The rooms have old world charm. Love the bay windows overlloking the ocean and the sound of braeking waves.

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.
The room was cramped 3 single beds and a double in one place is a lot, especially for the price of the room, we expected something bigger. You could hardly move between the beds - buks would have been a better option. Wasn't keen that a pair of us had to share a bed, we don't know each other that well and it was a little awkward, ended up sleeping on the floor!
On the positive side the hotel was in an excellent position and a wonderful view - the bar's open till 3am!
The breakfast in the morning was definitly worth getting up for- the amount of food was fantastic, as it was self service there was nothing on the plate that you didn't like!
i would recommend staying the in main hotel as it seemed of much better quality, and smaller parties per room would also be a good idea, no more than 3!
All in all made a good weekend!
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.

Today was the last day for the season that the Talyllyn Railway in Tywyn Wales was running. It was a definite "todo" on Tristan's list as this railway was essentially the inspiration for the Thomas the Tank Engine stories.
Was it meantioned that Jessamy had christened the car as "Chester"? We were all up early, had breakfast in the Bath …
... s actually the Monk's Bridge. Which makes way more sense, since it's built by monks!
It has a steep staircase going down right next to a waterfall, at the bottom you hop over the little river on a makeshift bridge and up again the other side. We were a little worried at this point if it wouldn't be too much for Alexis, since she already started nagging halfway to the burial chamber. (She actually threw a fit and lay down in ...
... was filled with sparkling conversation. Aarons parent had to drive to Aarons nan's house which was down the road. while Aaron, myself, his nan and sister walked back to the house. now some people might think its cruel to make a 82 year old walk home after having two large red wines while she's currently taking antibiotics. but we did ask if she wanted a lift. to which we got the response, 'no I'm full,' this ...
... So I'm trying to draw on the positives of Aaron coming home. Aaron can meet up with his family (the longest he has spent away is a month), pick up the winter clothes, pick up his new glasses, have check up with dentist and opticians. It will also give me time to look for a job.
I'm looking forward now to celebrating Aarons birthday tomorrow and getting to the airport and finally get the excited butterflies.
... rolling countryside, and very difficult to tell which country you're in. If anything, the valleys are wider in England, but otherwise not much difference.Also, in Wales we hardly saw any cattle; nearly all sheep. Where in England it seems more 50/50 of each. Wales of course has mostly Welsh people too, and England has more pigs.
We're now well and truly back in England. Just went past ...
