Fantastic Hotel in a fantastic location. The interior was beautiful, the staff were more than helpful. Really comfortable bed, spotless room. The only minor issue was the bed was against the wall which made it difficult to get in and out after a few shandys.

Having read some reviews AFTER I booked the hotel, I was a bit worried as it seems it can be a bit of a hit and miss. I must say I was very nicely surprised. Our room was lovely, very spacious and we even had two tellies. Clean and neat, lovely bathroom. When we parked at the hotel car park,... More

I bought a voucher on living social for afternoon tea for 2 with Prosecco for £17. My mum says I am slightly obsessed with afternoon tea and I think it's true and as a result I have had rather a few in South Wales. Afternoon tea was served in the bar, there was 1 other table and a few people... More

Excellent entrance area, bedroom in need of a spruce up. Bedding and towels spotless, bathroom tired but clean. Minimal coffee and no biscuits. Breakfast excellent, lovely cutlery, clean cloths , bread covered, good cooked selection. Yes I would stay again but don't expect pristine decor.

And the breakfast was fabulous, The Best we have EVER had in a hotel. Would love to stay in The Angel this Sept , but as we are cash only people, The chances of it... More

For a single room the price was good value but the fact the air conditioning wasn't working and the shower head wouldn't stay upright detracted from the offer. Apparently they are waiting for the air conditioning unites to be refitted, but until then, the rooms are unbelievably hot especially as it wasn't particularly warm outside. Saying that, they did supply... More

The hotel is very conveniently located, the breakfast was very good with a choice of cooked food, pastries, fruit, cereals and cheese. The staff were very friendly and the room was spacious and clean. My only regret is that we didn't take the opportunity to get a boat to Cardiff Bay from the park opposite the hotel. A wonderful stay.

The hotel is slightly off from the castle, From our room we were directly across from the castle in line with the clock tower so we heard the bells chime every hour, the main road was outside our window to , so that was quite loud, the room was a double it was comfortable but in need of some renovation,...

We had three reasons for our weekend stay - to celebrate our wedding anniversary, to take part in a radio broadcast and to 'catch up' with our daughter. Unfortunately it was pretty awful from start to finish. Firstly on arrival and despite having paid in full a month before, the receptionist said she had no trace of our booking, made... More
