This was a family lunch on a Sunday. As the only negative the first sitting is from 12noon which is a bit soon after breakfast. Anyway, the restaurant is bright and airy, contemporary design, menu that is well laid out and clearly described in English and Welsh. We were promptly attended to and the drinks were not long coming. Service... More

3 night stay in room 6. Great view of the sunset whilst enjoying a glass of wine in the bath! Room average size but lovely to relax sat in armchairs in the bay window watching the holiday makers on the promenade. Breakfast is very good although service could be quicker and waitress needs to be 'warmer' and more welcoming. This... More

The traditional seafront holiday hotel seems to be a dying breed, but the owners of this hotel seem to have rejuvenated the concept successfully. Not a cheap option, by any means, but this has the feeling of an upscale boutique hotel on a small and friendly scale. The influence of an interior designer is obvious in the architectural radiators (I... More

Gwesty gorau Aberystwyth heb os nac oni! Aberystwyth's best hotel! Great location! Rooms are modern, spacious, tasteful and comfortable. Superb food at breakfast, lunch and dinner - and a very warm Welsh welcome! Great spot to sit and watch the world go by! Would return tomorrow if I had the chance!

Very nice hotel with a very friendly and helpful staff. The restaurant is very good and the breakfast equally so. Free wi-fi could do with a stronger signal as it nearly dies when closing the door to the room.Apart from that, highly recommended

We stayed for one night in August in the Green room. A small room, but well appointed but hotter than the Sahara! The window was closed shut on arrival but opening it didn't seem to make much difference. There were two fans in the room and we had one of them going all night but we were still BOILING! The...

Great hotel, clean with great sea view from room one, superb walk in shower and friendly helpful staff! They even stored my wife's insulin in a fridge. Great base to explore west Wales from. Excellent breakfast. Will definitely return to this hotel for another break.

We only had one night in the Cymru, but really enjoyed it. The room was cosy and very well appointed with a modern shower and bathroom. We had a room at the back, so no sea view, but we knew that when we booked. Also no dedicated parking, but that was OK too.. Friendly and efficient staff on reception and... More

We stayed in room 4 overlooking the sea. You can watch the sun go down on two comfy chairs in the bay, wonderful. The staff are very friendly. The room was showing a few signs of wear compared to the web site but only minor. Our small gripe (but the room was £135 per night) was the house keeping, the... More

Modern guesthouse with very high spec rooms and an amazing breakfast right on the sea front with lovely sea views. Good service. I couldn't ask for any more of a B&B/guesthouse and its probably the best I have stayed in.
