Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sabrina wrote a review 17 Feb

15 of us stayed here recently for my hen weekend. Great location, right in the centre of St Mary's Street. As to be expected some of the rooms nearer the front of the hotel experienced a little noise from people enjoying their nights out, but this is the case with any city centre hotel and not much that can be done about it! Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and everyone enjoyed. Staff were all friendly and helpful and also prompt to answer and queries I had before our stay. Nothing was any trouble during our stay and we were able to drop off our bags before checking in and even after we checked out, so we could spend a few hours around the city before our journey home. If you wanted to be picky, the hotel is a little dated perhaps, but still clean and tidy. One of the rooms did have some condensation inbetween the 2 layers of glazing which probably needs looking at. All in all a great stay and I will definitely look to book again next time I plan a trip to Cardiff and I know lots of the party will do the same.

Room Tip: Ask for a room nearer the back of the hotel perhaps if you're a lighter sleeper. No on site...

I have stayed here numerous times now and honestly can’t fault the place for value. The main points are that the family and employees are extremely hard working, going out of their way to make you feel welcomed. Unrivalled location, great brekkie, and friendliness.of staff make this place great value for money.. Thank you again all for making our stay a happy one. Keep up good work.

Second time staying at this hotel. Fantastic location, wonderful warm welcome from all staff. Alison is an absolute star and without a doubt installs that great first impression with her lovely bubbly personality. Rooms as you would expect for a 2 star and rooms are immaculately clean. Breakfast is a 10, they lady who serves at breakfast is just wonderful. We were down for the Scotland vs Wales Rugby, after the game we went back to the hotel to freshen up and ended up staying for a drink as Alison had arranged for us to have filled rolls before going out for dinner that night. We will definitely be booking to stay again in 2 years time.

Interior of the hotel is a bit outdated, but clean and functional. Small electric heating. It took time to heat the room, but after it stay nice warm for all our stay. Good value for money. Unlike another budget hotels, this one has a bath! No lift in the hotel

My wife and I stayed for a Xmas shopping trip for one night. Checked in early, receptionist was so helpful and cheerful. Hotel and room was nice and clean in a great location. Rooms are a bit dated but have everything, plenty of tea and coffee, a decent bathroom and as I said clean bed and towels. It's not The Ritz but they don't charge Ritz prices. We'd happily stay here again in this clean and friendly hotel. Thanks, Sian and Rylan

When I saw the price I really wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. All the staff were friendly and inviting, the hotel was clean, quiet and good temperature. Very generous with the teas, coffees and milks as well. Perfect location would definitely recommend.

A great place to stay, ideal for shopping, and going to the bars and restaurants. Amazing staff, big shout of to the receptionist working on the 9th December, couldn’t do enough for us, “Thank you”, also the lovely lady that served our fab cooked breakfast, everyone, was so friendly and helpful, really made you feel at home. My friend and I enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Smack bang in the middle of everything, few minutes from the station and the principality stadium. The staff are just the friendliest you could ever meet. The beds are comfy and spotlessly clean as are the towels. Would I stay here again? With heavy heart I wouldn’t. It desperately needs a refurb and was cold (it had an electric heater in the bedroom and bathroom but is still cold). Even a bit of decoration would make a huge difference.. it could be really lovely.

I am really sorry we are not to your liking but I thank you for giving us a try. I apologise that you felt the room was cold. We do have spare portable heaters that we could have put in the room if asked. Kind regards, Simon
