We were given a warm welcome on arrival by the owner/manager Louis and this warmth lasted throughout our stay. On first appearances, it seems a slightly quaint, chintzy place and our room (room 2) had the look of a ship's cabin with its compact dimensions and wooden ceiling. However, it proved to be very cosy and comfortable with plenty of hot water for the shower, a good tv picture/quality (have found this is not a given in many places) and we even found an allergy-free pillow in a cupboard which was ideal as we'd forgotten to ask about this. A cooked breakfast was included which was tasty and the fact they used lovely bread for the toast was a welcome detail (again not always the case in other places). The location is excellent, just round the corner from the seafront and the picturesque Aberystwyth Castle. It was peaceful even on a Saturday night, although the town centre is only a short walk away. Although our room didn't have a good view, I think some of the rooms do have sea or Castle views (would need to check) but this didn't matter as in a couple of minutes we'd walked to the promenade to drink coffee (from a handy beach hut kiosk) on the well maintained picnic benches facing the sea (also handy for sitting on with a late night pizza from the town centre), before roaming around the Castle ruins . We'd been staying here while visiting the Machynlleth Comedy Festival and if you don't mind a half hour drive, it's easy to get there & back and we found it a handy way to see a bit more of the area.
