Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This is a very basic room, up three steep flights of stairs. Basic needs are catered for but this is not somewhere to stay if you're looking for a romantic getaway or a treat. It's fine for a night out with easy access to town centre, preferably alcohol induced so you don't notice the finer details

Simon6567, Manager at ML Lodge, responded to this review

I am very sorry that you have not enjoyed your stay. Each room has a water heater for the hot water and the one in your room became faulty. We gave you a substantial discount for this. It has since been repaired. We have only just taken over the business and we are working on improving it. Kind regards, Chris More

The hotel has new owners who are currently renovating it but they need to stop rentals until they have done so, stayed there this week our room had damp walls and mould on Windows, yes it's cheap but needs to be sorted, although the bed was clean and had tea making facilities, TV, and hangers they need to sort out...

Thank you Roy for your feedback. I understand your points. However the only room that had a problem with one of the walls is the one you stayed in. The damage to the drain pipe that caused the problem has now been repaired and the wall will be treated and painted next week. I hope you were satisfied with our... More

I don't want to leave a 'bad' review, so I will keep this 'short' and sweet. PROS * Rooms are perfectly adequate and comfortable (though bathrooms really really need an update and the drainage holes in the bathroom floors need cleaning!) *The higher up you go the better the view of Cardiff * For a City Centre location, amazingly cheap....

Thank you Tim for your review. I am glad that you generally have enjoyed your time at the ML Lodge. I realise that there are areas that we can improve on.

Where do I start? When we arrived the notice on the door told us to go to another hotel across the road to check in. When we had our key and walked in there was a strange smell, a mixture of the 4 different air fresheners that were placed at intervals up the stairs and damp I think. The carpet... More

We decided 5 days prior to our daughters graduation to stay the night ... As a consequence not much accommodation available ... We had room 4, which was a triple room.

Thank you Tracey for your review. We only have nine rooms so we pay to use the hotel's reception opposite us. I suppose you could call this strange but it is located very close and the procedure is listed on all booking sites. You were handed a piece of paper with the Wi-Fi code that also informs you that a... More

Today I returned from Cardiff from seeing a sporting event. As a group of family/friends we have returned to this place for the last 3 years.

I am very sorry that your Daughter did not like the first room given. I am glad that she was happier in the second room. It is a shame that you do not recommend us. There were still other hotels available at more than double our price. We try to offer value for money. Kind regards, Chris More
