I read the bad review below and laughed, some people are so grumpy. This is my perspective. We booked two nights last minute on booking.com. Julian called to confirm - what a nice chap. I told him we would be late and he suggested we had a late breakfast. (FYI: I went with my wife and another married couple, booked... More

This guest house is 5 minutes walk from the sea and town centre. Apart from its location it is a place with nothing to recommend. Our party of three were given the wrong address firstly! When we did arrive there was no one to meet and greet. There was an envelope sellotape do to the door with codes to enter... More

We stayed here over New Year for three nights with our family. We rented the whole place so it was self catering. The accomadation is in a fab location, two minutes walk from Aberystwyth town centre and two minutes walk from the beach front and castle. It was perfect for us. The house is clean and had everything to cater... More

Stayed overnight. Arrived mid afternoon, keys ready. Lovely house, quiet location 5 mins from Aberystwyth town centre. Location down country lane, nice and quiet. Room very nice. Clean, tidy, well presented. Downstairs nice living room and kitchen. Continental breakfast was fine. Downsides are shared bathroom. Wooden floors means it's quiet noisy. If someone up early, then difficult to sleep through... More

This was pretty bad. Essentially the proprietor is in the wrong job as he has no idea that the comfort of the client should rank ahead of his own preferences, at least to a reasonable degree. The worst was having to leave to face a gruelling business day without any breakfast due to his laziness. Thankfully the man had a... More

We were welcomed warmly,lovely breakfast, enjoyed the sauna. We had a family room which was adequate for our needs and we were able to come and go as we liked. A lounge which could be used like home. Hot drinks tray in room. Free wifi

If you are looking for a great value holiday venue, this is the place to go to. Julian, Kate, and the other staff were very kind, friendly, and accommodating throughout our stay. We stayed in the downstairs bedroom number 4. A lovely room which has fabulous views of the garden and the starry sky at night (When not cloudy!) The... More

Just back from our third stay at the Shelley guest house and as always we have had a wonderful stay. Nothing is too much trouble for Julian and his staff and we love this quirky friendly place. I personally was very glad to see the return of Julian,s wonderful full cooked breakfast which is always a delight. Although our Son... More

I think the best way to summarise this stay is in bullet points as I feel if I write in full sentences I may have to use expletives; - There is not proper parking for more than one car, you have to park down a narrow road if you miss the chance to park on what is a mud pit.... More

We are really sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our guest house. I really feel that in this particular case the guests personal tastes were the main reason why they failed to enjoy their stay. We always look at reviews very seriously and we would like to add that the vast majority of guests really enjoy their... More
