Noise from outside with bad windows meant all the traffic, people and club noise were continuous all night and day! Fan was covered with dust, the tv connection was broken and kept coming loose, the staff did nothing to help with my issues and the... More

On the plus side, it had a comfortable bed and pretty good linen and the shower was better than I expected. On the slightly negative side, I had to pay £3 for wifi.I don't know any other hotel still charging for it in this day and age. The noise from the Walkabout bar next door was pretty loud and went...

This Travelodge is ideally situated for the strip. It is about a mile or so from Cardiff Bay. Easy bus ride, Taxi about £5. Totally surrounded by bars, most noisy, grubby and cheap! 5 or 10 minute walk from the castle. It is difficult to rate Travelodge as you pay totally different rates depending on when you book. I booked... More

This hotel has the advantage of being very central and reasonable value.It's not the newest Travelodge and the entrance is a little seedy especially at night but it has all the basic things you need except air conditioning.Windows often need to be shut at weekend because there is a lot of late night activity going on late at night.A fan...
