Positive Reviews

Fantastic views from the property

This is the first thing many guests comment on. The guest house is in a dramatic setting that affords great views across Swansea Bay. Many of the rooms share this view, and guests lucky enough to be accommodated in them are certainly very impressed.

The breakfast is a hit

Though breakfasts at B&B's and guest houses often come in for a lot of praise, the breakfast at Tides Reach receives even more than usual. While guests are very happy with both the quantity and taste, they seem to be most impressed by the evident quality of the locally sourced ingredients used in the preparation.

Furnished to a very high standard

Again and again guests make positive comments about the décor and furniture in the rooms. They seem to be quite happy with the modern, but classy, furniture and décor, and are certainly glad it is not frumpy.

Negative Reviews

Difficult parking situation

Though there are some on-site parking spots, it seems they only suit very small cars, and are in any event difficult to secure. In effect guests must park outside. The neighbourhood parking is free, but several guests had trouble securing a spot close to the guest house.

Credit cards not accepted

While stated on the guest house's website, it could nevertheless be overlooked. The fact is that Tides Reach does not accept credit cards for settling the bill in person. Guests are advised to bring enough cash for this purpose.

Bathrooms are a bit small

Though not a major complaint, several guests mention that the bathrooms are a bit smaller than they would have liked. It's best not to try to swing a cat in them. You won't be able to, and will subsequently receive a visit by the RSPCA.
