Unfortunately forced to book this hotel, as everywhere else fully booked by the time I chose to book (unaware of football match). Thought it can't be too bad at £300 for 3 people from frid to sun. Same price as other hotels in Cardiff centre when I had looked previously. Obviously the price was bumped up as they realised hotel...

I love this place. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious with all the facilities needed and the hotel has character. Easy access to Cardiff centre on foot and opposite Pontcana fields. Very safe area. Free parking and good free wifi. This hotel offers excellent value for money.

A beautifully-conserved house in the magnificent Cathedral Road. A good friendly welcome, and nicely maintained communal areas. First night in a well-appointed room, thereafter downstairs in a less well-maintained room which was still very adequate. Good breakfast in a wonderful high-ceilinged Victorian room. Service on most mornings was excellent and attentive, everything attended to and freshened up throughout. The last...

We arrived late as we got caught up in our journey yet the host was welcoming, helpful and polite. Its a very large hotel and the decor may be different from...

The hotel is located very close to Cardiff castle, just ten minutes walking from city centre. Our room was clean and spacious, we had very nice sleep cause of the comfortable bed and quiet place. Next morning we had breakfast at the hotel, everything was delicious and fresh. I strongly recommend this hotel for a lovely weekend in Cardiff.
