Did the job nicely

Pros: It did the job perfectly. arrived v.late, crashed out in my room, left in the morning. the room and shared bathroom was immaculate.
Cons: Breakfast was advertised as being from 8am(I had a taxi booked to leave at 8:30 ) It wasn't ready for 8, and so I was v.rushed!
Location: Didn't really go out other than to find a late night supermarket to get food for the next day. It's in a residential area and there's not much nearby.
I booked at this hotel beause it was the only place with a vacancy in my budget at short notice on a weekend where Wales were playing rugby(My mistake not being a sports follower I assumed I'd be able to get a centralish hotel within 7 days of my trip :D ) It's not within reasonable walking distance of the centre IMO (don't let maps fool you) but it's not a long taxi ride from cardiff station. The staff were pleasant enough, the single room I was in was comfy if a little narrow. Everything was v.clean and was perfect for it's purpose as a place to crash before an early start the next day. The staff were helpful in booking me a taxi for the morning and the fact the bathroom and toilets were shared and not en-suite never caused me any problems (Indeed I only ever saw 2 other guests in my one night stay there) My only real issue as stated below was I paid for a breakfast that was suppose to be from 8am, and it wasn't ready until 8.15 which made me very rushed and meant I didn't really eat my fill for £5. I did get a small cooked but I had to wolf it down and practically run out the door to my taxi. Not entirely the hotels fault but they knew I had an early start and assured me breakfast at 8am would be fine and in the vent the one mmember of stadd in the kitchen seemed slightlu overwhelemed and panicked by 3 people wanting their breakfasts dead on the stated breakfast time on a sunday.

Pros: Quiet, even though on main road. Pleasant, helpful staff.
Location: Very close to city centre. As on business, did not see the sites.
Very comfortable bed, room quiet, so slept well. Parking could be a bit tight, depending on others parking ability. Very close to city centre.

Difficult to find at night as not well signed in a dark street if you don't know Cardiff, as I didn't. Also parking behind the hotel needs to be better sign-posted. However, the hotel was close to centre and wonderfully friendly and welcoming owners/ staff. The television lost connection during the evening and this was quickly resolved. Very high standard of cleanliness and comfort. Breakfast was excellent and lovely, friendly service. I didn't realise no en-suite so the shared shower and a toilet down corridor was a disappointment. However, was all spotlessly clean.

Nina and Tony made our stay at Tanes Hotel very enjoyable - excellent customer service . Good suggestions for things to do and restaurants to dine at. Easy 15 mins walk to Cardiff centre or convenient bus right at front door. And an excellent cooked breakfast gave us plenty of energy to explore Cardiff. Ensuite rooms very nice.
