We have booked room nr5 for two nights. This is a beautiful room with a small sea view. Host Hilary was very nice and helpful. The location is near town center and constitution hill. The breakfast was fine. If we coime back to Aberysthwyth we would not hesitate to come back to Bodalwyn Guest House. Grüße aus Österreich.

A really friendly and welcoming guest house in a beautiful part of Wales. I spent one night here and we impressed with the polite and professional service I received throughout. The owners clearly take pride in there work and it shows. Would happily stay again.

Hilary and Clive are always friendly, charming and nothing is too much trouble. There are little touches which we appreciate- mugs for tea, biscuits, comfy chairs, good shower, big towels and choccies on the pillow! Breakfast was delicious and a good choice. Edwardian (No.3) spacious room appreciated after a day outdoors. Fully recommended.

Really nice guest house with period decor/fireplace within the room. Exceptionally clean, friendly owners, great breakfasts. Located really near the Cliffe Railway and 3 minutes from the promenade. Would definitely recommend.
