Don't be fooled by the nice balcony in the sun, we went for lunch early on a Sunday afternoon. The drinks are very expensive and the food was awful. Firstly half the items on the menu were unavailable and it was only 13:30. Secondly it took nearly an hour for us to get our food, which was nothing special but... More

I visited Aberystwyth with my husband and son for a University Open Day. When we pulled up outside the hotel my heart sank, how wrong was I! We received a lovely welcome and the room was lovely with a fantastic sea view. Don't get me wrong, the building is very tired but this all seems to add to the charm.... More

After deciding that I was going to visit Aberystwyth University, I decided to book into the Glengower Hotel as it was on the seafront and was very well priced. With my train arriving in a bit before the check in time, I phoned the hotel in advance and they let me check into my room early. On arrival to the... More

Stayed here on the seafront or Aberystwyth and have no complaints at all. The hotel has an old fashioned charm, the rooms are old but clean, bright, airy and spacious. We chose to eat here in the evening which was very enjoyable. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was very good and plentiful. Lots to do in the area,... More

We stayed a couple of nights here, I never have high expectations when visiting any hotel, this is an old building but is very clean, bathroom is a little dated but everything worked fine, shower was hot but a little low on pressure, the second floor sea view was amazing and luckily we had a very windy night one of...

We arrived to a friendly welcome, the room was fine but unfortunately the bathroom did have a funny smell and the shower wouldn't work the next morning. The breakfast was excellent, bed comfortable, close to local places, overall a really nice stay. We asked for a Sea view room and were on the third floor.

The sea view room has a wonderful look out towards the beach. The standard rooms are also nice as there is lots of room and beds is comfortable to sleep in. All the staff are very helpful and polite. The hotel is also a short distant walk to all the shops and restaurants. The hotel is also close to the... More

Our second time at the glengower, won't be the last. Spacious rooms, nice pub, friendly service, great breakfast all in a lovely location at a brilliant price- what's not to like! Can't wait to come back- hopefully in better weather but the room was so cosy.

The hotel is in a very good location! It is close to the main shopping area and is right on the promenade. The sea-view is one of the best and there is nothing like the sound of the sea! It is only a quick walk to all the restaurants, some of which are wonderful! Even the standard room is perfectly... More

Excellent value, spacious, comfortable and clean room (without a sea view ;-( however, we paid £130 for 2 nights for a twin room, so incredible deal). Bathroom was very cold, but also didn't have any shelves to put any toiletries and makeup. TIP - There is no hairdryer in the room, you have to request from reception. Friendly staff, lovely...
