dated and tired, but expected that for price....stopped as a couple for 2 nights....told maid can not enter as per covid rules, and to just ask if we needed anything... However, only had 1 x shower gel and 2 sachets of coffee....and 1 towel each i dont expect to keep running down to reception asking for what i beleive should have been in the room ready for us, as already knowing our booking was for 2 nights... had 4 showers each so had to use same towel ...and walked to weatherspoons for a coffee.. staff all great, location perfect.

Arrived by train - the Angel is easy to find - helpful reception stored luggage while we explored Cardiff. All the staff were very friendly and capable - good food - felt very COVID safe without being oppressive.

Staff was helpful and welcoming but the hotel has seen better days. We were "upgraded" from a standard to a de luxe room, which was very kind but it did make me wonder what the standard room was like. Our room on the 3rd floor was quite big but the 2 small windows were absolutely filthy and all they overlooked were other roofs with 2 gulls nests on. Maybe interesting from a wildlife point of view but the nests are very dirty affairs. In the room there were 2 lights that did not work, one bedside and one table lamp. In the bathroom there were no tissues in the tissue holder. Even if a hotel is 3*, you can still take a pride in how it looks, Pictures on walls, curtains that hang properly and do not look too tired etc.

Had an overnight stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful but that was the only plus. I had a single room which was very basic and the carpet was stained and the windows had cobwebs, The full English breakfast was not inspiring. The hash browns and bacon were dry and the fried mushroom and fried egg very greasy. The internet wi fi took an age to connect

Checked in and went up to our room, nice size room but not as clean as to be expected and no hot water, went and saw reception who moved us to another room without hesitation as they were unable to go into our room once we'd checked in due to covid. Excellent room clean and tidy very impressed with the service and how quickly they felt with our issue
