    If you are looking for a chic boutique hotel in the heart of Mumbles night life, then Cafe Valance is the place for you! The rooms were decorated to a high standard as was the entire hotel - the staff were friendly and very helpful, with great recommendations on where to eat. 10 out of 10 from us

    The room wasn't huge, but given the location they were sufficient Breakfast is only continental, but great variety Our room was on the top floor, at the top of the stairs, so be aware of this, but this is only a minor negative

    Great service, the host showed us to our room and checked with us that we were happy with our room. The room was tastefully decorated, extremely comfy bed and some special touches for our anniversary which was much appreciated. We had a very warm welcome:)

    Bed comfortable, good range for breakfast ,which was good as it was continental.

    Room quite small, initially had a problem parking but once a space was made available behind the premises it was ok.

    Good location for Mumbles & Gower

    Noise from the street prevented sleep; staff were inflexible and unhelpful when we wanted to change the reservation. They chose financial gain over keeping the customer happy, which was their right, but we won't be staying here again or recommending it.

    The staff were lovely and the bar was pleasantly lively. I loved watching the world go by in the evening on the little patio area at the front of the bar. Very central for the attractions of the area - the Gower coast and beaches and retail therapy in Swansea

    Room rather small and cramped. As the weather was very hot when we stayed it made the nights a bit uncomfortable

    Boutique style hotel which made the an extra special one. It's the classiest place in Mumbles without a doubt. The staff were great and whilst the room doesn't officially come with breakfast there is one available free of charge. Room quality is high and space is maximised. We will be returning to Mumbles and to this hotel.

    Leaving!

    Staff was very friendly and relaxed. They carried our luggage up all the narrow stairs. Very modern bathroom. View of Oystermouth Castle from room. Comfortable bed. Car park in back (tiny). Nice selection of dishes for dinner. The cod/prawn cakes over creamed leeks was very nice.

    The shower was so modern that I needed instructions to use it. Figured it out after trial and error.

    Comfortable bed, immaculate room, great bathroom. Great welcome, attentive staff (especially Neil, for whom nothing was too much trouble)!

    Absolutely nothing to complain about.

    Relaxed and friendly feel with very very good people working there. The rooms were beautiful and very clean.

    Slightly pricey, we would have liked breakfast to start before 9am

    The atmosphere and food in cafe.

    Parking very difficult. There were no staff residing in the building, so you were on your own in emergency. The cafe and bar were closed all day bank holiday monday. Two sets of outside steps ( fire escape type) before ascending the internal stairs.

    We had a warm welcome,the staff were polite and helpful throughout the 3 nights we stayed. The room we had was nicely furnished, finished, clean and comfortable. It was in a nice location handy for all local amenities and shops. A terrific place to stay for a weekend away.

    The bar across the way was open til late and very noisy.

    The room was cosy & clean with hair dryer & tv. The beds were extremely comfortable! The bar downstairs was cosy with lovely fires & the food was very good.

    The room was very small. My sister & I asked for twin beds & we were staying for 3 nights so had quite a few bags and it was quite a squeeze! The breakfast was nice but only continental, not cooked, and though the bar & food was nice we didn't realise it closed at 5.30pm weekdays during winter, so we had no where but the small room to hang out in.

    Everything from the warm welcome the minute I stepped through the door was wonderful. The rooms were quiet and very comfortable, with those little touches that show that the owners really care. Everyone was friendly, courteous and ready to help, no matter the query!
