    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.

    ... stopped moving and there is nothing to do but to look back we can see that we have 141 days of the trip of a lifetime, with memories and experiences that will stay with us forever and hopefully we have shown our girls how important it is to follow a dream and that there is nothing you can't do if you really want to do it. So this is the end of The Simpson's European Tour 2014 and now we can begin the planning for our next dream ...

    ... of her time quivering with excitement. I have decided I really like LLety.

    I have had a quiet time on this site which is fairly empty
    and there have been very few people to talk to. I have walked three stretches
    of the coastal footpath and I devised a lovely walk inland which took in hills,
    wooded valleys and only a bit of cliff top. I visited Cardigan which turned out
    to be even smaller than ...

    ... 8217;t very near the sea. I was offered a pitch with "really good views" and was disappointed when I found that all I could see was rolling countryside, fairly well wooded and partially shrouded in low cloud. I think that staying on sites with magnificent sea views for the last couple of weeks has spoilt me. This site is isolated but has one or two really nice footpaths that pass down deep valleys with fast flowing ...

    Saturday morning, I'm up early and longing to walk along the beach. The town is quiet, not even the fishermen are up yet and the estuary is calm at high tide. The teenagers have long gone from the jetty where last night they waited their turn to leap into the cold seawater below and for now the lobster pots are ...
