“Charming!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

The Courtfield is situated about a mile from Cardiff station, and can be reached by any bus from stand E2 in the bus station - get off at the third stop in Cathedral Road. The imposing property is a little old-fashioned, but spotlessly clean. My room had no en-suite toilet, but did have a shower and washbasin. Breakfast was very good, ably served by Norman. If your preferences are for sparkling chrome everywhere, this isn't the place for you. If you like 'homely', then it is! The price of the room, even allowing for the lack of full en-suite, was very reasonable, considering breakfast is included. I'd be happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter, as is it on a main road.

A quaint large Victorian house with care taken to keep the character and old-fashioned charm of the house. The hotel is very well situated for central Cardiff, and for the stadium and beautiful greenery around.

Nothing can beat the genuine warmth and welcome of Keith and Norman. Room was lovely and decorated with thought. Breakfast (thank you Keith! lovely - especially your mushrooms). There may be more modern hotels with more facilities, but there are none that we would rather stay in again.

Stay here several times a year for the Rugby.
Keith and Norman continue to offer a highly recommend service.
Five minute walk to the City Centre.
Best Fried Breakfast in Cardiff too..!
The rates are very reasonable too (most places inflate their prices ridiculously on rugby weekends).
Good base for exploring the Capital.

Our party has now stayed at The Courtfield six times when attending the speedway Grand Prix. I would find it difficult to find a more convenient hotel for Cardiff centre at the price. Both Keith and Norman continue to provide a first class service and we are staying again next year.

Had to book a night at short notice - and all of the B and Bs on Cathedral Road seemed either full or wanted two nights. Found the Courtfield after looking at trip advisor - and was glad we did. It is old-fashioned but very comfortable and homely. Nothing corporate or pretentious here, just a warm welcome and genuine courtesy. And got to mention the best cooked breakfast I've had in years. Almost worth the price of the room alone ! If you want somewhere well located and value for money - give this hotel a try.
