In comparison to other guest houses I've stayed in, it's probably the one with the least facilities. It's the first time I've had a room without a TV and the first place I've stayed that didn't offer a cooked breakfast. It only had a single bathroom shared amongst all of the guests.
Other reviews I've read present this as one of the best guest houses in Aberystwyth but having stayed at a couple of others (whose names escape me at present), I'm inclined to disagree. It's a quiet location which goes in its favour but there are better, and cheaper, guest rooms in the town.
The girl left in charge at breakfast did not speak English and didn't seem to understand that I wanted to check out. Fortunately, payment had been made in advance so that avoided any awkward situations. Not her fault, of course, but I was surprised the owners left someone like that in charge and I suspect that was the reason a cooked breakfast was not served.
The bed was a little uncomfortable and sagged in the middle meaning that my partner and I often rolled into one another during the night.
All in all, it wasn't a terrible place but it wasn't a great place. I wouldn't discourage anyone from staying here but I would advise looking elsewhere first. Sorry.
