A seafront hotel with excellent views of the bay that is totally dog friendly. Their sausage breakfasts were well appreciated. Staff extremely capable and so friendly. Pub grub is plentiful and reasonably priced. Eclectic mix of customers creating a brilliant atmosphere. If you want a good hotel that attracts the locals and is dog friendly to boot, then this is...

What an excellent hotel. I did pay £60 for a sea view room and it was a bargain. The room was enormous with three windows facing Cardigan Bay. Opening one window wide brought a lovely sea breeze (actually nearer a gale) into the room. The bathroom was modern and as large as most hotel bedrooms I have stayed in. Great... More

The hotel management is very nice and they are trying hard to spruce up the hotel. My room was recently painted and the bathroom clean. However, the rest of the establishment, including the bedroom floor, has multiple layers of decade's old dirt on it. Simply disgusting.

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.
