Best stay in Aberystwyth so far! Pleasantly surprised by the size of the room - paid slightly more for sea view and was well worth it. Room was clean and tidy and beds were warm comfortable. Nice to see a large fan in the room for use during those warm summer evenings. Shower seemed to have a bit of a... More

We visited the restaurant as we were told they were very dog friendly, which is true. There are water bowls throughout and dog biscuits on the bar. They are equally accommodating to the owners also. Staff are very friendly and efficient. We ate there for lunch once and our evening meal twice and every time the food and service were... More

Stayed at the Glengower in September dropping Son off at uni. The hotel is a pub/restaurant/hotel with the rooms located in the floors above the bar. Our roomed looked out to sea which was a gorgeous view especially with the tide in. The room was clean, with up to date furnishings, and had en-suite, courtesy tray (tea, coffee), TV etc.... More

Positioned at the quieter end of the promenade with an outdoor terrace looking out to sea, just perfect on a summer's evening. All the staff are very welcoming and helpful including the breakfast crew. Breakfasts are brought freshly cooked to the table not from a buffet bar and are excellent. Rooms are very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. There are... More

Located on the seafront, with parking along the road in front of the hotel, The Glengower Hotel is a reflection of Aberystwyth's Victorian past when the well-heeled of society came to the Welsh coast to enjoy the fresh sea air. A large bar and restaurant area are located on the ground floor, rooms on floors 1 and 2. A wide... More

Went to the restaurant here on a recommendation but sadly disappointed. The starters were ok but the main courses were appalling. The fish cakes were so overcooked they were hard, the lasagne was only 1cm deep in the dish with the top half centimetre a layer of rubberised cheese. Won't be returning.

What a great place to eat! Food was superb. Staff were very accommodating,. Informative and attentive when we asked for a veggie Sunday lunch it was no problem at all. When we asked about room prices a member a waiting on staff came back with a brochure and was less happy to help. Such a pleasant change. Views are not... More

We stayed at The Glengower as part of a mini tour of Liverpool and North/West Wales. Having used chain hotels at other destinations we decided to use The Glengower due to it offering a sea view at a reasonable price and as a break from Premier inns etc . If your a real ale/proper cider fan then your in for... More
