Piped in for lunch, 5 of us and they really were not busy. Drinks ordered and served quickly but food was embarrassingly slow and not worth the wait! I had to remind them of our desser order then still had to wait ages even though none were made, it was all pre-prepared. Wouldn't return

Have eaten here many times when I still lived in Cardiff & the food, service, wine list, beer choice & atmosphere has always been fab, better since the refurb this place had a few years ago. Having moved away a couple of years ago, I recently stayed overnight & was not disappointed. We are in the evening, both of us... More

Great rooms with bath in bedroom plus a nice bathroom with fluffy towels.Great décor and nice artwork on the walls (if that's important!). Room appeared to be very clean and well maintained. Great comfortable bed, an efficient A/C. Nice, friendly welcome on arrival and rear... More

Only a couple of miles from the centre of Cardiff, half that from SWALEC so booked two nights either side of ODI Cricket and left the car at Maltsters. Clean, comfortable bedrooms with little noise from the busy pub/restaurant. Good breakfasts, evening meals perfectly acceptable but need to book as very popular at weekends. Particularly welcoming, friendly and efficient staff.

Stayed for two nights, room comfortable, breakfasts great, easy free parking, convenient for city, with advantage of not being in it. Dinner menu gave good choice, service was good. Had all the advantages of a hotel with out the hotel costs.

We had a lovely stay the night before my daughter's wedding. We booked two adjacent rooms and had use of them until lunchtime. Our bed in room 5 was very comfortable and the room and bathroom was very well decorated. We couldn't find fault with anything. We had no noise from traffic or people and we would love to go...

Visited the Maltsters this evening to meet a friend. Possibly the first time in 25 years that I had been there and what a difference. Lovely big open spaces with random table positions which made a nice feel to the place. Ordered the super salad with the chicken as an extra. Really glad we ordered the extra chicken because the...

Stayed here for a business overnight and was very pleased. Nice, clean and contemporary room; comfy bed; good modern bathroom and powerful shower. The breakfast was freshly cooked and excellent. I usually stay in one of the big brand hotels close to Cardiff central station, but this place was a much more pleseant, personal and comfortable stay. Will definitely return!
