Stayed in a twin room with my friend for a girly night out. We usually stay in a budget chain hotel, but not only was this one far cheaper, the facilities were far superior. Free WiFi, hairdrier, shampoo, iron & board, fantastic showers with plenty of hot water. Even a fan if the room got too hot. And i was... More

Location is best, just in the middle of city centre. Cardiff central station is also 10 mins walk. Only disadvantage is that there is no lift and steep stairs. Nice and clean. TV, hair dryer is also available.

Firstly, let me start by saying I am not a critical person by nature. Whilst the small and tatty door marking the entrance to this hotel didn't fill me with great confidence, I approached this budget hotel with an open mind. The room was clean, the receptionist over the road was friendly. Despite other reviews to the contrary, for a... More

I am very sorry to read your review. I have lodged a complaint with the restaurant and it will get sorted. I apologise that it took your comments for this to happen. It seems to have affected just the one room. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this matter further. Kind regards, Chris More

Could not fault the location it was brilliant, we were on the 6th floor, the stair were steep and by the top we were both knackered! One night staying was fine, the room was ok, good shower but bed was very uncomfortable, I could feel the springs, other than that is seemed on the whole clean, just looks like it... More

Thank you for your review. I do understand your comments about the stairs. They can be hard work so we try to reflect this in our low price compared to other hotels in the vicinity. I am glad that you think our price was good and I wish you both a Happy New Year. Kind regards, Chris More

Location was great and that's the only thing good about this hotel. I stayed in a family room.there are so many stairs to climb so not the hotel for anyone with difficulty getting up and down the stairs. The room had a lot of damp and it was also very cold, the small heater was not good enough to heat... More

I am very sorry that you have not enjoyed your stay. The room heater is normally adequate when on full in cold conditions but we have spare portable ones that you could have used if you had asked us. I will get your other comments looked at and investigated. I regret that you will not stay with us again but... More

Unmanned rooms over a series of floors. We had to get key and sign in via Sandringham hotel opposite. The "secure" doors opened with a push, the carpet was threadbare and once we made it up to the room on the fourth floor, we were stunned. the curtains were hanging off the rails, the furniture looked as if it was...

It's not exactly modern but has everything you need. A little worn but what i expected for the price compared to the apparent going rate in Cardiff on a Friday. Especially happy with the shower - so many budget hotels offer a dribble of water and run out of hot water quickly, here the water was plentiful and warm. Only... More

We booked in last minute as it was half the price of every other hotel in Cardiff on a Friday night. My husband had stayed before and said it was a little dated so I didn't know what to expect. You have to go across the road to pick up your key at the Sandringham hotel and the staff there... More

The price was relatively low, but still jacked up for the Rugby World Cup dates. We were on the fifth floor with steep stairs and no elevator, which was difficult. Linens and bathroom were clean, but the walls were not. We found half-eaten food in the desk and bedside table. We didn't use the closet because it was mouldy, and... More

Stayed here for one night with a friend.. The price was originally £65 but the receptionist brought it down to £55 for us without me even asking. It's a bit of a nightmare to find, however - You have to go across the street first to check in and the back across. To be honest I couldn't remember the state... More
