Pleasant staff, good breakfast and generally clean all round but expensive for what and where it is. Bedroom had obviously recently been given the once over (flat screen TV and newly decorated bathroom) but pictureless walls, high ceilings and dreary old green carpets contributed to a cheerless feel. Sea view is OK but If you like window open at night expect to be woken by drunken students as they make their way home. This is an old-school seafront hotel trying hard to keep its head above the grot of Aberystwyth - a town we shall not return to as it is so awful. I feel slightly sorry for the Richmond as it sits on a heritage promenade which is a mix of student digs, other hotels and boarded up buildings. Town council should be ashamed.
