We booked in to the 'hotel' at a very average bar, wooden floors no frills working mans bar, the room was ok but certainly not up to Premium standard like we booked, very noisy at night, bed uncomfortable. In all it was ok but not worth £100 for 1 night.

Slightly off putting bar downstairs but as a quiet, clean bed for the night a great location. Easy walk into the town for restaurants etc and very near the castle ruins. The rooms have obviously recently been re-furbished & re-carpeted.

We stayed here for one night, the hotel is well located for the town and seafront. The room was clean and well decorated, breakfast is served in your room but is excellent value at an extra £5 per person. Staff are very friendly.

There's not a great deal of high quality accommodation in Aberystwyth. In fact, I've found none at all. For me, this is a well positioned hotel, being slightly away from the main town centre and more within a residential area near to the marina. That's not to say it's far from the town centre, because it's not. Takes around 5... More

I was sold on this place because it was 4 star hotel and the photos looked great. Unfortunately the hotel rooms are grotty the carpet is filthy the shower is covered in mould. The doona cover is stained too. Would definitely not recommend the hotel. I am very disappointed.

Stayed here for a graduation ceremony. The hotel is above the bar. From the outside it looked a bit tired however the rooms were very nice indeed. Comfortable bed, modern bathroom and nice decor. The lady in charge was pleasant and helpful. The barman was also friendly. Something to be aware of bar doesn't open till 3pm weekdays. I would... More

...not without a couple of flies in the ointment. We, like other reviewers, found parking a bit hard going, but it's in a street right next to the promenade, in a high-density residential area. It's difficult to hold the hotel accountable for that. We also had to wait a few minutes for a member of staff to appear to check... More

We booked one night to end a short coastal break further South. Aberystwyth was the perfect staging post heading north to Snowdon and then home. This hotel was realistically priced and appeared well situated. The rooms are refurbed and the Staff fab. However the Pub below the rooms is open until 2:30am in the week and 4:30am at the weekend.... More

This is a very characterful old pub. The rooms are lovely and well appointed although the TV was at a neck breakingly high up angle. Check on was fine, done via the bar but checkout a bit odd. Just a case of finding the cleaner and leaving the keycard on the bar. Not sure whether or not I've been charged... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sympathetically restored Edwardian hotel originally designed in the style of the traditional ‘London Gin Palace,’ situated in the old town of Aberystwyth, just a stone's throw from the castle grounds.You can look forward to a warm Welsh welcome. This newly restored hotel has a contemporary luxurious feel, just yards from the beach, harbour and marina. All rooms are en-suite and furnished to a lavish standard with hand made furniture and the indulgence of Egyptian cotton linen.Why not sit back and relax with a glass of champagne and enjoy excellent views of the sunsets over Cardigan Bay? Or you can enjoy a drink in our friendly local bar before retiring to your luxury suite and slipping into crisp Egyptian cotton sheets. And if all this isn't enough, to complete your treat, breakfast will be served to you in bed the following morning.We strive to provide local, ethically sourced products wherever possible. ... more   less
