The house was clean and well presented. The mini fridge was not working and the heating bangs a lot ib the night which kept us up. Apart from that it is a nice place that was a short drive from amneties.

Very friendly and cheerful staff. Always a smile at breakfast. Breakfast was served quickly - the poached eggs were perfect! Good selection of food choices at breakfast - both hot and cold (even catered to vegans). Room was smallish, but adequate as we were out all day and only used it for sleeping. ...

Pocket Guide: Oystermouth Castle Oystermouth Castle Hotels

Oystermouth Castle occupies a particularly atmospheric vantage point, on a tall limestone ridge that enjoys sweeping views out over Swansea Bay. Built of Norman stone during the 12th Century, it sadly fell into disuse and disrepair from the Middle Ages onward, after a turbulent history, and in paintings it was often portrayed as a romantic ruin, pleasant to look at, but of little interest besides. Now all of that has changed.

In recent years, efforts to restore the former glories of Oystermouth Castle have received a significant funding boost, and a major refurbishment has seen the introduction of a modern, 30ft high glass bridge for visitors to walk around so that they can get a close look at the castle’s upper levels, including Alina’s Chapel with views out to the sea, and the discovery of many historical relics, from coins to hidden staircases, remnants of a painting and some graffiti, both of which may date back as far as the 14th Century.

Located near the village of Mumbles, Oystermouth Castle is now open to visitors from early April to late September and a visit is highly recommended. Besides providing a unique and long-forgotten link to aspects of Welsh history, the outlook over the Gower Peninsula is simply stunning. Just one further point to note - keep your eyes peeled for a lady in white. The castle is said to be haunted by a mysterious and tragic figure from the past.
