Stayed here on business. Location was great for Cardiff and surrounding area. Rooms could possibly have been a bit better. Really clean but a little bit dated. Also squeaky floorboards which meant I could hear my colleague in the next room crashing about like a baby rhino! Having said that, I had a really good sleep and fab breakfast the... More

We only stayed here for one night but everyone was friendly and helpful. We were visiting family and didn't actually get to book in until midnight but were greeted with a smile and our key card was all ready for us. Had a bit of difficulty with the key but it worked eventually. Breakfast was lovely and our order was... More

We stayed here before riding Bike Park Wales. The room was lovely, very good value for money. Bikes were stored securely for us. The breakfast was great. The carvery in the evening was even better. We WILL definitely be staying here again when we return.

The carvery in the Bessemer is one of the best around. Food is well cooked plenty to choose from and good value for money. Gareth is always pleasant and polite when carving your meat. Would recommend a visit for Sunday lunch or a meal during the week.

Just back from the 14:30hrs booking with the Family for Mam & dad's Golden Wedding anniversary.. As Always, Fantastic Food with Great service... Can't Recommend this place Highly Enough! Been there quite a few times and will continue going to The Bessemer too...

Stayed 3 nights. Nothing special, but not bad either: clean cosy room and hot water is enough. Breakfast was a bit of disappointment with limited choice. Although the freshly cooked eggs/beans etc made up for i suppose. Some fruit, croissants, pancakes might be nice (ie. continental). The dinner was as bland as can be, and overpriced (no herbs/spices on the... More

we as a local business often book rooms for our customers in this hotel but never again. Most hotels adopt a 24 hr cancellation policy which is acceptable but considering that we made the booking at 10am in the morning and due to our customer having problems travelling from London we cancelled the booking at 2.30pm but we were still...

We were visiting nearby attractions next day so Bessemer was very handy and well located. Rooms clean and spacious with excellent wifi. Nice bathroom Breakfast nice and freshly cooked. We did not have evening meal in the hotel (our choice) - we used the newish Weatherspoons in MT. Good price and would recommend.

Busy restaurant with lots of birthday parties, but good service, not too noisy, and privacy available in a booth if you were a solo traveller, as I was. Good carvery, unpretentious food. Decent clean bedroom. Breakfast fair but no muesli, you had to ask for fruit specially and the choice wasn't that wide. The yogurt was very plastic-tasting and I... More
