Just returned form a weekend in Cardiff and Newport. This hotel offers excellent value and is much cheaper than neighbouring Cardiff, especially when there are major sporting events / concerts taking place in Cardiff. The location of the hotel is ideal, situated in one of the better areas of Newport and is just 10 mins walk from train station and Town Centre. The train station offers regular links to Cardiff Central, but if staying out in Cardiff til the early hours a Taxi back from Cardiff Town Centre would cost around £28.00 on the meter (watch our of taxi firms who try to agree much higher prices and don't switch on their meters!).
Inside the hotel the rooms are a good size and comes complete with en suite bathroom with power shower, towels, tea and coffee making facilities and in room telephone. Adjoining rooms with connecting doors are available too for families etc staying together.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and a complementary breakfast is served each morning. For breakfast there is a choice of a Full English Breakfast as well as various cereals, croissants and fruit.
Reception closes around 10pm although there is a key code entry system which allows 24 hour access for guests.
When visiting Cardiff I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends / family.More
