We stayed here for two nights during a walking holiday in West Wales. Right on the seafront, yet with very little traffic going by, we greatly enjoyed the wonderful sea view that filled the whole window in our room. It was a large room with en suite bath and shower, comfortable twin beds, and armchairs in the bay window to... More

Aberystwyth is a lovely place to spend a break retaining character whilst providing a varied selection of pubs, restaurants & venues for visitors and residents alike. The Hotel has a great location overlooking the sea with close proximity to Constitutional Hill and the coastal footpath. Arriving on a Sunday afternoon in early May it was not that easy to find...

We went to this hotel for a weekend break,had a lovely en-suite double room overlooking the sea. All very clean but it's an old building so you can sometimes hear people in the rooms above. Breakfast was small but very nice.

We have recently returned from a short break in Wales, and had a lovely meal for 4 at the Glengower Hotel. We chose it because they do allow dogs in with you, so long as they are well behaved. Great service, good food and even a drinking bowl and biscuit for the dog.

Nobody told us the facade is under construction and the whole building is covered by scaffold when we booked the room with sea view. Have to say we were disappointed. Wifi connection is very bad, almost none in the room, and unstable even in reception area. When we mentioned this to the manager (Ian?), he replied it must be the... More

We are very sorry that you were disappointed with your recent stay at the Glengower. Unfortunately yes, the lovely sea view that we enjoy is currently interrupted by the scaffolding that is on the exterior of the building whilst the post storm damage is being rectified.
