My only concern was the extremely small size of the room. For an overnight stop it was adequate, but as a single traveller if I had been staying there for a few days it would have been a struggle. In the bathroom the shower was a challenge to get into & very difficult to reach the lower part of my body. I had to leave the toilet door open when 'seated'. Really I would say the room (3) I was in may be suitable for a child or very small Adult. Having said that the bed was comfortable, the staff were very friendly & efficient, the food was very good.

The property is very nice and the proprietors are charming, welcoming and very helpful. Breakfast is wonderful, I very much welcomed the veggie version of the English breakfast! :) The room was small, but well proportioned and very clean. It was out on the road, so you could hear the traffic, but that didn't bother me. There's a post office, local supermarkets, a cash machine and a pub and some restaurants within 2 minutes walking distance. Town centre is a little further away. There are buses to the bus station in the town centre almost every ten minutes and the bus stop's only 2 minutes away. Getting back in the evening is a little more difficult and I'd recommend a taxi from the railway station if you have luggage. However, the buses going past the hotel are going into Gower, for gorgeous cliff walks and the service for this part of Wales is perfect. All in all, I find it's a charming place, well run and I heartily recommend it.

We were very pleased with our stay at the White House. Mike, the owner, was so personable and so accommodating to our needs. Even lent us his GPS to aid in our getting to a dinner invitation in the countryside. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Swansea and wanting to stay in a B&B type of accommodation. And very easy to walk to many good restaurants!
