Stayed here last week , I stay in Cardiff frequentlyand as usual had a hellish drive down from Yorkshire due to the small road hump that is Birmingham so arrived at 2110pm, on arrival it looks like a nice place and I wasnt disappointed, the barman Steve who greeted me showed me to my room ( room 4 ) and...

Myself and friends went to Maltsters in Llandaff for a meal on the 24/7/2015, after waiting an hour for our food and being in a rush to get to our concert in Llandaff Cathedral we were preparing to ask for our money back and find food elsewhere. The waiter overheard us and stated very rudely that the wait is our... More

We were attending a weekend event in Llandaff and managed to book into the Maltsters for one night. So glad we did. Great accommodation, First class welcome and the room provided was great. Plenty of room, very comfy bed and pillows. It is advisable to prebook a table if you wish to eat in the restaurant/bar as this place seems... More

We had booked a single and a twin (3 males). On arrival, we were shown to our rooms. The single was fine. However, the twin was a double and had to be rearranged to comply. Whilst waiting for the room to be made ready, I thought I would have a browse on the internet. There was a connection, but unfortunately,... More

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.
