I made a 'garden' booking, on the 29th April, for my wife & I whilst in Gower to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. When we arrived we were told that there were no garden bookings and it was take away or nothing. I got an email reminder the day before to remind me of this booking. I am now getting a mail asking how it went. One star is generous as the Hotel totally failed to provide me and my wife the service they were offering.

Only second day after re opening an outdoor service. The staff were friendly, the food was good and the weather was ok i.e. cold but dry. It was nice to have a pint of Guinness for the first time in.................. a long time ! It was a party of four. We enjoyed.

I was disappointed. Food was ok but covered in oil. Small, warm vodka abs diet coke in a plastic cup. No table service. Sat on a broken bench. Given the fact it was just reopened after months of closure, more effort should have been made.

Ordered mussels and although they were cooked nicely they came without any sauce. By the time a little pot of sauce arrived I had nearly finished the mussels. It was disappointing. The chicken kebabs, however, were lovely.

All staff very pleasant, helpful and efficient. It was no problem to change my booking time, plenty of space between tables and each table has a spectacular view. Umbrellas at each table will be useful when hot weather arrives! Can highly recommend the fish and chips.

Your waiting staff were great and very helpful but I’m afraid your chef is very sub standard in his / her ability to cook fish and chips. They were not great.

The Mrs and I had a fantastic time! The view, the ambience, the service and the fish was excellent! Love that it was dog friendly and there was ample parking space. Not sure what else to say, other than we look forward to visiting more often. Congratulations to all at the Hotel on the refurbished and preparation for safe, socially distanced dining. Thanks.

We have been coming here the past 4 years for Christmas and every year the vegan menu is bigger snd better . The restaurant manager is so clued up with it all and really helpful . This year sadly they was not much clue about vegan plus some things on the menu say vegan but there’s actually milk in them . I only know this because I asked about something being vegan and I was just given the allergy book to look through . My food was actually nice . I had Thai green veg currry . But if you don’t like aubergines you’re stuffed cos it was mainly aubergines . There was no vegan Christmas dinner as the nut roast has milk and egg ( never known this before 😭) Breakfast was a bit of a disaster . No soya milk or oat milk for cereal , just small cartons for tea or coffee but it’s that awful synthetic stuff that tastes nothing like soya milk( the one you get on the train ) . Thankfully I had my own with us as I had a hunch from looking at the online menu before we went there . No clue about dairy free butter / spread or what was vegan in the breakfast , we were given the allergy book again . Partner had hash brown, veg sausage and beans ( no tomato or egg ) and literaly that was it , 1 hash brown , 2 sausage and a spoon of beans ! The plate was half empty . But it clearly wasn’t the guys fault, they were really lovely , just not trained about the food . The hotel is beautiful and we will always return , but please research about vegan food and provide more options including breakfast . It will be so much easier for all involved and the customer won’t be left feeling awkward by having to ask so many questions . The room , view , hotel and surroundings were stunning 💚

Lovely weekend in December for two nights. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfasts delicious. Saturday dinner was excellent and Sunday roast also very good. All hot and very tasty. It would be a good idea to lay the table beforehand as each meal something was missing, just annoying when you have to wait for a fork or butter for the toast. All in all great value for money in very pleasant surroundings
