Stayed in a top floor room. Views were not great but the location close to the seafront was brilliant. The rooms were decorated similar to a Premier Inn but with more luxurious extras such as robes and good towels/ sheets. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Aberystwyth either on holiday or business.

The hotel is situated in the student digs part of Aberystwyth, and over a pub, so although it is very clean and comfortable, the noise from outside at night can be atrocious. The pub below also has a late licence, so during term-time, the chances of getting unbroken sleep can be slim, which is a shame as it's two minutes,... More

Went to Aberystwyth to visit family recently and as we were staying at a b&b very close to the castle hotel we decided to call in for a drink. Big mistake. This pub had a bad atmosphere as soon as you go in., which makes to feel very unwelcome. It is not a clean place and very dingy in desperate... More

Booked for £80 per night room but partner paid extra £30 to upgrade to a sea view. Total joke as small round window in corner of room with sea view visible out of top left corner looking beyond building in front of window as per picture attached. Not a particularly nice hotel in fact it is rooms over a pretty... More

Comments on noise and late opening are spot on. But the place does seem to be in middle of large student area. In any case didn't massively bother us. Room was very good - large and comfortable. Only negative is cost - its not worth the price.

Amazing friendly staff who were polite and courteous at all times and they couldn't do or get anything quicker (even a phone charger because I left mine).The room was new and beautifully clean with a comfortable double bed and the best shower I have ever had. Will definitely be booking again when I'm next in Aberystwyth.

Room was fine, could do with replacing the carpet but beds comfortable and good shower, tea making facilities an added bonus Went out for breakfast, no dining room, so continental breakfast would be served in room

It is a back street pub. Having said that, lovely room, beautiful en-suite, great staff. BUT - incredibly noisy and rowdy. You cannot hear the pub from the room when the pub door is shut, but the customers don't seem to care that it is late at night when they are outside the pub. If you don't mind keeping awake... More

Overpriced. Noisy, rowdy pub revellers late into the night. Breakfast in the room because it is a pub with no facilities so put up with a croissant on a tray. Not a hotel, a rip off at these prices and you won't get any sleep.
