      excellent base for exploring the area

      I stayed there with my girlfriend for 2 nights in May. The b and b is located on the south beach, just a 5 minute walk away from all the main bars and noisy students. From our double, en suite room we had a sea view. It was amazing. We could also see the harbour, the ice cream hut opposite and parts of the castle. The sounds of the waves splashing up on the beach at night made us fall asleep. Parking is quite easy, you can just park anywhere along the sea front free of charge though private parking is available if needed at a charge of £2 per night. It is not a wheelchair friendly place though. Upon arrival we were given a a combination number to the front door to let ourselves in, something which I found much better than having to take a key everywhere with you. Our room was up 2 flights of stairs but we're young and were not bothered by that but the more elderly of guests may find it a bit of a struggle. Our room had tea and coffee making facilities, tv and dvd player with a choice of dvd's to watch. Some sweets and chocolates, the complimentary bible, a double bed, lovely shower and 2 comfy seats to sit on and admire the sea view. On the ground floor you can watch Tv, play games, help yourselves to some free maps of the area and this is also where breakfast is served. We had a traditional welsh breakfast each which was bacon, sausage, fried/scrambled eggs, tomatoes and mushrooms. A vegetarian option is also available as well as a continental breakfast. It was super yummy and was washed down quite nicely with a pot of tea. Our room cost us £38 per person per night which compared to some of the other b and b's located in the centre of the town was quite reasonable. The owner, John, is a very friendly guy who will happily answer any questions or queries you may have. He made our stay very welcome. We would happily return there again in the future and would recommend it to anyone.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I stayed overnight in this 3 star B&B with my boyfriend in April, and although it rained the room made up for it. The only disadvatage was that it was up three flights of stairs but the view made it worthwhile. From the window the entire coast can be seen (including the ice-cream hut just 30 feet from the door!) You can clearly see the beautiful harbour and majestic castle of Aberystwyth, with even better views at night. Situated on the sea front, it is ideal for quick access to the sandy part of the beach, and is only 2 mins from the town centre (which contains well over a dozen pubs/clubs)and 5 mins from the pier. The room itself was brilliant - a small jar with Celebrations chocolates welcomes you to the room, which includes a teasmaid with a selection of hot beverages (brand names), free welsh spring water, cups, spoons etc to enjoy whilst watching the supplied colour TV. Also in the drawer of the dresser you will find enough information on the local area to plan a months worth of daytrips, plus local transportation information to allow you to get there. En-suite is £5 per person extra but more than worth it as a very large clean bathroom with hot flowing water and bubble bath etc is provided, including a very deep bath and a bidet. provided in the morning is a breakfast of cereal, toast and a fry up (sausage, bacon, egg etc) with hot and cold drinks, served with a sea view. The staff were warm and friendly and i would definatley return here as the acommodation was quite cheap (£20 a head) and very comfortable.
