Maes-Y-Mor
Ranked #6 of 36 Aberystwyth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2012

Maes-y-Mor is a nice and clean guest house just around the corner of the beach. Our room was clean and looked as it was newly refurbished recently. The bathroom was clean too and I really liked the stool in there. We had in the attic and it was quite hot. The cinema next door can be heard but is not loud enough to disturb one's sleep. The kitchen was clean and well equiped too.
On the whole it was a nice place but I don't know if I would stay there again as the landlady was a bit unfriendly. She was hardly there and I had the feeling that she didn't really care about anything as long as she gets the money.

Thank you for your review. We are open from 8am to 10pm 7 days a week, and always answer the phone 24hour . I am not at the hostel all that time as I am on call and will be there in 5 minutes.
I try my best and keep the cost down for the customer so we we manage on small staffing. I always tell the guest if arrving to phone me or text me or I will meet them if I know the time.
I was shocked that you thought I was unfriendly as I always make conversation to all guests and always will help if needed, I even collect guests from the train Station.
I do ask for payment on arrival if staying for 1 night , and I will confirm this with guest if booking by email. I have never felt this a problem with guests ,,
I am glad you thought the room was clean as I do take lot of pride in the place, despite the place is buget Accommodatio.

I have stayed here quite a few times as well as my fiance and my mum. It is the best value for money from all the hotels in Aberystwyth. Very clean and comfortable. The only thing is that you have to share the bathroom but when you are out and about all day that is not a problem. Very good location too and helpful lady owner.

This is the second time my daughter and I have stayed here for a getaway few days and we love it. The owner and her staff are really friendly, the whole place is lovely and clean and we were able to make full use of the kitchen for our meals.
The house is literally around the corner from the beach and a few minutes walk from all the amenities of the town.

Arrived late Monday afternoon and was a little apprehensive as never stayed at a hostel before, but was amazed at the great location (round the corner from the beach).
Rooms are very well furnished, clean, with very good facilities... they were cleaned every day, beds made and clean towels provided.
Bathroom and kitchen were very clean and well equipped and even though there we a few people around very accessible.
Very friendly landlady..
Would very much recommend for singles, couples, or small family.

Have now stayed here twice and will do so agin next time we head this way. We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms last year, right next to the bathroom. And this time, two weeks ago, we stayed in the downstairs family room, which is en-suite. Lovely furnished rooms, clean, warm, comfy beds and friendly landlady. A real budget gem! I much rather have the kitchen fascilities than the pay over the top for the added B&B breakfast. And it's just around the corner from the sea! I would recommend this to anyone visiting Aberystwyth!

Had a great 3 night stay in Maes Y Mor - great rooms, friendly service from both the owners and staff. Really comfortable beds, shared kitchen with everything you need in it, really close to the sea (a minutes walk away just round the corner), local shops just up the road, good free wifi in every room. All this for a bargain price - highly recommended if your travelling to Aberystwyth and looking for somewhere with good quality rooms at a great price to stay.
