It didn't start right because of some lunatic guest running naked in the corridor outside our room.My friend complained to the reception and it was dealt brilliantly by the staff most especially to the duty manager that night Daniel and the lovely receptionist which...

Location is excellent, just outside the Castle and near the best shops and restaurants in the city. Quick check-in and check-out, which is always appreciated. The hotel is beautiful and is being renovated, so the smell of paint was quite strong. The room was really big, as well as as the bathroom. Wifi was slow and difficult, and there was... More

Was disappointed with this hotel being one of the oldest in Cardiff and so well know I was expecting a lot better from a 4 star which I find hard to believe. The entrance was very nice with friendly staff but the rooms were very dated with damp patches on the walls and the ceiling looked really grubby.The bathroom was... More

The Angel is superbly situated in the centre of Cardiff, just metres from the castle and Millennium Stadium and 2 minutes from the excellent shopping centre. Our room was large and clean with all the facilities you would expect of a 4 star hotel and at £45 (no breakfast) was amazing value.

We stayed at the Angel as part of a coach trip. Must admit reading the other reviews on this hotel we were very apprehensive. Most were wrong. We had a lovely out facing room with comfortable beds, bathroom was super, two easy chairs, large television and very clean. Yes the furniture is rather worn but I understand this is in... More

Having booked a room here for a trip to meet up with old friends from university, I was looking forward to staying at The Angel. When I used to live in Cardiff, this was known as quite an exclusive hotel. The price we paid I would say was reasonable for a Saturday in the city centre, but I was expecting... More
