This hotel was very traditional, being that the building was over 100 years old but this is not, by any means, a disadvantage. The theme is very suiting to the area and much more interesting than the bland rooms and décor you would find at any travel-lodge or holiday inn.
When me and my partner arrived to find a bible in the room, something you don't often see in hotels find any more, I was concerned there would be homophobia from the staff, but on the contrary, they were very welcoming and I could not fault them on this. In particular, the manageress, Karin, was very friendly and delightful.
While the room was comfortable and pleasant, it was perhaps not the cleanest. There were obvious signs of damp and mildew that had perhaps not been properly dealt with and the shower doors could have used a bit of treatment as they were a bit of a struggle to open and close but this was the only obvious fault I could pick with this hotel.
While we didn't make much use of the television, for when we did use it, half of the channels did not receive a proper signal so we were restricted to what we could watch, that being said, I have noticed that this is a problem in most hotels and in all fairness, you don't go away and stay in a hotel just to watch television, I can do that at home!
The breakfast was filling and well prepared and the cups, while small (as with most hotels) were clean as were the cutlery and crockery. Upon arrival to breakfast, we were greeted and immediately offered a cooked meal and a choice of drinks.
Above all of this, for the delightful experience we had, it was by far the best value hotel this close to central Cardiff and I would recommend staying here again. If me and my partner decide to venture to Cardiff again, this would be our choice of hotel! Thank you, Penrhys, for a wonderful time.
