This is a great place to stay with really clean and well presented rooms but it's not without its drawbacks. It's a great pub downstairs but not so great when you're above it trying to sleep! Noise wasn't outrageous but some people might not be able to handle it. Also there is no food in the pub so you'll have... More

Rooms are excellent would rate a 5 but noise from pub was very loud and went on into early hours. This place is confused in whether to be hotel or local pub. Ordered breakfast with booking but no record of this wasn't offered after. No one around this am when we left

This is a pub hotel complete with colourful language in the bar! The bedrooms are a surprise and far above its weight. Very nice all round. The only down side is that you have to go out for food and Breakfast is cold but delivered to your door. All the staff were friendly and helpful and I would stay there... More

From the outside it looks just like a little pub as does the first bit on entering with its pool table and dukebox. but the friendliest most accomodating people ever. the pub has a lovely little fire to sit around, they handed out homemade mince...

My partner and I stayed here for one evening. The fact that the room is above a busy pub was a bit concerning at first but I needn't have worried. We actually spent the first few hours in the bar watchibg rugby. Great atmosphere, good service and a warm welcome. Good to see a pool table and jukebox too! When... More

When you pull up outside this hotel, it doesn't look the best. But believe me, you need to enter for a wonderful experience. The outside of the hotel looks like a very old fashioned local pub. The bar in the entrance doesn't look much better really. Quiet local pub with a few tables and chairs. The girl behind the bar... More

My partner and I stayed here on our 1st night road trip around North Wales! On arrival we were shown up to our lovely clean and contempory style room, we then went down to the bar for a couple of alcoholic beverages before thinking about going out into the main town for our dinner. Whilst we enjoyed our drinks a... More

I recently experienced the worst customer service I have ever had from the Castle Hotel. I had booked the hotel for myself, my husband and our 1 year old. I assumed this would come with a cot, but added the request for a cot on the booking comments section as well. However, on the day of our reservation the hotel... More

We stopped here after taking my partners son back to university. The rooms are lovely but I have to agree with the other reviews on the level of noise from the pub underneath. You can't have your windows open as you wouldn't get any sleep. We will be visiting Aberystwyth again but I would not stop here. Lovely rooms as... More
