I arrived late and was out in room 100. Pleasant decor, furnishings and beds. I then went out to meet s friend for dinner. On my return I needed a wash. The big problem was there was no shower ! Also the cold tap on the bath did not work, so I had to fill the bath with scalding water... More

I had read some reviews which were not very encouraging, mostly commenting on the "tireddecor" etc. As I was only going for one night, I didn't mind and thought i'ld give it a whirl as the price was very competitive. SO I went with my eyes open looking for a dated, shabby interior. Yes, you did have to climb the... More

Wow. Thank you so much for taking the time to write these lovely comments. We do try are best and it is really encouraging to read that it pays off. Your review will hopefully encourage people to stay with us. As a family run business guests expectations are formed by reviews as we do not have a brand name behind... More

Used this hotel for a one night stay with my fiancé as we were going to a gig in Cardiff motorpoint. Hotel was easy to find (we traveled by train). Staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful on check in. Double bed room was big for the amount we paid (£69) with a decent size bathroom and great working (and hot)... More

Thank you ever so much for your wonderful review. I am really pleased that you have enjoyed your stay. Rooms can be requested as you say off the main street and are quieter. I hope that we will get to see you again in the future. If so have a look at the special offers on our trip advisor page.... More

My triple room was a double bed with tiny bunk beds in the smallest room you can imagine. The hotel and rooms in serious need of a makeover. Bad smell in bathroom. Room was cold. Noisy at night because of central location. Breakfast was average. No lift and we had to climb 3 flights of stairs with our luggage. Didn't... More

Thank you very much for staying with us. I am really disappointed to read that you did not enjoy yourselves. As you say sadly we do not have a lift. We do not actually employ a porter but we do organise luggage assistance if requested. I am very sorry if this was not the case. We do have two triple... More

Its a very basic bog standard hotel with the basic facilities anyone would need for an overnight stay. It is located slap bang in the middle of the city center and if you want to go for a night on the town this hotel is ideal. The rates for an overnight stay are cost effective, car parking is £10 and... More

This is a great hotel in terms of location. The staff are incredibly friendly and breakfast was delicious. Our room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed. The ensuite was clean and adequate. Would definitely stay here again.

My hubby works away during the week so as a treat I booked a night here for us, as he was also having to work on a construction site in Cardiff City Centre the next day, he'd woken up at 6.20am the next morning then had to wait for 20minutes for hot water to come through, in the mean time... More

Thank you Natasha for your review. I am so sorry for the poor service that you have received. I will be speaking to the gentleman concerned. Steam can set our detectors off and the Night Porter should know this and should not have assumed somebody was smoking. He also as you say should have knocked before entering the room. This... More

Very amiable, efficient service in all areas (except that room service did not notice the Kleenex box was almost empty! Excellent English breakfast, beautiful breakfast room, great service. ALL hotels short the sheets and blanket when making the bed, so that anyone over five feet has to remake the bed. But here, we had a duvet too short to begin... More

Central location and perfect for a budget stay. Very friendly, family run hotel with lovely staff. The room was quiet , as I had asked for, and although the decor was a bit dated, everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was good and plentiful . Some guests had obviously stayed before and were greeted as old... More
