“Do not go.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2007

This has to be one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. The room smelled of damp when we walked in and was cold. The furniture looked like it had been picked up from a jumble sale and the curtains didn't close properly. It was that cold (even though it's only mid October) in there, that when we went to bed we also felt the need to get the single duvet cover off the bunk bed and use that too. The walls are really thin as we heard a couple next door having a blazing row at 4am! It was that bad I couldn't even face using the shower in the small, grotty bathroom. The only saving grace was the chap that checked us in was really nice. We couldn't wait to get out of there!

We had the misfortune to stay in this hotel for two nights Friday & Saturday when attending an event at Cardiff. The room we booked on the internet was described as 3 star & spacious with ensuite etc. The room we were given was so small my husband & I could not pass one another at the side or bottom of the bed. The 'ensuite' was the size of a very small cupboard & the wash basin so small we could hardly get our hands in to wash our faces. There was only room for one bedside table & the lamp did not work. There was no hairdryer as stated on the room description & the kettle could not be filled from the basin as it would not fit. The breakfast was nothing to write home about, tea lukewarm and stewed & they could not provide a 'boiled' egg !! We will not go again or recommend it to anyone else.

We stayed at the Roman Lodge as a base for touring Roman remains in south Wales. Our room was spacious, with excellent water pressure in the bathroom (not something we've experienced everywhere in the UK).
Breakfasts were good, but full Welsh breakfast (same as full English except it includes beans) cost extra. The restaurant was out of our price range, but a cheaper pub/lunch menu was served till 7. Car park across the street was free. Staff were pleasant but not chatty. Room seemed in need of redecorating. We had a good experience here, but despite the name, it isn't within walking distance of any actual Roman remains. Since that's why we were in Wales, we might choose to stay somewhere else next time.
