Located within a short walk, bus ride from the city on Cathedral Road, this hotel is family owned and is a great value for money place to stay in Cardiff.

Sorry for the inconvenience this caused but as you...

We had reserved for two nights but checked out after just one. It was a busy weekend and I think we might have been left with the worst room. We had seen on the website that the decor was rather dated, but were not prepared for the room we received. It was on the ground floor and was barely big...
