Just come back from Cardiff and had a cracking stay, The Beverley is what you pay for: comfortable room, good welcome, friendly staff, cheap drinks and pub food.
If the menu says £3-£8, Michelin stars are doubtful. £50 to stay isn't going to appear in Mr & Mrs Jones but what the Beverley does, it does very well.
I was made to feel like a local (of whom there seemed to be a bundle of happy characters with nothing bad to say about the place) and the staff couldn't help enough - they like a natter about the great things to do in the area and gave me many reasons to come back - not just to Cardiff but the Beverley itself.
The hotel and pub is full of happy customers and the atmosphere is really friendly and that comes down to the staff and the manager who were really helpful and even put up with me coming home late without my key! Ooops, sorry manageress!
I've read another review here for about the same time and all I can think is it's from a travel bore. If you want 5 star book the St Davids. But if you want a real place where locals and staff are happy to mingle and talk like friends, come and stay here. It does exactly what you'd expect - comfortable, 10 minute walk to town, great atmosphere, safe and friendly...all for £50, bargain!
This part of Cardiff, according to friends who've visited is pretty expensive but there's loads to do locally in Pontcanna and The Beverley is the perfect place to spread your wings. The happy staff made it easy to stay and hard to leave. Thanks...you should get a raise!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- If you're looking for hotels in Cardiff, our lodge offers budget accommodation close to the heart of the city. So whether you're here for business or pleasure, you'll be near enough to all the action, yet happily away from the hustle and bustle. The Millennium Stadium is just a 15-minute walk away, as is Cardiff Arms Park, and attractions such as Cardiff Castle and Cardiff Bay are also within easy reach. While you're sightseeing, how about stepping into the future - or the past - by visiting the Dr Who Experience? Of course, you won't need a Tardis to get to us because the M4 is on the doorstep, and excellent rail and plane connections are just a taxi-ride away. As for the lodge itself, our classic Victorian building was once a rich man's townhouse. Today it's anything but expensive to stay here. With a comfy bed and a cool pint or plate of hearty pub-food available in the pub downstairs, you'll find it offers a great-value base for exploring the Welsh capital. ... more less
