Boutique Luxury at Swansea Waterfront

The Morgans Hotel in the waterfront center of Swansea began life as a government office building housing the Swansea Harbour Trust. Originally built in 1903 in a nouveau Baroque style designed by architect Edwin Seward, visually distinctive with its elaborate façade of red brick clad in white stone trim, topped by an Italianate bell tower. Inside the halls features stained glass and murals depicting maritime themes. Located next to the Dylan Thomas Center and a short stroll from the revitalised Swansea Harbor, the Morgans Hotel brings a note of elegance to the former maritime neighborhood.

The Morgans Hotel a luxurious boutique accomodation with 42 rooms, 20 in the main building and another 22 in the adjacent restored Regency building annex. Sometimes given the rating of 5-star hotel by the tourism board, the Morgans is more in line with a international 4 star hotel, but what’s a star between friends. The room designs in the historic building are decidedly and unapologetically modern, for a hotel which started life as offices, with beds of crisp white linen and Eqyptian cotton, furnishings of silks and suede, plasma tvs and "daring" double showers. The main building rooms start at £125 up to £250. The townhouse rooms are little less posh, but a bargain starting at £65, though requiring the crossing of a street from the reception.

The Morgans Bar is a popular city nightlife spot, the place to be seen, its soft sofas filling up with a mix of locals in lively conversation from fairly early to late. The Champagne Bar is a bit quieter and the outdoor patio can be a pleasant alternative in good weather. The bar offers special wine selections and a bar lunch and dinner food menu. The Morgans Restaurant upstairs on the first floor in the former grand boardroom serves a contemporary European menu under the high arched ceilings, also the location for breakfast. For a little more intimate dining, the Atrium offers space, under a glass roof. Morgans Hotel. The hotel offers holiday packages as well wedding services.
