After a very shaky start I would recommend this hotel just a little advice DO NOT FORGET YOUR I.D!! Having drove for 5 hours thru the Friday night traffic around Bristol and all the way to Cardiff on arrival at the hotel armed with confirmation printed out thru BOOKINGS.COM with the same visa card as printed on confirmation via email I was told no photo i.d no booking (oh, unless I happened to have a utility bill on me!) Not impressed to say the least.. Having eventually spoke to the Manager at home! some 30 mins after I was allowed to stay in my £188 for 2 nights Family room.
Car park, large, well spaced, clean with good lighting and security.
Reception, clean with useful vending machines. Hotel general appearance very good and clean. Room 8 we had, sold as a Family quad room. It was there bog standard double room with 2 extra beds put in which meant no room at all to move, my only frustration was I did send an email asking if the kids extra beds were proper beds or zbeds! I got no reply from them. Room was clean and the double bed comfortable but one of the 2 kids beds was unsleepable.
After my problems on arrival all members of staff were friendly and helpful. The eatery next door was good value for money and was also clean and tidy. I would recommend this hotel to all users.
