The hotel is in a good location opposite the castle. As both Castle Street and, to a lesser extent, Westgate Street are busy roads, I asked for a room overlooking the car park at the back of the hotel. This proved to be a quiet location. Fine if you don't mind much of a view. The twin-bedded room had comfortable... More

A lovely hotel, albeit a bit dated, with friendly staff and the perfect location. This was my second stay at The Angel and I would definitely recommend it to people who are looking for an ultra convenient place to stay in Cardiff. I only needed an overnight stay within walking distance to the city centre and the university and The... More

I chose this hotel as it was adjacent to Sophia Gardens and the sports centre. We also went to see Gary Barlow at the Motorpoint Arena. Cardiff is a beautiful city and most places are accessible on foot. We have stayed in several hotels in Cardiff before but enjoyed the Angel most of all because it has character, which the... More

A beautiful hotel, great location in the city centre. Friendly staff, a few areas of the hotel could do with a make over, but when you are paying a price that is comparable to a Premier Inn, then you can't really complain. I will definitely look at The Angel first when I stay in Cardiff next.

We found this hotel to be friendly and the atmosphere was relaxing. The bedroom was very comfortable as were the lounges. The staff were very helpful and attentive. We had dinner in the evening which was excellent. The menu was varied with good service. We would certainly stay here again.

The hotel is well located opposite Cardiff Castle and was easy to find. On arrival the greeting from reception staff was friendly and inviting. The main foyer and reception hall with staircase is a very impressive entrance to the upper levels, however on leaving this room for the corridor to the rooms the place immediately started looking quite shabby. The... More

The Angel Hotel is in a great position for a city break. The staff are both efficient and friendly. All rooms are different and our original was very ideosyncratic. We changed to a lovely light room at the front of the hotel and were very happy. The food at both dinner and breakfast was of a super quality and variety.

The receptionists welcome was very good and dealing with problems with my room later. The journey to my room took me via the grand staircase that looks like it had be renovated, the mirrored doors leading to the castle facing bed rooms was the last you would see of any refurbishment. The first room was cleanish but never warmed up,... More

Hotel was in a good location for getting to see city and Cardiff Bay area but noisy at night due to being on main road. Room comfortable but very hot had to have fan on all night not able to open windows due to noisy road and old sash type windows and secondary glazing. Restaurant average one step up from... More
