We were visiting relatives in Cardiff and really just wanted a pied-a-terre for the weekend, so we did not require restaurant facilities.
This is really a motel, not a hotel, because the accommodation block is physically separate from reception. As such, do not expect 24 hour support in form of a receptionist or concierge on site (we acknowledge there was probably a number to ring in emergencies). For guests, rowdy behaviour in the middle of the night, whether in the accommodation block or in the car park, can be an intimidating experience. We were disturbed on both nights (Friday and Saturday).
Despite this, we found the accommodation clean and reasonably comfortable. We have one comment on comfort, however. There is undoubtedly background heating in the accommodation block, but in our room there was also a wall heater that we were able to use in the evenings. However, it did not work first thing in the morning. When we mentioned this to the staff at reception, we were told that it was "on a timer". Although it would be unreasonable to expect all day and night, we felt it should have been available maybe between 7am and 9am at least.
On the plus side, the bed was comfortable, all facilities we needed worked, and we appreciated the feeling of security the shutters (controlled from inside) gave us.
All in all, it was fair value for money, and would recommend it, if only with the above reservations.
