Ok so I stayed there one night and only paid £50ish (another £8 or so for an iffy breakfast). So cheap but pretty cheery. Room was spacious, clean with a comfy bed and good noise/light isolation. Clean bathroom. Only drawback was the brekkie. Not great but did a job. Bottom line is for the price you can't really argue (well... More

My partner and I stayed here the other weekend when there was a show on at the Motorpoint Arena. I feel the price was not justified by the overall stay. Upon arrival in Cardiif I rung to find the best place to park, only for the phone to be answered by a rude, arrogant and abrupt member of staff. After... More

The room was fine and was a standard Ibis Budget "shake out of the bag" room with everything you needed for a few nights stay. The main problem is that the bed feels like you're sleeping on a piece of cardboard. If it had been anything other than the bed I would have given it 4 stars but the comfort... More

Stayed here as we were going to a gig at the motorpoint, it could not have been closer, literally just across the road. The hotel is also very close to local shops bars and restaurants. Hotel itself is basic but very clean and perfectly adequate, staff were friendly and helpful.

We wanted somewhere with good access to motorpoint arena..we weren't disappointed. 2 minutes walk to arena ,shops, dining etc. No onsite parking, but ample parking opposite hotel and free! Hotel basic, but exceptionally clean, bar, and friendly staff...ill definitely stay here again.
