“Great budget hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Great budget hotel off J30 M4, has Burger King, Starbucks,toby carvery all in the same service area.
Also has Mc Donald's and Asda Superstore less than a minutes drive away.
Check in was smooth.
Pool table seating area, news on tv in reception area.
Room was clean, double bed with double pull out bed.
Bathroom was spacious with shower enclosed, plenty warm water.
We were ground floor close to the door from reception to corridor, which on the first nt was very noisy with lots of people back and fore through this door which constantly banged etc
We could also hear guests out smoking outside the hotel entrance as we had a room in this area so we could easily hear them via window talking when we were trying to get to sleep.
Guests issue rather than hotel.
On the second nt. hotel was much quieter and we had no such issues.
Just shows its down to the guests.
Room was comfortable and great value at £30 per family a nt.
Its location makes it so easy to get to city and its surrounding area.
Taxi to bay was £15 one way.
Would stay again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

A great hotel, smoothly and efficiently run but hampered by a very poor location.
The hotel is sited just on the boundary of the Cardiff Gate motorway services. There is a very tight, easily missed entrance gate to the hotel on a bend just as you are coming into the services. Worse still there is no pedestrian access as far I could see - if you want to stretch your legs you have to risk your life walking along the main access road to the service area and yet the hotel back on to a pavement - why no pedestrian access there? Staff were great, room was above normal Ibis standards - all good. just sort out the access!

I travel a lot and need comfortable no hassle accommodation. Ibis has WIFI in every room so can log in on my website and carry out work. IBIS and most ACCOR hotels are dog friendly. Breakfast good, staff generally go pit of their way to help.
