Comfortable stay. Two main points : 1) wifi connectivity is not great and 2) the shower head was a bit clogged. Other than that it was actually a good stay and I will stay again.

Suited its purpose, VERY helpful staff

Unfortunately the car parking has been contracted out to JustPark, which wasn't made apparent to me upon booking. I was accompanying my disabled friend to a function that evening, & the car park was completely booked out, which meant we had to park elsewhere (next door, in the Novotel as it happened, but it was a disappointment for my disabled friend). The reception staff on arrival, however, were VERY helpful, & allowed me to drive up to the front door so my friend could get into the hotel without struggling with bags. We were thankful for that, so please pass on my compliments to the staff on 12 November 2021. The room was perfunctory; it's there for its purpose at the end of the day. Slightly uncomfortable mattresses, but sleep was had. Great location, however, as Tyndall Road is a short step into the city centre if that's where you're heading; we were going further afield, so it didn't particularly count in this case. The price ought to have been cheaper, I believe, as it was only £20 more to have stayed in the Novotel next door, with upgraded facilities.

staff unhelpful and ignorant

Alan Couples - 23/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Had problems with the barrier to the car park even though we had booked it and had a code to get in and out, asked staff for help and all they kept saying was "we have been busy" we had to wait out in the cold, the service was terrible. We only had 1 pillow in the room, we did ask for more, but was told "no, too busy too get them"

Great location, very clean

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Olivia Couples - 21/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

It was perfect for what we wanted - somewhere to get ready for an evening in Cardiff, within easy walking distance to the centre and a bed for the night. Rooms are super basic but have everything you need! Really clean, comfy bed, good shower. Would have given 10/10 but there was one issue - the plug sockets were in the corner of the room (there were only two of them!) and while they were by a desk, they were nowhere near a mirror making blow drying hair, charging phones etc. really awkward.

Lovely staff, nice location

Lucy Solo - 21/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Good overall price and location is around a 10 minute walk from the city centre. The room is very basic (ps there’s no hair dryer) but it did what it needed to do… Strange room layout but the staff were all really friendly and I would recommend if you’re on a budget!

Just the hotel I needed

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Brian Solo - 19/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I needed somewhere to lay my head after attending a concert in St David's Hall. This hotel was perfect for that. A comfortable bed, not to far from the venue, reasonably quiet and without havign to pay for all the frills I wasn't going to use anyway.

Well located

The rooms were a bit smaller than we expected. The front office staff especially shanker and Meghan was very friendly and helpful.

Great location and perfect for a one or two night stay

Wayne Couples - 16/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Smooth check in easy parking only a Tenner on just park in advance so fifty quid for parking and hotel in central Cardiff ideal, rooms are basic but more than adequate for what you need and the bed was comfortable and shower was very powerful will most definitely use agian when visiting Cardiff :)

A very basic hotel but clean, efficient check in, easy parking and very close to walk into town.

Overnight stay as trains not reliable at present

Overnight stay as trains home are being cancelled and didn’t want to risk getting stranded in Cardiff. Also meant a bit of a lie in as hotel 2 mins from work.

Disappointing my room was not cleaned in the 5 nights I stayed . Very concerning

Very basic

Customer review rating 2.5/5

S J. Friends - 13/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

There were gaps in the skirting boards. The bathroom fan and light were broken. The shower thermostat was not working therefore the temperature could not be turned down, and was too hot to use. The paint was peeling off the bathroom ceiling, so much that I had bits in my boots by the morning.

Wasn't expecting much really for the price and it did state budget!! Rotten smell from the toilet along with luke warm water! Dead spiders and dust floors were bogging my feet were black . The beds are extremely uncomfortable. Only plus is not far from the city centre however I would not stay here again

Avoid at all cost.

Clements250 20/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

Room was the size of the shoebox; interior design is cross between public toilets in the 80s and army baracks. Picture on the website was clearly taken with super wide angle lens - the real size of the room is probably 2.5x3m. Table’s dimensions are probably 60x30cm. Near the main road, very noisy and stuffy. Windows only open one inch. Awful squeaky bed with thin plastic mattress. Rude and miserable reception staff. Not “4 min away from the train station” either - more like 30 min. Avoid at all costs.
