Firstly, it's not in Cardiff. Don't book the wrong one by mistake (admittedly this wasn't the hotel's fault). The rooms are small and the carpet was dirty. No shampoo/shower gel minitures are provided, just a dispenser in the shower which i discovered was empty only when I went to put shampoo on my wet hair. The snack bar menu looked pretty dismal, they don't do room service and they don't serve alcohol. I had to walk across a dark service station car park to get to the Toby Carvery which was the ony place selling food, even the service station was closed at 9pm. The bed was pretty uncomfortable.
Breakfast was a disaster: every single table was dirty so i had to clear my own (this at 7.45am on a Thursday so not late). There were no glasses out, no cutlery and the bread didn't fit the toaster so i had to toast one end then the other. I actually overhead a guy saying to his colleagues "am I dreaming or have I just woken up in the worst hotel in the world" so it wasn't just me! Even the taxi driver who picked me up said everyone complains about it! At £52 + £5 for breakfast it's not worth it, travel lodges are far superior. I only stayed here because Wales v Russia meant most of the hotels in Cardiff centre were full but I won't make that mistake again - AVOID!
