Back again

A now familiar welcome at the George Borrow Hotel greeted us upon arrival, this is my third visit in the last few months as I go to and from the University in Aberystwyth.

The hotel is still a little cluttered with random stuff dotted around the hotel, which while not getting in the way, does make the hotel look a little untidy. The room we had on this occasion was much smaller than previous rooms but for some reason was more expensive, the en-suite was very small and difficult to use, my 6ft plus son has difficulty in the shower, and both of us had to leave the door open in order to achieve adequate space after shower drying. That aside, the food was again excellent, a pleasant evening was spent in the bar, and we are beginning to be greeted like old friends. It won't be long before I am there again.

Uni pick up

Another warm welcome from those at George Borrow Hotel, will most likely be a regular visitor to this hotel.

The food was very good and the atmosphere in the bar both pre and post dinner was brilliant. My only gripe this time was that we were generally hurried in to dinner, but a minor point, and won't put me off staying again.
