Lovely friendly hotel on the seafront with the soothing sound of the waves breaking on the beach while you sip your coffee in the window seat of your room or drift off to sleep in the very comfortable bed. In no way a modern hotel just all the home comforts in a relaxing but not inspiring decor. However, all spotless,... More

What a little gem in Aberystwyth... A lovely comfortable and homely hotel right on the front. Lovely to go to sleep to the sound of the waves and the wind..do go for a sea view. Comfortable rooms..a little on the small side but perfectly adequate. The only reason I haven't classified it 'excellent' is because of the lack of a... More

Spotless place with lovely friendly staff. We had a sea view room which was really nice. On our return from a walk around the town and food we retired to our room....it was really cold and the windows were were letting in a bad draft. The mattress was a bit firm but we slept really well. Onto breakfast....I can honestly... More

The sunset is fantastic as the hotel is right on the promenade facing the west. The host is fantastic as well, and any guest interested in learning about Wales should spend some time talking with Mr. Griffiths. We didn't eat there, although in retrospect we wish we had. The dinner menu looked wonderful.

We stayed just one night at the Richmond Hotel but were really impressed. The car park at the rear (often the first you see of a hotel & yet so frequently shabby & neglected) was tidy & well presented. Booking & check-in were efficient & friendly. The hotel itself was beautifully warm, clean, comfortable & well maintained ... as was... More

The staff were friendly and it was clean, although there was a stale smell in the bathroom. The location on the seafront was excellent but the decor and fittings are very very dated and definitely not worth a hundred pounds a night! It looks like it was last decorated in the 70s! The bed was very uncomfortable and lumpy and... More

The room was of a good standard with everything that you would expect (TV,kettle, tea & coffee, biscuits, water etc). Although not the most modern hotel room it was comfortable and clean and a good size (double room for single occupancy). I did not eat dinner at the hotel but thr breakfast was superb, lots of choice of fresh fruit... More

We stayed for one night last Saturday and wish it had been longer! The room was very clean with a great view over the promenade out to sea. The bed was the most comfortable I had slept in at a hotel for a long while. The evening meal was absolutely fantastic, only complaint was that the portions were so large... More
