We stayed at 'The Glen' for one night during a recent trip to Aberystwyth. Check in was quick, friendly and no fuss- was made to feel welcome. Our room,number 23 (highly recommend) was very spacious, good bed with clean towels and fresh sheets. The high light of the room was the large window - which opens upwards where we could... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of days whilst visiting friends in the area. The hotel is an old victorian building that has been very tastfully decorated keeping alot of the original features that add to the homely feel. The rooms were spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and nice linen, bathroom was also spotless. We had a... More

We had a small room on the top floor ( and were warned in advance there were no lifts)The view was great and the room was fresh with... More

We turned up (after telling them we would would be late) just before 11 - and not sure what would have happened if we'd got delayed further. Friendly staff and the room was clean - unfortunately the room could have done with a fan as having the window open meant we were woken by seagulls at 3am onwards. Breakfast was... More

Just the one night stay, but very friendly reception, well stocked bar with real ales, good breakfast, a good stay. Easy to book on line. Good value for money and of course being on the sea front great views of Cardigan Bay and convenient for Aber town.

We stayed here in July 2015. Staff were very friendly , food was good. Sadly the only thing was our room, although clean and comfortable it was very hot ! Think we were above the kitchen. If we go back to this part of Wales would definately stay again but request a sea view room !!

The Hotel is located on the main street of Aberystwith, just by the sea. The stuff is friendly. Although the general conditions of the Hotel are OK, it needs a little bit of refreshment. Overall I was satisfied with the quality/price ratio.

I have difficulty with this hotel. As pub - ie bar - and food - it is easily a 3 maybe a 4 - but as a hotel - it is barely a 2. It is an old hotel being restored. Very steep steps - no lift - and you will need help with larger bags. A simple "dumb waiter"... More
