About The Starling Cloud

The Starling Cloud is found on the main road into Aberystwyth, just a 13-minute walk away from the centre of this historic market town and not much further to the Royal Pier and Aberystwyth Castle. The lodge is built alongside a Marston pub, meaning pub meals and freshly tapped beer will never be far away for guests.

The 27 rooms in this lodge all have free Wi-Fi, en-suite bathrooms, digital TVs with Freeview channels, hair dryers, and tea & coffee facilities.

Indoor and outdoor children’s play areas are available, as is free, on-site parking.

Breakfasts are also served at The Starling Cloud, and further drinking and dining options can be found downtown.

Aberystwyth University and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre are both found within one mile, and the Snowdonia National Park can be reached in just over half an hour’s driving.

Positive Reviews

Handy to University, Aberystwyth.

Guests found The Starling Cloud to be convenient for everything in Aberystwyth, including the train station, beach and town, and also good for visiting offspring at Aberystwyth University.

Good value rooms and staff.

You will find the clean, quiet and comfortable rooms to offer good value for money and the friendly hotel and bar staff with win you over with fantastic service.

Restaurant dishes delicious.

The breakfast buffet has been deemed worthy, and the restaurant food great, reasonably priced and offering a good menu selection.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast service can be slow.

Some guests were of the opinion the restaurant was understaffed during the breakfast shift, due to the slow service and meal preparation, and some breakfast items not being topped up.

Rooms could use an armchair.

It was not a big issue, but a few guests wished for an armchair to make their rooms that little bit more homely.

Reception in different building.

Again, not many people were too bothered, but The Starling Cloud’s reception is in another building than the accommodation, presumably only a problem during Welsh rain squalls.
