4/5 Good

Hotel is right in the centre of Cardiff so easy walking distance to everything including Cardiff Bay (20 mins). Down side is that at night the Main Street is very noisy- lots of clubs and bars so if you need a quiet room you need to ask for a room on Westgate side or back of hotel. Also the hotel building is very old and the layout means that there are lots of stairs on lots of smaller landings with only a small lift servicing ground to 2nd floor (where Reception is based). My overall rating 7/10

Friendly staff. Old hotel and in need of a refurb. Digital TV didn't work, but only a short stay so not too bad.

4/5 Good

Basic but comfortable

This hotel is in the centre of Cardiff and close to the shops and Millennium stadium. The staff were polite and efficient but weren't overly friendly, apart from the lady who greeted us in the breakfast room. She was really welcoming and made an effort with all the guests. The bed was very comfortable despite the rooms being basic. The level of cleanliness differed depending on where you went in the hotel. The skirting boards in the room were dirty and the wooden mouldings in the dining room was thick with dust. In my view the breakfast was overpriced even if there was plenty of choice.
