The Starling Cloud is exactly what Aberystwyth has needed for several years! Something a little different to the (dare I say) slightly old fashioned vibe of the established hotels.
It's cheap, comfortable, clean and quiet. Basically it's a Premier Inn standard room for a really good price. If you need a bolt hole for the night while visiting a student (as we were!) then it is perfect.
The only thing to note is that the reception desk is in the bar in a separate building across the car park - the building with the hotel rooms can only be accessed with a swipe card once you've checked in.
I can't comment on breakfast as we overslept and didn't make it! I think that speaks for the comfort of the bed though!
We are actually returning this week (two separate trips across Wales in one week, must be mad), and this time we're planning to try the breakfast!
