An excellent family run hotel. It is within ten minutes walking distance of the Millennium Stadium and Cardiff City Centre. The rooms are warm and comfortable with a high standard of cleanliness. The en-suite is very good and is also spotless. Where the Elgano Hotels stand out from the rest is the friendliness of the welcome, which was maintained throughout... More

This hotel was booked for us as part of a package when we booked to go to Cardiff to watch Wales v England. We weren't sure what to expect and actually expected it to be a bit grim but wow what a surprise. The staff were extremely helpful, room was spotless and breakfast of a good standard. We were able...

stayed with friends for a weekend. The staff at the elgano are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is lovely. The rooms were fine and the location excellent. A criticism I would have is the 5% charge for card payments which is excessive but we paid by cash!

Although we had arrived hours earlier than the check in time we received a really warm welcome. A parking space was reserved (in a small secure parking area and you will need to be able to reverse well). Our rooms happened to be ready and we were settled in by 8.30 am. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff... More

Good location and extremely clean hotel in this Victorian (?) property. Dealt with the same female staff member at check in, breakfast and check out who was cheerful, courteous and very helpful. Ensuite bedroom was of standard expected - stayed on top floor accessed by stairs. Breakfast involved a good choice of food. Hygiene rating 5 out of 5. I... More

Stayed for a night, nice and clean. Free wifi and close to town so good for business stays. I see earlier points about triple rooms being three beds squeezed in! Shower/bathroom light is automatic which is interesting when it turns off mid shower! Good breakfast and super friendly host. Recommended but not ideal for a romantic break!

The Elgano is a great value place to stay. Very clean, superb showers and good location for central Cardiff. Yes, it's not luxury but when you consider what you get for the price you can't complain. Free secure parking, free fast wifi, excellent cooked breakfast, super friendly staff and all a short walk into town. The owner/manager was very accommodating... More

I don't think so. Three of us stayed here in a triple room. There were three single beds in a (barely) double room. There was a third bed 'shoved' at the end of the other two single beds. It was a complete fire hazard. The only reason we even contemplated this place was because every other hotel in Cardiff was... More
