“Excelent view”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Excellent view, clean and nice rooms, very friendly staff. Very good central location.
There is no parking beside the hotel- please, ask the staff for advice. And, the restorant may be booked- so book it in advance.

Stayed for one night in the small single room in April, on business.

Agree with all positive comments here. Very classy hotel, tastefully done.

I was not totally blown away by the breakfast, but it was okay.

One criticism: the coffee is terrible. Instant in the rooms, and something not very tasty at breakfast!

When I originally booked the person I dealt with on the phone was friendly and helpful. When I checked the was a friendly welcome, the room had lovely decor, quite modern stylish and Welsh in taste - there was art on the wall that looked local, local looking materials such as slate etc used. Bathroom had a lovely walk in shower. Breakfast, which was included in the room cost was tasty and had good service in the little restaurant downstairs with a view of the sea.

Gwesty Cymru is a fantastic small (8-room) hotel across from a seasie boardwalk in Aberystwyth, Wales (mid-Wales), a lively town with an old castle, a university and the Welsh National Library and several great restaurants. Our hosts were attentive, the rooms are delightfully modern, with amazing upscale design features and artwork. The hotel has its own restaurant on the ground floor which is in itself an attraction for guests and for the locals. The university wines and dines candidates it is recruiting at the hotel. Walking distance 93-4 blocks) from the rail station downtown. The downtown itself is a great walking around area -- it even features a small Waterstone's bookstore and a number of lively coffee shops.

Stayed in a very large room with a very large bed and bathroom. Gwesty Cymru has been furnished to they highest of standards - it is on the pricey side for aber, but well worth it. Breakfast is excellent and all the staff are very helpful. My only gripe would be the lack of parking anywhere in aber but having studied in aber 5 years ago i knew this, and the hotel does offer parking at an additional charge.

Room Tip: Try for a sea view - the aberystwyth sunsets are fantastic.

It has the well-deserved top-spot in Aberystwyth hotel-land. Well-run, clean and well-appointed about sums it up. It also has a rather good restaurant that goes with it. We had a spacious room and large bathroom on the second floor. It also came with a sea view which must be even more spectacular in a Force 8 gale in January. The only thing I would caution about is the flights of stairs to be negotiated. I would not like to have a dodgy knee whilst living here but that's a small thing. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
