Stayed at this hotel last week and had a very enjoyable stay. It is a Victorian hotel which is charming. We were lucky enough to be allocated a room at the front of the hotel which had a bay window, four poster bed and a newly fitted bathroom. I don't have a lot more to add to the previous reviews....

Very welcoming hotel breakfast amongst the best I've ever had, nice clean comfortable room, very convenient and walking distance for the city centre, millennium stadium and Swales stadium but in a nice leafy part of Cardiff with several excellent pubs, restaurants and coffee shops very close by. Only downside is front rooms are not double glazed and you can hear...

We booked this over the phone at reasonably short notice because of a family funeral in Cardiff. I spoke to David on the phone and as he was very helpful and they had all the rooms we needed, I decided to look no further and book it. We had 3 rooms - the family room and 2 doubles. All were...

Great Hotel in a fantastic location. Start off with a wonderful breakfast that offers a full range of delectables. Then head out the door to a side street leading to a gate that opens to a park entrance. A nice stroll through the park leads to a door adjacent to Cardiff castle. After visiting the sites, head back to a...

This is a private family owned hotel, largely bed and breakfast. The hotel is very conveniently located at the back of Bute Park (and a stones throw from Glamorgan Cricket Club). It is on the main Cathedral Road which means it is in easy access of the city centre (a ten minute walk in fact). The hotel is very clean,...

What a grand place to stay!
