Perfect spot for site seeing in Cardiff. Location is perfectly between the high street and the bay. Easily walked everywhere and the staff were very helpful. It is a budget friendly hotel so don't expect real fancy digs but for a place to sleep at night and advice on what to see - its got it all.

Did the job. I knew this was a budget hotel with no kettles in the rooms, but no shower gel was a bit of a surprise! Bed was comfy enough, staff were friendly enough, room was fine... nothing spectacular, but nothing horrendous either. Good location. Would possibly stay again if they had a good deal on, but I think I'd choose one of the other chain hotels over this one.
