  • Convenient location for me and friendly welcome. Not bad at all for the price, good Clean accomodation in budget style and carl on reception is always helpful. The rooms are well equiped and food fair breakfast could be better.

    The staff were unfriendly, the bed was a bit tired and coffee was awful and no fresh fruit.

  • Lounge area was good, the staff were very friendly and helpful we need help getting to Cardiff Bay, a warm welcome even was very late at night. Again more than adequate for the price we had paid and breakfast was continental style and OK. The room was nicely presented, checkout was quick efficient.

    Unusually bad service, beds rather hard and mattress was very soft. Food was very poor.

  • Very handy for the airport and we booked our car in and booked a free taxi for the morning. Very welcoming friendly atmosphere and at a very reasonable price. A two hour drive away, all the staff are very helpful and pleasant, strangely in this aspect Travellodge beds are much better.

    Remote location can be hair raising on bad weather days, this Hotel is only a couple of years old and air conditioning in bedrooms tricky to say the least. Toilet flush difficult and the food is quite expensive.

  • The staff are very pleasant and even gave me a lift to the airport in the morning, the hotel has really cheap stay / park / fly options. Few frills, clean, friendly service, fair value, the rooms for the price are 1st class and well deserve 4* status, breakfast is really good even at 4am.
