This is not our first stay at this welcoming hotel situated on the seafront of Aberystwyth. Having booked in we again enjoyed a well presented meal whilst we relaxed at the outside seating area in front of the hotel. Our double seafront room was clean offering en-suite bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities boasting great views. Having already reviewed this hotel... More

We stayed at Glengower for one night in last august(2014). We Stayed well, the room was big and everything worked well but wi-fi was very powerless. The hotel is old fashioned with a couple of dirty or broken windows. Glengower doesn't have a lift. The hotel has a beautiful view of Aberystwyth's promenade and seaside Full English breakfast was excellent... More

Aberystwyth is a large holiday and university town and as such its always a surprise that there aren't more proper hotels. Most of the places to stay are B&Bs in big old Victorian seafront houses. The Glengower is one of the larger ones and as such has better facilities including a nice bar and dining area. It's right on the... More

The rooms are very basic and could do with a facelift. The shower in our room was temperamental either very hot or very cold.The public area really could do... More

We stayed at the Glengower Hotel for one night in late July. It is situated on the main promenade in Aberystwyth and has a small sun terrace at the front overlooking the beach. The room we were in had lovely views over the bay, was clean and tidy and reasonably well equipped (perhaps a little bit dated but the views... More
