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).

What can I say that would do justice to our stay at Jolyons in Cardiff Bay and more to the point would give you just some idea of the warmth energy and efficiency of Jonathan the hotel manager.

Stayed one night for work and I will definitely be back! Welcomed by the lovely Joanna who couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Room was spotlessly clean and bathroom had nice big fluffy towels. If you can ask for Room #1. Four poster bed, bath tub, big shower. Only slight issue is that the room was on ground floor... More

This was a very good place. Every room, though only 7 of them, has its own character. The breakfast was superb, thank you Nihad. The other two ladies, Rhian & Jo, were very professional with what they did for us and Jo in particular was extremely friendly. My reason for the 4 instead of 5 is because of the lack... More

We received a happy welcome from Jonathan who was lovely and helpful from beginning to the end of our stay. A lovely clean and pleasant room, comfy bed and a nice breakfast, what more could you ask for. Very close to the theatre and many bars and restaurants.

I must explain that I have stayed at Jolyon's Cardiff Bay before but I had a calamity when attempting to book again recently.The "poor" rating above relates to this rather than my general impressions of the hotel.
