Reviewed January 22, 2013

Stayed overnight at the Cefn Mably at short notice during the snow. Room was made available immediately. It was very comfortable with good facilities such as flat screen TV and tea/coffee. Rooms nicely decorated with crisp white linen and cushions. Cleanliness was excellent in bedroom and ensuite.The room was warm and inviting.
Staff are excellent, polite and friendly service and the food was cheaply priced and very good. All in all a great experience and I felt the rooms were great value for money. I have stayed in hotels in Cardiff for double the price which have been awful. I would recommetd this hotel to anyone.

Was recommended to try the Cefn Mably Hotel for a meal ( new owners). "Wow excellent value for money. Food was way about the standed one would have expected. Greeted by young man at the bar who was very polite and pleasant. Huge menu so much choice, I had Gammon it was excellent and boy oh boy what a portion. Others in my group tried the "Chicken Cymru" all of them praised it saying how tasty it was. We were interupted a few times by the bar man checking all was ok and could he get us drinks - "great service". Well done we will be back for sure.
Huge value for money and great service thank you.

Stayed at the Cefn Mably Hotel for 2 nights (Sat/Sun), in order to undertake a trip to Lundy Island on the Paddle Steamer Waverley. We travelled by train and the hotel was approximately 15 minutes walk from the station (Penarth). Unless you wish to eat at the hotel, other restaurants and pubs are all in the vicinity of the station and are a 20 minute walk. Check-in took place at the bar and was pleasant and efficient. Our bedrooms were clean and comfortable, but the en-suite bathrooms were a little dated and in need of some refurbishment. We paid the extra £5.00 for breakfast and this was a well presented full cooked breakfast, along with juice, toast/preserves and coffee/tea (other options were available but we did not ask what these were). When we got back to the hotel on the Saturday evening (at approx 2315), music/karaoke was in full swing and was very audible in the bedrooms, however, we had been warned about this when booking, so no complaints on that score. The music stopped shortly before midnight and by 0030, the hotel was extremely quiet. The hotel was in darkness when we returned at a similar time on the Sunday evening. We got an excellent rate by booking via Laterooms and for the price paid considered the Cefn Mably to be excellent value for money. Would stay at the Cefn Mably again without hesitation.

I've staid in this hotel for three nights, while on a business trip. I found this place neat and cosy, according to the price i paid. The room was quiet and i had a really good night sleep. Food in the bar seems always fresh.The location of the hotel was the only issue, as it took me 15-20min to reach Cardiff center. All in all, it definitely worth the price.

I had a couple of nights here and enjoyed every minute of it. The place was clean and tidy, the staff were polite and efficient, the food was tasty and plentiful and there was a wide variety of good value drinks at the bar. It proved good value for money and in a convenient location, just a 10 minute walk from Cosmeston Lakes and 10 minute walk to the train into town. Needless to say, I'll come here again next time I am in Cardiff!

Stayed for 2 nights at this hotel (2 adults and 1 child) - It was very good value for money. The rooms were basic but very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and it is excellently situated in Penarth with plenty of parking space. Beds very comfortable. Bar food was excellent - taste and price. We were in Penarth visiting family and would definately go back and would highly recommend.
