Stayed in the hotel a few times with family, always enjoy and look forward to staying. We were put in rooms 16, 17 and 18 last year which were fantastic but this year we were in the top floor flat for the second (or third, can't remember) time, and it's not as nice as other rooms. The wifi is also... More

I spent two nights at The Richmond in a clean, comfortable and pleasant single room on the third floor overlooking the garden and car park but with a lovely view of the town and hill behind. I had been worried about the noise from gulls as the hotel is right on the promenade but that turned out not to be... More

Free on-site parking a kind welcome. Our room (#7) relatively large, with double desks, long bathroom and built-in wardroom. Small table with two leather chairs to look out bay window at ocean <50 feet in front of you. Just shut windows tight if wind/waves sound gets to you. (But curtains don't completely block out outdoor hotel spotlights.) Critically, no lifts;... More

Husband and I have just come back from an overnight stay. As both my sons were at the University a few years ago, we stayed at the Richmond on quite a few occasions during that period and always found it clean, friendly and ideal for what we wanted. One of my sons now works at the University and we have... More

The hotel is set against Cardigan Bay, which is nice. Quite windy and rainy when we were there but otherwise lovely. There is a free castle ruin nearby (a few minutes walk) and the cliffside railway which gives a wonderful look over the town. The room we stayed in (17) is on the top floor, and there is no lift...

We really enjoyed our visit at the Richmond: lovely atmosphere, friendly and professional staff, brilliant breakfast with lots of variety, free wifi, good size room and a big shower. We had a great sea view from our bay window because the hotel's right on the sea-front, towards the middle of the bay.

This hotel is set on the sea front of Aberystwyth. My friend and I were very lucky to have room 7 as soon as you walk through the door you were greeted by the site of sea. With windows open you could also hear the incoming tide - beautiful! One small let down was the use of a fixed head... More
