We stayed for two nights (Fri-Sat in October). Very clean, well equipped and comfortable en-suite room with bath. Surprisingly spacious inside the building with separate extra shower room and toilets accessible to all, plus extra TV lounge on ground floor and spacious breakfast room. Good breakfast selection. Friendly owner and good communication prior to arrival. Very close to town centre... More

Stayed for 1 night. My room was upgraded to a bigger one, which was nice, but not having en suite (which I knew about) and not having a shower even on the same floor was not so good. Room was clean, comfortable and well maintained, shared toilet too far away, And shower on floor below. They don't accept card payments... More

One of the nicest guest houses I have stayed in. Rooms very clean and comfortable and a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning. The guest house is close to the sea and the centre of Aberystwyth. Louis the proprietor was an excellent host (even though he supports the wrong football team!!!). My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our... More

Extremely clean.comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast with choice of full Welsh, continental ,vegan or whatever you want. The bed was comfortable, there is a nice lounge ,for a guest house it is on a par with many a small hotel I have stayed in regarding facilities.

What can I say about the Glyn Garth? Everything about it is fabulous, especially Louis the proprietor who is so friendly and welcoming it feels like home from home! We have been visiting at least once a year now for more than 10 years and intend to continue this for many more years which I think speaks for itself! Thank... More

We stayed at the Glyn Barth one night over the weekend. It's situated very close to the sea front ( I could just see the sea from my window) & we managed to park right outside. The owner was lovely and very welcoming. My single room was perfect and spotlessly clean. Breakfast in the morning was lovely and we were... More

Our friend in Aberystwyth booked the Glen-Garth for us. It turned out to be well-located on the coast near the old Aberystwyth Castle and within a short walk to the centre of town. The B&B owner was very friendly and decidedly Welsh. When my wife accidentally said that she liked a full "English" breakfast, he immediately corrected it to "Welsh"... More

Glyn Garth Guest House is probably the best B & B in Wales, what a pity it is in Aberystwyth. Everything about Glyn Garth is superb, from the welcome to the spotless rooms & to the excellent food.

Enjoyed a weekend here in Aberystwyth. Good location, just a short walk from the sea front. Easy to get to from the railway station. Did feel it was a bit overpriced considering we had 'shared' shower and bathroom facilities. Probably the most we have ever paid for a B&B without en suite. Good breakfast. Friendly hosts. Be aware that this... More
