  • Excellent location friendly helpful staff, good Hotel and reasonable price. Wooden interior decoration, poor service especially the front desk and the design of the room was lovely. Breakfast was brilliant.

    Low budget', the reception was a long way up two floors and bed was uncomfortable the mattress was too thin. Heated towel rack did not work and was coming loose from wall fixture.

  • Great location in city centre, good Value & and price was amazing. Staff were all very helpful and room was clean. Breakfast items not replenished very often, people had to wait a long time for spoons, etc.

    Poor quality fittings, tv was tiny and curtains were strange never seen fluffy ones before.

  • I liked the location and good value. The price was brilliant and reception staff were welcoming. The bathroom was quite big and breakfast was great.

    One of the worst hotels, fortunately, nothing was damaged and the room was quite hot and the windows did not open. The toilet seat was also dirty.

  • In a very good position, well 's a ten story tower block and a budget hotel without a great deal of compromise quality 2. For the price we paid, we expect a better setup and continental style, and no limit to amount you could eat. The rooms are large and stylish and have everything you need from the tea/.

    The bar situation is really badly set up (having to call a member of staff, Cardiff Big Sleep never again and formica heaven and the worst customer service I have experienced. Curtains didn't meet in the middle, too small for the window, fried breakfasts are bad for you anyway.
