Swansea Marriott Hotel
Travel Blogs from Swansea
Honestly - I took some pictures on Swansea beach to prove there was indeed sunshine in February. And it was genuinely lovely.
Woke up this morning to another grey sky, but the weather report is promising sunshine, yey. Today Mum, Dad and I headed off to Dylan Thomas's house. The Boathouse is in Laugharne, Wales, in which the poet Dylan Thomas lived with his family between 1949 and 1953, the last four years of his life. It was in this house that he wrote many major pieces. The house was cute, it had the most ...
We had a relaxing morning, I made us all a cooked breakfast. Mum, Dad and I then headed off to Pembrey Park and nature reserve. Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Gower Peninsula and overlooking the coastal scenery of Carmarthen Bay, Pembrey Country Park has been transformed into one of Wales’s top visitor attractions providing a unique blend of coast and countryside. The beach has eight ...
... mining where children as young as 5 were put to work. In the evening Mum and Dad took Ris and I out for dinner to the locally popular Anthony's hotel, firstly it's not a hotel! It's a restaurant! And it's a little like sitting in someone's front room. It certainly had a local authentic feel and the men agreed served the best Welsh steak. I have begun to notice, the Welsh are in and out when it comes to going out for dinner, no messing ...
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 ...

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.
