Having recently spent two nights at the Shelley Town House whilst visiting Aberystwyth University, I would have liked to spend time only saying really nice things about the stay because it is an interesting place. The staff at the accommodation were extremely helpful, polite and attentive even when the fire alarm was accidentally activated. The owner was understanding and cheerful... More

The Shelley Town Residence will not suit everybody, but I was very happy with my 2-night stay. This is a quirky place, a small terrace house with seven (?) bedrooms but only one bathroom (plus a second room with toilet and washbasin); with a great collection of books available to guests, but no television; with white walls and roughly sanded...

This is a good place to stay, if one is on a budget and not looking for much more than simple, friendly and reliable accommodation, it serves a purpose, provides a clean service and a relaxed vibe, offering somewhere to sleep, a place to store luggage and with the added bonus of an enjoyable continental breakfast, which I personally found...

This is a great place to stay the night when visiting short term. It's very central, handy for the beach, town and university, so convenient when moving in students or attending graduation. Rooms are simply furnished but comfortable; the supplies of freshly ground coffee, tea, mineral water, chocolates and toiletries are a lovely touch. The only disadvantage is the shared... More

My husband and I stayed here at short notice on our wedding night, as we were setting off early on a walking trip. As my husband had booked I was initially surprised by the small looking house we pulled up in front of, but he said it had been difficult to find somewhere that would take dogs and we had... More

Booking and confirmation prompt and professional. Charming town centre location, friendly staff and ambiance, well positioned in town centre for access to all of Aberystwyth. Sea view from our top floor room. Very good value for money. I would stay there again and happily recommend the B&B.

I have never written a TripAdvisor review before but felt compelled to do so after an excellent stay at the Shelley Town Residence. I chose to stay here because it was so inexpensive, and didn't expect such attention to detail. I had booked a single room but, as a double room was available, I was immediately offered an upgrade free... More

The lady serving breakfast was very helpful and very nice. However, there were some extremely noisy and drunk guests during my stay, which showed little respect for other guests. The extreme noise was when they came home late, being entirely drunk and continued being noisy during the night. People at breakfast talked about the noise, which means they kept everybody... More
