Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Davewedge Cannot fault our stay
Room was comfy and spacious, bed was comfortable and all very clean, sofa bed was large and comfy. Free wifi was great, shower was excellent.
Breakfast was fine, got busy at about 9am but to be expected, food was constantly replenished, great choice of food.
Location was great for The Gower, only short drive and easy to get to. Would stay again.

This is a well managed hotel with friendly and efficient staff. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. It is difficult to find a negative comment. We really like this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Seasider Clean and Bright and Functional
I stayed here for two nights whist attending a wedding. The Hotel is very clean, bright and the staff very welcoming, everything I have come to expect from Holiday Inn Express.
As others have noted it is very well positioned by the M4 motorway yet with very little associated noise.
I have to agree that the rooms could get warm but the fan seemed quite adequate to me.
The room was well presented and very clean at all times.
Although there is a Harvester opposite this can get very busy, the hotel does a very respectable limited menu in the 'great room' of the hotel itself, I found this to be just what I wanted.
One point to bear in mind is that this is NOT a central Swansea hotel, in fact it is closer to Neath. It may not be to suitable for guests without transport as the evening bus service from/to Swansea is somewhat limited, but adequate in the daytime.
The rate charged can vary but was very good at the time I stayed. I have been here before and would have no hesitation in returning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keew Very Friendly Staff
All staff, from reception, restaurant to housekeeping, were very polite and friendly, making us feel very welcome. Room was clean, as was en-suite. Breakfast was alright with a mixture foods and drinks. But there was only a choice of baked beans, sausage and scrambled egg for hot food. We would stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dazza47 Great Stay!
Had a great time with the family and partner last week, Staff were friendly and attentive and always smiling. Nothing was too much trouble. Housekeeping staff were very good - rooms refreshed everyday. Felt very much at home here. We didn't want to leave the place - had a great time.
Would have liked some bacon at breakfast though! And some proper coffee!

From the time we arrived until we left the experience was very pleasant. Staff very courteous and the room was clean and comfortable. Hotel was in a good location just off the M4 although if coming back late at night it was hard to find a parking space but at least it had car parking available without having to pay.

Our overall stay was good. The staff couldn't do more for us and were very friendly! The only thing I can think of is it would have been nice to be ale to use the virgin active swimming pool at a reduced price rather than about £40 for a family to swim! (Sofa bed wasn't very comfy)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rita52 Great location, great room and great service.
The Holiday Inn can easily be seen from the M4 and is only minutes from Swansea and Neath. The staff are very welcoming and the room has everything you need plus a little bit more. The only drawback was the Holiday Inn sharing the car park with a large pub/restaurant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfick2 Great value
Everything about our stay was just perfect, from the checking in, the room, breakfasts and staff.
We stayed over some of the hottest nights this year and were happy to find a fan in our room but were also asked if we preferred a sheet to the duvet and this was done.
Further supplies of decaff coffee were requested and supplied-no problem and having forgotten my razor a shaving set was provided-no extra charges.
We had evening meals at the attached Harvester resturant and were again, happy with the service, amount and quality of the food we ordered.
Would stay there again and would thoroughly recomend it..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nicci55 wonderful staff, excellent value,spotless.
we booked 2 rooms for 4 of us to stay overnight, booked ahead and took advantage of super good discount. I asked for early check in..no problem. We were welcomed and given adjacent rooms without asking, which was lovely. The rooms were spotless and spacious, the beds very comfortable. We were on a tight schedule and were glad to find a light lunch menu in the bar, food was good. The hotel was deliciously cool on the hottest day of the year, and really quiet, a very restful, pleasant stay. Breakfast was fine, no wait for a table and all items well stocked, hot food a bit limited, but cooked well. Would definately stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone staying in swansea, or wanting to stop along the M4.

Ideal location for our weekend visit to Swansea. Just far enough outside Swansea to be quiet, but not too far to access the Town Centre Restaurants. Perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kaymar53 Great service, location and accomodation
For a 'motorway hotel' this was great. In this price range the standard and facilities were excellent. The staff were excellent and very professional. I left a neck pillow and flannel behind and they had both been put aside so I could collect on my way back. I travel this way for the same purpose fairly often and will use again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IHGRegular Couldn't wait to check out
Checked in about 6pm on the 9th July. Not a particularly warm welcome from Reception, infact it felt like It was inconvenient that I was checking in. I was then advised that I was a platinum member to which I confirmed I was. Not quite sure what the point of that conversation was, as nothing followed. In most hotels I stay in there is some kind of reward for that, eg free wifi etc.
I got to my room, and the temperature was pretty unbearable due to the warm weather. The room wasnt air conditioned, so I went back downstairs to ask if there was a fan available. I was told by the receptionist that she would go and check and if there was she would bring it to my room. The receptionist never got back to me. I don't expect rooms to be air conditioned, but a fan would have made my stay more comfortable
There was no coffee in the room and everything smelled like it had been wiped down with a musty cloth.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KEW22 Lovely clean modern room, pleasant staff
This is the first time we have stayed at Holiday Inn and I will definitely come again. The room was spacious, bright and clean and the bathroom was lovely and modern. Wi-Fi was free in the room. There was a choice of pillows and the bed was comfortable. There is a Harvester next door where we had a lovely meal at a reasonable price. The staff were very friendly explaining times for breakfast, where the rooms were etc. There was plenty of choice at breakfast time. The only slight niggle is that at breakfast time it was was quite busy and there were not enough tables and the ones that were free had not been cleaned. Cutlery and some food items had not been replenished quickly enough and there seemed to be hardly any staff on hand to keep up with demand. However this was only a minor problem and it would not stop me coming again. I would definitely recommend this hotel as I had a very pleasant stay at a reasonable price. Many thanks!.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bell7 Thank You to your friendly and helpful staff
The staff booked us in quickly. They are friendly and helpful.
I asked the staff about local restaurants and the staff said they also had takeaway/delivery menu's available, and we were welcome to eat in the restaurant there. This was a great help as one half of our group wanted Indian and the other Chinese!! ..So we got what we wanted. The staff even came and cleared our plates afterwards with a smile.
We got caught out with my elderly father being unable to walk, so the staff were quick to lend us a wheel chair
We have stayed here a few times, and will be happy to return again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kembrokernyw Holiday Inn Express Swansea
Have stayed here on numerous occasions, both with work and leisure, visiting family further west. On this occasion I was using loyalty points. Standard Holiday Inn Express although not as good as some. Good location for travel being next to the M4. Staff pleasant. Room was quite stuffy and the small table fan provided did not really meet requirements. Having stayed in numerous Holiday Inn Expresses over the years breakfast here has always been at the lower end of the scale, as far as replenishment is concerned However, the hotel was adequate for a one night stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Orb1968 Lovely comfy bed and choice of pillow!
The reception staff were friendly and it was an easy check-in. Lovely, fresh, clean room with a choice of pillows! The layout of the bathroom was a good design due to the door for the toilet and bathroom facilitating the use of both.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MFM1 Convenient location
The location was convenient for my business meetings and to the expected standard of comfort for a HIE. The free WiFi for priority club members is a very helpful addition from last time I stayed. I do wish they would change the fruit jiuce as it is very poor. I was unhappy that the problem I raised after my first night with the plug jamming in the bathroom sink was not resolved. I reported at reception to a lady and a gentleman and presumed it had been sorted. No. It would have been nice to be told it could not be resolved and to be offered another room. I raised this again when I checked out.

Always stay here as it's so easy to get to, close to Swansea and good value. Manager is very friendly and helpful but other staff sometimes seem rushed off their feet.
Room has been cold lately but otherwise good standard rooms.
Priority Club members get 10% off first drink at bar.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trajan Hotel review
Stayed at this hotel a few times -excellent location for access to M4 or for short hop into Swansea. I had a ground floor room, the window faces striaght outside the car parking area and is level with passers by which I was not to keen on. Hotel was quiet - only con is wi-fi access which at £4.50 per hour is too much. You have to sit in the restaurant / bar area to access it for free which is not conducive to work with people talking in the background and the TV on. Food is okay but expensive for what it is.
