“good standard and excelent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2009

Working now for 3 years in Cardiff area, spend 1 to 2 night per week in Cardiff I try differents hotels but Campanile reflect like if I was at home a good standard room ensuite with excelent bed and Duvet with TV and Sat, welcome tray a good restaurant and excelent breakfast english and continentale for 1 price. Also free WiFi and excelent staff as usual. I can't understand people complaining when you can have room at £25.00 easily until February 2010 when the other hotels offer same type of promotion like £29 or £19 but you can't have this offer most of time and my surprise with Campanile you can! I was able to book via their website all my dates till February at £25.00 a night good great saving at this period over 50% discount.

Having read a review of the hotel being 3 miles(thinking, we can always walk) from Cardiff City Centre, was somewhat suprised to find it 6 miles+. The reception we received was muted to say the least, with a certain amount of "attitude" They said the taxi fare would be £15-£20, it wasn't (actually was less, but still poor info), they said the buses ran every 20 minutes, they didn't after 5 o'clock.

The maids woke you up each morning tapping on the windows rather than read the do not disturb sign. The room was musty/damp/dark/basic/in need of modernisation.

It was noisy (road noise and other guests)

Was basically clean though, and the shower was hot.

Had I paid £50 for this hotel, I would have been happy, but at £115 a night, I feel I in no way got value for money and would not stay there again.

Hotel is ok at the most, rooms all in a seperate block, if you get a ground floor room you have access to a large garden area right outside the door which is great ! rooms are quite small but do the job.
Location wise its a bit out of town, 10 min taxi into town or 45 min walk ! breakfast was ok too, £6.

Generally ok, ive stopped in a lot worse !

A one night stay here because I couldn’t be bothered to look around and this was the first place the GPS came up with in the area and while I had heard of the chain I had never stayed in one before so decided to give it a go.

The property is a basic no frill motel and the closest thing I cam e across to what in the US or Australia would be considered a motel with rooms accessed from an outside corridor. The rooms are small and basic, in the first room the heat didn’t work and in April in Cardiff you need heat, to their credit they did bring a small electric heater but as the room only had 1 electric power point and I needed it for other things I asked to be moved to another room and that was done without any fuss. The room was clean and tidy, a bed, desk, chair, small TV and a private bathroom although the layout of the room is a little strange with 2 doors to open before you actually get into the room, maybe something to do with keeping the cold out, but cuts into the room a bit.

The hotel is located at the end of a small street in an industrial area with nothing within walking distance so a car is a must here. It is about 8km from Cardiff city centre so not really well located for the city centre but good if you have a car as plenty of free parking.

My friend and i booked this hotel, when we went to cardiff to watch the rugby, wales V canada, and after reading some of the reviews were a little worried about staying here!!
There is no need to worry at all, the hotel is fab!! Clean, comfortable and friendly.
The staff MAREK, EMMA & ERIC were exceptionally great.
Yes it is in the middle of an industrial estate, but it's close enough to the city centre, (beware of the cab drivers over charging though £17.50 to get in to city yet only £8.65 to get back hmmmmmmmm)! and it is very well signposted off the M4 with Waitrose just round the corner!!!

All in all a very good hotel for the money £43 per night for the both of us! And we will definately use this hotel again!!
Thanks to all the staff, cu soon!!

Stayed for 3 nights on a special offer whereby you only pay for 2 nights in August 2008.

The hotel is at the end of a small industrial estate. There is free carparking although the car park is situated on a slope.

The bedrooms are located in a separate building across the car park from the reception building which also contains the bar/restaurant. At first sight this separate building looks as though it could do with a little bit of paint.

The bedrooms however are very clean, look to have been recently refurbished and contain everything you would expect in a budget hotel. Likewise the bathroom was clean (no mould to be seen) and there was plenty of hot water in the shower.

Breakfast costs £6.95 but is substantial as you help yourself to cereals, toast, juice and tea & coffee.

There is some road noise from the A48 situated close by but it is not too instrusive.

The hotel is well located for Cardiff and most of surrounding area. On the deal we had I would rate at good value.
