An hour later and Hallelujah, a different bank has finally granted me some cash! Yayyy, I have money for another coffee and bus back into Swansea. The day has been ******, ie. rainy foggy and all the rest so I haven't minded hopping from cafe to cafe today. I've enjoyed stopping into little home cooked kitchens, and organic local cafes and have found that they've inspired me ...
... this we will have a greater appreciation and love for the differences around us.
So with that said, give every place you visit a fighting chance. If I had just did a once over on Swansea I probably would have got a really bad impression but because I have been exploring like a maniac these past 24 hours I've had the opportunity to see so many good things about Swansea, mostly about the surrounding areas. Today I've discovered not only some beautiful nature spots ...
Have already ran my morning errands and I've got my Spanish sandwich packed, I'm off! Where to? Well, not too far this time and easily accessible by train. Heading to Wales, Swansea to be specific. I'm super excited to see how things are on this side of the UK, particularly the beaches! One quick train change in Bristol and I head to my destination. As I pass the Cardiff Central station which is pretty smack dab in the centre of the city I think ...
Woke up to blue skies and drove to Devon arriving around lunch time. Great views across to Wales from our cliffside accomodation. We came here to ride the Lynton to Lynmouth cliff railway but there is a lot more to see and do and we could probably use another day. Roads between these 2 close together villages are ridiculously steep and barely wide enough for one car. You can't get out of first gear in places. Wish I had hired an automatic. The views are definitely worth it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Swansea Marriott Hotel
Am very biased of Swansea & surrounding areas because it is my home town. The Swansea Marriott is a great place to stay for business & pleasure. Have stayed many times over the last few years & is so pleasant to see the same staff time after time.
My family stayed at the Swansea Marriott Hotel for 4 nights during Easter. We booked connecting rooms and got it. The hotelīs location is perfect with easy access from the mainroads and next to the citycenter. The staff was absolutely positive and helpful and always smiling!
Second stay at this hotel and had a great time yet again. We received a complimentary room upgrade and the room was brilliant, huge bed with excellent views of the marina and Swansea Bay. Found all the staff to be really helpful especially reception. Will definitely go back.
Hotel is just starting to show signs of tiredness, but the service by staff more than compensated. Good quality rooms, good location and good food.
There was even a hotel cat the welcomed you as you approached the hotel.
UK is often not the place to receive good quality service, but praise is certainly due to all the staff at the hotel
Great location, high standards
We stayed at this hotel in July, 2003. It was in a great location, next to the Marina. The amenities were plentiful, the room was very nice, quiet, clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was a nice touch. Definitely up to standards for the business traveler and also a great break for a holiday.
Would definetly return.
The Tesco/Marriott points scheme is unbelievable value. For £30 worth of Tesco points we had £120 knocked off our 2 night £100 per night b & b bill.
A very nice hotel with clean rooms. The staff was very helpful with directions. Great breakfast buffet included in the price.
Arrived late for a mtg the next day. Staff could not be more helpful with room service and with a smile too. Very comfortable, clean and quiet. Would stay here again.
Stayed three nights in an attractive, clean, quiet room with pretty views of the marina. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice pool for the rainy afternoon. Easy walk to town center for shopping, restaurants, and excellent bus service. Lovely walk along bay with beautiful views. It would have been convenient and helpful if a computer was available for visitors (even if you had to sign in to use) - and I think the hotel price should have included continental breakfast. A good choice for our first visit to Wales.
Can't fault it
This must be the best hotel in Swansea. Right next to the marina and virtually on the spacious beach, but central (10-20 minutes' walk), well appointed rooms and a decent swimming pool. This is the only hotel I've stayed at that provides you with two hairdryers, thus reducing competition among partners in the post-shower rush to get ready. The breakfast was excellent and served in extremely pleasant surroundings. Wish I could have stayed longer. The only irritant was the minibar, which charges you not only for items consumed, but also for items moved around in the fridge: it's that kind of technology.
