My son and three friends travelled to Cardiff for a concert, which was regrettably cancelled. They stayed at this lovely hotel for 1 night. Upon their arrival they were warmly greeted and made very welcome. The boys were accommodated in a family room which was very comfortable and clean and a fantastic shower apparently! Hazel even gave them a lift... More

We parked our car in the small parking lot on the hotel property and were immediately greeted by a very nice man. He welcomed us and carried our luggage to the room. The room was in a seperate building from the main house called the carriage house. We had a nice, quiet view of the park and Sophia Close. It... More

The hotel and catering industry is also known as The Hospitality Sector. Hazel and Elgan understand this. The welcome is warm; the way the staff talk to you, serve you and behave all combine to make you welcome and more importantly, feel welcome. They have a professionally relaxed approach so you feel comfortable. The requests that you make are met... More

The room (No.3) was spotlessly clean and vey quiiet as it faced the back of the hotel onto Sophia walk. Plenty of hot water and a lovely shower. Tea and coffee in the room... More

as we had followed the recommendations for this hotel we were rather surprised once arrived. There is no real charm in the place - it feels more like an "hostel/ Motel". The room was small but fortunately to the back yard - and a bit " cold' no decoration and a plastic wrapped bed head. The staff was very nice... More

We stayed at the 3-bedroomed Coach House located to the rear of the Hotel and couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience from beginning to the end of our stay. Elgan, Hazel and Petra's fantastic hosting ensured that all our needs were more than fulfilled. The quality of the accommodation was fantastic, and it's location so close to the... More

I'm doing research at both University of Warwick and Cardiff University. My colleagues in Cardiff suggest their visitors this hotel Elgano. So, I've tried in November and since then I'm regularly staying in it. Very nice and comfy rooms, lovely breakfast, highspeed broadband, and the last but not least a very kind personal 24 hours ready to help.
