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.

+ Amazing sea view, right by the beach promenade! (Remember to ask for the sea view when you book the room!) + Excellent location, within a short walking distance from everything (including the railway station). + A well-kept hotel, friendly staff. + Good breakfast (included in our room rate): a typical English breakfast cooked to order, plus a selection of...

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

The bathroom was well equipped and decorated. The bed was comfortable. Staff were welcoming when we arrived and service was efficient. Stayed for dinner and breakfast. Both... More

We stayed at the Richmond for one night to celebrate my husband's birthday. I requested a sea view room and this was confirmed by email. We were not disappointed. The view is not only a wonderful one of the bay but the window is perfect for sitting in the two armchairs for a bit of people watching. Breakfast was fantastic... More

An old building, evidenced by the slope in the upper floors............ But that is the only fault ! It is spotlessly clean, well maintained and decorated, and testament to the commitment of its owners to providing the best they can to their patrons. At the end of the day, it's a seaside hotel........ but a really comfortable, welcoming, homely abode.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed the night on the 5th to the 6th of June. We had a lovely drive up to Aberystwyth and checked in about half 2 in the afternoon. The hotel has a lovely back garden, the entrance is smart and the reception, bar room and dining room are very welcoming. Our room had a sea front... More

Stayed here after being let down by another well know hotel in the town the previous evening.... This place is in a great location ...needs modernizing now big time and a real funny smell seemed to linger all about the hotel... The food was average and nothing to right home about ....I wouldn't recommend it and won't stay again.

This family run hotel is beautifully located on the seafront. The staff and the owner are friendly and very helpful if you do not know the town. The rooms at the front have great views over the sea although if you are at the top of the hotel, it is a bit of a hike up the stairs. Rooms are... More
