As expected the room in a hotel right in the city centre was a bit noisy. For 1 night only it was managable, for 2 nights it would have been a little challenge. The staff was superb and booked us a table in the Jazz Cafe/restaurant downstairs when we arrived - music & food was brilliant!

Thank you very much for your lovely review. I am pleased to read that you have enjoyed your stay. I understand your comments about noise on the weekends. Guests can request rooms off the main street which are quieter so hopefully we shall welcome you again in one of these rooms in the future. Kind regards, Simon More

Thank you Kate for your really nice review. It was lovely to meet you. I am delighted to read that you have enjoyed your stay. I apologise that the Wi-Fi was a little hit and miss. I am assured that we have just over 90% coverage but I am aiming for 100%. Fibre Optic was also due in September 2014... More

This visit was for Cardiff comic con and was only a 5 minute walk from the Bus station and a 5 minute walk to the Motor point arena so perfect location. Considering it was bang in the centre of the night life it was surprisingly quiet from the room. The hotel and the rooms were quite dated. However they were... More

Room was very clean and a good size and bathroom was fine and bed comfortable. Fittings were a bit dated but didn't detract from our stay. Very nice breakfast. Ruth who served us... More
