Reviewed 12 November 2013

Stayed at this B and B earlier this year as a one night stop over for a family celebration.
Booked two rooms and paid less than £80.
Didn't take the breakfast option as we went to the nearby Toby carvery.
All in all it was a very comfortable night, rooms pleny big enough for a couple and my experience of the staff was that they were helpful without being overpowering.
I would definately recommend this hotel for an overnight stay and would consider it again for another overnight stay

A budget hotel situated in motorway services approximately 5 miles from Cardiff. The rooms are small but ok, the beds are the biggest issue though, really uncomfortable with mattress toppers and pillows like concrete.
Breakfast was also ok - good choice.
Hotel bar was a fridge under the reception desk

This is a really excellent budget hotel. Good rooms, spotlessly clean and courteous and efficient service - an ideal base for business trips into the city.
Originally built as a Holiday Inn (I'm told) so it's of a better build standard that the standard Ibis.

Stayed at the Ibis Cardiff Gate after a long 12 hour shift at work to save the long drive home.
Check in was quick and easy and the person friendly.
The room 305 met my requirements, clean any comfy.
Left early the next morning before breakfast.

It does what it says on the tin. Room was clean enough but nothing great, staff friendly and overall good value. The only thing I would say don't bother with breakfast as its not worth the money, dried up and tasteless better off going motorway services!!!
