This is a functional old style hotel that allows you to get a quick freshen up and get out into Cardiff and then come back and get your head down for the night. It fulfils that function more than adequately at a fair price.
The location is fantastic, right in the centre of Cardiff itself on one of the pedestrianised roads where a lot of the pubs, clubs, restaurants and bars are near. It is also extremely close to the Millennium Stadium (almost a stone's throw).
I stayed one night. Booked a single room. Got a good greeting from reception and was given room 302 which is right on the top floor and was possibly a family room rather than a single. Even though the room was at the front looking onto the street, I found it to be peaceful with the street noise sounding quite distant. The bath had steaming hot water and good water pressure. The room has a flat screen TV.
Breakfast was okay, nice to see full English breakfast being served to order rather than buffet. There's definitely some character in at least one of the (older female) staff members in the morning to put a smile on your face after a heavy night out.
Serves a purpose hotel and scores highly on location ... wouldn't ever take my wife for a weekend away here though. Be warned, there are many many stairs and no lift.
