Negatives: Noise outside the room in evening as windows right next to entrance of pub. Dust (if you stay please take a duster) Positives: Room was big. Bathroom was nice. The breakfast was very delicious to be honest. Value for money.

This really is a very good pub and stopover place,ideally situated for visiting the centre of Cardiff or for a game at the Millennium Stadium or the Cardiff City Stadium.About 35 minutes walk to either,a bus stop right outside or even an inexpensive taxi ride.I didn't use the restaurant but the chalk board menu looked very tempting and I certainly...

Stopped over prior to bike event in Cardiff. Nice room and staff very helpful with early breakfast and bike kit. Room very comfortable and nice standalone bath. Didn't eat in restaurant as traveling alone but it was very busy and food looked good from what I could see

We've just spent three nights here as we didn't want to have to drive into the centre of Cardiff. As there is free parking at the Maltsters and a good bus service, its location is ideal. We ate here once - two tasty veggie options. A friend had warned that it's noisy but it wasn't. Busy and lively with friendly... More

Usually we have good food here but last night visit was disappointing. We were a large group and had pre-ordered but two of us had burgers - which were dry as they were overcooked (and usually their burgers are lovely) one person had the belly pork - which hadn't been rendered so was very fatty and looked unappetising.

I walked in with my parter and were rudely ignored by staff members. There was a table of staff all eating food to the left of the door, who all just looked at us when we came in. We walked towards the bar and were still ignored. Tried finding a table but no staff around. Once sat down it just... More

Dear Tom I apologise for the unfortunate experience you received at the Maltsters recently. The day you arrived also coincided with our new menu launch which we are very proud of. The staff you saw had all come in on their day off so that they could try the new dishes so that they can deliver the very best service... More

Popped in last Sunday with family, we had a lovely, well cooked meal, the pub was busy by didn't wait for anything. Definitely be back again for a meal and if you haven't been then well worth the visit.

Just had a post voting dinner at the Malsters. The bar and waiting staff were very pleasant but the food was quite disappointing. When the chef explained the reason for the dryness of the food was because they didn't inject it with water I was astounded!! Given the choices in Llandaff I won't be rushing back here for food.

I came here for my sisters birthday, the waitress staff were friendly but when I asked how much it would cost me for a pint of certain cider, the man behind the bar said £8, as a stupid joke. My sister ordered a starter and it came out with the main courses. I ordered the venison terrine which didn't taste... More

We stayed at the Maltsters for two nights with friends, to visit their son and family. We found the hotel very clean with modern bathrooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was very good as was the bar food,we found the resturant was very busy with locals on Saturday evening that's always a good sign. The Hotel is in Llandaff near the... More
