Booked through booking.com who overcharged for the room. My partner and I decided to visit Cardiff and this was one of the few places available for less than £250. The location is fine, a 10/15 minute walk into the city centre with all Cardiff has to offer. The Hotel sadly has very little to offer. Upon arrival there wasn't anybody... More

Rang the hotel direct and arranged this no problem. Arrived at the hotel an hour early than arranged took a chance to see if we could book in earlier and again no... More

We arrived around midday and having found that the on-street parking was restriction free, parked up and booked in. The 'free' parking was about the only good point of our stay. The double we had booked was in... More

This was my second visit here. It is still quite dated but its clean and friendly and good value for money. Beds very comfortable and clean, great cooked breakfast. Just bear in mind I paid a quarter of the price of a town centre twin room and free parking outside, what more do you want for the money?
