- hospital like bathroom
- furniture had painting coming off
- extremely noisy. coulndt sleep as walls are basically made of paper and doors banging all night long

Worse experience ever.

Pros: the room was clean and quiet (although I did use ear plugs)
Good to have a free breakfast
Fast wifi

Cons: many of the staff did not speak good English so it was difficult getting the food I wanted n the morning

Room Tip: Room 5 overlooks the road which could be annoying for some people.

As a group of four girls it was our first time to Cardiff .we booked two rooms 3 and 8 .both clean and tidy as for size room 3 is better . The staff was very friendly . We stay at the restaurant for dinner that was very nice . Breakfast was good . You got a choice of juice and yogurt with a cooked breakfast . I will definitely stay here again .

Fabulous hotel and restaurant !!! My room was really comfortable and with all the necessary utilities !!!! Dinner at the restaurant seemed to really eat in a typical Italian restaurant, with genuine and tasty products !!!!

Took a long time to open the front door (1500 pm), could not find my booking, could not find my e-mail requesting an early breakfast. Found my booking but not my e-mail. Asked about car parking at the back of the hotel, would rather I did not as they had a large party coming in Saturday - told me to park on the main road. I had a room in the Coach House, clear, tidy, room not too big, central heating working, the curtains had seen better days but the hot water in the shower was lovely. I went to use the internet and realised that they had not given me the password, so I had to ring the restaurant. Thank you to the person who put the empty wine bottles in the recycling bin in a very very loud matter, it woke me up. The car park had 2 hotel vans, 1 car and 1 motorcycle plenty of room for other vehicles, so why stop me from parking? I went to breakfast at 0745 pm and eventually was able to have a cup of tea, cornflakes, banana and brown toast.
