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

You get what you pay for. About a 10 minutes walk to the centre. The rooms are old looking and make sure if you book a triple you actually then request one. Very misleading. The staff were friendly enough but nothing special. Wi-fi did not work despite several attempts. Overall basic and I wouldn't stay again. But if for one... More

That was the first time ive been there as normally stay nearby but liked the place and I will... More

Décor, fixtures and fittings appear to be from the 70s, as did the perma-tan sausage presented to me as part of the full English breakfast. The top-floor triple room (no.15) was at least bright and airy - a welcome contrast to the tiny, windowless attic room (no.18) I had originally been offered on arrival. However, the next day my belongings... More
