We had a couple of rooms - family & double - at £15-£29/night (early booking, and later booking) for 5 nights last week during a lovely sunny week and were very pleased indeed as the new beds were MUCH liked, and the hotel's in very good nick and conveniently located.
Modern purpose built building and rooms (very recently as I understand it, hence maybe why they have a new TripAdvisor profile) refurbished with their new very decent pocket-sprung king "Sleepeezee" mattresses (instead of maybe tired/cheapo ones) and four pillows (v. maybe 3 tired ones).
Otherwise very standard 'recent-design' Travelodge rooms with red tiling in bathroom [as per others pics]; bedhead unit with strip light [white rather than later amber]; those daft bendy metal spring style bedside lights [they later substituted flush ones] though still in full working order; a small but functional desk with light above; and no storage space/shelfage apart from the one above the open-plan hangers behind the door. There were 2 mains sockets on desk, and one for electric heater. While we were there they left a small electric fan so maybe anticipating hot rooms on South side with summer sun [we left window ajar when we went out anyway].
Travelwise VERY convenient: free parking (they validate Red Dragon car park ticket); just a few mins walk from Bay rail station (for shuttle train to Queen St), but most conveniently for stops for Cardiff Bus 6 BayCar bendy-bus service up to and around City Centre (main station just 6 minutes away) - running every 10 mins most of day (and still only 20 mins late evenings). Walking it's just 5-10 mins from Millennium Centre and all the Bay area restaurants/stores/etc; both Sainsburys & Tesco local stores there too.
So being used to the clean-simple, poor storage in the Travelodge designs of the 2000's we found the new beds a VAST improvement on hit & miss bedding in some Travelodges and at the sort of prices we paid would definitely stay again at this one!
