“Joly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

Post new year stay. Great clean spacious room and superb bathroom. Quiet and peaceful with City and posh 'burb of Pontcanna on doorstep.
Amazing breakfast - quantity with quality.
Small gripe- no cream to make Irish coffee at bar and no complimentary newspaper ( they offered me this when checking in I didn't ask) as problem with supplier ! so I walked 30 metres to 24 hr garage to get one. Wasn't beyond the capability of member of staff to get either item really. Only little things but that's what matters when staying in a small hotel, which is otherwise excellent.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear are quieter but less grand, rooms at front are above bar/fronting road but posher

I had my hen party in the white room at the hotel on 22nd December 2013 with 30 guests. The room was fabulous and it was fantastic we had our own private area with private bar and DJ. We had a really lovely evening and the staff ( service and bar staff as well as the office staff prior to the event) were fantastic and very attentive. The food was also really lovely and excellent value for money too, I would definitely come back to this venue for any parties or events and would highly recommend it!

We came here for New Year's Eve and stayed in he drake suite, which was lovely. The bathroom was gorgeous, heated floor! Everything was beautifully clean, home made biscuits lots of lovely little touches. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. Only criticism slightly chaotic breakfast but it was New Year's Day and the quality of the food was excellent. Great start to new year

Having stayed in hotels all over the world we would not hesitate to recommend this wonderfully situated hotel. The rooms are warm and comfortable the service is fantastic and the breakfast amazing. We must add a special note thanking the wonderful staff, especially Tom, Adrian and Samantha who made the whole experience unforgettable.
We doubt anywhere in Cardiff could have matched this hotel for its service and staff.
We will without doubt be back to Cardiff just to stay here again.
Thank you all at Jolyons.

I have just organised a works Christmas Party in Jolyons which was held in the white room.

We organised a buffet menu and had a great time and we were so impressed with how it was all set up - we had a big table laid out with decorations, christmas crackers, a big christmas tree etc and and it was lovely to all sit around the table.

The food was really nice too and everyone commented on how nice it was.

The girl who was working behind that bar for the night was brilliant sorting everything out for us and Carl was fanastic helping us arrange it all.

It was difficult arranging a Christmas party that would suit everyone and I have to say the venue were very accomodating as we chopped and changed what we wanted but I seem to have made a good choice there as everyone is keen to go back and have it there again next year!

First discovered this hotel last year when my husband took me there for our anniversary. We have just revisted (for our anniversary again) and had just as wonderful a time as the first visit! Reading review of some people I am BAFFLED. This is A BOUTIQUE hotel. Its meant to be different. All the rooms at Jolyons are decorated differently and they keep it well maintained. So to think you would get the room on the website is a little narrow minded. The lighting is meant to be dark and romantic - again this is part of the Boutique scene. Yes, it is a little dark for the girls and their blusher but the whole experience of staying in one of the rooms is meant to be luxurious and relaxing - and it truly is! A night away from the kids in this hotel is like a week in a spa! The staff are always cheerful and happy to help - I emailed several times before to ask about the menu and received a prompt reply with a menu attached (I can take ages to choose so this was a real bonus!). The food is to DIE for. Location is wonderful. A short stroll and you are in the thick of the shopping but when you are in Jolyons it feels like you are a million miles away. As for parking, the hotel does have limited spaces but it states that you need to book. It must be pretty clear as we have booked parking the on the two visits. But as mentioned, there is LOADS of free on street parking. All in all, it is one of the nicest most friendly Hotels we have ever visited and won't be just staying in December for anniversay/xmas shopping in future. Well done Jolyons, see you around February time!

We hired the White Room for a 40th birthday party. The room was a perfect size with enough space for a musician. Bar staff were excellent and very accommodating. Good venue and those that stayed enjoyed the family suite.
