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

This is the first time I have ever written a review but felt strongly enough to do so. I want to try and be fair here. Rooms look lovely, breakfast delivered to your room was nice too. However, the reviewer who said there is a dodgy looking pub underneath was not kidding. Slashed or ripped seats and everything. What we... More

Stayed here for one night on second floor room excellent double glazing helps with noise mentioned by others, but makes room very hot Continental breakfast ok ; Staff friendly and helpful perhaps aircon would be the answer shame because the heat in rooms seems the main issue

Room very good, but noisy and too hot !! Expected a better view too ! We booked a room at very short notice, to take advantage of the good weather. The reviews I saw looked very good, as did the advertisement on Laterooms. I did however notice the concerns about noise... The advertisement talks of the hotel being yards from... More

Had reckoned that this was the smartest hotel in town (going mostly by pictures), but was slightly alarmed on arrival to see what looked from the outside, like a bit of a rough pub. However, got a really friendly welcome at the bar and was shown to my room - which for a small hotel, was very well finished indeed.... More

A well situated hotel, close to the beach and within easy walking distance to the town center. The room was large and very comfortable. A great bar downstairs! Friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

I have stayed at The Castle a couple of times recently while working in Aberystwyth and am impressed by the quality of the rooms and the friendliness of the staff. Breakfast is brought to your room at a time to suit you. Parking is on the surrounding streets so it can be tricky to find a space during busy periods.

Stayed for 1 night with my husband. We were surprised by the recently renovated rooms that we were offered. The room was spotless. We were there on a very quiet night in the pub downstairs, and stayed on the top floor. We were told that the hotel did not offer meals, so we were not expecting breakfast. The only thing... More

I wasn't actually expecting much from the Castle. However, I was really shocked! The rooms are tasteful and spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable and I had everything needed for a good stay. Breakfast to the room was fine for me and if you do want something warm there are plenty of cafés around. The staff were all very helpful... More
