We stayed one night at the Glengower last week in a sea view room on the 2nd floor. Our first impressions upon arriving in our room were 1) that's a lot of stairs to navigate with luggage and 2) the room could use some cosmetic work. That said, it was clean and comfortable, and the view was fab! We spent... More

We stayed in a family room on the first floor overlooking the beach for one night. My 13 tear old son who never likes going anywhere declared that he wanted to stay a week as he loved it! We are well travelled and this is a first! The room was lovely with a view to die for, with very welcome... More

Aberystwyth is a lovely place right on the west coast of Wales, a really quaint Welsh town with a surprising town centre with lots of variety in both food and shopping. The hotel is one of many that has been built into the old terrace buildings lining the promenade. Glen grower comprises two such buildings adjacent to one another. There... More

The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but nothing fancy. Only problem is without an elevator, it's a little trek up the stairs (however, the curving staircase is beautiful). Sea view room was lovely! The windows opened...fresh air and the sound of the surf...what more could you want in a seaside hotel? The bathroom shower was a little tricky to use... More

We came to Aberystwyth for a break from 82 days of travel and pretty much found it looking out over the Irish Sea from our third floor room. Pity about the lack of a lift, but that's pretty much par for the course in these hotels converted out of old houses, often two joined together as is the case here.... More

What a lovely Hotel, staff very pleasant and helpful. Food very good and also very clean and tidy. We also left something at the hotel and it was posted back to us. Lovely to see honesty in these days Thanks to all and especially Brett who was so kind and helpful with all. Hope we get a chance to return.++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++... More

We stayed 1 Friday night and on arrival found a parking space no problem. The front terrace was really busy with guests and locals having a drink and enjoying the seafront views. Checked in no problem and were directed to our lovely, sea view room - bit of a trek to the 3rd floor with your bags up the stairs... More

Myself and my husband stayed here on a weeknight during a tour of west Wales. I imagine it gets much busier at the weekend as it had a large bar area. Easy to find and car parking free during 6pm-8am. (Outside of this you get four hours) We were upgraded as there were sea view rooms available and our room... More

Stayed here for one night with my husband and 6 month old baby. The only good thing was the bedroom & bathroom were both clean, but as for the rest of the hotel, it's pretty dirty. Toilets for the bar area were very unclean, bar area had rips in all sofas, and were pretty dirty too. No lift, no disabled... More
