This place is fine for a one night city stay. Short walk to city centre. Rooms are clean and serviceable. Breakfast tasty and served in a pleasant room. We didn't fancy the pool when we realised it looked out onto the public carpark!!! Quite pricwey for what is basically a budget stay but then Cardiff is expensive nowadays.

Convenient location as close enough to the City centre but out of the way enough to avoid late night noise. Clean, smart and spacious rooms. Great leisure facilities. Staff friendly and welcoming. No complaints with the food. Would highly recommend and I always look forward to staying here when in Cardiff.
