We first headed to the Isle of Anglessey. We crossed the Menai Strait and went over the Thomas Stephenson Bridge. We really didn't stay in Anglessey long. * Bryn Celli Ddu: burial chamber. Grass mound that is prehistoric. Kind of neat, wouldn't see again. * Llanfair PG (llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwl lllantysiliogogogoch): town with the …
... day trip to Wales. On our first day, we went to Cardiff and visited both the Welsh National Assembly and The Dr. Who Experience. I have never actually seen Dr. Who but watching some of the others' excitement absolutely made my day. After that we checked into a super cute little bed and breakfast in Brecon and then went to dinner as a group. My drinking partner in crime and I successfully split three pitchers of cosmopolitans/daiquiris between the two of us so that ...
... Laws had amused everybody in his set by bringing a dozen or so blokes on stage (yes, I was one) and instigating a spooning war so Matt asked us all to come back, removed his t-shirt and then launched himself into the air. We caught him and transported him across the path, over the fence and into the field. Hopefully it made his day.
Last year, Isy Suttie and Gavin Osborne performed Mach Attack. We didn’t go because we’d already booked something for the ...
... on the Saturday morning before the festival because someone had returned them, so we grabbed them fast.
We were dropped off at the Bowling Club with time to spare but there was already a queue. Last year there had been spare seats, including most of the front row, for both performances but there wasn’t much chance of that recurring today. Even so and despite the fact that the room was almost full when we were admitted we still managed to get second row seats.
... thewaenbrewery.co.uk These nice people run some of the temporary bars for the festival and have a long association with it. They produce several fine beers and a lager (called Llager) and I was pleased to be able to try some of their stuff again, having apparently missed the porter in Shrewsbury 10 days previously. It’s very good and they sell quite a lot, I think. It’s possible that some of it was being used to fuel the excitement in the main hall.

Historical Traveler Reviews Gwesty'r Marine Hotel Aberystwyth
After driving for 3 hours non-stop with my elderly mother I arrived at the Marine hotel only to find that the reception had been closed and no one around who could check us in. We'd paid for an evening meal which no one was prepared to serve us, only after a certain amount of complaining did some one attend to us and arrange for some food to be made up for us.
The standards of the rooms we had was not acceptable and for a top hotel of a sea side town the standards we're awful.
We'd paid for a christmas package and by the end of the weekend I felt I could get better service at McDonalds.
Warm and Friendly
We stayed at the Marine Hotel Sept 2004 and were pleased with the friendly welcome. The Hotel is in a great position and our room had a bay window with sea views. Although the room and bathroom were small, they were clean. The staff were very helpful and the buffet breakfast was very good.
The Marine Student Hall of Residence
Having been a student at Aberystwyth for many years I decided to return to the idyllic seaside town. Unfortunately my girlfriend and I decided to stay at the Marine Hotel. We were given a double room on the ground floor of an annex adjacent to the main hotel. For the extortionate price of £80 a night we had the pleasure of sharing a building housing numerous loud hen/stag parties. In addition, the decor resembled a poorly maintained student's halls of residence. Furthermore there was no light in the bathroom accompanied by no hot water. Whilst we couldn't find a phone in the room to complain we did discover a pair of safety goggles and gardening gloves beneath the bed!
Hotel staff were pleasant, seemed to care about their appearance and the appearance of their hotel. Went with a large group, stayed in a 5 bed room in the annex building a few doors down. The room was not made to our requirements, there was a bed unmade and a bed that had been slept in by a previous tenant! We were disgruntled to say the least, as we had been travelling all day. Never the less the bed was done asap and when we got back to the room it had been made up as we expected.
Fantastic Family Hotel very warm welcome
Had a wonderfull stay with my friends in the marine was visiting family and friends in the Aberystwyth area, fantastic rates. Food Fantastic especially the sunday Lunch. Would recommend to friends and family.
Me and my wife came had a wonderful stay at the Marine Hotel. The staff, food, bedroom and facilities were excellent. We will certainly return.
Cold comfort hotel
On a cold winter's evening, this place was particularly cheerless. The seafront sash windows didn't shut properly so the curtains flapped in the icy wind - which may explain why they were hanging off their runners. The plaster was falling off the ceiling. The bed was narrow.
The restaurant was closed. For £50 I expected something rather better.
Best breakfast in wales!!
we stayed at The Marine last month and had a wonderful stay, we had a beautiful four poster room with a stunning sea view. The breakfast is worth staying for in itself - full english buffet with plenty of choice especially for my husband who is vegetarian.
Marine Hotel Aberystwyth, Wales HORRIBLE!!
Stayed at the Marine Hotel in early Sept. We had been offered a 2 bedroom suite sharing one bath for my husband, mother, and myself. The bedroom for my mother had 2 beds that swayed back and forth. The main room had a king bed, but on a slope. My husband held on to one side, and I kept my foot on the floor all night. There was a twin bed at the foot of the King, a loveseat, armoire, t.v. cabinet, table and 2 chairs all crammed in the room. It was dirty,,,blonde hair all over the oveseat... carpet tiles coming up in the bathroom. This is certainly not what their web site advetises.
