The hotel was clean and just what we needed basics, the only down side was the car parking wasn’t aware of it being sub-contracted out to another company, be aware! Overall good clean and perfect for our needs
Perfect spot for site seeing in Cardiff. Location is perfectly between the high street and the bay. Easily walked everywhere and the staff were very helpful. It is a budget friendly hotel so don't expect real fancy digs but for a place to sleep at night and advice on what to see - its got it all.
Very basic - but incredibly good value for money -

Did the job. I knew this was a budget hotel with no kettles in the rooms, but no shower gel was a bit of a surprise! Bed was comfy enough, staff were friendly enough, room was fine... nothing spectacular, but nothing horrendous either. Good location. Would possibly stay again if they had a good deal on, but I think I'd choose one of the other chain hotels over this one.
