A very friendly welcome and a beautiful room with superb ensuite. Fantastic location - just a stone's throw from seafront and short stroll to town. Wouldn't hesitate in re-booking next time I visit Aber.

Gorgeous clean/ large and modern rooms. Just off the promenade. A stone's throw away from the castle and the town centre. Staff very friendly, and extremely helpful. Above a student type bar with a brill juke box. It does get slightly noisy, but that's expected. And I joined in with the noise making on Friday night haha xXxXx

The staff are very nice and friendly, helping to make you feel welcome. The room is nice with a very large bed and good bathroom facilities. The hotel is in a good location, very close to the beach and local amenities. We had breakfast one morning, which was nice and they deliver it to your room at a time requested... More

We visit Aberystwyth when we can and will from now on stay at this hotel.The room was of a very superior standard being large, spotlessly clean and with a marvellously comfy bed. Every comfort! The only issue (noted by other reviewers too) is the noise from the pub's customers as they leave at approx 3am! The pub is not the... More

I can see why some people would be concerned about the noise. But we were on the 2nd floor and the room was beautiful. Recently refurbished, it was clean and spacious with good quality facilities. We did hear some people chatting but to be fair it was not that loud and did not disturb us. Would definitely stay there again.

Well decorated and spacious room with good facilities. The only drawback was whatever was still going on in the bar until after 3am! Not so much noisy, but in the background. The tv was about 8 foot up on the wall, making the colour a bit dodgy, and the signal kept dropping out on some channels. That said, we'd go... More

Beautifully newly refurbished bedrooms above a pub. I would not classify this as a hotel as I would have expected somewhere to have had breakfast. We were pleased that we did not pay to have breakfast in our room as we found an excellent restaurant to have a full English breakfast in the town cheaper than the price of the... More

My daughter & I stayed as part of our Welsh road trip. The staff were really friendly and lovely to chat to. The room was a delight - comfortable, spacious, well appointed plus lovely views of the sea. The parking was easy with the south beach 2 mins away & town an easy stroll away. Highly recommended.
