2015  
November We came, we stayed and we got merry.
September Great time. Great facility. Fabulous walking. Great meal at the Bay Bistro.
  Fab. See you next year!
  Such a wonderful time had with friends and our horses. The bunkhouse is comfortable, clean and well equipped. A shelf for top bunks would be nice! [Noted.] Great weather. Stunning scenery. I will be back! xxx
  My first time here. Wow - fabulous! Great time here and great place to stay, WiFi fab. Horse riding on the beach (Magical!!!) Weather cracking! x
  This is our third year here and as always it is heaven on earth. Thanks Jo for installing WiFi, phone signal is so dire its great to be able to contact our loved ones via email. See you same time next year.
  Brilliant stay once again! Brought the horses. WiFi is much better!!! xx
August We had really nice days! And it was so nice you picked us up from the beer shop! Thank you very much!
July What an incredible place!! Beautiful, second time staying here, we might make it a yearly thing. Great surf and amazing weather. Beautiful Bunkhouse - clean and great facilities :) :) :)
  A reunion of Swansea University undergraduate friends from 40 years ago. We have had a wonderful time and everyone has agreed that the Bunkhouse has been a brilliant location. Weather has been kind to us - we've enjoyed walks, taking in the views, refreshing our student memories, eating outside at the Worm's Head Hotel, eating outside here with the barbeque, mutually updating eachother on the intervening years, and thinking we'd like to do this again!
June Only downside - want to stay longer! Lots of fun on the beach, even in the rain. Please don't make me go back to work...
May A lovely place to stay! A little hotel just for ourselves. :) Everything was fine! Thanks!
April As always, we have enjoyed our stay at the bunkhouse. A new member of our group couldn't believe how comfortable and beautifully clean the Bunkhouse is as she said she'd expected to be "roughing it" for the weekend. Thank you so much for your hard work and efficiency.
February We were all pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness, modernness and spaciousness of the bunkhouse. Brilliant views. Thanks. :-) (Mountaineering Instructor Training Group)

2014  
October The bunkhouse is lovely and clean and rooms warm and comfortable. The only area which could be improved is the drying room outside. [Noted, thanks.] Overall we were very happy with the bunkhouse which is much better than many others we have stayed in. It's location is fantastic. We particularly enjoyed the Worm's Head walk and Rhossili Bay beach. Hope to see you again. (Walking Group)
  Thank you for a lovely stay. The bunkhouse is excellent - clean; comfortable and warm - very important when you are out all day! Blessed with dry weather. Stunning beaches. The walk across to the Worm is strenuous to Devil's Bridge but fantastic scrambling. Rhossili beach is beautiful. Recommend King Arthur pub in Reynoldston. (Walking Group)
September Brilliant facilities. WiFi booster would be great. Thank you for a lovely stay.
  Comfortable, good facilities and affordable! Perfect for a lovely getaway.
  Stayed here this time last year. As always, we love it (we bring our horses). Thank you so much Jo, as ever we loved the experience! See you next year!
  Fantastic!! 2 days and you healed my pain. Thank you!!
August Great weekend - lovely walks and body boarding. Wonderful BBQ with good company - will come again. Thanks Bunkhouse People.
  Really fun weekend! The 3 hopping sheep were a nice little contribution. The bunkhouse is lovely, but the WiFi was a tad temperamental. Oh well. Thank you.
  It was a very nice weekend. Thank you.
  Lovely place and well set out, organised. Even had a go at surfing! Hope to be back. Thank you.
  So grateful not to be in a tent! Great place - just what we needed. Thank you.
July Fantastic location and amazingly hot weather. We sat outside till midnight watching the stars. My son loves it here and we shall certainly return.
  We celebrated a birthday party here 7 years ago and it's as amazing now as it was then. Fantastic weekend, great weather and bunkhouse was perfect place for all of us to stay. Can't speak highly enough.
  Fantastic venue for our 18th and 21st party, had an absolutely great time. Thank you.
  Beautiful, Hot, Surf!!
June Hot sunshine, great surfing, delicious BBQ. We came here 2 years ago and had a fantastic time. Repeated but with sunshine. Fantastic place, you obviously look after it well. Fully equipped and a top weekend. Thank you.
  We have had a lovely time in this bunkhouse. It's a nice place in beautiful area. We've had an amazing time - thank you very much.
May Had a luvley time, thank yooou.
April We had a great time, as always. Thanks for your excellent service. See you next year, hopefully. (Walking group)
  Really enjoyed our stay :-) Fantasic location, caters for everything. Defo recommend!
  It's so beautiful. Great place to stay; very communal + social. Great location near the beach. :-)
  Lovely. A1 stay and A1 Bunkhouse. Brilliant. Fantastic. Family all enjoyed. Thank you.
March An excellent facility. Nice and clean and warm. Great kitchen and fantastic views, but could not get a WiFi signal or use mobile phones. Had the most amazing walks and would definitely return. Thank you, Jo. Hope to see you again soon.
  We went to Worm's Head, it was very(!) nice! The bunkhouse is great with a well-equipped kitchen (lack of sharp knives) [a new set of sharp knives has been provided], intriguing games, annoying security cards :-), lots of space for us! We will come back and bring some pepper. Very recommendable! (Germany)

2013  
December We all have had a Great Time this weekend. The hostel is a fab place for a Family Gathering. We will be back. Thank you x
November Such nice accommodation. We really enjoyed it here. Such amazing nature and lots of sheep. Cheers. (Australia and Singapore)
  We enjoyed our stay a lot. Views were beautiful. Thanks a lot! (Czech Republic)
October A fantastic place to spend half-term - Thank you.
September Clean, convenient, good place. Lovely, lovely place. Thank you.
  Thank you very much for the lovely stay. We have all really enjoyed ourselves. Hope to visit again. Thank you again.
  Lovely bunkhouse. Clean, cheap and friendly. WiFi password should be simpler and available without needing to request it. All in all a great stay.
  The most beautiful place. We brought our horses and stabled them at 'Pitton Stables' while we stayed here. Felt completely at home and fallen in love with the area. Clean bunkhouse, so welcoming. The only thing we have to request is WiFi throughout, rather than just in the foyer as phone signal is limited. The Highland cows don't appear to appreciate being sat on! Much love and thank you for the fab time. I'll be coming back soon. XOX
  Great venue for a group holiday. Lucky to see some sunshine after forecast predicted biblical flooding. Views from garden were beautiful for outdoor meals. Looking forward to coming back in the future.
August Another wonderful Bank Holiday weekend. Great walks, worth all of the steps to the beach. Great facilities in the kitchen. Brilliant value. Jo is a very professional tour guide! We recommend the chips at Eddy's Restaurant in Llangennith!!
  What a brilliant holiday! We had such a brilliant time! Fab place, fab weather, fab friends!! XXX (Great mushrooms - go find some - field nearby!!)
  First holiday in this country - usually do all inclusive abroad!! We have had an amazing time - thank you! Bunks have been tricky at times, especially after a gin or two!! Absolutely love the kitchen - everything we need. We think good value for money and will definitely come back.
  The Bunkhouse has worked its magic again. I love the fact that my children feel at home hereand we seem to be really lucky to have had the place to ourselves this time. Gower has been at its loveliest and being able to come back here in the evening has made it even more special. XX
I have had a wonderful time here! I would not have changed a thing while I have been here! I congratulate the bunkhouse! (young guest)
I have had a lovely time at the bunk house. Never want to leave. I like how you use key cards. (young guest)
  Despite the Welsh downpours we all had a great time and enjoyed our stay. Surfing at Rhossili, walking on the Worm and drinking into the small hours... I enjoyed my birthday!
July Stayed here during the heatwave and enjoyed the lovely views, sea, beaches and this bunkhouse. What a gorgeous spot, very comfortable, clean, friendly. Will certainly visit again. Thank you Jo and Zak.
April My children love it here!... "I love the bunk so much. Great fun and laughter - feels like home. We will come back soon." and "I am having fun except for the walk this morning. I love the bunk."
  I have stayed everywhere in Gower, from camp sites to hotels and my Great-Aunt's home, and in all my 70 years no place has been more good value, well run and friendly than this. Congratulations to the team who run the Bunkhouse!
  We love it here. My son is 6 and thinks this place is great! My mother and I have been coming to Gower for years and the Bunkhouse makes it special all over again.
March Thanks for a great stay, and the biscuits! Wonderful location on the coast. I recommend the King Arthur and the Britannia Inn to future visitors for good pub food. Have a great 2013!
February We have had a fantastic time. Thankyou. Most perfect weather.
  Great set up here - clean, comfortable and spectacular location. We'll be back!

2012

August Great place, needs a TV to watch Jeff Stelling on a Sat afternoon!!!
  I love the beds, nice views, lovely beaches - lovely views to wake up to.

July Great location, great weather, lovely walks, good beaches, great body boarding, all round a great time. Thank you. Bunkhouse is really good - clean, well-equipped, great terrace - excellent place to stay.
  Cool Hall and good beach. Thank you!!!
  Lovely holiday house. I love the stage! (young guest from Switzerland)
  Some 80 adults and 15 children from various countries such as Wales, England, France, Belgium, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Spain... to celebrate the wonderful wedding. We are glad that we could all come to this great and wonderful nature and to this very sympathetic house. Thank you!
  Another excellent stay!
  Once again we had a brilliant stay at the bunkhouse. The weather was rather... "environmentally friendly", but we had lots of fun anyway! The facilities are excellent.
June What a fantastic place, when we booked after coming to Rhossili in the heat of March we thought BBQs on the beach, sunbathing, swimming and celebrating midsummer in summer clothes. Instead - lashing rain, gales, bracing walks, surfing in full wetsuits - a fabulous weekend - will return in March for sunshine!
  Fab time, excellent place to stay and chill out. Sun, rain, wind, pub, good food, what more could you want!. Oh yes! Fantastic scenery and the best beach in the World!
April This is the most amazing hotel I've ever stayed at. Very nice view. Be back soon!
  Nice view of the sea, nice comfy beds, Terrace is nice place to talk as well as the lounge. Good kitchen to prepare cooked breakfast. New local adventure centre. Pub's got good signal. Sheep were really noisy! Tip: Need TV - Rugby Players get bored. Overall a good place to stay for the weekend.
March Great weather, loads of animals. Really good beaches - the Worm's Head was great. Excellent place to sleep! You have a great bunkhouse and your rooms were so cosy! Hope to see you next year. Amazing views. Shame that the wind was so strong and the sea cold, but everything else superb! Lovely bunkhouse, amazing adventure to Worm's Head. Shame it couldn't last longer.
February Kitchen was great for washing, cooking and serving food! Lounge was great for us and for Charades and Pictionary! (young guest)
January Excellent. Lovely views and village. Accommodation really good, and well thought out!

2011

We will definitely be visiting again and telling people about the fabulous time spent here. See you next year.
  Superb, Spotless, Great Location.
  A magnificent bunkhouse - incredibly well equipped and spacious. Fantastic location on Gower.
  Great Bunkhouse, very clean and enjoyable stay. Although I was slightly perturbed when I had to chase the chickens off the patio!
  This bunkhouse is fantastic! The rooms were clean and furnished in amodern way. The kitchen facilities were a good size. The only negative was that the patio smelled distinctly of fish.
August Lovely bunkhouse, very spacious! Utterly astonished at the grass quality.
  Fourth annual get-together. Beautiful weather - stunning views on the walks. All to return next year.
  We had a lovely time!
July Very welcoming bunkhouse and comfy beds. Views were absolutely sensational. Rocky road to stunning views and beautiful sunset. Hostel is lovely and fab place to stay. We will spread the word! Thanks v much!
  I love Rhossili beach and especially swimming. It is a wonderful place, the best beach in the UK!
  Fantastic time, lovely accommodation and gorgeous weather. Fantastic views of Rhossili and amazing scenery. A lovely climb down and up from Fall Bay, very tiring! Overall it's perfect for a relaxing time for walks and enjoying the coastal scenery. Thank you for a fantastic stay at the Bunkhouse.
  Great place to stay, perfect for what we wanted and the weather was great too. The place was really clean and tidy, and the rooms were nice too - although the neighbour's farm animals were very noisy at night!! Would definitely come back.
  Ideally suited for us! Safe, secure, clean and comfortable. Kitchen was good size and well equipped for practising life skills. Good toilet and showering facilities. Pupils enjoyed the bunkhouse rooms. Highly recommended. Jo was very friendly and helpful - thank you.
  We all had an amazing time in this gorgeous part of the country. Took full advantage of the facilities and had an enjoyable time. Loved the view from the patio and very peaceful, although the cockerel [farm next door] is noisy!
  This place is amazing. Thank you.
  Had a great 60th Party here at the bunkhouse. Great venue for the little ones + big ones! The Bistro provided the food + thanks to Tim for hosting the games. The Bunkhouse is brilliant!

  Awesome place! Brilliant facilities. :-)
  Great place, great facilities. Beach was great, very close and just vast! Great place to fly a kite, but next year I shall try to remember to bring my mountain board.
  I had an excellent time! The weather was great and the best part was when we almost fell off the cliff!
January Excellent venue for a big group to have fun! A fab start to 2011.

50th Birthday celebration. Fabulous bunkhouse - good layout, very clean. Lovely to sit outside - sunny location all day. Good furniture and equipment. Noisy cockerel! Great weather, fantastic company, fab location, fun activities - we all want to come back here.
We all came as a family and enjoyed it all. We had an amazing time here! Thankyou Rhossili! This was the best time ever - thank you very much.
What a lovely and unexpectedly well thought out complex. Enjoyed my stay, felt comfortable and privileged - loved the kitchen facilities. But more importantly felt connected to the local community. Very impressed with the number of functions and people using the Hall next door! What a lovely, graceful place this is - even enjoyed meeting the chickens!
We had a fantastic time. What a great place! Clean, modern, friendly people, with a great kitchen and fantastic views from the patio. Lots of great walks right from the door (favourite one was down to Fall Bay) Very peaceful (apart from the cockerel and sheepdogs!). Only sorry we had to miss the local Mouse Race. So all the best for keeping the Bunkhouse and Village Hall thriving and successful.
July Boys enjoyed local wildlife on the [golf] course and at bunkhouse!!! Good start to the tour. Rhossili Bay absolutely gorgeous.
Friday - Great kitchen facilities, beautiful terrace, amazing views - shame about the weather. Saturday - Beautiful weather and stunning beaches!

Yet another super weekend with members of Walk and Talk. This time - fabulous weather (2 years ago was wet and windy), BBQ each evening.

It's been great staying here - we've had the whole place to ourselves and it's been very relaxing. Great bunkhouse - everything so new and clean and beautiful surroundings. Pity about the weather, some of the time, but we still managed to see a lot of Gower. we will definiteley recommend the place to others.
