What a lovely little hotel in the heart of Cardiff Bay. Loved the decor to our room (5). Not at all corporate, just stylish and clean. The room had great facilities, tea & coffee making facilities, water, sweets (!), iron with board, hair dryer and fan. The bed was very comfortable too! The best thing however, and what really made... More

We revisited this small hotel and were warmly welcomed and offered refreshments. The room was large with a very modern bathroom. Breakfast was a real treat and set us both up for the day. Highly recommended if you wish to be by all the attractions at the Bay with a short bus, tram or boat ride to the city centre.

I stayed here last night for one night, as I was visiting the Senedd for work. The location is fantastic - and my room, overlooking the Millenium Centre, had beautiful furniture, lovely calming decor and a nice whirlpool bath. Jolyon was the perfect, welcoming, friendly and helpful host. My hot Welsh breakfast included lovely local Welsh bacon, sausage and black... More

I stayed at this hotel last Saturday. We came to watch the rugby and stayed at Jolyons. Jonathan booked us in, he is a lovely man and very helpful. The hotel is very quirky. My only negative about this hotel is there was a bath and no shower in our room! It is very clean. The breakfast is good and... More
