“Travelodge at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

This is an excellent Travelodge. The rooms are perfectly adequate and great value. The location is great for Cardiff Bay and Cardiff city centre. It also offers free car parking. Can't be faulted. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is in just the right spot for all the Cardiff Bay attractions.
Less than 5 minutes walk to the bay and so many bars, cafe's and restaurants.
Dr Who experience is 10 mins walk away too.
Rooms are as you would expect from travel loge though they do have new beds and they are very very nice!
Breakfast is worth the money, though thee are lots of places nearby to eat so don't restrict yourself.

Very impressed with this hotel, this is the first of the newer Travelodges I have stayed at and to be honest i am impressed. The room is airy and the fittings are not luxurious but very functional, beds are superb. TV is just the right size for the room. Bathroom is very well laid out and I love the wet room shower, makes you feel very secure and safe when showering.
Breakfast was very good but could have done with being hotter, though this is the only complaint I have about this hotel. In a good position to get around Cardiff, bus stop right outside.
Nice Job Travelodge !

Very friendly and welcoming reception, efficient but chatty, seemed genuinely interested in me. The room was spacious and airy and the bed was so so comfortable. Although I was going to Cardiff City I prefer to stay in the Bay as it is so easy to drive to and the hotel is only a few minutes walk to train station where there are trains every 15mins into Cardiff.
There is amble parking, which is free if you stay at Travelodge, or if you spend £5 in the Red Dragon Centre.

I've stayed in a few hotels particularly travelodge. Unfortunately no air con but every room equipped with a fan. Excellent beds, good effort travelodge. I'll be back again and for longer.

The site has free parking right next to station to town. Worth trying

This hotel is one of the better maintained of the brand, the staff are efficient, friendly and a great source of local knowledge.
the rooms have been updated in the last year since we last stayed and the beds are incredibly comfortable!
the location of the hotel is superb for Cardiff Bay, positioned in a leisure park so easy access to restaurants, casino, cinema etc. with a speedy train ride or boat trip (£2-£3) to get to Cardiff town itself
however it suffers the curse of all travelodges SINGLE SEX GROUPS, Travelodge need to train their staff better to cope with these guests who are so hell bent on having a good time they give no thought to the other guests at 3am when they come back drunk, screaming, shouting and banging on doors
another trip tainted by this

Spent two nights in the Travelodge Cardiff Atlantic Wharf. The first was hot, sweaty and uncomfortable. The rooms do not have air conditioning - only a window and a fan, and the fan in our room was not in a fully working condition. Every now and again, it would slow down, then grudgingly re-start. We asked for another, but there were none available.

Everyone found sleep difficult due to the hot, airless nature of the room.

The bath was small and not spotless on arrival. Even worse, at breakfast on our first morning, i was handed a stack of crockery and one of the plates was coated in caked-on food waste from a previous meal. It was replaced immediately with an apology, but should not have been offered in the first place.

Breakfast - cereals, cakes and the makings of a full English breakfast - was adequate but not spectacular. Car parking is free, but needing to validate the exit ticket each time you want to drive somewhere can become tiresome.

The main advantage of the hotel is its location, a few minutes walk from all the good things on offer in Cardiff Bay. Other than that, it was overly hot and uncomfortable in the summer heat.

Room Tip: Bring your own fan if warm weather is forecast for Cardiff.

We are really sorry to learn of your disappointed with the temperatures in your room Meo M, unfortunately we do not provide air conditioning in this particular hotel however in an attempt to make our customer’s stay more comfortable we do offer fans as you are aware of. We do expect for our facilities in the rooms and the bar café to be clean; we will ensure our Hotel Manager is made aware of your feedback so they are able to address these issues at the hotel.
