The rooms are a good size, clean and the sea views to the front are sensational, I was treated to many glorious sunsets. The thing thats sets this hotel apart from many is the staff, I never...

The menu for breakfast was very good with an excellent selection of fruits. The cooked meal was cooked to order and the girls serving in the restaurant were very helpful and... More

Fantastic, clean hotel. Lovely seaview rooms. Amazing breakfast with a great choice. Rooms clean and beautifully decorated. Well worth a visit. One thing but didn't affect my stay: blackout curtains would be useful in the rooms which have a streetlamp directly outside!

The hotel is located on the promenade just 15 metres from the sea and a very short stroll to the town centre with it's interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. We managed to walk 10 miles on the Saturday along the... More

We wanted a seafront hotel, with bay windows, comfortable beds, and great breakfast... and voila the Richmond ticked every box. We were returning to Aber, with another couple, having left uni there over 30 years ago. The Richmond was around back in the 80s, and has stood the test of time really well. The owners should be very proud of... More

Very friendly, polite staff. Fantastic sea view from the room. Very clean, with attention to detail. Breakfast was excellent with a good range of items on offer-plenty to choose from. A lovely power shower with the largest, softest towels you could ever wish for! Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Just spent 2 nights at this hotel, for a half term break, and we certainly picked a gem. Staff were very friendly, especially at breakfast, but were not obtrusive. Food was very good and plentiful, only wish we had more time so we could have had dinner there, as it looked like it would have been delicious. Our room was... More
