Went for a meal here but did not stay as we are local. Food was lovely, great selection too. Portions were a really good size. Staff were great & friendly but it was busy so we did have to wait a little while for our food.

I had a single room that was so small I only had to make a step and I was in the bathroom. The housekeeping forgot about the toilet roll and the shower was mouldy. The worse thing - the cigarette odor, I couldn't get rid of that smell no matter how much perfume I've used. Really horrible! Sorry, I won't... More

The location of this hotel is good: walking distance to the shops, Penarth pier and it only takes you ten minutes to get to Cardiff central by train (the train station is conveniently closeby). Although the restaurant has undergone renovation and looks appealing, the rooms are very dated. We stayed in a room that was dirty (big cobwebs coming from... More

Noisy room with loud extractor fan outside, no room heating controls, iron but no ironing board and the worst thing of all -- no hot water in the morning. Hot water should be a basic - get it right guys. Also had to wait for ages to check out only to be eventually greater by a grumpy member of staff... More
