Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed as part of a group. Decent enough sized bedroom and smallish double bed was comfy enough. Shower was ok but lacked power for me. Breakfasts poor and all self service/ but it was quick. Will I be back, doubt it.

Spent night there on the way to day with family in Cardiff, which we did a couple of years ago. A very comfortable nights stay in a large room, comfortable bed and a decent breakfast. It's a shame that the Italian restaurant round the corner seems to have closed.

The stay here was nice enough - we also visited the bar for a drink before bed, where there was plenty of comfortable seating to sit and enjoy a pint. The room itself was nice enough, the bed itself was a little uncomfortable and I didn't get the best nights sleep. The breakfast in the morning was disappointing - stale...

Needed to come to Wales for a fast track passport and found a great deal this at this place including breakfast and being ideally located to the passport office was ideal. The place was immaculate and the staff, especially Nyall was extremely friendly and helpful, nothing was to much trouble for him. Would definitely recommend staying here, great value.

Booked a room through booking.com the hotel had no note of reservation. Stayed even though a higher rate and then the next night 20% more so not good. Rooms basic, breakfast terrible as hot breakfast very low budget and room really cold. Staff very prison service style and no interaction. The only positive was the free wifi and good pillows.

The hotel must have been recently refurbished. It is in a pristine condition and offers all the facilities one would expect in a first class hotel. Staff are extremely helpful and polite.

Nice modern and spotlessly clean, rooms are comfortable and appointed to a high standard. The hotel is really convenient to drive to. The foyer/bar/restaurant area is a little chilly and lacks atmosphere, it's got the look and feel of an airport departure lounge rather than somewhere you would choose to eat but there is a decent pub within walking distance...
