Swansea Hotels

There are many UK cities which have incredible nightlife, great shopping and a vibrant and cosmopolitan urban culture. There are not many however which can also offer access to some of the best beaches in the country like Swansea can. The second city in Wales, after the capital Cardiff, Swansea offers a comprehensive array of opportunities for visitors whether they are looking for a short city break filled with culture and entertainment, a seaside holiday, or a dynamic place in which to do business and there are Swansea hotels ideal for all these purposes and more.

The city is situated in South Wales on the Gower Peninsula, much of which was the first area in the UK to be designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. Swansea Bay comprises 25 miles of stunning coastline and beaches which incorporates popular tourist sights such as the village of Mumbles, Vale of Neath and the waterfalls of Afan. A full range of water sports and beach related activities are available and there are many Swansea hotels which offer direct access to them.

As we move into the city, there is the Marina and Maritime Quarter which has a Leisure complex and Waterpark, filled with family oriented attractions and activities. Next to this are the oldest and newest museums in Wales, namely the Swansea Museum and National Waterfront Museum respectively. Then there is the Dylan Thomas Centre which celebrates the life and work of the city's most famous literary son and the SA1 Waterfront development which hosts stylish modern living and leisure spaces. Some of the most modern and stylish Swansea hotels are found here.

The modern hotels of the city will certainly have a contemporary aesthetic appeal in looks and design but they will also present guests with an array of facilities for leisure and business. Leisure options will be based around exceptional dining and lounge spaces, which in the latter case can be transformed in the evening to provide superb environments for cocktail parties and celebrations. There may also be features such as swimming pools and fitness suites, ideal for some stress-busting time in a busy executive world. Business facilities will be in the firm of areas given over to computers and office equipment and meeting spaces adaptable for different styles from boardroom to classroom to full conferencing facilities.

The larger Swansea hotels, whether traditional or modern will generally cater for business events and private functions such as weddings or other celebrations. Some will be convenient for the waterfront or coast and others will place guests right in the heart of the city and close to its boundless city centre attractions. With the biggest indoor market in Wales, this will almost certainly include shopping for many visitors while others will make the most of the ambience and services to be found in the many excellent bars, restaurants and clubs in the city. Wind Street is widely considered to be the social hub of the city centre during the day and well into the night.

A largely modern city centre, there are some notable historic buildings too, such as the Grand Theatre which has been hosting major performances in drama, opera, ballet and pantomime for over 100 years. The main theatre has seating for over 1000 people and there is a modern addition which offers a more intimate city centre theatre venue. The Dylan Thomas Theatre is another city venue and perhaps the most visually spectacular is Oystermouth Castle which forms a backdrop to open air Shakespeare productions. Visitor information on events and all the attractions of the city will be readily available to guests within Swansea hotels.
