I like the convenience of this hotel, it's located in the main street, i can easy traveling to the main spots of Cardiff. Also, the exterior of the building and interior design are nice but look a little old. For me, the price for the room i stayed was a little high but accepable, i think it may higher in the high season.

My husband and I experienced an enjoyable stay recently at this conveniently situated hotel in the centre of Cardiff. On the whole the staff were obliging and helpful. The check in staff member we dealt with was courteous and friendly. The dining room is a little dated and shabby, however the bedrooms are a good size, clean and comfortable.We enjoyed our stay and would return.

We spent one night here for our daughter's final concert in St David's Hall.We booked a deal for dinner, bed and breakfast. Due to timings we could not have dinner but we were allowed a credit to use in the bar, We ordered food there and the staff laid a table in the dining room. The food was very good and staff could not have been more helpful - especially Luiz. Our room was small but very comfortable so for the rate and the hotel's excellent location we would definitely recommend this hotel.

The hotel room on the third floor was grubby, the plumbing was noisy which woke us several times through the night. The staff were indifferent to our complaint.

There are plenty of good hotels in Cardiff, unfortunately this is not one of them!

On the plus side, the breakfast was good.

Would definitely not return.

The hotel is in a good location opposite the castle. As both Castle Street and, to a lesser extent, Westgate Street are busy roads, I asked for a room overlooking the car park at the back of the hotel. This proved to be a quiet location. Fine if you don't mind much of a view. The twin-bedded room had comfortable beds, lots of wardrobe space and a dated bathroom, although the shower was good. Breakfast was fine.
