We booked our room in March as the Vale of Rheidol Railway was having a special weekend and also we knew that parking in Aberystwyth is at a premium. On arrival our greeting was formal and business like. The room was a good size with a sea view. The bathroom was a good size with a shower (no bath) and well equipped.
Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt etc.
We booked an evening meal for the Saturday evening. Again the meal was excellent but we were surprised that the restaurant was not full to the rafters. We assume that the restaurant is only open to guests but it could be enjoyed by others who are not staying there. Our only real disappointment was that the menu on the hotel website was not what was on offer but that aside the choices on offer were good.
All of the waitress staff were great and we thank them for the 'Welsh' lesson. We would also like to make a special mention of Jo. She was an absolute sweetheart, never stopped smiling and is a credit to the hotel.
Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend the Richmond to other travellers.
