Reviewed 6 July 2015

Booked two double rooms at £89 each as was attending the Speedway Grand Prix at the Millenium Stadium. The cost of the Ibis at Cardiff gate was upto £100 cheaper than some similar hotels in the city centre, therefore, the £15 taxi each way made it a cheaper alternative. The rooms are looking a bit dated now and not the...

Stayed in this hotel on several occasions for rugby matches. Pleasant stay always had, rooms clean and comfortable and Breakfast is good. Hotel offers excellent value for money for weekend in Cardiff and taxi to city centre is less than £15 one way.

I stayed here recently the night before a number of business meetings in Cardiff. Only 12 minute drive from the city centre making it a great base for either business or pleasure visits. The hotel itself is, as you'd expect from a budget chain - fairly basic, but the cleanliness and standard of the rooms was great for the amount...

The hotel was easy to find, decent location (just off the M4) and the rooms were clean and comfortable.
