Really enjoyed our stay in this cracking little hotel which is perfectly placed for all the attractions on the Bay and is also within reasonable distance to the main city if you want to venture further into town. Although for a weekend away there is plenty enough to keep you busy in Cardiff Bay itself. We toured the BBC Doctor...

The hotel is located directly opposite the Millenium Centre and ideal if you are visiting the Bay. They do a superb breakfast and we found them very helpful and funny! Our rooms were very clean with large bathrooms.

Found this hotel by chance and really happy that we booked it, it's an intimate boutique hotel that is cosy, warm and full of sweets 😁 The owner was helpful, entertaining and even made me a latte to take with me on the drive home. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you for the personal touches and the hospitality...

Looked for a Cardiff location to work from for three days and found Jolyon's . A real delight and so close to Millennium centre and Cardiff Bay with all the restaurants. The Hotel staff gave me a warm welcome and showed me to an immaculate room. I had good free Wi Fi service to work from. Fabulous Find will be...

Stylish and comfortable boutique hotel that is quickly developing a reputation for its star-studded guests of supercool writers, photographers and the odd actress from the theatre over the road. Also strangely popular with all people named Jolyon...A fantastic place and the wonderful staff can't do enough for you.

Stayed at this hotel for one night as we were going to the Millenium Centre. We were greeted in a very friendly manner and taken to our room which was on the ground floor. It was extremely clean and was adequate for our needs. We would definitely stay again but next time would book a room overlooking the Millenium on...
