Customer service was so poor - the guy who met us when we checked in couldn't wait to get back to what ever he was doing. The rooms are nicely decorated but very few have ensuite and there is only 1 toilet and shower per floor, beware the shower is not powerful at all. It's more like a nice hostel,... More

Stayed overnight with my family while collecting my sister from university. The greeting was fantastic and friendly. After being placed in my own room (as requested) I found it be clean, roomy and light. The only problem I faced, was my room was on the ground floor at the front, so I could hear buses all through the night. My... More

I have gone in this place because it had the best price of all hotel in Cardiff. I imagined it would be an hovel, but... Everything was perfect: clean bathroom (shared), kind staff, good position. The manager has deserved compliments personally and on TripAdvisor. Well-reccomended

It is a family owned business and the pride in what they have built shows in everything they do. As so many of the reviews have indicated, this is a lovely stop in Cardiff. It is comfortable; rooms are updated and our top of the building ensuite was a bit of a climb, but worth it. It sparkled, it was... More

Comfortable beds, convenient bus stop to city center, and Tony the manager was very helpful in amending my reservation! Also, walking distance from pubs and grocery. Safe car park in back. I recommend this property!

Really nice comfortable hotel. Reasonable price. Breakfast is extra if you want it. A one night stay while I was there for a conference. I was helped to find somewhere to eat and even offered a takeaway menu. The décor and general condition of the hotel was high. Enjoyed the stay and had a good night's sleep.

I needed a single room for one night before my daughter arrived and we started our holiday. This was a lovely old house, I was right at the top of the house but thankfully I didn't have to carry my own case all that way. Breakfast was a bargain so I took advantage, and it was very enjoyable. Nice comfy... More

I have been using Tanes for around 15 years when I go to visit my sister in Cardiff. The service is consistently good. The rooms are simple, clean and in good condition, the lounge is always well-tended and breakfast is always right on the button. They have expanded over the years, which in itself is a testament to the excellent... More

Affordable price, nice interior and rather spacious room I especially like the window view from my room 20 Every floor has a shared bathroom so it's not a problem of using that Towels provided, and disposable slippers as well! It's a good surprise! A big disadvantage is it's a bit far from the centre. Need to walk for about 20mins... More

We often go out to Cardiff, either my husband and I or with girl friends and we have stayed at the Tanes three times now and I wanted to write a review for ages. We went to see "Wicked" the musical last week and stayed again. We have always been made very welcome, Tony the Manager is very friendly and... More
