For the price paid there is not much I can find wrong with this hotel...easy access from the motorway and easy access into the centre of Cardiff too. There is adequate free parking, and it is in close proximity to Toby Carvery. Rooms are nice clean and quiet...a good choice for a weekend break.

Room Tip: ask for higher floor

We stopped here for a night in late July and chose to do so again a couple of weeks later when travelling in the area.
It is easy to locate, clean and quiet, apart from the fire door in the corridor which closes loudly.
There was a problem in our room in that the window frame did not actually fit the wall and there was daylight above it (room 218). The room would also benefit from another waste bin by the tea and coffee to save using the one from the bathroom.
We didn't eat here as it is so close the the Toby Carvery we walked there.
Each time we asked for extra pillows and these were quickly provided.
A good value option and we will return if in the area again.

So glad you had an enjoyable time at the Ibis Cardiff Gate Hotel. We very much appreciate the feedback and we hope to see you again soon. But I was sorry to learn that there was a maintenance issue in your bedroom. Thank you for letting me know, I will pass it on to my maintenance team. Kind regards, Jacek

Only one complaint the pillow was hard! Never stayed in a 2 star before, usually 4-5, OMG I WAS IMPRESSED! Lots of space & natural light, comfortable room temp,large comfy bed, spacious bathroom, with a cracking walk-in shower, loads of storage, flat screen TV, dressing table/desk, well appointed mirrors and power points, quiet, plenty of tea & coffee.
There were no designer bits & bobs, state of the art deco or luxurious soft furnishing, BUT it was clean, comfortable and very pleasant and only £34!
Would I stay again, most definitely! From now on the first hotels I will look at will be the ibis, whenever I go away over night, which is at least once a month.
Don't be put off by the 2star! I've stayed in loads of hotels this is the first time I've written a review because I can't get over how much money I've saved and what value I received!

I’m very grateful that you could take time to leave us your thoughts and write a review. I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope to see you again in the very near future. Please note that we do have 24 hour reception on duty, should you need more pillows, tea and coffee, do not hesitate to come and ask. On the other hand, we are in the process of changing all our pillows to the higher quality, in 1/3 of the bedrooms we managed to change them already. Kind regards, Jacek
