Having read other reviews I was very wary of staying here but in all honesty, given our experience, I am struggling to understand some reviews on here.
We stayed for 2 nights. Location of hotel is excellent - just a 10 minute walk from train and bus station. Also close to hand is a Tesco just across from hotel which is useful for any bits and bobs as well as a restaurant and cinema. Town centre is a 10 - 15 minute walk including the castle.
The room we had was very large, clean and comfortable. The staff were excellent - very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was basic but good - cereals,toast,boiled eggs, cheese,fresh fruit and yoghurts.
At the end of the day its a budget chain and I would urge other reviewers to remember this. You won't get 5 star facilities at 3 star prices :)
Overall a good hotel, well located and worth the money. If were going back to Cardiff, we would have no hesitation in booking here again
