Reviewed 24 August 2013

Just spent 2 nights at this hotel, paid £36 per night & it was an absolute bargain. The hotel was spotlessly clean, rooms decent size with nice bathroom. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the car park & yes, if the window is open you do get some traffic noise from the service area opposite but through the night this was minimal. The room did get rather warm & there is no air con but then it is a budget hotel. Only dealt with staff at check in/out but both times they were efficient & friendly.Would definitely recommend for an overnight or 2 night stay if looking for a no frills but clean & tidy hotel.

I've had many satisfactory stays at Ibis Cardiff Gate... you get what you pay for - a budget hotel conveniently located within half mile of the M4 and handy for travelling into Carfiff and Newport.

WIFI is free, the breakfast is filling and the beds are comfortable. Which is all that you are paying for.

I've never had an issue with noise yet always ask to stay on the ground floor.

Staff are always very helpful and efficient.

Room Tip: Just be reasonable in your expectations - if you are paying for a budget hotel, you don't get th...

Stayed here for two nights in August, no air conditioning, noisy and no one available when I rang reception to tell them at five o clock in the morning about people smoking and noisy outside the window. The car park across the road has boy racers.

The Ibis is an excellent choice in the Cardiff area - check-in is quick and efficient, staff friendly and helpful.
There is now free WiFi - the new Ibis beds are excellent, my room was clean and well maintained - great!
really good value for money.
Highly recommended!
