“Overnight stay”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

I stayed here back in June last year - just a quick overnight stop visiting a friend but a lovely stay. Super comfy beds and lovely bathroom! Would definitely stay again! Really easy to find and a close walk into town for food and drinks!

Stayed here for work and I was very pleased.
When I checked in Sarah was the first receptionist I have come across who greeted me with a warm welcome and a friendly smile, check in was quick and easy and arrangements made for a early breakfast.
Room was very clean and well maintained.
Looking forward to my next stay here.

Just around the corner from the train station, only trick is you will have a hard time finding the Best Western signage from a distance! Stayed for 2 nights while visiting Cardiff. Good location to start explorations for central Cardiff, seemed very popular spot for hen nights, local night life on the Friday too.
Nice breakfast.

Easy access from car with discount parking. Cardiff rail station is a block away.

Located right at the base of St Mary's it is only a couple of blocks walk to the castle. A lot of shopping, restaurants and clubs are nearby. The number 6 bus to the bay waterfront area ( Dr Who Experience) is just behind the hotel.

The staff was friendly. The room was great, It was clean, modern and had a nice comfy firm bed. Coffee water pot for the morning. Breakfast options nearby. Lovely weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Rooms on lower floors facing the train tracks might be noisy. We heard very little sound from them...

This hotel is well located and very good value for money.
No on site parking but parking nearby and hotel has an agreed rate
Station 2 minutes away
Bars and restaurants 2 mins away
Rooms clean but ask for a room away from railway line
Pleasant bar and good food served
Wifi is very good compared to other local hotels
Air con in rooms also very good
Pleasant staff
I would recommend and stay again myself without any hesitation. I have stayed at the holiday inn which is about 5 mins from this hotel and there is no comparison, the Maldron beats every aspect....

Location is fantastic - 2 minute walk (if that) from the train station. Across the road is all your bars and mill lane which is known for the cocktail bars, yet as your in the middle of everything I have never known a room so quiet when going to bed.

We had breakfast here both mornings and I must say it was beautiful, so much choice of everything and all very fresh all the time, highly recommend you have the breakfast on your booking included.

Rooms are very nicely decorated and just perfect for what we needed with a very comfortable bed too.

I for one will be staying here again when I visit Cardiff!

I stayed 2 nights at the Maldron Hotel in April. It is a very nice hotel located a very short walk from the train station. It is also only a quick walk into town for sights like Cardiff Castle, the National Museum and the Millenium Stadium.

The room was a good size and the bed was very comfortable. I did not eat at the hotel as there are plenty of pubs, bars and eateries in the main street. I would be happy to recommend the Maldron Hotel to anyone going to Cardiff
