Booked this as a stay over for myself and a few mates from university. The rooms were clean (not exactly the ritz but very good for the price paid), staff friendly and was just far enough outside the city centre to be quiet. The bar and pool table were all very good for just a few drinks before going into... More

Just spent a hen weekend in Cardiff and found that the location of bubbas great, bus stop just over the road and the friendly host made the stay a good one. This is a buget hotel but for girl's and guy's on a buget it has it all and a fab breakfast thrown in. Will definately use them again.

The sloping ceilind made it dangerous... More
