Prós: The warmth of the welcome, the fact that the house had been restored to its Edwardian origins with painstaking detail .... and the fact that it was Dylan Thomas's birthplace and family home. The proprietor had left lots of excellent information and books to bring Dylan Thomas 'back to life'.
Contras: The 'hotel' was really good. The only reservation I have is the pricing policy. We paid £300 for 3 nights for the entire 4 bedroomed house, yet there was also a charge per person if we exceeded 2 adults. This is very confusing! I think the charge should either be based on rental of the property, or price per person - not both!
Prós: It was a wonderful experience of days gone by. The children thought it was fantastic as it was like a museum without the barriers!
Prós: Dylan Thomas House is a work of art and you will never forget your stay. As soon as you cross the threshold you step back into Edwardian times and every room is truly fascinating. It is still a very comfortable hotel but also a truly different and memorable experience.
Fabulous location with panoramic views with easy suburban access. Very close to shops and coastal walks. We were sorry we did not stay longer. We would definitely consider returning if we are in that part of the world again.
Prós: Very comfortable cottage, spacious lounge area, very friendly and helpful staff
Contras: Lots of stairs - one staircase in and another narrow staircase inside down to the bedroom and bathroom. This was very awkward with luggage. We ended up leaving our luggage in the upstairs lounge.
