The staff were excellent . Was in a great location for getting to town on foot. Seeing how expensive it was for the extras ´ not offered ´ we were disappointed ☹️ Was hoping for a tradional breakfast.

Dirty and uncomfortable

Customer review rating 4.1/5

Bethany W. Solo - 02/12/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Almost all of the surfaces were dirty and full of dust and hairs There’s no plug sockets near the beds Cold and the air conditioning unit was too noisy to sleep with on The beds mattresses were so thin and uncomfortable The floor under the shower was stained a weird brown No hairdryer or body wash or shampoo I know this is a budget hotel but it doesn’t even have the basics, including basic hygiene

Ok if your on a tight budget

danielnelson2014 Family - 02/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Service and price was great it was just the design of the room was a little awkward for a two night stay and even in November the room was very hot at night, also pillows were just terrible unless you like sleeping on a brick. No tea/coffee in room however not bad for £40 a night if your just wanting a sleep for 1 night

Good budget hotel

Good budget hotel. Room however was at the front of the building and window didn’t seem to keep the noise of the busy road out. Check out wasn’t until 12pm however cleaner knocked on door at 9.45am which I feel is unacceptable. Is there not a way that reception can liaise with cleaners so they know when people have checked out?

Kelvin T. Couples - 27/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

For the price it was ok. A lack of kettle, tea nad coffee facilities, shower/hair gel is disappointing. Parking was a nasty shock; I turned up after speaking earlier in the day and THE PARKING SYSTEM HAD CHANGED...IT WAS NOW "JUST PARK" AND I HAD TO GO THROUGH THE RIGMAROLE OF REGISTERING ONLINE (I DON'T KNOW HOW PEOPLE WITHOUT SMArtTPHONE/INTERNET ACCESS WOULD HAVE MANAGED) THERE WAS A BARRIER WITH SPEAKERPHONE....THIS WAS A NEW IDEA NOT EXPLAINED TO ME.....THANKFULLY TYHE LADY AT THE DESK WAS EXCELLENT AND DID IT ALL FOR ME.

Unhelpful check in staff

Customer review rating 4.1/5

Dissatisfied Friends - 26/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

I phoned the hotel to ask about parking and was told there wasn’t any. This was not the case, it is managed a different company , had I known that I’d have booked. The cleaner knocked on the door at 0800 on a Saturday to see if I wanted a towel, then the room wasn’t made up later that day anyway. The room was expensive for what is a very basic room. Whatever the website says, it doesn’t do breakfast, the ‘continental breakfast’ is borderline offensive. In short, there are better hotels.

Fely like a prison cell i was unsure it was even a hotel. Hard yo find and rude staff

Rude staff

Customer review rating 4.1/5

Rhian Friends - 25/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

Disappointing. We have stayed many times and never had any problems. One of the night staff this time was extremely rude when our key card did not work, he needs some serious customer service training. He would not speak to me and only my husband, it was extremely sexist. You need to consider your employment of him.

Clean, compact but budget

Customer review rating 4.1/5

Jooles U. V. Families - 25/11/2019 Confirmed reviews ALL

The reception staff were friendly and gave us a room away from a rowdy group of men. They explained there were no tea and coffe making facilities in the room but there was access to drinks in the reception area. The room was clean but sparse. The toilet was a closet with the sink and shower as part of the main room. The bed was very uncomfortable but you get what you pay for. We chose the hotel for it's location near to The University of South Wales which is only a 5-10 min walk away. The breakfast was a continental style with not a great choice but it was fresh and edible (especially the Welsh tea cakes). Here are a few things I would have liked to have had or things to change. There was no hand soap in the room and no tea making facility. I personally would have paid extra to have these things in the room as an add on. The mirror doesn't have a plug socket nearby so you are unable to style your hair easily. So overall, if yours needs are just a room to lay your head in Cadriff, this is great.

Clean room and handy location

Shower was actually in the room, cot bunk as a second bed. Knees touched the toilet door when sat down. Location is within walking distance of nightlife which is good. Car park is a pain, must book in advance.
