Beautiful boutique style little hotel just in front of the sea. Old building very well equipped and serviced, comfortable and cozy, it has also a great restaurant. May be the LED TV could have been bigger, but truly nothing to regret.

Even though there is not that many rooms in the hotel but it is such a treat to stay in Gwesty if in Aberystwyth. Really love returning to it when over on business . Room is lovely with a fantastic ensuite. Had a cracking evening meal and brilliant breakfast in the morning. Staff are so friendly. Look forward to returning

Nice bed and breakfast but would say this is 5*. I suspect the other rooms do not have the same issue but room 2 was noisy and this impacted my stay. It sounded like there was a fan in the kitchen below (noise stopped off until 9.45pm), it appears that some plumbing must be routed via this room as could...

We booked the 4 ocean view rooms (1 adult per room) on our Welsh road trip. They were fantastic! A highlight of our trip. Dinner and breakfast were wonderful. The staff couldn't have been more personable and lovely. Aberystwyth castle ruins are just down the street. Also, a must see!

Lucky to get a last minute reduced rate room on our way home from Anglesey. Well appointed modern room - loved the wood and slate furniture. Breakfast could be improved with better cereals, granola and 🍉 fruit. Dinner menu looks amazing though

It's not big but the staff are friendly and helpful. My room was a good size but the wardrobe rail was too high for me! Shower was great. Dinner was local produce (saddle of rabbit) with a good wine list. Excellent breakfast with perfectly poached eggs and smooth coffee.

We were so pleased to find our stay at the Gwesty Cymru in Aberystwyth to be even more than we expected! First, the employees greet you warmly and help get you settled in the rooms. Second, the rooms are beautiful, clean, and have everything you need. Third, the hotel is so perfectly located directly across from the ocean beach, pier...

Saturday night in Aberystwyth! This hotel is located right on the seafront and our room looked out over the bay. Parking may be a nuisance but the hotel warrants the mild irritation of finding a parking spot. Our room was of a good size with enough space for a couple of arm chairs from which to enjoy the view out...

Good hotel , clean and polite . Room was modern with lovely sea views . Food was good but perhaps more needed on the menu . Breakfast was again good but portions for the cooked breakfast could have been bigger . I would recommend this hotel
