I stayed here for only one night (I was booked in for the week) as it was a truly awful experience. The problem comes if you are given a room in the annexe part of the building, which - frankly - is of such a hugely inferior quality to the hotel it does it a massive disservice. The rooms in the main building look nice from the photos, but it is of course a lottery as to whether or not you get one of those
My problems here are two-fold: (i) My room was cramped, smelled of damp and was in a poor state of repair (the blinds fell down as soon as I tried to close them); and (ii) the reception staff were mildly disinterested at best, erring on rude at worst. My room also lacked any wi-fi access, which in 2013 is unacceptable (especially as was in town on business). The receptionist seemed entirely disinterested when I politely asked if I could have a room with wi-fi.
What is worse is that my colleague (also booked in for a week, also only stayed one night) found his room in a terrible state. Not only were there hairs in the shower and a half-eaten Fudge on the side table but - disgustingly - a used tissue beside the bed. When he notified the hotel receptionist of this she just got irritated and was quite rude to him. I'm assuming she gets harrassed and irritated alot working in the Marine but failed to graps the basic tenets of working in a service industry.
There are far, far better B&B's in Aber that are cleaner, have friendlier owners and make for a relaxing time away. Avoid this like the plague.
