The room was fine, although the bed wasn't the comfiest, except for a buzzing coming from the mirror/shaving plug. If you're a heavy sleeper you wont notice it but it is disruptive if you have difficulty sleeping anyway. The staff were friendly though and it isn't too far from the centre if you want the museum side.

Stayed one night in family room. Hotel is located 15 mins walk from city centre amongst many other B and B's Staff friendly, rooms generally clean with some dubious DIY. Ensuite consisted of a shower in one cupboard, a toilet in a small cupboard opposite and a wash basin in the centre of the room. Bed comfortable, bedding clean, breakfast... More

It was getting late in the evening and accommodation was scarce, we were tired and as the No Vacancy sign had not gone up we took a room at the hotel. Although adequate for a quick stop, clean and basic, the charm has really faded. . However I think the 4 poster selling point has lost it's romanticism. In fact... More

Bit of confusion as to which building I was staying in but a minor point. I booked & paid for a single room with shared bathroom, but got a double one with an ensuite - result! Room was small but comfy, spotlessly clean & perfectly adequate. Breakfast was very nice & plenty of coffee. The staff were lovely & I... More

If you value your personal safety do not stay in this hotel. A fire alarm went off for half an hour at 2am and then there was no electricity for a time and my shower did not function until I went to ask about it. When at the end of my stay I politely remarked that my it hadn't been... More

I booked this hotel rather last minute as I had intended to travel down to Cardiff from London with my daughter for the University open day and drive back on the same day. However, I changed my mind a couple of days before the visit and decided to stay overnight so I looked to see what was still available and... More

Stayed with my daughter for two nights at this guest house and no complaints at all. Great location with a park just behind the guest house, great host and great breakfast, fantastic value for money Couldn't fault it at all and shall be staying there again on next visit to Cardiff.

Really disorganized situation going on here. There are two buildings, almost next door to each other, so before you go to one of them, make sure you know which one you booked at, because they seem to not really know either. Room was tiny and outdated but decently clean, and the price was totally fine. Also the neighbourhood is beautiful,... More
