  • Good city centre location, very enjoyable stay and excellent venue. Especially for the reasonable price, nice decoration and the staff were friendly and efficient. The room was spacious, breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

    A lesson to other more expensive hotels and bed not particularly comfortable. No outdoor garden/.

  • The location is great and the hotel is fully accessible by lifts. Staff are helpful, the rooms are light.

    Decor in the bar was a bit dated, the lighting in the bathroom was very poor and the breakfast charges were missleading and the fresh fruit not very fresh.

  • S central shopping area, my kippers appeared 5 minutes later and were nice, the breakfast was of a very good quality. Again the service was excellent, room was comfortable and the staff were very friendly and informative and the bar was reasonably priced.

    Location couldn't be better, cleanliness of bedding could be improved.

  • The location is perfect and the hotel is very well located for the centre of Cardiff. The royal's staff deserve better and room is big enough considering its price. The bar is lovely and drinks reasonably priced, breakfast is available.

    Reception up stairs, shower was broken and one of the bathrobes was badly ripped at the neck and should be replaced.

  • Well presented in all areas, just a few minutes from the station and excellent for stadium /. The hotel was clean, staff were very friendly and helpful, the enormous bed in room 501 was a luxury in itself. In the bar was very good and breakfast was charged extra at 9 pounds for the continental version.

    No view from tiny window and car park too far away. Unusual arrangement wherein reception is on the second floor and the lift is very slow, shower difficult to turn off, beer off unable to drink.
