The Dragon Hotel, Swansea
Great Swansea Stay
Great hub to stay at for access to local city. Staff was excellent and room service was reasonably priced with wonderful selection. Bathroom and room very spacious with lovely amenities. Highly recommend!

We couldn't find it.
It late, very dark and the GPS couldn't get us there. Drove looking for about 45 minutes. Gave up and stayed at the Marriot...thankfully they had a room available.

Nice size rooms, but breakfast staff service: poor
Well, the hotel was convenient for the reason why I was there. Could easily walk from Swansea station to the hotel within 7-8 minutes. Ben, at reception, was very nice and made you feel welcome. The room was no frills, but it served its purpose. Good A/C if needed. Overall, the hotel was quiet and centrally located. Room itself was OK; large. However, the bed itself was a queen one with two mattresses. It never really agrees with me too well. Walls were scuffed here and there, but otherwise, it was good. Decided to have breakfast, and I must admit that I understand some of the reviews left behind by other customers. I told them the night before I would have breakfast, which brought the price down to 9GBP. A bit of everything on the menu, but by 9:10, there were no more hashbrowns, some of the offerings had empty plates, and the waiting staff seemed to just be floating by. I was told I could sit anywhere, but no one bothered to bring cutlery, napkins, cups... After a few minutes, I just went to get one from another table. Waiting staff seems to somewhat be floating by or just ignoring you... And whilst I was at the buffet, there were about 40 people scattered around 12-13 tables and about 5-6 waiting staff, so they could have paid a bit more attention to patrons' needs. Not impressed with their service. So, breakie to be skipped. Room was OK although bed not the most comfortable. Ben was great. Manager on duty on checkout could not be bothered to say hello/bye.

It's ok
Nothing really special here, room was nice, but nothing to write home about. Bathroom is alright, but no fan. The room itself was a good size, but the TV was pretty low quality so I ended up putting it on the floor so I could use the desk space. There is a small parking lot around the back of the hotel, which I didn't figure out until a few days into my trip.
