We were able to book a table for five people very last minute. Staff were friendly on arrival and seated us in a large room with only one other guest. The view of the sea front was spectacular. We got handed creased paper menus and our drink choices arrived shortly after. However, the food was absolutely exceptional, well presented, very... More

This family owned hotel needs tremendous updating. Dated decoration, poor plumbing, poor restaurant presentation and decor, but with a wonderful position on the bay, means the hotel is not rated correctly. With a little thought and a realistic approach this hotel could give Aberystwyth the boost it deserves. The staff are lovely but this cannot hide the problems that persist... More

Myself and my Brother decided late on Thursday to go and have a weekend break and play some golf in Aberystwyth so we decided to try The Belle Vue and what a great choice we made. From the moment we arrived the staff were all very freindly and proffesional through out our stay and made us very welcome. I have... More

A review below mentions "old world creak and charm".Well the Old World part is accurate and the hotel definitely creaks. Charm however, is a matter of opinion. First and foremost, this hotel is an Aberystwyth Icon. Right on the seafront with a lovely view.Decent bar and restaurant. However, I believe the hotel needs some work done. I'm not saying a... More

Lovely seafront position.the bar,dining room and the bedroom all overlooked the seafront.the lady owner very sweet,took time out to speak to the guests.Dinner was lovely last night,breakfast this morning was nice too.Will definitely stay there again. The staff more than make up for any negative comments guests make.The staff are a credit to the hotel.Many thanks,Belle Vue.

There is no doubt about the fact the hotel is old, worn and creaky but that is part of its charm. You walk down dated corridors and our room – though we had a waterfront view – was teeny. What makes this hotel is the staff. We were driving and needed a hotel en route; the hotel was recommended and... More

Popped in here for a coffee and ended up having the cheesecake which was very interesting. Seemed to be a deconstructed cheesecake and a couple behind were having the roast lamb which looked posh. They seem to be trying to pursue a posh opinion. We stayed until 930ish and were able to watch the sun setting over the sea -... More

We spent two nights at the Belle Vue Royal. We had a lovely large room with a fabulous view over the promenade and sea. The hotel is undergoing sympathetic refurbishment to restore it to its former glory. The staff are so friendly and polite. The breakfasts were superb. We had an evening meal there which was very high class. We... More
