Had 1 night here and was delighted to be upgraded to a suite which was like a mini apartment except I have never been in one with gilt chairs and a deep plunge bath before! It was really well equipped - all the usual things plus fridge, microwave and coffee maker and the bed was very comfy. The plunge bath... More

We stayed for two nights while visiting the Millennium Centre. Our ground floor room was very large, with a comfortable four poster bed [although the view of the wall-mouted TV was blocked for one of us by the bed-post and drapery. The hotel was ideal for a visit to the Cardiff Bay area - a busy part of the city... More

Stayed here for a weekend in Cardiff and enjoyed our stay. Our host Jonathan was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was served downstairs and was a relaxing start to the day. It was a little noisy due to the pub next-door and the food festival going on in the bay, but that's not the hotels fault. Be aware though if you... More

Breakfast was nice, not huge but adequate, not very hot though in fact it... More

A gem of a Hotel - large modern bedroom with bathroom from a Sunday supplement. Friendly staff and a legendary Welsh breakfast. Would go there again any time provided that there is room for me since it is small and very popular.
