“Not so keen”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2008

Was quite disappointed in this place: although friendly on the phone when I booked, the person who let me in (at night) had clearly had a bit to drink, and was a bit creepy. This creepiness was compounded by the fact that the lock on the my bedroom door did not work. The bathroom (across the hall) for my private use had only been minimally cleaned -- if at all from the previous guest. The television did not work. Breakfast was okay, but I was clearly discouraged from ordering a full breakfast. The only speedy service I got was from the owner (I presume), who bounded down the corridor when I came to finalize the bill. The overall impression was slightly creepy, irresponsible, and greedy.

Stayed November 2008

We had a great stay here, we had the family room with 2 great double beds in a very spacious room. (en suite) The breakfasts were substantial and we had tea,coffee and biscuits supplied every day in our room. It is also very well placed, with a short walk through the park to the main street in Cardiff. We would definately use this hotel again.

My bathroom which was across the hall from my bedroom could not have been cleaned since the previous occupant.The floor was covered in hairs and dead midges on my arrivalThe toilet was in need of a dose of bleach.The bed sheets were clean but the skirting boards were filthy,not just dusty.My son and his girlfriend shared a room with a curtain rail but no curtains.We were so stunned we could not complain,just spent as little time as possible in the premises.We even gave breakfast a miss and went to Mc Donalds.Reasonably priced but in need of a good spring clean

I was greeted by very friendly hosts in the comfortable surroundings. My room was great. The rooms are small but very clean and well maintained. I loved my stay there on my first trip to Wales.
