“Good Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a very good location for visiting Aberystwyth, just a street way from the promenade and Cliff Railway, and a pleasant short walk into the town centre.
The hosts are very friendly and helpful - Thankyou.
The room was spacious and well appointed, bed was very comfy
Breakfast was very nicely cooked & presented, and it tasted good.
The shower room was a good size and whilst it was very clean my problem was with the black discoloration of the sealant around the shower making it look dirty/mouldy.
Parking was over the road in a clinic car park and was very handy and free (Saturday Night)
I would recommend this as good place to stay.

This is a lovely B&B in a quiet location but very close to the seafront and bars/ restaurants. Our room (5) was large, and even with the sofa bed set up for a child there was plenty of space for a family. Good size shower room. Very reasonable price. There is absolutely no noise at night so you get a great sleep. Breakfast was plentiful, juices, cereal, good range of hot options, all served in the pleasant conservatory. All of the staff were very helpful. If I am in the town again I would happliy stay here.

We were greeted by David who was very friendly and helpful. Our room was decorated in an Edwardian style with leather chairs positioned in front of large windows. Very comfortable! Lovely bathroom, very clean. Location was perfect, close to city, bay, and transportation. Great breakfast in lovely sunroom. We enjoyed our stay very much. We would love to return to Aberystwyth and stay at the Bodalwyn again.

Stayed for one night so we could visit the Devils Bridge and travel on the Rheidol Railway.
The location is near the town centre and is great for parking, the beech plus bars, restaurants and the train station.
The b&b is in an attractive building and was easy to spot. On arrival we were given a warm welcome and taken to a very well presented double room. It even had a sea view (just.) the shower room was dated but perfectly adequate and spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was good, nice ingredients reasonably well made and good service, great fresh coffee!

Stayed with friends at the Bodalwyn over August Bank Holiday weekend to attend a wedding, the owners, Clive and Hilary, could not have been more friendly, the rooms, food and advice on travel etc could not have been better, and importantly all delivered with a smile and a friendly manner, so important these days and so difficult to find at many many establishments. First stayed in Aberystwyth over 40 years ago, good to see its moving along but retaining most of its charm and even the sun showed up as well.

Room Tip: Sea views are available

Great seaside B&B, with a great location, good views and quiet position. Rooms clean and linens great. Room had nice sofa to relax and good TV. Bathroom a little small but good enough for us.
Breakfast good with plenty to eat.

Room Tip: front rooms have best view

Hilary and Clive remain the perfect, welcoming hosts of this delightful home-from-home guest house. Our room (No.3) was spotless and the bay window afforded both a comfortable sitting area and a pleasant view of the sea. Bedding and towels were immaculate and the rooms fittings and fixtures - especially the magnificent tile fireplace - gave it a wonderful Victorian/Edwardian "feel". The ensuite was adequate, though limited space meant that the shower cubicle was cosy rather than spacious.
Breakfasts are pre-ordered and cooked to perfection. The dining area includes a glass conservatory which is bright and spacious but, sadly, just a little too far up the side of the house to benefit from the sea view. We LOVE the dining room grasshoppers! The Bodalwyn is up there with the best guest houses in Wales (and is possibly the very best in Aberystwyth.) Book it - you won't be disappointed.
