I always spend time choosing my hotels and it certainly paid off when I recently stayed at the Gwesty Cymru Hotel in Aberstwyth. We choose a sea facing double room (no 6/blue room) which is up a few stairs and opens up to a small hallway with a very sumptuous Bath room with bath looking out to sea and a...

We were late booking (2 days before) so didn't get a sea view however the rest of the stay made up for it. Room was very comfortable and v nicely decorated. There were a couple of bulbs out but no problem (room 5). We didn't gave dinner there but breakfast was very good, good choice and good quality grub. We...

Excellent staff, lovely food. Clean and contemporary. Some people have noted an issue with parking, but we found it easy. Free on the street for up to four hours & overnight. Would most definitely visit again

Not cheap but great hotel in Aber. The breakfasts are really tasty. The seafront rooms are very calm and have amazing views. It rained on our trip and we still spent sometime just sat in the room looking out at the sea!

Just stayed the one night but we lucked out with beautiful weather - room with a view over the bay and then an excellent evening meal. Food really was good - between us we had the scallops, arancini and scotch egg for starters followed by the cod, duck and sea bass - all cooked perfectly and really tasty. Highly recommended...

The dinner meal we had in the restaurant was superb! Staff member, Nerys, went out of her way to help with parking and laundry ... as well as the standard stuff. Would...

This is our favorite place to stay in Aberystwyth, go for a sea front room, but not the top floor, for the best views. The restaurant is very good and the staff are friendly and helpful. Parking can be a problem.

I've been an occasional traveller to Aberystwyth over the years and I spent a couple of nights here recently. The rooms were clean, with tasteful modern furnishings and decoration that makes the most of the amazing sea view. The hotel is set a little back from the road, reducing the effect of street noise. Staff were very helpful and friendly....

I stayed here last month in the single room as part of a business trip to Aberystwyth. The service was excellent! We were, unfortunately, unable to eat at the Gwesty in the evening as they were fully booked for Valentine's day, but the staff recommend a lovely alternative place to have a meal. It was nice that all the staff...

Nice place with pleasant surroundings. Could do with a decent external door closer, as door slams and is very loud. The menu was good and bilingual, the staff were friendly and service was good. Staff forgot to bring an order of tea, to the table at the end if the night. The halloumi starter was very small, but the menu...
