      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.

      A fun weekend in New Quay to end the season. Halloween events on Friday, fireworks on the pier and the urban downhill event. The Main Street is closed for the brave cyclists to career from a field above the car park,weaving their way down narrow alleys,down steps and over ramps and all this in under 2 minutes! For once the dolphins were taking second place and the fishermen went on with their daily tasks oblivious to the goings on on ...

      ... with nowhere to turn around. After 2 hours and an 80 mile detour, (not all bad as we came across Tal Y Llyn and a stunning lake that appeared out of nowhere), were back on track and came into Barmouth around 4ish. Jayne had located a small caravan club certified location and called to see if they had room for us. Yep we're in. Its not much and we thought a little overpriced, that was until we had set up and turned to notice the view. Blimey thats worth it. ...

Another of those roads, twisty and turny with a tunnel of trees overhead and a river running alongside on the valley floor. Stunning. The only thing that distracted us was the sat nav telling us to turn left towards dog willy! Actually spelt Dolg Willi but oh how we laughed!!! Just through Aberaeron we came across a ...
