Staying at the Gower Manor is like staying in a museum! It's unique. Every day I discovered new details.
Every part of the property is filled with collectibles and antiques. It's quite the trip to walk around it and take in souvenirs of royal occasions, gramophone records, old soda bottles... There was even a musket above my bed!
If you haven't stayed in a REAL bed and breakfast for a while, then this is truly a trip down memory lane to a time when all seaside hotels were like this. I'm from England and it is just a reminder of how life used to be.
Bill, your host, is a charming man who makes time to help with any questions or concerns. He took time out of his day to help me find a walk I was having trouble locating, and recommended places to eat.
My bed was more comfortable than I'd expected it to be; the room was very clean and full of restored furniture as well as memorabilia. There were glasses and plates in the cupboard. Breakfast is basic, but plentiful, with flexible times rather than the old standard of "sleep in and tough luck", and there is space in the kitchen fridge for guests to store their own food.
This place won't be for everybody. It's an old house, so there is no air conditioning, though a fan was in my bedroom and helped to cool me down. Some will find the museum vibe overwhelming rather than charming. If you've spent a lot of time in modern hotels, then a communal bathroom takes some getting used to.
If you Embrace Gower Manor, it's unforgettable.
