“Ideal for over night stay.”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Stayed here for two nights in February 2013. We were welcomed by friendly efficient staff, and given a complementary newspaper. The whole hotel was very clean and tidy, the bed extremely comfortable and the shower hot. With a TV and hostess tray, all you need for a couple of days' stay. The hotel is conveniently situated close to the M4, about 15 minutes drive to Cardiff city centre. Being on the services, there is a WH Smith, Starbucks, petrol station and Waitrose across the car park. Ample free parking.

We stayed at the Ibis on 08 February 2013 - two adults and two teenage children. The rate was very good with breakfast and we stayed in two rooms. They were clean and breakfast was very good and very quiet for a Saturday and Sunday morning - 9.00am. When we arrived we realised that we did not have S4C on our television although it was listed. The young man on reception was unable to help. The following morning we asked whether it would be possible to get S4C on the TV in order for us to watch the game in Welsh upon our return to the hotel later that afterfnoon.
When we arrived back at 4.30pm they had managed to get S4C for us. Many thanks for the lady who helped with this request.
Basically this was a nice hotel - a little difficult to find but well worth it. The Toby Carvery was good value for £5.99. We will return quite soon I hope.

This is a clean and friendly hotel that has no frills but does what it says on the tin. The reception staff are really friendly and helpful and the breakfast has plenty of choice. For the price this was good enough for what we wanted, which was someone to sleep. There is plenty of parking and the service station is bang opposite should you need anything.

Ibis hotel in Cardiff Gate is a must if you need a quiet, comfy, relaxing stay. We arrived yesterday 2nd of Feb and were met by a lovely man on reception. The check in was quick and simple and we were directed to our room on the middle floor 224. Room was imaculate, could not fault it. Hotel had no issue with what time we arrived in this morning which is always a bonus. Bed very very comfy! Check out was again quick and simple. Would definatley stay here again and would recommend.

Room Tip: 224 is a good room

Stayed here so close to a client the next morning due to weather. Arrived 10pm ish but was made welcome. Booking in process was simple and quick. Directed to room using the lift. Standard motel type of room with double bed, desk, TV and en-suite. Slightly dated but no complaints. Good night sleep with a simple check out.

Room Tip: Get a room as close to louge area so you get the wifi

This hotel is supposed to have a bar but this is not so. It has been here some time so I do not understand why a bar is still at the 'application' stage. No soft drinks on sale but coffe is readily available.
Breakfast is far too expensive at £7.95 and the cooked food is unacceptable. Better to choose the all-day breakfast at the nearby Toby Inn £3.99 !
Room clean and bed very comfortable. However the TV went down with the snow and until the assistant manager arrived no-one had the inclination to cure the Sky Box reception - or call maintenance. Recompense was a free breakfast but see above for the quality !
The price we obtained well in advance was very good and better than Premier Inn.
The staff, all East European, were very pleasant but there was no sign at all of a hotel manager if problems arose.

Room Tip: Choose ground floor but not at the front since vans back up to the windows at night and leave their...
