I've stayed in Aberystwyth many times and the Richmond was my best experience to date. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre. All the areas are clean, bright and comfortable. Our room had a great view over the seafront.The staff are very friendly and helpful. The cooked breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of cereals. We... More

This small hotel on the seafront is exactly as advertised. Any criticisms would be minor points. I had a room on the third floor. I tested the internet, it was 8 download and .5 upload, which is a lot better than other hotels I have stayed in, despite the low upload. Totally adequate for browsing the internet or emails etc....

Three of us stayed for two nights in this clean, comfortable and very friendly hotel. The room was spacious with comfortable beds, good shower and a great sea view from the bay window. The breakfast was excellent, with a very good array of fresh fruit, cereals and freshly cooked breakfast - bacon and sausage were locally sourced. The staff were... More

Stayed for a second visit. Hotel spotless, staff friendly and attentive. Possibly one of the best cooked breakfasts I've had in a UK hotel of late. Great location on the seafront. Beds comfy, and shower was a joy! Great for a short break or longer stay!

Stayed here on the 8th November. Very friendly people. I had a room at the top of the building which was quite and comfortable. Being at the top the pressure in the shower was a bit low. Otherwise everything else was clean and tidy. Breakfast was very nice and really liked the fact that you could choose what to have.... More

This was a last minute stop. Room was perfectly pleasant. Managed to park my rather large car fine! Receptionist Alistair was charming and waitress at breakfast delightful. Breakfast was very good with plenty of fruit and fresh ingredients for breakfast plus freshly cooked bacon and eggs. Felt that B and B price was decent value.

Stayed at this hotel on business trip. Fabulous location with amazing sea views. Great room with large double bed, nice sitting area in the bay window - great for watching the waves crashing against the promenade!! Decor is a little tired but facilities were all there and good. Great breakfast with lots of choice and fresh. All in all really... More

Hubby and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. The hotel is well situated and enjoys beautiful views overlooking the bay. We were able to park our car at the hotel car park and that is a real bonus. Check in was very smooth but they did ask if we would be eating in the... More

I stayed just for one night for business but the hotel had everything I needed. I asked for a room facing the sea and despite a very stormy night I slept very well. The views were brilliant, I lost an hour just watching the waves hit. The room was spacious and clean. The bed comfortable and the shower hot -... More

We stayed for a couple of nights while visiting our son. The hotel was very comfortable, nice room overlooking the sea & great shower. The staff were very friendly & the food was good. We would have no hesitation in booking in again & hope very much we will.
