Good central location

Liked: The location is opposite the castle and near the stadium. The hotel has an old world charm with a lovely entrance and stairs. The breakfast was very well cooked. Fairly limited choice (no scrambled eggs) but all good quality and freshly prepared. Good shower.
Disliked: The car park was small and has very narrow spaces. Would be ok if you are arriving in a small car but took a few tries to find a space big enough for mine. The bed was too soft.

Good stay in Cardiff

Liked: Great location, very close to the castle. Nice hall. Good breakfast, very kind staff. Convenient private car parking behind the hotel (to be paid separately). Clean and spacious room. Restaurant available for guests.
Disliked: Room temperature at arrival, too hot. Hair dryer hidden in the drower and not very easy to use (very short cable). The restaurant atmosphere.

Great Place

Liked: My room and bathroom were spacious and nicely updated. The location is the best for shopping and visiting Cardiff Castle. The taxi ride was just 5 pounds from the central train station.

Wouldnt be my first choice...

Liked: Location was great. Colleagues I know who were closer to town in the premier inn or Travelodge cant remember which had loud music banging til 4am and this hotel was far enough away to be nice and quiet. reception staff were great, bar staff were ok, but I got some unnecessary aggression from the breakfast staff. There was no need for it. All to do with whether I had or hadn't paid which I had. Breakfast was good though. Room was clean and bathroom was ok. Staircase at reception was amazing!
Disliked: Staff at breakfast were a bit aggressive about whether I'd paid for breakfast or not. Sent me to reception to get a receipt even though I'd already pre paid
