I stayed at the Richmond Hotel whilst on business in Aberystwyth. The first advantage is the private car park - I get the impression that most parking in the town is on-street which I'm not keen on when I don't know an area well. Check in was friendly and efficient and I was directed to a room at the top of the hotel. There are quite a few narrow stairs to get up there so people with any mobility problems would definitely need to speak to the hotel before booking. However, the lady on Reception kindly offered help with luggage (which I did not need).
The room itself had a bay window with a seating area in front of it with wonderful views right over the sea. The rest of the room was freshly decorated and extremely clean, comfortable and well stocked. My only slight quibble was that the large bathroom had no separate shower - but a shower attachment in the bath - but I'm sure I could have specified a room with a shower if I had thought of it.
The hotel has its own bar and restaurant area. I didn't use these on the one night I was in the town but breakfast was excellent. Lots of choices of fruit and cereal and very tasty and well cooked options.
I would recommend this hotel.
