We stayed for 3 nights, very comfortable, spacious room, good dinner and great afternoon tea. Very helpful staff. Hotel is very convenient for the train station, the main sights, especially the castle and close to the water bus stop. The shops and restaurants are also within a few minutes walk of the hotel.

I recently attended a conference here. The most central location for a conference in Cardiff. Plenty of car parking nearby, including the hotel car park. Cardiff is a busy city, but everything was calm inside the hotel on this day. A large conference room was provided as well as a number of smaller meeting rooms. Tea/coffee and tasty cookies were...

The hotel looks grand when you first walk in. But after walking around you notice how tired it looks. We went for one of the delux rooms of the castle. The windows are single glazed so exspect a lot of noise from the road. The was also a damp like smell to the room. At night you could hear every...

Poor night's sleep as our room was on the road side. Traffic noise was loud. No double glazing just draughty old sash windows. I agree with some of the other reviews that the rooms need upgrading. Having said that the hotel is very nice and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was very good and the location in Cardiff is...

Huge variation in room quality. Some rooms are newly refurbished, other are old and smelly. We changed rooms twice before we were given a newly reformed room. Previous visits have been much more pleasant. Overall this is a nice and clean hotel with perfect location in Cardiff

Lovely hotel in the heart of Cardiff, great location for the castle and the stadium, breakfast were very nice with the standard selection, staff are very pleasant and helpful. Just be aware that the car park is £13 per day

Our room was shabby and in need of a makeover. It hadn't been cleaned properly, dirty marks on the bathroom door, dirty toilet (yuk), bare wood on the doorframe, door had been forced, etc etc. Glad we were only staying for one night. I would have rated lower but it's in a great position and the staff were friendly and...

Myself and my family stayed here for 2 nights to attend a wedding. The location is brilliant and staff were friendly. Breakfast was lovely and plenty of it. The rooms could do with some updated but the room was a lovely size and very clean.

This was an excellent experience. Well located near Bute park and Cardiff Castle. Staff was great and even better dogs allowed! We booked by Groupon and enjoyed very much. Little on the older side but who cares when the location and staff more than made up for it! On site restaurant was good as well. Had dinner, afternoon tea, and...
