Property was extremely clean and felt luxurious without having to pay the money of other establishments. The front desk team were very amicable. My only criticism would be that my hotel room was directly opposite the management office which could get very very noisy at times.

Overall was ok. I wouldn’t recommend the hotel for cleanliness or space. We got a room for three adults and there was a double and a single bed but it was so small. There was hardly any space to move around as well this the bathroom was extremely small. Shower wasn’t great. Hand wash was there but broken so we had to go out and buy one. Was a lot of dust everywhere and the carpets need to be refreshed as there was gum stuck. Too much dust considering it should have been cleaned for us. Staff were lovely especially Chris - was extremely helpful with our requests. Location is great as it’s right next to the station and city centre.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for leaving a review of the hotel. I am sorry that you found the room to be small and not clean. I wish you had spoken to reception regarding the issues so we could have resolved these during your stay. I am glad that the staff and especially Chris were lovely and helpful! We hope we can welcome you back to show you that this is not a regular occurrence at the Clayton Hotel Cardiff. Kind regards,

Nice hotel right in the heart of Cardiff and really good value. The staff are what made it for us, they were so friendly and caring that we felt really comfortable there. Breakfast was great and, again, the staff serving made every effort to ensure we enjoyed it safely. A big thank you to all who work at the Clayton Hotel!
