Just a quick note to say if anyone has trouble getting hotel accommodation in Cardiff for any of the big events during the summer I know that UWIC has rooms available to let. They are standard student rooms so not huge but are ensuite and if you can't get anything else they will be clean and tidy and somewhere decent to sleep!!
Each year they are available from the end of June to the begining of Sept
I know its no good for those of you looking for accommodation for 6th October but knowing what Cardiff can be like for trying to find accommodation when any big event is on I just thought I would mention it.
