Stayed here one night and was very impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff in reception. When we asked if we could leave our case in reception while we visited the university they were happy to oblige. The first impressions of the hotel are also that it is a grand and luxurious building. In the main hall a... More

Stayed here for two nights. Staff are friendly, rooms are nice and clean, could do with modernising but its not a major issue. Free wi-fi also great, once it eventually comes up. Yes there is traffic noise but find a hotel in the centre of a capital city that doesnt have traffic noise. Near both the stadium, the castle, and... More

There are 2 very small lifts that take you to the floors where the rooms are located, these lifts are tiny... More

Not sure why there are negative comments, it is an old hotel, however was comfortable enough. I don't think I would take the wife there for a romantic break but certainly for business and for a few guys/girls going to Cardiff for the weekend .... very good.

I think the lengthy title of this review sums it up pretty well, but I'll elaborate a bit. Starting with the positives - The Angel is in a very good location, about two minutes walk from Cardiff castle and the city centre. Then there is the ambiance which is quite relaxing - the entrance hall is very grand, although the... More

Stayed here when we went to see War Horse, nice central hotel convenient to town center and bus service to the bay. Very old hotel and difficult to modernize but clean and comfortable. Staff pleasant and helpful. Would use again.

After a busy end of term week we had booked a night at the The Angel Hotel, to accompany going to see Dawn French at the New Theatre. Check-in was a little abrupt and impersonal, probably understandable as the gentleman on the desk appeared to be very busy without any support. Once we negotiated the teeniest tiny lift (max 6...
