My partner and I travelled to Cardiff after meeting some new friends in London earlier this year, we both were excited about coming to Cardiff and WOW! what an amazing city, but we stayed at the Royal Hotel and were nervous when we turned up outside as it looks a little old, but the moment we walked through the door it was totally different, the decor was modern on the lower floor, we took the lift to the second floor which was a bit unusual but then FANTASTIC!!! The decor was so boutiquely decorated if that is a word and I hate to stay I am a bit of a perfectionist the check in was great the young guy gave us a great welcome and we went to the room which was modern, clean and well positioned, there was no noise outside we had a massive television didnt want to go out. As a gay couple the city has so much to offer and the hotel was definately gay friendly which made us feel at ease.
We will definately be coming back as the bar was a great place to meet our friends (very modern) drinks average price but we do live in London. Well done to the training team as the staff were brilliant. Cant wait to come back ; )
