We booked online for the Millennium Lodge for a three night long weekend to attend a wedding on the Saturday. We arrived in Cardiff early afternoon on the Friday and spent ages and ages trying to find the place. Locals had never heard of it. Up and down the street we went looking for the hotel only to discover finally that it is not a hotel at all, just a collection of rooms above a Fast Food Chicken Takeaway with a small door proclaiming to be the ML Lodge.
Having checked in over the road at the Sandringham Hotel we made our way to the ML Lodge. We are a middle aged couple and they allocated us the very top room. There is no lift, the stairs are exceptionally steep, the stairwells are very poorly lit and the smell of cooking fat from the Chicken Take Away below was very strong. Finally - after climbing about a thousand stairs we came to our room. What a disgrace! It was dingy, looked out onto bare walls, the bed was so hard it would have been more comfortable on the floor - however the carpet (!) looked filthy, the bathroom was awful - dingy, dirty and very unwelcoming.
We complained immediately and were offered a room over the road in the Sandringham Hotel, which we accepted.
The Millennium Lodge cannot be called a Hotel in the true sense of the word. There is no reception. There are no facilities - breakfast is served over the road in the Sandringham Hotel. How they ever got a Fire Certificate for the premises I will never know. It was just awful. Don't go there!
