Stayed here with my boyfriend for New Year's Eve, staff were so welcoming and kind, they ha stopped serving food but when we asked they made us some food no complaining! Has car parking! Which you don't always find. Room was cosy, 'homely' warm all night! No complaints about this hotel remember you get what you paid for! Fab! 5*... More

Just got back from Cardiff after a quick one girls night away to see Madness in concert! The Cayo Inn is an ideal place to stay when visiting Cardiff. It is a short taxi ride from the station or a very pleasant walk especially after you have off loaded your luggage. The Cayo itself is excellent value for money, very... More

Located on the 'town end' of Cathedral Road, the Cayo is within easy walking distance of Cardiff city centre, with the length of time taken mainly governed by whether or not you want to enjoy the sights and sounds offered by a route that takes you via Pontcanna Fields, Sophia Gardens and Bute Park. When we visited for an overnight... More

The Cayo is just outside the main City Centre, and therefore isnt as expensive as the central hotels. Walking distance to the castle, but probably best to get a taxi from the station. The Cayo is a residential pub, so there is obviously associated noise. Allowing for that, the hotel is great value for money. Nice and clean ,comfortable bedrooms... More

Very good price and with breakfast included and 20% off any other food, you couldn't ask for more! The food was also tasty and great sized portions! The rooms were lovely...tea/coffee making facilities, tv and a very comfortable bed!... More

We stayed here as a group of 4 friends, mid-week for three nights and were very impressed with our stay from start to finish. The staff were very friendly and polite, our room was much better than we'd anticipated considering how very reasonably priced it was. The location is great, within easy walking distance of buses to key attractions in... More

We booked a room for 4 for 2 nights for the Heineken Cup weekend & were extremely pleased with the accommodation, especially for the price. The hotel is 20 minutes walk from Cardiff Central station & you pass the Millennium Stadium on the way. A reasonably quiet area, but not far to walk to the busy town centre. The room... More
