Okay value for money, good bed and breakfast, very accommodating. Make Sure you're at breakfast by 0930 as it stops serving then. Great showers and beds. Great bar. £5 from city centre in a taxi. Very friendly service. TV in rooms No air con Very clean

I would recommend staying somewhere else for a trip to Cardiff. The rooms are incredibly noisy, where you can hear conversations from the hallway, loud noises from water pipes, exhaust fans and the kitchen. The beds and pillows were very lumpy and uncomfortable.

The linen and curtains stank of cigarette smoke...

The hotel and catering industry is also known as The Hospitality Sector. Hazel and Elgan understand this. The welcome is warm; the way the staff talk to you, serve you and behave all combine to make you welcome and more importantly, feel welcome. They have a professionally relaxed approach so you feel comfortable. The requests that you make are met...
