I found it difficult to rate Austins as there was no option for satisfactory which it was. Although the rooms were acceptable and very clean there were several minor things that needed attention, although nothing serious. A reasonable place to stay if you just want a couple of nights as the centre of Cardiff is just a few minutes walk away, as is the stadium. Found it disappointing that only instant coffee was served for breakfast as the price of £7 is quite high compared to local restaurants who serve good quality coffee as well as a good cooked breakfast. The menu stated brown or white toast but there was only 50/50 bread available. Overall it was OK and the availability of a parking permit was a real bonus.
Liked: Very clean; not expensive; very close to city centre.
Disliked: Rooms need some small details attending to, to make them better.

Grand Slam Property
Liked: Everything. Excellent property in prime location in Cardiff. Comfortable, well furnished and clean. Would definately stay here again.
Disliked: All superb really. Slight mix up with messaging us to say the room was ready by mistake, meaning we had to return to the car with our luggage. Not a major issue though as it was only 5 minutes away.

Liked: The staff was very nice and allowed me to amend the date of the stay. Overall the place is very nice and it has kitchen utensils a microwave and a fridge.
Disliked: I stayed in the property on a windy night and there was a wooden door in the backyard that as far as I understand doesn't have a lock. Every few seconds moved by the wind, it was smashing into the frame producing a very loud sound that wouldn't let me fall asleep for quite a while until I covered my ears with earplugs. There are very thin walls between the bathroom and the outside, so it gets very cold in there. After a shower one can see loads of steam coming off their body. In summer it shouldn't be as much of a concern.

Fantastic place to stay (if...
Liked: It is in a fantastic location, only a stones throw from the Principality Stadium and main streets of Cardiff. Irrespective of this, the area was nice and quiet. Having door codes was super convenient also. The room itself was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Private bathroom also great.
Disliked: Room was very expensive (approx x5 times regular price - I've stayed here before) given it was a rugby weekend however it was still cheaper than most hotels in the area and to be fair every hotel ramped up their prices but given its location, it was good value in comparison to other hotels that weekend but still very expensive despite the weekend that was in it.

Not much sleep
Disliked: Tv wasn't working as it should, we only had 2 tea bags for all of our stay, beds wasn't made and towels wasn't changed for the 3 nights we were there. And very noisy from other guests we have stayed here on a number of occasions but this is the worst wknd by far .
