Very happy with our brief one night stay at The Richmond. Had a double, Room 15 on second floor front with nice modern clean shower en-suite. Great view out to sea and a pleasure to sit in the chairs in the window watching the sunset and life on the Promenade in Fresher's Week! We were planning to stay in the Gwesty Cymru Hotel on spec, but it was fully booked when we rang and as it turned out we were glad we ended up in the Richmond as it was £20 min cheaper and we were happy enough. The £20 went towards dinner in the Olive Branch, the Greek Restaurant up on the left by the Pier which was very nice and rated highly on Tripadvisor Restaurants. Chose not to dine in the Hotel, but the menu and the dining room looked nice enough. Breakfast the next morning was served in the basement dining room (bit disappointing as no views), but the cooked breakfast itself was very good and freshly cooked to order.
Found the staff very nice also - the mature Lady Receptionist was very pleasant and helpful and the other staff we met were friendly enough. Would definitely stay again if ever in Aberystwyth and would recommend it even though I admit I didn't fancy the look of some of the other hotels along the front - some looked decidedly dodgey or very old-fashioned!
