Great location and our room had a super sea view. There was a log fire and the bar was warm and cosy. But what's with the dogs!? There were three at the breakfast table, barking and sniffing in the bin. Very strange. (And these weren't dogs for the disabled)

Another great stay at the Glen with two dogs and all of us made as welcome as usual. Room 12 is huge with fantastic seafront views through the massive windows. Bit of noise from student revelry outside but a good trade off for the views! Breakfast okay but veggie sos still horrid so a plea for Quorn/Linda McCartney sausage for... More

Good location toward the end of the Victorian terrace promenade. Somewhat faded, as many old seaside properties are, but our room seemed to have been recently refurbished & was clean if basic. Sea view was nice - we asked for a higher floor to reduce street noise - be aware there is no lift in the hotel. We had an... More

Clean, warm, friendly, with all the little comforts carefully provided. Recommended. Right on the prom, what more could you want? I have stayed in some awful dumps in Aber and I stress the Glengower is the other end of the scale.

very clean comfortable hotel with very friendly staff and good food and ales. Would definitely recommend. Will certainly come back to the Glengower Hotel in Aberystwyth in Ceridigion. A great place to stay

Two happy nights at the Glengower. Lovely views from the seafront room in a "pub with rooms." The staff are really friendly, helpful and efficient. Dogs are extra welcome, with treats freely available. The pub itself is friendly and well equipped. Whilst we didn't eat there in the evening this time round, the menu and the food we saw looks...

Room 32 on the third floor recently refurbished and very comfortable. Three nights and we ate in one night, good food great ales and excellent friendly service. Good value for money accommodation with stunning views especially with the weather doing every different thing it could.

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Glengower for August bank holiday and we weren't at all disappointed. I'd probably agree with some other reviewers that it feels more like a pub with rooms than a hotel, but given it's an independent seafront hotel that's exactly what we expected. The location is ideal and the hotel is one of the... More

So the the hotel is a small hotel and over a gastro pub. It's located well for the view and the town centre (10 - 15 minute walk). There were three menu choices for veggies for an evening meal. And surprisingly the breakfast also had a very good veggie option. The staff are very nice, efficient and quick to serve.... More

I agree with some reviewers it could do with some cosmetic work doing. Our room was beautiful with a seaview. Clean but had a strange smell (maybe the sea). The bar area was a little worn but fairly comfortable. We had our evening meal there which was nice apart from the fish and chips!!!! The batter was soggy and the... More
