Tadross Hotel

Reviewed 23 March 2013

Stayed at the Tadross whilst down for the Rugby last weekend, No complaints from me,

Clean tidy, warm and handy for Cardiff.

Staff really good and friendly

No complaints

You get what you pay for, nice friendly people in the Pub so no problems perhaps all those who complain should go to Cardiff and pay a lot more for a budget hotel and before making ill-advised comments about some bodies business.

I stayed at the Tadross Hotel in Barry at the beginning of October 2012 for a 2 night weekend break. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious and had tea and coffee making facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. The location of the hotel was good and close to local transport links. Most importantly it was excellent value for money

We made our booking on 27 June this year for the Tadross Hotel in Barry for 3 double rooms for 2 nights arriving 9 November 2012.

We arrived at the hotel as planned around 8pm to be told by the manager that he only had one double room booked for two nights – but could provide one other double room for one night only, but had no accommodation at all for the third couple in our party. When shown the booking he said that the booking was made under the previous management and that he was unable to help us. Generally he was really unhelpful, he made one suggestion for a hotel further out from the city (at the Airport) and did allow us to call from the hotel phone – but this accommodation was not acceptable as it was not on a direct public transport link to the city of Cardiff which was one of the major reasons for choosing the Tadross Hotel in the first place. Customers in the bar made suggestions of other hotels that we could possibly book our party into which was really helpful.

As it was an international Rugby weekend in Cardiff accommodation was very hard to find but luckily we were eventually able to find the three necessary double rooms for two nights at a local Travel Inn at an additional cost.

We were very unhappy with the service provided to us by the manager of the Tadross Hotel and were caused considerable stress trying to find accommodation for all our party together – with the manager just shrugging his shoulders and basically saying it was not his problem as the booking was made prior to him taking over.

Where to start? We drove to Barry from Southampton on a Friday night with friends to watch the rugby, a member of our party made the reservation six months ago through laterooms.co.uk. When we arrived, the car park was poorly lit and local kids were throwing bricks and other assorted objects across the car park at each other. Not exactly the best first impression.

When we attempted to check-in, we found that not only had they booked every room for the weekend, but they only hAd one room for 6 of us, when we reserved 3 rooms for two nights. Now I am sure this was a blessing in disguise, as the hotel looked in a bad state of repair, frightful to be accurate and was not as advertised.

Anyway, we managed to get a room at the newly completed Premier Inn near Barry Island - a much more enjoyable and comfortable hotel.

Stayed here for a night in August with a few friends as stopped off in Barry to see the sights (Gavin and Stacey)
We had a outside room to the rear of the pub, room was really basic and plain but was only for one night so wasn't too bad.
The place is attached to an old pub, that was used in Gavin and Stacey. We had a few drinks inside, it was stepping back to 1990- but I think that's just Barry in general

Place will do for a night or two,just don't expect much.

When we got to the hotel we had too walk throug the bar to get the reception. We then had too find someone ourselves to check us in. Staff were friendly and helpful- they recommoneded a couple of good resraurants for us too go. The room was clean but there was a crack in the bathroom window. There wasnt much room to put your clothes- space would be helpful if you are staying for a few days. The shower you had to fiddle with to get to the temp you wanted. Breakfast was help yourself- there could be a few more items to try and you do have to get there early if you want choice (breakfast is run 7-10am). Me and my partner both felt though that the people who were running it preffered to run the bar which is underneath the hotel- we also didnt like the fact that anyone from the bar could get into the hotel section as well. Overall it was an avergae stay.

When we came to the hotel, we didn't think it was the best of places, but when we went instead, we realised it was a very nice and well kept hotel! The rooms were clean and tidy. The staff were helpful. What more could you want? Breakfast was basic (toast, tea, cereals etc.) but overall the hotel was very nice.

Room Tip: The second floor is quiet, compared to the first floor, as on the first floor, you can hear people i...
