“Sparse”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

This was a very good hotel if you are just using it as somewhere to sleep, and are planning most of your time away from it. We were shocked to find that they had no tea or coffee makig facilities. However, there is a Mcdonald's just around the corner. It's a nice hotel, but just very basic. But with the amount we spent on it, we didn't expect much.

If you are looking for a clean, well run, comfy bed, powerful shower with excellent air conditioning hotel, this is the one for you. Puts the big players with high prices to shame, after all the most important part about staying in a hotel IMHO is the quality of the sleep.

I understand this is a budget hotel but it was way too basic. The bed was very hard, it didn't have a proper mattress, my back was shot after sleeping on it. The window could not be opened properly, felt very claustrophobic . The pillow I had smelled like somebody else slept on it. The toilet didn't have any extractor either. The television had only 6 channels and the volume was pre set very low. The wifi was not very good, my iPad kept buffering, could not watch any show. My son who had the top of bunk bed complained of being very uncomfortable too. The AC stopped working after a while. room was tiny and boiling hot. Toilet roll almost finished when we arrived. Tiny soap.
The breakfast value was not very good, not a lot of variety
On the positive side, staff were extremely helpful and polite.Room was clean. Also the restaurant
Good parking place

Room Tip: Find out about the bed!!! And size of room if you are booking a room for a family

I travelled with my two teenage children and the family room was good value and clean. The air-conditioning was essential as the proximity to the M4 means the window can't be left open at night.
Soundproofing is good, both room-room & room-corridor. The shower was good and the breakfast very good value with the kids eating free.
On the downside, the rooms are very small and the shower opens into the bedroom with a fully-glazed door. It's not possible to dress in the shower, or even take in a towel and this raises serious privacy issues, so some negotiation between family members is required.

Room Tip: Lower floors near the fire station will be quieter.

Good basic hotel to explore south wales. Paid £95 for 4 nights. Room was basic and small but clean and had all we needed. Room also had air con (which was great as it was very hot whilst we were there) and free wifi which was great! Also the shower was amazing - nice and powerful. Was just off m4 so easy to drive to other places. We particularly enjoyed Barry Island, Cardiff and Caerphilly castle.

For £95 for 4 nights I wasn't expected much, but hotel was so much better than expectations and would happily stay at this hotel again!
