My husband and I stayed in room 2 recently for our anniversary and were really impressed by the hotel and staff. The hotel had a lovey feel to it , non corporate and stylish. The breakfast was fab and thanks for our anniversary card, a lovely thought. We will be back

A nice one-night stay - the room and facilities were excellent - especially for the rate I paid; fantastic value and a very good, fresh breakfast to start the day. I left a personal belonging in the room after checking out, and the staff took it to the post office, weighed it to get me costing options before sending it... More

From the very first minute of walking into Jolyon's, you instantly feel at home. The decor of the hotel is elegant and classic, and Jo (the lady who greeted us) is absolutely fantastic. Jo literally couldn't do enough for us. The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of Cardiff Bay. A stones throw away from the Wales Millennium centre,... More

Despite the fact that we arrived much earlier than the official booking in time we were greeted with a very warm welcome. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom had both a walk in shower and a bath. The breakfast was lovely, with a wide choice available. All in all a relaxing... More

If you have booked to stay at this hotel, don't expect a room when you get there! My wife and I booked a room at this hotel via a well known website (booking a room, late).

Dear John h, Thank you for your comments regarding your experience on Saturday. Unfortunately at this time the hotel or my staff were not to blame. Late rooms were selling 18 rooms ( we only have 7) and our hotel had been full for a number of weeks. Even when the 18 rooms sold they continued to sell a matter... More
