Just back from a two night stay at the Richmond and can't wait to go back! The hotel is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable - a stone's throw away from the sea and with it's on car park, which is very unusual and extremely useful. We stayed in room 15 on the second floor, which has an amazing sea view... More

We only stayed for one night and a very nice night it was. Room 23 on the top floor had excellent sea views, a comfortable bed and was quiet. Great. Breakfast was nice, cooked to order served by friendly staff. My only slight niggles- the room was too hot and was difficult to cool down even with the windows open... More

We stayed just one night and wished it had been for longer. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, it was lovely and warm and the breakfast was great too (proper orange juice!). We were upgraded to a suite and had great sea-views from both the bedroom and the lounge. The only downside was the long haul up all... More

Stayed at the Richmond hotel for one night whilst visiting Aberystwyth University and what a delightful place. Room 3 with sea view, a double and a single bed. Ensuite shower room and toilet and a decent size shower it was. Hotel was quiet even though it had quite a few guests staying. Breakfast served between 8 am and 9.30 am... More

Stayed overnight to see a show in the Arts Centre. Stayed in room 10 and our friends in room 11. Both rooms had fabulous sea views. The rooms were warm, comfortable and clean with lovely bathrooms. No complaints about the breakfast with plenty of choice and served by friendly staff. Perfect position for a visit to Aberystwyth with the added... More

We have been coming to Aberystwyth for 14 years and the Richmond is by far our favourite place to stay.We like room 7, which is a twin, ensuite with lovely sea views along North Beach to the pier. We have stayed there 4 times and have always found it warm, comfortable, clean, with very friendly staff and an amazing breakfast.... 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....
