The B&B is upstairs of an Italian restaurant. The room was not so clean with old sheets, the tea set was dirty. The bath was essential without hair dryer. The light and the fan in the bath start automatically with a sensor. The smell of restaurant kitchen goes in the room through the bath.

Stayed at the Elgano for a night earlier this month. I stayed in the coach house which is separate from the main hotel. Very clean, but felt slightly damp. Could have done with being aired , but as on ground floor I didn't want to sleep with the window open. Other than that hotel was very good value (£60.00 including... More

The room was in a detached carriage house behind the hotel proper, requiring us to walk through the restaurant to get to the lobby and street entrance. Location was not as convenient to Cardiff City Centre as we'd hoped. Breakfast was only available for a short time in the morning; we did not eat there. On the plus side, shower... More

The 'welcome' was efficient but not friendly, the room was a little cramped and , although clean, it was obvious that the shower had not been serviced since its last use. Breakfast was limited for the price bracket this hotel was in. I know that all hotels have off days but I am not tempted to stay here again.

Great location, only a few minutes walk to the city centre. A warm welcome on arrival and guided into the car park, it is a little tight for a van. Stayed in the coach house at the rear of the property, it was clean,tidy and very quiet (no road noise) Very good value. Would definitely stay again.

Warm welcome, clean, well appointed room, quiet and near the park. This dog-friendly hotel near the beautiful Sofia Gardens and 15 minutes walk from the centre of Cardiff ticked all the boxes for its great value and excellent Italian restaurant. My Tagliata di Manzo (sirloin steak strips on a delicious salad) made the perfect birthday treat. We will return.
