The hotel is a lodge type building seperate but adjacent to a marstons pub, it is newly built and therefore is clean and in good order, everything worked well, air con was a godsend, and a good (LG) TV, shower and bath was very good, The bedside shelves are a bit small, no comfy chair and no drawers for clothes so had to live out of a suitcase, not really good enough, however bed very comfortable and a good nights sleep was had on both nights of our stay. Check in is at the pub which was a bit confusing to start with but once found was efficient and friendly. we had a meal on the first night which was well cooked and came out quickly. Breakfast was ok but lacked the choice of some equally priced hotels, a selection of cereals, apple or orange juice and a few yoghurts, croisants. As previous reveiwers have commented, the coffee cups at breakfast are not only filled to the brim so not allowing for milk to be added but also you could have stood the spoon up in it as it was so strong, despite it being almost undrinkable we were not offered any refills and only one slice of toast, would expected a little more 'service', not a good start to the day, Breakfast staff seemed disorganised, there where plenty of staff but on the first morning we were asked by three different waitresses if we had placed our order, they didnt seem to have allocated areas.
Overall a good hotel, time will tell if it stays that way, It is expensive for what it is, but that said I found Aberystwyth on the pricey side anyway, maybe because of the university. would consider staying again, but would depend if I could get a better deal elsewhere.
