    Historical Traveler Reviews Gwesty'r Marine Hotel Aberystwyth

    Awful service

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    Group Bookings

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Wonderful stay

    from

    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

    from

    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!!

    from

    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!!

    from

    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.

    ... in a yurt, I was a tad disappointed. Okay, more than a tad, but I hid it well. Annie, from whom we’re renting the establishment, explained that a woman in the area was selling Mongolian yurts. She’d brought this one back complete with the original felt tenting, only to discover that felt does not hold up so well in Welsh rain. So Annie, buying the frame, specially commissioned canvas tenting to replace the felt. The result is that on ...

    ... Bs destroyed or damaged during last January's tremendous storms (that can be viewed on YouTube.)

    Today we are back at the National Archives. Apparently a 15 minute walk up the hill will provide more views of the town and some much needed exercise. WE have to stop eating those chips that are everywhere! (Well, Rhe might give in and indulge in some more.)

    The weather is holding out so far and we'll make the most of it in the evening.

    ... the right way, after turning a corner, we attracted the attention of a large black BULL who decided he was bored and started to trot after us. "just around the bend and we'll be safe" was all I could think of. I figured once he couldn't see us, his tiny beef brain would forget what he was doing and go back to chewing his cud. around the bend and what do I see? right at the gate, 50 black cows staring at me. with ...

    I just had a run in with a pack of cows. shorthorns to be specific. they've been eyeing us jealously for the last 3 days as we walked past. they don't like that the dog is getting so much attention (stick) and finally decided to do something about it. one started trotting over while giving the imagonnagoreyou stare and the next thing I knew four more were moving to cut us off. it almost prompted me to run. but ...

So we duly did and were rewarded with special passes which gave us free entry into grandstands, free food and drinks at the Pavillion and the use of all their facilities. So we felt very privileged to have a badge saving 'International Visitor' as we walked around! There were so many interesting things to see and we wandered around the stands for hours. Bought ...
