“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 19 March 2012

Having read some of the negative reviews before staying we as a group were a little concerned about Bubba's Place. Having just spent a night there we can all say we would definately stay at Bubba's again. We came down to Cardiff to watch the rugby so we needed to stay central, have off road parking and most importantly not be too expensive. Bubba's ticked all those boxes for our group. Ok i must agree with some of the other reviews, the rooms could do with some attention and the outside of the building could look better. But to our group those are not really that important, we got a lovely welcome, the staff were brilliant, breakfast was good and they had a bar!!!. Another plus for us whilst staying was that it was St.Patrck's day and they had a party going which everyone was welcome to join.
I must point out to all those people who have written negative & rude comments what were they expecting for the price!!!

We were a little concerned after reading all the reviews but im pleased to say we were pleasantly suprised. Ok its certainly not the ritz but the bedrooms & bathrooms were very clean, the breakfast was lovely, a 24hr bar, and Bubba & Si were very welcoming. its a short and cheap taxi ride from city centre. would definatley go back again!

First the plus side - Cheap, friendly staff, good breakfast, warm. Now the not so good -rooms were the worst I have stayed in the UK, generally run down,unpleasant smell in the corridors,never again! I find it hard to believe it is still in business but obviouslty there is a market.

Totally agree with the negative comment below, if only I had read this before going, I had to stay at this place due it being a rugby weekend everywhere else was full up, it was totally disgusting and the floors were totally filthy. Kettle available with no where to plug in. Television didn't work. Tiny rooms, there's a difference between having a roof over your head and this place. Would rather have had the open air.!!
Would never recommend this place AVOID AVOID AVOID.

The place may not look glamorous, but it is clean and the staff are fantastic and very welcoming. It is a family business that makes you feel very welcome and endeavour to help you in anyway they can. The breakfast was also very good. Would definitely stay here again!! Thanks x

Returned and stayed here for 2 nights for the wales scotland rugby match - once again a fantastic welcome from bubba and his lovely family nothing is too much trouble for them to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Excellent breakfast and plenty of it to soak up the lovely lager that they serve in the 24hr bar. Clean bedding and a comfortable bed. Hope to return again in the very near future - always our first choice when staying in cardiff - cheers Bubba and thanks once again for a fantastic stay.
