I'm writing this after my second visit to the hotel. Twice I have stayed in rooms for three people. It's a walk away from town, or a very cheap taxi, both male and female staff have been super SUPER lovely to us. (Three lads, mid twenties) The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfy, the appearance of the hotel is... More

We stayed on the 30th May 2015. First impressions were not brilliant. The hotel is tired and could do with a makeover. In our room the table lamp had no plug socket within reach and therefore useless. The en suit bathroom was adequate but again of poor standard and needing updating. The TV in our room was mounted on a... More

I have looked into your issues. I am sorry you felt so unhappy, the extension lead to the side lamp had been stolen thank you for bringing it to our attention. The tv was put in room that morning as a spare so a new tv is now in place. I have spoken to manager who was on duty regarding... More

Lovely old Victorian House in Cathedral Rd Pontcanna:Helpful friendly staff; free parking at the back. Although on a main road, the room we had was quiet, clean with more than adequate comfort. Beautiful traditionally decorated Breakfast Room and very decent cooked breakfast for £5 per head. Fantastic value for money. Only negative was that their wifi lease had expired so... More

I stayed here while visiting my daughter who's a student and was singing in a concert. I rang to check times for checking in and the owner invited me to call if I was held up to after 11pm and he'd keep reception open for me. The room was clean and the bed comfortable, though fittings and electrics showed the... More

I stayed for a night whilst on business in Cardiff. The on-site parking to the rear is handy. The hotel interior is somewhat dated and looking a bit tired, but there is a grand dining room where breakfast is served on the first floor. Room was clean and of a decent size.

Rooms clean and decent size. Parking onsite is handy. Hotel is a bit tired and dated but fine for a short stay. Only thing wrong really was the lack of hot water for shower. Would stay again. Never had breakfast as checking out time was 10 am which is not the best with a hangover.

I stayed for a week whilst working in Cardiff. The location is good and plenty of parking and its an interesting building with lots of character. The room was large and had everything you needed but was very dated and rough round the edges - clean (ish) but lots if minor quibbles like holes in the sheets, hairs in bed... More

Friendly staff, nice, quiet stay, not far from the city centre, or the central bus station. Lovely garden view from the hotel room, and the room has classic Victorian outlook. Good breakfast. Will recommend to others.

We had a good stay here to go Christmas shopping, the rooms are old fashioned in style but it was clean and tidy and functional, tea and coffee in room, car park at rear, no wifi but didn't ask either so may have just needed a password? Rooms were hot but was cold outside so was nice and a good... More
