“Pleasant stay”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

This was my first experience of the Marston's Inn chain and after staying there I will gladly give the other hotels in this chain a try.

It is a newly built hotel which is separate from the main pub / restaurant building. It was a calm place to stay where we had a good night's sleep with no disturbances. The location is good with plenty of free parking spaces and the town centre and station just a short walk away.

As we stayed in the middle of a heatwave we really appreciated the air conditioning. It was also possible to open the window if we had wanted to. The room was clean and small touches such as free WiFi, bottles of water and breakfast included in the reasonable price added to the good feelings we had about the stay.

Check-in takes place at the pub where we also had dinner which was OK, good "pub food" served by friendly staff. As hotel guests we also got a discount on our meal which was a welcome surprise (not sure if that is a permanent offer).

My one disappointment was the breakfast, its probably fine if you like a cooked breakfast but the continental selection was extremely limited and it would have been easier if I could toast my own bread rather than have to order it.

Excellent food with realy good service from friendly staff in a very relaxed atmosphere.Makes it a good place to go for lunch. This is my 3rd visit and will definately be going again. A nice place to go when shopping in Aberystwyth so we dont have to cook in the evening

Modern and clean room with really comfortable bed probably along the lines if a Premier Inn hotel. Food was good for both evening meal and breakfast. Only downside was the street light right outside the window but I woukd stay here again happily.

We stayed for 4 nights and were very pleased with our choice. Having been recently built, the rooms are well furnished and very comfortable, giving a great nights sleep. The Marstons pub is just across the car park and we enjoyed eating there every evening. The pub is understandly busy but the staff do their best to give residents priority for a table. Speaking of the staff, they are all incredibly friendly, polite and service standards are excellent.

Location is excellent and you are just a short drive from beautiful forest and mountain walks. Hafod Forest, which has a deep gorge through the middle, is well worth a visit.
