Rhaid imi dweud fod y gwesty yma'n wych. I have to say that this hotel was excellent. We had a wonderful time excellent service, perfect decor, position, staff and service - nothing too much trouble and friendly beyond belief. My only tiny teeny moan is that I love feather pillows - but they were foam and I never sleep as... More

This really is a excellent hotel. This was my second visit. I spent three night in the attic room which is spacious, stylish and very comfortable. The sea view was a special treat. I had dinner each night in the restaurant and every course was wonderful and substantial. Even though Welsh is the first language used at this hotel English... More

Absolutely wonderful hotel, right on Cardigan Bay with a terrific beach view. Very comfortable room with good bed, well appointed bathroom. Food in the restaurant (breakfast and dinner) was killer! Full Welsh breakfast very tasty, served piping hot. For dinner we had roasted beet salad with pine nuts (yummy!) to start, blue cheese crusted squash and walnut tart and lamb... More

Went to Aberystwyth immediately after the stormy weather had hit the town on Huw's assertion that everything was fine and It was "Business as usual" and by golly he was right the sun shone and the sea was very well behaved. It was our first visit and won't be our last. The attention to detail was superb in every way... More

I booked this hotel for a special birthday surprise for my partners birthday. We stayed New Year's Eve, fantastic loft room with crisp linen and stunning furniture, we dined in the restaurant food was outstanding and locally produced, Beth and Huw were very attentive and professional ensuring there high standards are maintained. Can't wait to return :)))

For reasons too complicated to describe here we ended up in Aberystwyth for a weekend during a period of the most appalling stormy weather most of us have ever seen. It is now mid February and the paved area of the promenade in Aberystwyth looks like some madman has dumped x thousand tons of shingle and stones along it's length.... More

The welcome from the staff could not have been warmer or friendlier. This was a last minute booking that turned into a wonderful surprise. The facilities in the rooms were superior, but the biggest surprise of all was the wonderful dining room - if you've never had a breakfast Scotch Egg, give this hotel a try. It really is the... More

We had the attic room. Beautiful slate walls, exposed beams, the sound of the waves crashing outside. Beautiful bathroom with stunning details and nice toiletries. Clean crisp white linens, lots of attention to detail, and an awesome breakfast. Thank you, Gwesty Cymru, for making our trip so special.

On dydd santes dwynwen I booked a table for 22 people, within 15 minutes of arrival the starter was arriving, everyone received their food at the same time, staff also took drink orders, and it was delivered to the table promptly. Staff we're very accommodating. The food was delicious and there were clear plates all round at the end. Highly... More

My Girlfriend and I stayed at the Gwesty Cymru on the evening of January 18th as a surprise getaway for my Birthday, we stayed in room 4 and had fantastic sea views, we must have spent about an hour just watching the waves roll in to the bay, mesmorizing. The room was really clean, modern and very well laid out,... More
