Very central hotel, good location. Could do with updating and freshening the décor Bath and shower very grubby (room 208).. Also we had on our first night the pleasure of a neighbouring restaurants kitchen fan loudly whirring till very early morning. That aside the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was superb. We would stay there again but... More

Thank you Lynne for staying with us recently. I am glad that you have generally enjoyed your stay and that you would both consider returning to us. I note your comments about a noisy extractor fan on the first night. They should go off by 10.30pm so I promise to get this investigated. Kind regards, Simon More

The location is fantastic and so is the staff. I would return if I go back to Cardiff. The Welsh breakfast is good and enough, very well served. My room on the first floor was nice and clean. It is a family run hotel and the owners are always present.

Thank you very much for your review. It was very nice to meet and talk with you. I know the customer is always right but I can't agree with you about the result :-)) I have kept an eye on the Wimbledon results since you left. Midway in the table so not too bad at the moment. Hopefully as you... More

The hotel price was good. The staff were friendly. We were very pleased with the vegetarian breakfast. Also the room and bathroom were a good size. There is no parking though. Although there is a car park 5 minutes away and you can pay for your ticket at the hotel at a discounted rate of £9.

Thank you very much for your review. It was really nice to meet you both. I am glad that you have enjoyed your stay and that you would consider returning. I am sorry that you found the pillows hard.

Myself & my sister stayed overnight recently as we were going to the motor point arena! The location is amazing, not far from the train station, main pubs & shops. The hotel was very dated yet charming. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The only downside for us was that we didn't feel very safe. I'm sure much of... More

Staff at this hotel, from Alison, Ann-Marie and Natalie at reception, the ladies serving breakfast, the cleaning team to Dave and Dominic in Cafe Jazz are exceptionally friendly, warm and welcoming. Whilst the decor could do with updating and there isn't a lift, the location, cleanliness and value for money offered here is very good indeed. Check out the discounts... More

The hotel is very outdate and simple, but enough comfortable and you find what you paid for...On the other hand the location is the best you can find in town ..central and nearby all city hotspots. I enjoyed so much the staff. They are all welcoming and caring
