What more could you ask for at this price....rooms were comfy and well equipped with clean shower, nice tv, and all the stuff you may need! With free parking, delicious breakfast, and brilliant service. Nice and easy drive into town, and the pier nearby is well worth a visit. Highly recommend this place, as a cheap, good value place outside... More

Stayed here for 3 nights.Lovely and clean rooms.Just need a bit of modernising. Other than that comfortable stay. Buses run frequently into penarth and Cardiff if you get a all day ticket 3.60 you can use the bus service the same day as many times as you want if you show your bus ticket.

Five of us who had not seen each other for a while decided to get together at the Cefn. I was initially a bit reluctant as previously I had been and beer was very hit and miss.

Cefn Mably Hotel is a great place to stay when you visit Penarth. I have stayed there for two nights recently and it is not my first visit. Although the hotel is a distance from the city centre, it is completely accessible via well served bus routes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way... More

We stayed here because our sister was in hospital in Wales. As it wasn't a leisure visit as such but rather a necessary expense it was great to find this place which was very reasonable and suited our purposes very well. We had a twin room and only paid £50+ for the night (brilliant). The staff were really friendly, the... More

On arrival we were shown to our room, started unpacking then we were told we had been put in the wrong room!!! Moved to the... More

We stayed as a group of lads to watch the recent rugby match. Rooms were recently decorated and furnished and were fine for our stay. The bar was lively and hostess was keen to ensure we were happy. overall..ok...but a bit pricey at £100 per night

Stayed here recently when the main city hotels were all busy. This isn't an expensive place and I was unsure what to expect but the room I was given was warm, with a comfortable bed and was spotless. The guy checking me in couldn't have been more helpful, breakfast was good and owners friendly. Fast free Wi-Fi. Taxi to the... More
