This isn't a 4 or 5 star hotel, is not advertised a such, and shouldn't be expected - it is what it is ! This is a return visit for me and I had booked 5 rooms for 2 nights for our party. Upon arrival we were met by the owner (Karen) who, although extremely busy on this particular lunchtime,... More

I stayed at this hotel, with my partner, back in July. We were both graduating from Aberystwyth University, and after not finding any accommodation within a closer radius to the university, we chose the George Borrow, and I am very glad we couldn't find a hotel closer. When we arrived, we were met with a lovely woman who was perfectly... More

We stopped over for a night after a stormy walk up the local mountains. Very happy with the place. Comfortable room, cosy bar and the food is home cooked and good value. View from the restaurant is really nice, looking over the hills. If the sun is out then it rises over one of them. Very pleasant owners too.

We stayed here for a weekend as the hotels in town were fully booked, the location is great with an amazing view from the garden and the rooms on the south side. It is located about 30 min from Aberystwyth so it is convenient if you want to be close to town but not in the centre. The hotel is... More

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend . It was a last minute booking and many of the other hotels were fully booked. The owner was welcoming and because we had paid for a room with a view she gave us two complementary bottles of wine for the nights we had booked. All the rooms being fully booked and... More

We were staying in the area and stopped in for a meal, I would recommend the the rump steaks they were superb, they were very accommodating when I requested salad instead of chips. The quality of the food was excellent and the service was quick friendly and efficient. We were so impressed we returned the following evening, my husband had... More

Carvery of the best order, although on this occasion the beef was a little rare,but most Chefs deliver it this way.A nice meal in a dated but delightful atmosphere.Would be a good start to a holiday in West Wales.

We stopped for the night on our way North. Hotel in a lovely location with a stunning view to the back. For the price the food and accommodation were fine and breakfast great. A very friendly welcome. I would recommend it. It's quite basic but all you need for a good night's rest.
