We recently visited Elgano's with some friends who were staying for the weekend. We had s table in the window for a change which was nice, however it wouldn't have mattered there is always a lovely atmosphere. The food was really good. The portions are large and so if your a light eater like me then one course is more...

If you value your sleep don't stay here. Single glazed window with a curtain that didn't fit property meant I got three hours max sleep as my room was on the front on a busy main road. I had a massive headache in the morning. Breakfast was ok but small portions. Restaurant prices expensive. They also insist on payment upfront....

We stayed at the Elgano over the bank holiday weekend. We had room 6 which is on the top floor overlooking the back of the house. The room was very clean, quite small but had all the facilities you would expect. It was especially nice to have towels which were soft and didn't smell of cooking, like most places I...

The B&B is upstairs of an Italian restaurant. The room was not so clean with old sheets, the tea set was dirty. The bath was essential without hair dryer. The light and the fan in the bath start automatically with a sensor. The smell of restaurant kitchen goes in the room through the bath.

Stayed at the Elgano for a night earlier this month. I stayed in the coach house which is separate from the main hotel. Very clean, but felt slightly damp. Could have done with being aired , but as on ground floor I didn't want to sleep with the window open. Other than that hotel was very good value (£60.00 including...

The room was in a detached carriage house behind the hotel proper, requiring us to walk through the restaurant to get to the lobby and street entrance. Location was not as convenient to Cardiff City Centre as we'd hoped. Breakfast was only available for a short time in the morning; we did not eat there. On the plus side, shower...

The 'welcome' was efficient but not friendly, the room was a little cramped and , although clean, it was obvious that the shower had not been serviced since its last use. Breakfast was limited for the price bracket this hotel was in. I know that all hotels have off days but I am not tempted to stay here again.
