To visit the Ricmond Hotel in Aberystwth is an experience. It is like taking a step back in time to when things weren't so complicated. It's position is fantastic with our room having a great ocean view and we were treating to an amazing sunset. Had alovely meal in the resaurant that night and the most fabulous breakfast. Rooms are... More

Right on the seafront with a spectacular view of Cardigan Bay, the Richmond Hotel is a great choice for a weekend in west Wales. Our room was bright, clean and comfortable with a view to die for. Our noses were pressed up against the window as we were treated to a stunning aerial exhibition by Aberystwtyth's finest starlings, as they... More

Stayed at this hotel with work and what a great hotel. The staff are really friendly from check in to the breakfast staff. All amenities in the room and from Welsh companies which is a lovely touch. I had a beautiful sea view room and the room was very comfortable. I was woken up one night by students on the... More

I booked 2 single rooms after looking at Trip Adviser reviews. The hotel is in a lovely position on the Aberystwyth sea front with excellent views. Everything was excellent and both rooms were doubles and in immaculate condition. The cleanliness could not be faulted and a hot drinks tray with biscuits and also shower toiletries were provided. My bed was... More

I have a serious gluten intolerance and usually find hotels a total no no, even 5*, however a recent stay at the Richmond was an unexpected delight. Our seafront room was immaculate and very comfortable, and my gluten free breakfast was delicious . Service was friendly and solicitous, and a great pride was clearly taken by all. It was excellent... More

We decided to book a last minute weekend away to one of our favourite coastal towns.. The Richmond provided exceptional value for money. Our room had stunning views over the sea and was very spacious. Breakfast which was included was lovely. My only negative comment would be the lack of a proper shower. The bathroom was very spacious but only... More

We met in Aber 49 years ago and this was the perfect place from which to explore and rekindle so many happy memories. We had a fab view of the sea and the prom from room 11 where we could relax with a cuppa in the bay window watching the sunset and the starlings. Not far to walk to the... More

A year on from our previous visit we were delighted to find the hotel as good as before. The staff were pleasant and helpful, my wife's need for a dairy-free breakfast (advised in advance) was more than amply met and the view of the sea, the prom and the murmurating starlings from Room 24 (top floor) was spectacular. The availability... More

My wife and I visited for a long weekend, taking advantage of Arriva Trains Wales' 'Club 55' offer. We arrived on a cold but bright afternoon with a distinctly chilly wind whipping the waves into froth on the deserted beach. The warm welcome at the cosy Richmond Hotel was therefore greatly appreciated. The reception area and bar were spotless and... More

I have stayed in a number of hotels in Aberystwyth over the last few years on business and can definitely say this is the best. It is spotless, staff are excellent and the location is fantastic. The breakfast is excellent as well. Will certainly be back. Thank you everyone at theRichmond for making my stay a home from home.
