Had a lovely nights stay staff very helpful despite some awkward guests. Room was great. Food nicely presented and ok. Menu in the restaurant was a bit scares. In choice. And the menu in the room had much more choice. Not sure if it was because they were quite. But still no complaints.

I live in Cardiff and I have walked passed this hotel hundreds of times wondering what it was like inside. So as I was taking my daughter to the New Theatre I thought the three of us would give the bed and breakfast a try. We arrived early, so I was hoping to leave my bags to check in later,...

As like an earlier review, I spent five days over the Christmas period at the Angel, part of a package break. This hotel was amazing, in so far as they made my stay so welcoming and satisfying as is possible. The smiling and friendly welcome got me in the mood, then the room was surprisingly large and comfortable. The little...

Reception area was decorated beautifully and staff were friendly. Room was disappointing (214). Had obviously had new curtains and wallpaper recently but the window was cracked and the room dark, not ideal for putting makeup on! The bathroom was dated and not particularly clean around the shower control and blind needed replacing as dirty, as was the floor, thick pile...

I stayed here with my partner recently for a nice evening out watching a show. We actually booked this hotel by mistake but it was in a decent location not far from town and didn't pay much so we were happy to give it a try. The lobby was dated and looked like it needed a deep clean but all...

Dear MER93, Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. I am really quite surprised to read your comments with regard to the lobby area, I personally feel it is far from dated and is very much in keeping with the age of the property, although can appreciate if your preference is the Hilton or Park Plaza, both...

Friendly staff and fabulously elegant hotel. The staff were friendly but there were only two. It got quite busy In the bar and the waiting time was quite long but even with this it was still a lively place to sit and chat before the game

Dear Fishjoe, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We do have a great atmosphere on Rugby days, although I am unsure from your review whether this was an International Match or local game. There are a choice of bars available so I am sorry you felt that there was a wait time at one of them...
