Lovely modern travelodge, in the heart of Cardiff city centre. 3 minute walk from the central railway station and 15/20 minute walk from Cardiff Bay, 10 minute walk to the St David's shopping centre. Our room overlooked the amazing millennium stadium which was fantastic! Would recommend because of it's location and modern look. Travelodge check in is always simple because... More

Last minute trip so accommodation was limited so chose this hotel. Staff pleasant, our family room was a good size and clean but it was obvious there was improvements going on. Room far to hot with just 1 small fan. What was disappointing was there wasn't a facility to leave our luggage after checking out which other hotels offer, this... More

I've stayed in a few travelodges and premier inns over time. This one is good in the aspect of location as it is about five minutes from everything. Train station, arena, city centre which is excellent. The room was clean with a comfortable bed. What let it down though was the fact it was sooo hot. The corridors was like... More

When arriving to the hotel we got checked in by a manger (Gareth) who seemed friendly. The 1st room we had we had to move as the flush wasn't working, plus there was crumbs on the carpet and plastic bits in the bath. We room moved and the second room was clean and well maintained. The receptionist (a male doing... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable with a cot set up for a third person. No air con, but the fan was sufficient. Only complaint was when we did the early check-in. As this was out first time at a travelodge We didn't realize early check-in is £10 per person. That in itself is fine, but the receptionist didn't make... More

I stayed for one night with husband and my young son. We arrived late at night having travelled from the north of England. We used the self check in system which was quick and easy. The staff were welcoming on our arrival. However, when we got to our room it was poorly maintained. The bedding appeared to be clean, but... More

The hotel has no air con which made my room unbearable to sleep in. There was a fan in the room however this did little to compensate for the heat. The single beds were too hard, will not stay here again.

Cleanliness was key to this stay, the the bathroom and bedding were spotless. The room was a good size, the bed was very comfortable, the staff were friendly, didn't hear any external noise, excellent value for money.

This is a run of the mill Travelodge. Same old same old. Great location within 2 minutes of the station and well sited for the shops/bars in Cardiff. Staff were excellent and extremely helpful. Bit pricey but that’s the going rate for city centre places. I booked the early check in which went smoothly and asked for a quiet room... More
