Exactly what you want from a seaside guest house.
Very nice staff, we had a dog friendly room overlooking the sea which was brilliant. A bit of a spruce up here and there wouldn’t go amiss but for the price and location was exactly what you’d expect. Definitely highly recommended

Lovely hotel nice and quiet, amazing sea view. Had a really relaxing 3 night stay and enjoyed Aberystwyth. Hotel is ideally placed to explore the town

3/5 Okay

Location was perfect
We booked a room with a sea view and that aspect was lovely to watch and hear from the chair in the bay window. The extra touch of binoculars and bird books were thoughtful. However the windows needed a really good clean as the water marks and bird faeces was not pleasant. There was a table in the bay window that had a tray with tea making facilities, unfortunately the electric socket for the kettle was near the bed and the wire was not long enough, so I had to put the base of the kettle on the carpet to heat the water which did not seem safe to me. We paid £70 for the night with no breakfast option and we feel overall our room needed tender loving care, the floor boards creaked and the curtains were difficult to close on the runner, I had to stand on a chair to be able to get the angle to pull it closed.
