We drove to Cardiff for Mothers Day and could have drive home same day but found this hotel for crazy cheap price. Easy to find directly off motorway and plenty of easy parking. I expected a Formular 1 type hotel but it was better. Check in was quick and efficient. Room (no.123) was bigger than expected with slight smell of... More

Friendly, helpful staff members. Overall standard of cleanliness of public areas and room good, some deep cleaning of furniture, plug surrounds etc. a bit overdue. Felt a safe place to stay and, although stayed with my husband on this occasion, would be happy to visit on my own. Located within easy driving distance of Cardiff.

But it was 6.6 miles from Cardiff City Centre (this was my fault for not checking before booking) The one member of staff that I did see in the two days I was staying there was amicable but could...

A very good value hotel with good facilities and excellent self service breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful, rooms clean and modern. Biscuits would be an added bonus but overall a good base to visit Cardiff.

I arrived by taxi and discovered the hotel is a 20 minutes ride from the railway station. Check-in was efficient. Staff pleasant. Electronic key did not work in lock and had to wait five minutes for system to recognise the key. During my stay the key failed to work on a number of times. The room was clean, tidy and... More
