The staff were very friendly but possibly because they know that they quite often get bad reviews so have to keep smiling! The room was NOT what I booked. It was supposed to be a premium room but although it was a large room it was very dated...I was really disappointed as it was not at all what I was...

Hotel is beautiful and in its day was probably really lovely but it is tired and dated, but clean and the staff and food were great. Our room was spacious and bathroom large and though we didn't have street view it was...

Beautiful hotel although the room was a bit passed its sell by date with dated décor and furniture. The staff and food was good though. The location is excellent right in the heart of Cardiff city centre. It also offers parking which is convenient as well as offering pet accommodation. I really liked the vibe of the hotel having stayed...

Booked afternoon tea through groupon, was so looking forward to it and ended up coming away feeling beyond disappointed and thinking the whole experience was a joke!! - a very bad one at that. I've been for afternoon tea many times at different hotels/restaurants and this one has been the worst food related experience I've ever had. Having stayed at...

Have just come back from a night stay at the angel courtesy of a groupon deal. We stayed in room 303 which was facing the main road. There is some traffic noise but nothing too distracting. The room had lovely king size bed with white duvet set. Comfy and clean!! The bathroom was plenty big enough and very clean also....

This is quite a good location depending what your plans are for Cardiff visit. The attached parking is well price for a city center (13.50 overnight) but it is first come first served and very 'tight' had trouble getting out due to box van partially obscuring exit. Check in seemed unnessarly long. Room/bathroom was a good size and spotless but...
