It is good value for money

The room was warm, clean, good large double bed, although I asked for a single standard. For the location, for the fact that you get free wifi in the room, for the fact that you get breakfast included in the price of the room I would recommend the location as it is good value for the money paid.

Central location for any Cardiff events

Booked into the hotel, staff from beginning to checking out, friendly and helpful. Ideal location for any events in Cardiff, parking, had to use NCP car park opposite the Millenium stadium, but half price when using this hotel, bargin. Only draw back on the night we stayed, disco till 5-30 in the morning, but no big deal.

Practical place to sleep

Staff friendly and helpful. No lift. On a walking street meaning that the taxi can't drive to the door.

Good value, though not perfect

Overall, I liked my stay here. I booked a single room but ended up with a nice, big double which has its own good-sized bathroom. It was all very clean and reasonably quiet, and the location is excellent, really close to Cardiff Central Station, not a far walk from Cardiff Castle, and in the midst of many restaurants and shops. The breakfast is yummy, too. The cons: supposedly there's free wi-fi throughout the hotel, but my hotel room was at the end of the hall and I got no reception whatsoever. If I walked a few rooms down or to the lobby I could usually get a decent signal, but it was awkward and inconvenient to not be able to be in my own room. Also, maybe it's just me but I found the beds hard and super uncomfortable. I was glad I had two beds, because this allowed me to sleep on top of one duvet and use the other as a blanket.

Visit Cardiff Castle, which is huge and old and not too far away. And I highly recommend taking the bus down to the bay, which is absolutely beautiful.

Best value for money

I would recommend it to a friend. It was more than expected when I saw my room. Good room size, good service and very helpful and friendly staffs. Could hear movement when people walking and talking on the stairs, corridor and from the next room snoring! Poor floor and wall noise insulation. Otherwise it was a nice hotel to stay. No regrets.

Central Cardiff on a budget

Short distance to Cardiff Castle, shopping, restaurants, night life and the train station. Central neighborhood can be noisy at night. Staff was helpful. The hotel was clean but hasn't been updated for a long time. My single room was tiny, barely room to turn around. The mattress was thin and lumpy. Good English breakfast. Definitely a budget stay if you aren't looking for much.

Decent, well located hotel

While certainly not a glamorous hotel with dated decor, nor particularly luxurious with it's slightly small rooms and aging furniture, but it was functional, well located (within easy walking distance of Cardiff Central station, the Millenium Stadium, the castle, and Queen Street for shopping). The staff were friendly, the reception desk was manned all night, and there was a decent breakfast service included.
