My friend and I had two double rooms here for one night on 23rd October. The owner was very friendly and helpful on check in. My room 8 was along a cold corridor. It is a fairly small double room. Dreadful creaky floorboards and a noisy bed head. It had a nice alcove a huge empty built in wardrobe. No... More

We stayed on a Sunday due to a gig in the town. Rooms were nice and clean, and the price was very reasonable. Hotel staff was friendly and welcoming and there was free wifi. However, be warned, the place is a little hard to find if you are not local because it is in a residential area. It was a... More

It was an inexpensive place to stay, however it was very poor value for money. We received a very warm welcome and then it went downhill, the first floor corridor, on which the bedrooms are located, stinks of cigarette smoke. The bedroom was ridiculously small and only one pillow each, a bare lightbulb and a general grubbiness. There was an... More

Just come back from spending 2 nights at Monnington Lodge. New manager and all his staff were very friendly and helpful. Food good. This lodge is being redecorated. We would stay again if in the area. Very good value for money. If you are in a room above bar it can be a bit noisy until bar closes. We were... More

Firstly it took us ages to find this hotel so the directions weren't very well explained. Then we were advised that the restaurant wasn't really open but would consider throwing something together for us if we really needed it. The room was the smallest I've been in throughout our travels. and really did need to be freshened up. The bed... More

Hotel requested money when we had arrived , we were not happy about that but has no option as One Direction where in Cardiff and all other hotels were booked or extremely overpriced. The bar and restaurant were closed they had no gas and were cooking with limited facilities. We were concerned about breakfast. We were told no one was... More

The room was very small for a double, a single would have been better.and the floor boards creaked like mad, very annoying !!!! The bathroom still has a shower curtain the disdain of a traveller im sure!! And the grout was dirty and mouldy.... More
