Booked for one night as from the pictures it looked decent enough. Indeed the position on the promenade is excellent, not too far from the centre, the views are outstanding.....the pub has a good atmosphere, good ales and a relaxing 'gentleman's club' look. The food was a mixed affair: starter of butternut squash soup and goat cheese salad were very...

There are many B&Bs in Aberystwyth but hardly any proper hotels. The Glengower is the closest so far and is in a lovely location on the promenade. The room was big enough and the bathroom looked new with a good shower, fluffy towels and toiletries. The bed was comfortable and we had a sea view. The breakfast was excellent and...

Situated right on the seafront this is a place with an excellent range of real ales which are beautifully kept. The food is also excellent and there is a good selection. Watching the sea come in during the winter whilst you are in the warm is a joy. We will be going again.

Second time staying here, and very happy. This is a comfortable, unpretentious hotel which scores highly on friendliness and good service. We had a spacious and comfortable double room with a large bay window looking out to sea. The hotel is right on the seafront so you can here the waves crashing on the beach. The bed was comfortable, the...
