“Tired”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

Hotel entrance handy for station etc. Lift very grubby and same applied to carpets in public areas and room. Ours was noisy from machinery (heating/boilers?). Considering city location external noise from pubs etc was minimal and extremely convenient for public transport

Stayed in this travel lodge many times, however since last staying in June 2013 it has been redecorated, lovely comfortable king size beds, new curtains and carpets, smelt clean and fresh from the moment you walked in. Friendly staff from the second you arrive with quick check in. Stayed her for show at motorpoint arena perfect location not even 5 mins walk to there or shops. Carpark just around the corner and wetherspoons next door. Couldnt ask for more will continue to visit.

Visit cardiff quiet often for work. Thought of giving it a try especially because of the deal.
The room though clean are very very basic and compact. I know i should have expected that for the price paid but next time would spend a bit more and upgrade for a better hotel.
I guess can be good for people on budget just not for me.

If you want a hotel with easy access to everything in Cardiff This is for you
Millenium Stadium 400 yards
St Davids Shopping Centre 400 yards
CIA Moterpoint Arena 400 yards
Cardiff Castle 300 yards
Railway and Bus Station 100 yards
Cardiff City Stadium and Sophia Gardens Cricket 1 mile

Entrance is off the main thoroughfare - I went on Sunday Night so there was little noise. What it is like on a Friday / Saturday Night I dont know because there are several large late night pubs next to the hotel.

Booking in was easy and quick - on way to the room, however, I had to pass trolleys of dirty bed linen and cleaners being shouted at by the supervisor. The carpets in the corridor either need a deep clean or replacing.
Room was the usual Travelodge fare - clean - tidy and frugal. TV Remote was missing but was replaced in 5 minutes by reception.
As said earlier, despite it closeness to the railway station it was really quiet and I had a good nights sleep.
With a bit of a tidy up this could be a really good hotel and I would recommend it.

This is the second time that I have stayed here and you can definitely see that they have made improvements in all areas. The room was a very clean, with a comfortable bed. The staff were great. A* gr

I've stayed in Travelodges before and have always been reasonably satisfied with the service they offer but this was the first occasion that I'd say that I was a bit disappointed.

We arrived in Cardiff at about lunchtime and were pleased to see that it wasn't far from the train station and the city centre and we went in to see if we could drop our bags off as we wanted to see some of the city before we went to a show that evening but we were told that they didn't offer a luggage facility. This was quite annoying as we then had to drag our bags around with us until check in time which we were incorrectly told that we could check in at 2:30. When we went to check in, it was the same person on the desk as before and he wasn't particularly welcoming although to be fair, there was a queue. We were given a room on the third floor but when we got there we discovered that the room hadn't been cleaned and there was still the wet towels on the bed from the previous guests. I went down to address this matter, leaving my sister upstairs and was given a different room. Obviously this room hadn't been set up for twin occupancy like we had requested so we had to wait for someone to bring the bedding for the extra bed.

The double bed was comfortable but unfortunately the hideaway bed that is used when you book a family room wasn't at all comfortable. Not only that but the smoke alarm seemed to make the odd beep from time-to-time. A combination of this and the uncomfortable bed meant that I did not get ANY sleep that night.

That following morning we asked about luggage storage and were helpfully directed to the tourist information centre by the man working on the desk. Quite why his colleague that was working that previous day couldn't tell us that defeats me?

I gather that the hotel had recentely been refurbished but there was a loose screw in the entrance door and the bathroom door didn't lock.

The room was reasonably priced and was in a great location and it is that that stops me from giving this hotel a lesser mark.

Room Tip: As for a room at the back of the hotel as they don't look onto the main street.

Stayed one night whilst we saw a show at the Motorpoint Arena. Brilliant location and everything was accessible. Even caught a bus outside to the Doctor Who Experience. The room was clean and today, everything we needed was in there. The bed was exetremely comfy - best nights sleep I've had in a long time.

Reception were lovely to us at check in and check out. Offered us some ideas for a nice place to eat too! Thankyou for a lovely stay.
