I stayed at The Royal Hotel in June during the Jubilee weekend, with my partner, and it was a simply superb stay.
From beginning to end, the service was impeccable and not to be faulted. I made two special requests to the hotel when I booked which was the room be on one of the higher floors (to avoid noise from St Marts Street) and that the room have a bath. Both these requests were taken into account and I was given a beautiful room on the 6th floor with en suite bath.
The room itself was immaculate upon arrival - staff were welcoming and checked us in quickly and easily. The hotel is stunningly decorated throughout, and the hotel room reflected this high quality too. It is stylish, spacious, and modern and the bed was extremely comfortable. I had a great nights sleep and was not at all bothered by any noise from the street below.
My partner and I came back late, which meant the front door was locked and we had to be buzzed in but reception took less than a minute to respond. The staff even greeted us and had a quick chat as we passed by at 2am!
Breakfast in the morning was just lovely. There was a cooked and continental buffet breakfast available. My partner and I tried a bit of both, and the selection and quality was high. Location-wise, it also cannot be faulted, opening right onto St Marys Street which is the main street in Cardiff for both shopping and a night out.
Honestly, I cannot fault anything about my stay here. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout, the room itself was beautiful and comfortable, and I would highly recommend staying here. I will most certainly be coming back!
