Had a great time staying here, for a weekend alone, in Cardiff. I had a great weekend. On the first night I slept for 9 hours straight - something thats unheared of for me, so I was more then ready for breakfast the following day. That was also delicious. The room was slightly jaded but it was clean, and the... More

When we arrived at the hotel, there's a lovely grand stairway and reception which made me a little excited to see the room, receptionist was lovely also, lifts were small but still excited until we got out of the lift on the third floor. The floors are uneven, made you feel like you had a touch of vertigo walking down... More

We stayed for one night at the Angel, on a 'Living Social' deal, £99 for bed and breakfast, and evening meal with a bottle of wine. The hotel has been refurbished to a very good standard. The room was lovely and warm, and quite spacious and elegant. The restaurant meal was really super, as was breakfast. The hotel is in... More

We have stayed at the Angel Hotel previously on a few weekend nights by booking via the hotels website. This time however, I booked using hotels.com, a few months prior to the visit. We booked it for an evening following an event we were attending in the Motorpoint, for a Saturday night stay. As we wanted to do some shopping... More

My wife and I went here for afternoon tea with a Buyagift voucher from our son. The first good thing about it is that tea is available from 12-5, which means you can have it in place of lunch if you wish. The restaurant area was impressive, as was the lobby and the grand staircase. As for the tea itself,... More

This hotel is in a good location and has a car park but, at £10 a day, it is a bit pricey. Also, only has one entrance/exit as the other barrier is blocked by parked cars. The room we stayed in was clean but very small. It overlooked the car park. Generally, it was a pleasant hotel to stay in... More

The points for improvement that you have mentioned have been read carefully and have been noted. Thank you for sharing your experience... More

Stayed at the Angel as a late honeymoon. Location was good for the city centre however the signage for the car park wasn't amazing and it was still quite a distance from the bay (not a big problem). Car Park didn't look particularly secure, only camera points towards entrance and doesn't see any of the vehicles inside. Hotel is stunning... More

Stayed in December 2014. Booked it many months in advance to attend a concert. The hotel itself is very nice, an old building but lots of character. Drinks are a bit pricey in the bat but you expect that. The but is the room... Although fairly nice it is very small and a little bit worn... I've definetly stayed in... More

I stayed at the hotel last night and agree with a lot of the statements in the reviews , but particularly with Advocates . Whilst I found the staff extremely helpful , cheerful and polite , the general state of the hotel is extremely poor . The place obviously gets patched up rather than getting the full refurb which it... More
