“Excellent base for Cardiff Bay”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for two nights as were going to an event at the Millennium Centre. Perfect location for this venue and Cardiff Bay. Room was fine for us (limited toiletries and no hairdryer but reception had one we borrowed) The unlimited breakfast included was good value. Added perk was that car parking was free when validated by reception-a really bonus. Cardiff centre was about 15/20 minutes walk.

The Travelodge has improved this hotel from good to excellent. The beds, pillows and duvet are comfortable.
If you require additional towels, coffee, teas etc, you just ask. The bonus of free parking.
Superb location for visiting Cardiff. Access to the Atlantic Wharf is easy with all it's restaurants.
The Millennium Centre is five minutes walk away. What more could you ask.
You can catch either a bus or train direct into the city which are both frequent.

Stayed for 1 night because we were going to see War Horse in the Millennium Centre. We live in S Wales but this hotel worked out cheaper than taxi fares to our local train station and return train fares, so that's value for money in my book.

Seemed quite strict on check in times, we arrived shortly before 3pm and quite a few were waiting in the lounge area as they had arrived early. Our check in was quick and efficient. Room clean, bed extremely comfortable, bathroom a good size (no loo brush and shower curtain could do with changing though, some soap build up appearing at the hem), nice shower, plenty of hot water. A small complimentary bottle of hand/body wash but there is a Sainsbury Express supermarket opp the Mill Centre so visitors can stock up with necessities there quite cheaply. Did not use any other facilities ie dining room, room service so can't comment.

Added bonus was free parking, your car park ticket is validated by a machine at reception when you leave - not many city hotels that I have been to offer this and is a great saving if you're staying a few days.

I have previously used this Travelodge as the location is particularly convenient. However the standard of comfort and cleanliness has recently improved from acceptable to excellent. It would now be my first choice.

Very good accommodation and very good staff. Great value for money. Very comfy room. Can not fault this hotel at a. Free parking at red dragon centre. Bus stop outside to take you to the centre of Cardiff or. 5 minute walk to millennium centre.

Great location for all Cardiff Bay activities (Doctor Who Experience first on our list) just across from Cardiff Bay station. Very short walk to Millennium Center and TI, little bit further to travel through time & space with The Doctor. Pretend you're dropping in on Torchwood in front of the fountain. Catch the Hop On, Hop Off bus tour in front of the TI. Lots of restaurants along waterfront and something we did not know about beforehand...Ianto's Shrine.

Hotel staff all very friendly and efficient, especially the gentleman who took care of us at breakfast. It was nice having the bar handy after a long day sightseeing. Room very clean and did not seem crowded with a double and 2 singles. I don' t know why a lot of hotels call 2 double beds a family room, our grown kids need separate beds. Our only complaint was a hot, stuffy room. We know AC is not standard outside the US but a fan would have been appreciated.

Room was new and modern had tv attached to wall opp bed
Bed was so comfortable I slept through the night
One thing to note-the casino makes a fan noise throughout the night although when the window was shut you couldn't hear a sound
The staff are very welcoming and friendly
The all you can eat breakfast was amazing - First time we tried it and was well impressed
The hotel is a 2 min walk from the Cardiff bay, and a 10 min walk from the city centre.
