Just a five minute drive from Llandough Hospital. I was warmly welcomed, the room and en suite were clean and comfortable, and I had a very good meal in the bar. All this for a very reasonable price. I stayed for one night on Sunday 3rd November 2013

Room was standard for an older inn in an older building -- furnishings aren't new, but not ancient either -- everything was clean and there was a decent-sized flat screen TV on the dresser. Could use an electrical outlet in... More

I stay throughout Wales for my role with the Welsh Government. This is my first (and not my last) stay at Cefn Mably Hotel. The staff members was extremely polite and attentive, serving me immediately upon arrival; he even offered to carry my bag. Very nice chap indeed. The room itself was spacey, a nice sized twin room with a... More

Had a four night stay from 29th April 2013. I was on my own and was given a triple room, so plenty of space, warm and comfortable with en-suite bath. I had breakfast every day and also, because of their huge menu I also ate their every night and was not disappointed. Plenty of car parking and although above a... More
