We stayed at this hotel whilst we visited Cardiff for the weekend and stayed one night. We had a room at the top of the hotel which was spacious and comfortable. The only issues were that the velux window in the roof did not have a curtain, so if you wanted to sleep when it was light outside you'd need... More

Ideal stop over for a night at the local Globe live music venue which is just a couple of streets away. Stayed in the ensuite double bedroom top floor, nice, clean and comfortable. free off street parking behind the hotel down a small lane which is good for a city hotel.

Second visit, my star rating of average is a little out should be 3.5 out of 5 (good) owing to the degree of trafic noise and location, to be fair not the fault of the propiortor. The two roons I have used are both clean and comfortable. The shaired toilet and shower facilitys are clean. It is a bit of... More

Close to city centre and there is a bus right outside. The staff were friendly and helpful. Cooked breakfast is extra, but it was very nice and there were cereals and fruit on offer. The room was lovely and clean as was the onsuite. I was in a single that had plenty of space and a really comfy bed. Definitely... More

We visited Wales for the first time in August and found the hotel just by chance. I was so glad that we did. The family that runs the hotel are very sweet and friendly, as are the staff. My husband and I stayed in one room and our teenage daughter had another. We had two rooms at the top with... More

The old house is beautiful, the family very sweet. There were problems with TV and an unprepared room, but they issued a full refund. They are a very interesting family and the front room balconies are lovely. The main sitting parlor is full of old books, and the breakfast quite good. Thanks much! from Victoria, the "Comedy of Errors" guest

Having the opportunity to experience this hotel would have been good but due to the cancellation of Paolo Nutini in Cardiff, and a postponed date for when he's better we had to cancel the hotel. In our naivety, we didn't plan for his tonsillitis or, therefore, the hotel's insistence that we pay full price for the room even though we... More

The guest made a booking via a third party website (which I am not allowed to mention here because of Trip Advisor policy), not the hotel website. The guest selected a non-refundable booking (from other options available) – the terms and conditions state “Please note, if cancelled or modified, the total price of the reservation will be charged. The total... More

Spent a couple of nights visiting daughter at Uni. First impressions upon arriving were worrying, dated corridors with ironing boards, children's buggies and electric cable dangling from the walls. The very nice lady that greeted us told us not to worry that the building was being renovated. She showed us to our room and we were very pleasantly suprised. A... More

When you see a tired corridor it makes one's heart sink - this is what happened at the Tanes! Rooms however were comfortable and I had the best nights sleep in a long while - so the corridors are not a reflection of the room standard. Thank goodness! Cannot comment on food as did not partake - long training days... More
