This hotel is in a great location and setting away from Cardiff city centre with a golf course surrounding it.
The leisure facilities including gym, pool, and spa have recently been refurbished and look really nice. I only wish I could say the same thing for the hotel.
You can see from the moment you walk up to the hotel that the windows are shabby, and as you step inside you can see that the same can be said for the surrounding decor.
While the communal areas are probably justed dated, the rooms themselves are very tired. I can't say that the walls were damp, but the room definitely smelt damp, and there were darker patches on the walls.
The rooms seem to be well serviced and as clean as they can be for the general condition.
Not sure I can recommend anyone to stay here. Try the New House Hotel which is another Best Western and in my opinion better value as I stayed there last week.
