We planned to stay two nights and changed our plans to stay a third when my elderly mother felt ill. The hotel was more than accommodating for our change of plans. Nice breakfast every morning and several nice restaurants within walking distance. Convenient to downtown and attractions. Parking on site was a bonus. Rooms were nicely sized and well appointed....

This is an obviously loved Victorian building, well sited for tourism or business and furnished in a nice mixture of functionality and period detail. Lovely welcome when we checked in, and our heavy bags carried up to the top floor from the car park - and what a great facility a free car park is in central Cardiff. We had...

The hotel is a 25 minute walk from the train station. I paid £115 for a king size double bedroom.The room was very spacious with a good size tv. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was a bit dated however it was still functional. The breakfast was okay; nothing special.

On my own this time (without my younger and older generations) for 4 nights in Cardiff on a mix of business and pleasure. Great family run hotel, warm welcome, helped me with my case to the top floor. The room was described as 'compact' but actually had ample space to move around. Very comfortable bed, warm quiet room, nicely decorated,...

Stay here twice over the last 12 months mainly on business. Easy to find with parking and close to city center and park. Staff are very friendly and helpful making you feel relax straight away. Lovely breakfast served with minimal delay which is important if you are on a tight schedule.

I think that you would find it hard to find a better small private hotel than this. Close to the city centre, which is a very nice walk on a fine day if you go through the park.
