Best breakfast in Aberystwyth!!!
Overall it was a great stay at the Glengower hotel. The staff were really friendly and very welcoming on arrival. The room was well fitted and, the description given on the room was correct to what was stated. There were minor cleanliness issues within the room, none of which caused us concern. The hotel is well situated on the sea front and is in walking distance of the town centre and the pier. The bar within the hotel has lots of variety and again the staff behind the bar were friendly and answered any questions which we had. For someone that loves a fried breakfast, the full Welsh and Vegetarian breakfast is up there as one of the best I have had. Lots of flavour, quality produce and cooked to perfection. The staff regularly checked whether we would like a refill on our drinks and whether we wanted any more toast or sauces. I would definitely recommend the hotel for couples or families to stay, and I definitely will be going back to the hotel. Thank you to the wonderful staff at the hote for being so friendly
