Well decorated with nice lighting in the bar/restaurant area and a pleasant room with all new shower etc.I stayed in room 3 at the front of the hotel which was quite small but perfectly formed and totally sufficient. Although the restaurant is... More

This hotel is easily found and is very secure. The location is fantastic being right next to the park and the castle as well as the centre itself. We stayed for two nights and it was the hotel that made the trip. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was very delicious. Our room was lovely and the... More

Breakfast was more than adequate and th following... More

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
