Old and tired property, restaurant advertised was closed on arrival, steep stairs. A crying nasty drunk in bar who had bought her own drinks and loudly verbalised dislike for visitors drinking with owner. Check in person was grumpy. This was our only cheaper accomadation and it felt like it.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback regarding your stay with us. We are sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience at the bar, this would have been an exceptional occurrence. Our bistro isn't open every night of the week, however we are more than happy to provide our guests with information on local dining alternatives - most of them within walking distance. We are working toward updating our room interiors and you may have stayed in one of the rooms that have not yet received a refurbishment. We apologise that your experience on this occasion didn't meet with your expectations and do hope we can welcome you again to provide a more positive experience in the future. All the best, kind regards Swansea Waterloo Inn Reception
