Really nice place with lovely friendly staff. Very clean and warm welcome on arrival. Some aspects of room decoration slightly dated but comfortable beds and a very restful stay. Breakfast was served by in a very timely manner and everything was really well presented.

Also as a gay couple we're aware that some places can be a bit funny with us. Either a bit unwelcoming or over the top on showing how accepting they are. Not at all the case here. Top marks for just being normal towards us! Will stay again when we come back in summer.

Spent one night here on a brief visit to the area. From the telephone call making the booking we already had a favourable impression of the friendly nature of the hotel. The location is excellent - on the promenade in Aberystwyth with the beach across the road and a private car park behind.
All the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Our room was in the front of the hotel and we could sit in the window and watch the waves pounding the beach. The room was very clean and comfortable and we both slept well.
There was a good choice of food which was tasty, well presented and very good value for money. We will definitely stay here again when we visit the area later in the year as it is a lovely old fashioned family run hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the sea.

This is not for those who like chic accommodation or trendy decor. But it's warm, friendly and comfortable.
It also has some great rooms with sea views. I stayed in one and could hear the waves as I went to sleep.

It comes across as a small family run hotel which offers good value.

Room Tip: A room with a sea-view is a must!

Clean, modernised old seafront hotel. Our room had a panoramic view of the sea. Very quiet, the only sound was the lapping of the waves on the beach. Linen tablecloths at breakfast. Cheerful, patient waitresses. Seconds on cooked items if you wanted more. Unfortunately the restaurant was not open in the evenings this time of year, so we had evening meals at the nearby Marine Hotel.

Room Tip: Old style hotel, stairs everywhere, so elderly/disabled be forewarned

Stay over the weekend to visit our Nephew who is at the University. The hotel is very warm and welcoming with just a hint of a bygone age. A real gem. The room was lovely and warm with a fabulous view of the sea across the road. The bathroom was modern and very good. Bed was comfotable with very good quality linen.

All in all a great place which we most certainly will return too.

Stayed at the Richmond as a couple visiting my Partner's son who is studying at the Uni and were pleasantly surprised with this little gem.
Ideally located we had a comfortable room with a sea view and found the staff friendly and helpful.
Looks like we'll be back a few times during the next 3 years!
Breakfast was great - wide choice and plenty of it.

I stay at the Richmond regularly on business and can thoroughly recommend. The staff are so helpful and the rooms are always clean and airy. Breakfast is great and feels just like a home from home. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Aber then this is it.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the sea are great on a summers night.
