Positive Reviews

The Guest Rooms are more Luxurious in Person

The guest rooms at the Dragon Hotel are large, well-decorated and very clean with big, comfortable beds. Some guests have reported that they didn’t expect such a level of luxury considering the small price they paid for the room.

Located in a Perfect Location close to everything

The hotel is in a perfect location in the middle of Swansea close to many attractions and activities including a stunning beach, retail shops, coffee shops and restaurants.

The Staff is Amazing

All staff members at the front desk, in the restaurant and around the grounds are extremely friendly and accommodating. Dealing with members of the staff at this hotel is a pleasant experience and is one of the best things about staying there.

Negative Reviews

The Dragon Hotel is Very Noisy

The guest rooms are not soundproof which makes it very noisy at all hours of the night, particularly on weekends when crowds of young people arrive at the hotel to party. Some guests have reported that on some nights, there are people yelling, swearing and fighting until the sun comes up.

Breakfast is a Confusing Affair

The service at breakfast is rushed and confusing. Staff members don’t seem to keep track of people coming and going and this results in long waits to get a table and to be served. Some guests have said the food is bland and others have said they received the wrong order.

Guest Rooms are in Need of Care

Some guests have reported issues with guest rooms such as leaky shower pipes, ripped duvet covers and stained carpets and curtains. There were also reports of mould in the bathrooms and a damp odour.
