum. It is open for 8 months of the year, we were greeted by a nice young man and told just to wander around and its free to enter, what more could you ask for. There is an amazing collection of old machinery from the tin plating past, it looked like it was a very hard life to have had. There was also some references to ...
Chilled in the house this morning waiting for the folks to arrive. In the afternoon Ris and I re-visited Burry Port. The sun surprised us by coming out, so Ris donned his swimming gear and set off to the end of the stone harbour for a swim, the tide was out but beginning to come in at the rate of knots and boy was it strong. We then basked in the sun for a bit, watching the tide fill the port, then wandered to the lighthouse cafe for a cheeky ...
... it has wooden floors and sky lights. There are 4 double bedrooms below with various showers and sinks and a independent toilet. Downstairs there is a rustic kitchen with an amazing hand crafted work top. The old pub toilets are in the garden as well as a separate annex. To the front there is a shop space and a bathroom, this kind of looks ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dragon Hotel Swansea
Not at weekends
My wife and I stayed one night in this hotel. Unfortunately it was saturday night and the noise in the hotel and outside was horrendous until 2.30 am. The traffic outside was racing along the dual carriage way making as much noise as possible. The double glazing gave no protection against the sound level. There was also a party of local oarsmen and their partners staying who had no consideration for other guests. Doors banging and shouted conversation lasted until 3 am.
Otherwise the hotel was very good and we would use it again but not at weekends!
Compact rooms to say the least.......
Stayed here for a couple of nights in January. Found the rooms to be very small and could not work out why there were no doors on the wardrobe!
When I ordered room service it arrived soon enough but since the passageway between the front door and the room was so narrow, and by the way this is where the doorless wardbobe was, the staff member had great difficulty carrying the tray. Needless to say, he bumped a wall and the glass of red wine I had ordered with my meal had nowhere to go but all over my clothes hanging up in the doorless wardrobe.....aahhhhhh!
No offer to clean the items was made!
There are better hotels in the area, even ones with doors on the wardrobes!
Why did I stay here?
Stayed here for one night on business in late October. Aware that refurbishment work was going on. Room was recently refurbished and nicely done, shame about the rest of the hotel!
Was kept awake for agood part of the night by hoards of kids staying there running out of control, Hotel Management didn't want to know.
Breakfast was impossible thatnks to the unsupervised kids and theire equally unsupervised teachers hogging the entire restaurant. Checked out early in disgust. Hotel has offered me a 50% discount on my next visit - they are certainly being optimistic!
Room - OK, Hotel - dire, Management - You're joking!
Booked two rooms for business meetings in Swansea. Finished early on the Monday booked in at 2.30pm thought I would have a knap before a further meeting in the evening. No such luck the noise of builders knocking down walls was constant could not get any rest at all, was not warned of this when booking in. Rooms incredibly shabby (maybe because we booked the deal through the internet)with paint peeling off the ceiling, bath was dirty. Breakfast was not included in the price. Staff were unfriendly would not recommend to anyone.
Just stayed at the Dragon with my husband for 2 nights. Great location. The hotel is undergoing some renovations, luckily not at weekends. On arrival they made a few mistakes, they only had our reservation down for 1 night not 2 but this was quickly rectified. We also booked a smoking room but were put in a non smoking room and told we could smoke! We stayed in room 504, the room was a let down, very tatty and worn. The chairs were dirty and ripped, the furniture had seen better days, the bathroom sink had visible cracks and was held to wall with lots of silicone. The bed however was spotless, thankfully. Hopefully they will update the rooms during the renovations, they need it!! We did had a good room rate including breakfast. Breakfast was fine, the usual but nice and fresh. The brasserie in which it was served was very nice and the staff attentive. I don't know if I would stay again, no great complaints just lacked something maybe if the rooms are updated I would consider.
Not Too Bad !!!
I only stayed one night but I was happy with the room and location of this Hotel.
There is an internet cafe' accross the road and a stack of good Indian Resteraunts in the area.
There is no bar fridge or Air-Conditioning which was a bit of a let down but apart from that I have no complaints.
My wife and I stayed in this hotel with a small baby and the staff were amazingly helpful, the food was also excellent. Thanks!
This is formerly the Holiday Inn Swansea and is slap in the middle of the city opposite a roundabout with lots of traffic. It is an uninspiring matchbox of a building, probably built in the 1970s as a Forte Post House. It has been under new private ownership since January 2005. The new owners have obviously spent some money improving the public areas of the hotel.
Excellent staff with very good health club facilities and a true city centre location, function facilities also outstanding.
Decent business accommodation
Decent, serviceable accommodation. Centrally placed, but car parking rather limited. Food very good - above the run of the mill.
