“Pleasant B&B - well situated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2009

Close by the south promenade, we found this to be a very comfortable B&B with well-equipped bedrooms. The host was very friendly and chatty.

Breakfast was freshly cooked and served quickly. There is no food in the evening but it is no more than a 10 minute walk to almost anywhere in town, so there are a number of choices available - we were given a town map showing the different restaurants in town. I would recommend the Gannets Bistro which is close by with really good food.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2007

This was the third and final B&B we stayed in during our trip around Wales in April. All were AA four star but I would have to say this one was not nearly as good as the other ones we stayed in.
While our room was lovely - clean, large, and had all the usual comforts - our en-suite bathroom didn't have a proper shower, just a shower head one foot above the bath.
The location was very good for the time of year, being right next to south parade but I suspect during the high season it would
be very noisy at night (we had a little noise but it was tolerable).
The most irritating thing was that we had to order our breakfast the night before and got little choice: full Welsh or continental. We didn't understand why we couldn't order on the day and pick and choose a little more (like in most other B&Bs). That said, the food was good and our hosts were friendly and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2006

We had two very pleasant nights stay at Glyn Garth. Our room was lovely, clean and nicely furnished. We had tea, coffee and water, plus a pleasant bathroom. The beds were comfortable and cosy. Breakfasts were excellent - when we asked for continental we were provided with a delicious fresh fruit salad.

The area around seems to have seen better days, and there was a fair amount of noise outside at (Saturday)night. There is a drug problem in Aberystwyth, and the sign in the hotel stating that drug dealing would not be tolerated said it all! In addition there is very little parking available nearby.

All in all, despite these reservations I would recommend the accommodation.

An excellent value for money hotel. Clean, homely and a pleasant family. Good manners are expected and brilliant for us - its NO smoking!
We will return. Hearty breakfast, well served. Small dining room - nice lounge - enjoy!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2004

The room was very tidy, no major problems though there wasn't a lock on the bathroom door. At one stage during the night we had somebody trying to open the room door. Luckily I had locked it so whoever it was outside could not get in.

The breakfast was fantastic! Though on the last morning there was a person sitting behind me with the flu. His coughing and spluttering caused me to come down with some sort of super flu which kept me bed ridden for a week.

I wasn't too happy about the hotel locking it's doors at 10pm (no typing error, 10pm!). Just when pubs are beginning to fill, I had to go back to the hotel.
