booked this place randomly because i was looking for a cheap place to crash with 5 friends for a night on the tiles in cardiff.
The lady on the phone was very helpful and friendly and the price at £28 pounds each for bed and a fry up i found very resonable, so i booked.
When we arrived we realised how close we were to the town, so this is something really great if you are wanting to be close to the nightclubs, you can see the millenium stadium as you get close to the hotel.
when we parked in the carpark round the back, we were rather worried...barbed wire all around the walls, a grey building with a dirty old matress around the back, my friend was making me doubt myself.
as you walk into the hotel, you do get a feeling that this place is not going to be a good experiance, well that is very far from the truth, the decore is very very old fashioned, like it reminds me of some kind of victorian house, but you then realise how clean this place is, how friendly the staff are and you realise this is the theme of the hotel, it gives it so much character and i thought to myself, its a little gem. Theres so much to look at.
we stayed up on the 2nd floor, pretty easy just to walk up to, got into our room and i must say, i kept my friends back whilst i peered through the door, and as i looked inside, i couldnt have been more impressed, i pulled all the covers back, and they were the cleanest white sheets ive ever seen, the bathroom was lovely, nice little complimentary shampoo and conditioner, not a bad view out the window, clean carpets, all surfaces polished. You cannot fault the place.
got a taxi into the cubbing part of the city because no girl can walk any distance in heels (well not us girls) cost around 5 pound which is pretty good.
breakfast is at 8 until 9am and u have such a massive selection, and a lush lush fry up, we did drink endless glasses of juice to settle the hangover!
i would deffinately stay here again, i felt so welcome and we had no problems what so ever!
