I spent many happy years in Aberystwyth, visiting grandparents and then university, and try to return as often as possible. Our visit last year for St David's day was not a success largely due to the hotel, and therefore I was reluctant to stay anywhere I didn't know. How wrong could I be! The guest house has only recently re-opened,... More

Or is there another explanation for the fact that full payment was taken from my credit card 12 DAYS before our stay when we were on a 48 hour no-charge cancellation deal? Might explain why 5 teabags were supposed to last 2 people 48 hours too. Both members of staff we met were friendly - and the sea view was... More

It has been recently given a fresh lick of paint and whilst the accommodation is basic it was clean and the service was friendly. The building has previously served as student halls and whilst its been given a bit of a spruce up you can still see... More

This place has a shower that doesn't work, horrible breakfast and curtains that do not close. If you fancy getting up at 4.30am in the Summer, stay here. They also charged me for two nights, when I only stayed for one. I called them five times, emailed and wrote them a letter and they still haven't sorted the problem, or... More

Myself and my partner visit Aberystwyth on a fairly regular basis and have always stayed at the Celtic Bay. We've always been pleased with the service and cleanliness of the rooms, and have never looked to stay anywhere else. This unfortunately, is no longer the case. We were given a seafront double which we were thrilled about...until we stepped in... More

I stayed at this B&B in March and May 2011, both times we had great service, beautiful breakfasts and friendly staff. A sea view room is obvioulsy nicer than one at the back of the building, but there is more noise at the front, being on a busy sea front. The rooms were small but VERY clean and tidy, which... More
