About
Description
The closest hotel to the Principality (formerly the Millennium) Stadium gates, The Royal Hotel is the oldest of all the Cardiff hotels and has been welcoming guests to our fantastic city since it first More opened it's doors in 1866. Our rich history includes the Captain Scott Room, where Captain Scott and his expedition team held their final public banquet before setting sail to the South Pole. Recently refurbished with free Wi-Fi throughout, the Hotel is an oasis of boutique charm above the hustle and bustle of Cardiff city centre. We also have two rooftop beehives, which you can visit and even try some of the honey they have produced! Less

It is much shorter walk than 5 minutes - more like 1-2 mins maximum - we are the closest Hotel to the Stadium. :)
