We have stayed here on three occasions and had a good time:- good room overlooking the promenade, good, helpful staff, and excellent cuisine for both breakfast and supper. It was nice just after we arrived after a tiring day of travel to siting the bay window of our room having tea and coffee. Then a great tasting supper followed by... More

I visited Richmond Hotel with my friend to celebrate my 50th Birthday. We found the hotel to be warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The reception and bar staff get an extra special thank you especially Alastair. All staff were professional,calm and very courteous to all guests. We stayed in room 3, first floor it... More

Tooth picks! No, really, call me odd but it's a rare place that has proper toothpicks as a matter of course. On sensible notes, the hotel is great - sadly, though, I was staying for a weekend for my Mum and therefore we had two single rooms. It's a long time since I've actually been in a single room with...

Although average, there is nothing wrong with that assessment. It is a good overnight stop, ideally situated for the town, with the bonus of superb sea views. We witnessed one of the best sunsets we have ever seen in the UK, sat in our room bay window. There is a little road noise, with a bust stop outside the Hotel... More

This is our second stay in the Richmond. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the breakfast good. It is reasonable value for money and has fantastic sea views. We use it to stay overnight when bringing/collecting our son to/from University as the journey is rather too far for a return in one day. Some of the room fittings... More

We had a room facing the water so that was pleasant. Room and bath were clean. Nice location for walking on the promenade. Breakfasts were good with a nice variety. Dinners were disappointing both to our friends who had been there previously and to us. Staff was friendly.

Had a fab 2 night stay here. We asked for room with sea view and were not disappointed. We were on first floor with two armchairs in the window overlooking promenade great for people watching and gazing at the sea. Lovely breakfast on both days. Ate dinner on one night reasonable price but the breaded haddock was overcooked and disappointing... More

Beautiful views of Cardigan Bay (and the promenade which has received much TLC since the winter storms) from the front rooms! My room was on the third floor. The stairs are fairly steep and there's no lift. It was a real pleasure to sit in the bay window and watch the sun set on a balmy September evening. The bedroom... More

The Richmond Hotel is right on the seafront. So close, that you can see the waves on the sea from the hotel dining room. (It must have been pretty scary during last winter's storms!). The dining room faces west, so you get the sunset too. Breakfast is eaten in the basement level breakfast rooms, so no view at breakfast time,... More
