Good B&B in Aberystwith, my room (no. 3) was big, with a modern bathroom and old furniture with with character. Owners were very friendly and breakfast was good. Wifi signal was not good in the room though.

Really nice guest house with period decor/fireplace within the room. Exceptionally clean, friendly owners, great breakfasts. Located really near the Cliffe Railway and 3 minutes from the promenade. Would definitely recommend.

Not only was our room lovely with a great bathroom but we had a peek of the water. Clive, our host, was very personable and helpful. The best part for me was the delightful breakfast solarium! So attractive and bright! Breakfast was delicious. Although we were only there one night during our time walking on the Ceredigion Coastal Path we... More

I stayed here for one night (room 5). The room was spacious and quiet. The shower was powerful and worked perfectly. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast was very nice (grapefruit, fruit compote, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs - I didn't sample the full cooked breakfast that was on offer). I found everything to be extremely pleasant and I would... More

Pleasant stay - a very nice change from more conventional hotels in large cities. Bed surprisingly comfortable. Amenities in rooms appreciated. A little bit away from the seafront promenade - so quiet at night. Breakfast was promptly prepared each morning - simple but tasty fare. Just what we needed to set us up well for the day. Very friendly service... More

Very friendly, good filling breakfast with good quality ingredients. In a good location for just what was needed for an overnight stay to see the university. Room was clean, fresh and a good size and looked quite newly done out and lovely modern bathroom too.

If your daughter chooses Aber, we'd love to see you again. Good luck to her and all the best! Top tip though - if she is choosing Aber, book your accommodation for Freshers' Weekend stupidly early - before May half term ideally. Hilary and Clive More
