4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

The hotel itself was very easy to find (I arrived by train). Check-in was swift and the gentleman on the desk was very polite and professional.

The room itself was very basic but as I stayed in it for just sleeping I cannot complain at that! Sleep quality was fine, the only annoyance was the slamming of doors from other guest on my floor (I felt the vibrations from the room 5 doors down).

I didn't eat in the hotel (there are plenty of options for both breakfast and dinner in the city centre).

Overall, for £70 for 2 nights, I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap get-away to Cardiff.

I don't normally write reviews but I am left with no choice! Upon arrival the staff tried to charge us more money for a room we had already paid prior to arrival! The rooms are not suitable for a family, the beds are rock hard, 1 pillow each, showers are in the bedroom, no lock on toilet door, no Cuboard space for hanging items of clothing and 3 hangers in room!! no tea or coffee making facilities, no travel hair drier, no travel size toiletries, no dressing table and the plugs are near the TV with no mirror not very good for females. The rooms have no privacy at all and I would not reccomend anybody to stay at this hotel, save your money and go somewhere else!! I hope you have found this helpful.

enjoyed my stay here, staff friendly, room was absolutely spotless and very modern, fairly quiet night. The only downsides are the slow running showers that lose half the power every now and then (or get too got!) and the lack of decoration (no wall pictures ect) however for £35 you really can't go wrong with this hotel, thanks!

Functional and clean. Very good price and location.Just need some walk to go to downtown. The staff was helpful and nice also providing tips about the city and things to do. Good to mention it is near the railway station too.

Good quality basic accommodation. Good size room, bed comfy, decent shower, toilet small but adequate. Location is 5 minutes from Cardiff city centre and with-in easy access of the railway station. Staff were very friendly and able to assist with our needs. The secure car park is located right outside of the hotel and very reasonable for £4 per night.
