“Delicious food”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

I went to the Plas Antaron Hotel for a Christmas dinner while working with Aberystwyth Arthritis Care. The environment was pleasant and the food was delicious, well presented and I got drawn into how it looked before I even got to taste it. It smelled terrific.Thankfully it tasted even better than the visual experience. The turkey was tender, succulent, it had a subtle flavour and smelled beautiful. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the texture matched how good it all looked. The gravy was plentiful and the staff were very nice to us all. For the first time ever I found turkey interesting and very tasty without being over powering with its flavour. The pudding was a large ramekin sized Christmas pudding which you were encouraged to dress to your liking with a glass pot of brandy sauce and another ramekin of rum and raisin ice cream to contrast the textures and temperatures and great taste of the Christmas pudding. Well done to the chef John Gifford at the Plas Antaron Hotel for this excellence. I, and my fellow diners loved it!

Stayed overnight as travelling north the following day. Arrived just after 6 on weekday evening. Plenty of parking and very easy to find, on the main road into Aberystwyth from the south.
Quiet, and gentleman who welcomed me was friendly. The room (room 5 I think) was big enough for one and had good en suite. The decor in the room and throughout the hotel is slightly dated and a but worn in places but everything works so can't complain for a business trip. Free wifi and room facilities include tea and television.
Breakfast is an issue as mentioned by others. Only available 8-9 which is not much use if you have to leave before 8. I had mentioned this and was offered a buffet type breakfast (cereals and fruit) at £5 off the room price, but due to miscommunication didn't get breakfast as no milk was left out. But as mentioned, crossed wires.
In short, great budget stay. Not ideal for business trip due to late breakfast and I guess only an hour slot could be a pain for holiday stays also. But good clean room and good location / parking etc. At £50 pppn not bad compared to other hotels in Aber.

Stayed for one night while in the area with my sister. We both had double rooms. I had room 7 which was large in size with a comfortable double bed and en suite facilities. The breakfast is served between 8 & 9 with your room number on your table. Plenty to eat, cereal,fruit,juice and a full English with toast. Wifi throughout the hotel (reception give you the code to access it). My sister had room 8 which from the outside looked like a cupboard with a half sized door but the room was only slightly smaller than mine. Friendly staff. Hotel has plenty of parking and is located about 5 mins drive from the town centre and sea front. Value for money and would use the hotel again if in the area

stayed here for a 2 nite break at the end of August - we had room no 10 which was light and airy and clean. Breakfast was early but this encouraged you to get up and get out and do things - the breakfast itself was delicious - all freshly cooked and super tasty. The waitress was very friendly and service was quick. The hotel may lack a bit of the personal showing to your room and a bit about where you are etc but all in all this was a good value for money place to stay and we would definately stay here again.

We are two couples travelling and we arrived at the Plas Antaron after a long drive. We were looking forward to a drink and a meal but was told that the bar and restaurant would not be opening tonight which was a Saturday night. So we asked where could we get a drink and a meal and were told to just drive into the town and we would find numerous places. We asked for a recommendation and was told to drive into town there was heaps of places. This welcome put us off the Hotel. The rooms are clean and ideal, just the unwelcoming person at the front desk. In the morning the tables were arranged with your room number for breakfast, do not sit at the wrong table, they are very regimented. If you are looking for a welcoming place with friendly staff this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a clean room, nice bed and stick to rules and regulations, this is an ideal place. Unfortunately we were looking for a friendly place that we could enjoy a drink and meal and feel welcome and find out about the town but with this welcome we left the next morning and will not be returning. Go some where else where you will be welcome and not feel like they are doing you a favour by renting you a room for the night. There are a lot better hotels that will make you welcome.
