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.

We stayed in the blue room which was perfect, the room had a sea view and two chairs by the window which was just perfect for sitting and watching the world go by. The bathroom had a large bath which again overlooked the sea and a separate shower. There was no parking spaces outside the hotel but we rung the... More

Hotel on the seafront which unfortunately didn't have a sea view. This was still a really nice, friendly place to stay. Spotlessly clean and modern. Had a good couple of nights sleep in a nice comfy bed. The only down side was the window over looking the kitchen (red room) which was a shame but as we did not spend... More

We booked last minute, unfortunately didn't get a sea view but still liked our room. It was quite small but everything was just right. Attention to detail and with a luxurious finish that I like. The bed was very comfortable, a bit of a squeeze with the suitcase but no other complaints. The bathroom was very large with a fantastic... More

I stayed at this hotel many years ago when it had previous owners and was no more than a B&B. My memory of it was that it was quite cramped and very dated. The new owners have done a great job - the place is very modern, clean and the staff were all friendly and helpful. It's still very small... More

Hotel at the seafront. Rooms with a sea view. Comfy chairs in baywindow. Modern unintrusive interior. Nights can get noisy when students celebrate at the seafront.Lovely breakfast. Superb in-house restaurant (reservation requested) with fully licensed bar. Staff very friendly and helpful.

My only regret is we only spent 2 days here. The town, the people and the room completely exceeded any expectations we had. They say the Welsh people are some of the most friendly in the world. After spending two days with them I can tell you it is true. My wife and I cannot wait to go back and... More

After a recent dinner at Gwesty, it was good to return for a one night stay. With the university connection, we're frequent visitors to Aber' and have sampled many of the hotels. It's money well spent to stay here. You have the guarantee of good locally sourced food cooked with flair and imagination served by friendly staff. Rooms and service... More
