We booked into this pub/B&B as we were attending a family funeral nearby. To be honest we weren't looking for much as we were only going to be sleeping there. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised - the service was amazing - really, really friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms were spotlessly clean...

Family friendly and very good priced drinks. Regularly band playing with good range of different tastes catered for. Needs a few more months alcoholic beverages. Staff very friendly and customers once get to know are more than welcoming.

We stayed here after a family funeral, and we could not have picked better. The staff are fantastic and accommodating, they couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are lovely, I stayed in a family room, and it was massive! Loads of space, everything was clean and tidy and the facilities are excellent, even down to having plug sockets by...

A very warm welcome from Gareth and all his staff and customers made our stay a pleasent one. I could not fault the room very clean and tidy. As we did not know the area and which routes to ride out on Gareths knowledge of the best roads around came in very handy. Will most definately be revisiting The New...

Wonderful visit, cannot fault the food on offer nor can I fault the spotless room we were provided with. Live bands were to play over the weekend, brilliant night out. All staff were helpful and welcoming. Defiantly value for money and an overall very pleasant stay at The New Swan Hotel.

We had three rooms all clean and fresh with great bathroom facilities tea and coffee and even toys in the room if you had children. We had...

This was our choosen Base for the Off Road School and we couldn't have picked better. The owner Gareth is a biker himself and the bar is a tribute to motorcycling. The food and drinks went down a treat and the staff were all fantastic, very helpful and always smiling. We have some unfinished business with the ORS so we...

My wife and I were following an artist's trail and plumped for The New Swan Hotel simply because it was in the middle of the Tawe Valley Arts Week area. What a delight to discover a gem!
