We stayed on a very busy weekend in Aberaeron. We were dealt with straight away the room had everything we needed and was clean. Bathroom provided a lovely shower, the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was delicious - We spent an evening with friends downstairs in the pub and

Returned to the Castle on a rugby day, place was packed. We were not disappointed, atmosphere was great, staff were friendly, the beer was excellent. 3 televisions to watch the rugby on,wherever you are sat in the bar you can see the game. Thank you for a great evening.

When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with the decor. We went upstairs to get ready for our evening meal booked at the Harbourmaster. There wasn’t too much to worry about at that stage. Rooms seemed spacious and fairly decent although bathroom a bit shoddy and shower had

I am sorry that you aren't happy with your stay at the Castle, our bedding and towels are from the local laundrette and if you had a problem it would have been nice to have been able to rectify it. As we are a Public Bar with rooms and not a 24 hour hotel ,if the bar is empty at around 10pm during a week night we will close, this was explained to you. Unfortunately we are not able to stop people walking up to their rooms noisily, they are staying here also. Our mattresses are of a very high standard but I do apologise if they were not of your standard. As I was serving breakfast, i certainly did not throw things down on your table and the sugar bowl was on the table in front of you which I pointed out.Again I apologise for the wait for your breakfast, unfortunately we were a rather full breakfast room as everyone came at the same time. Apologies also if our staff uniform is not up to your high standards. Rachel (Manager}

We were staying locally and as we wandered down the high street this place looked very busy and most people were eating so we grabbed a table. Barmaid could've been a bit more friendlier. Ordered our food and drinks. Didn't have to wait too long. We both had veggie lasagne with

I am sorry that you did not have a very good experience at the Castle. I assume the young lady asked if everything was okay with your meal, if so then you could have asked for something different and we would have rectified it immediately. Apologies again. Rachel (Manager)

Have to agree.withe previous poster.Polar opposite to the customer friendly Harbour Master .This week reminded me why I don't go in very often .The member of staff serving exuded the vibe that she would prefer to be anywhere else than serving behind a bar. Only 1 of the 2

I am sorry that you didn't have a pleasant experience at the Castle,we have 3 tvs available, 2 of them are linked and can't show different channels and the 3rd is mainly used for music. As I remember I had plenty of people in that evening who wanted the music channels on the tvs and unfortunately it is a first come first served basis. As 2 more customers arrived to join your party of 2 , I asked the other customers who were in the bar first if they minded the football on and very kindly they said to change the channel. As it is not high season, only one ale is on at once , not two as we don't want too much waste. As we are not a cafe but a public bar that serves coffee, we tend not to serve coffee in the evening, if the coffee machine is off, it is cleaned ready for the morning. As its quiet by 10pm , the breakfast settings will be put out ready for the morning, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to leave. Apologies again. Rachel(Manager)
