I started university in aber 21 years ago and wanted to bring my husband to visit. Found Gwesty Cymru online and with the views of the bay and comfortable rooms we were not disappointed. Breakfast was also great. Staff were attentive and friendly. Very pleased and would certainly recommend to others!

We stayed on a Saturday night and had dinner here, thank goodness. There wasn't many restaurants around. The food was fresh and delicious. Breakfast was also great. Stayed in the red room on the ground floor, comfortable bed. The only issue we had was the noise at our window being outside the kitchen - it was very humid and we... More

The Gwesty Cymru is a lovely seafront hotel. We stayed one night in room 5 - rear of the building. We did not request a sea view as we live on the sea already. The room was small, but the bed and bedding were excellent. The ensuite was equipped with a rain shower and ample space. The restaurant, located on... More

The best thing about the place is the restaurant. The breakfasts were great, but the dinners were beyond brilliant. I loved my dinner there the first night so much that I returned the second just to have the same outstanding experience again. The room was probably the best available in the town. It was small without a view. The bathroom... More

Only stayed one night in a sea facing room but could not find any fault with the hotel. The room was located on the second floor which outside the UK would be the third floor. I was very grateful for the hotel manager carrying my very heavy suitcase up the narrow stairs. The bathroom which we saw first when entering... More

We had a lovely stay coming back to our uni town - amazing views, stunning bathroom and comfy bed. Friendly staff and spotlessly clean room. Scotch egg for breakfast was a nice change! Hoping to return soon :-)

We were booked into Gwesty Cmyru by our travel agent in the USA and had no idea what to expect, having being told only “just a small hotel on the sea front”. On arrival we saw from the outside what looked like the many guest houses/B&Bs in that locale except for a restaurant on the lower level. We were checked... More

If you are looking for a good quality hotel in central Aberystwyth then this is probably your only choice. It is situated on the sea front amongst other Victorian properties that are past their best. It is set back with a terrace for eating and drinking. Parking is a problem as there is a 4 hour limit next to the... More

On the back of some great reviews and recommendations we'd been meaning to try out this hotel for some time. Finally got around to booking a Saturday night in June to visit son and partner who live in Aberystwyth... Arriving on a sunny Saturday afternoon caused us a few problems in finding street parking. We initially had to park a... More

A lovely quaint little hotel on the seafront, ideally located in aberwrystwyth. The place generally feels new and clean (apart from the carpet in the room) and the staff were very friendly. At breakfast we had a good choice of food and it all was very tasty. We went for one of the cheaper rooms, which was still £90 a... More
