    Perfect

    we really enjoyed our stay there and will choose the place for future trips. location and breakfast are very good. a writing table, a clothes-hanging unit and a phone where present in the double room. what's more, getting to principality stadium on foot takes about 5 mins. set opposite the train station, it was a plus.

    Nothing.

    The location and the staff.

    Overall, we were extremely disappointed. The Internet site advertises the Hotel has providing a clean retro-60s decor and feel. In truth, the decor throughout looked as if it had been last been painted in the 1960s. The room had cupboard doors hanging by their hinges and the free- standing hanging rack was just about standing. The furniture arrangement meant being unable to easily access plug sockets, which there weren't enough of. Additionally, the lentgh of the kettle lead meant placing the kettle on the floor. The tv remote did not function correctly and the curtains did not look or feel as if they had been cleaned in a long time. The carpet was stained throughout. The only saving grace was the bathroom which we found clean and functional. The staff were fine. Apologies for the negativity, but though admittedly it was a budget room, we were at least expecting a clean, serviceable and functional room. We are booked in to stay in November, so would you kindly inform me of the cancellation policy as I would like to cancel as have already paid for the room. Kind regards Mr Chaplin

    The hotel was close to restaurants, bars and shops. Breakfast was ok, I expected it to be worse. It may have once been a nice hotel, many many years ago.

    There was a lot we didn't like. But we probably should have guessed by the 2 star rating. Although 1 star is more appropriate. It is totally run down, stains on the carpets, curtains,... Hallways smelled little funky. It is a popular bachelor/hen party location. So all during the night you hear people coming back from clubbing. The rooms were very hot, fans didn't work, and there are no windows to open. Our friends bedroom smelled like an ashtray, but changing rooms was not possible. Taking a shower was a matter of patience. The water would work, then it would stop, and start again and so on. There was only 1 of 2 elevators working, for 81 hotel rooms, spread over 8 floors, that just wasn't enough. So people had to take the stairs most of the time. So it depends on what kind of stay you are looking for.

    The hotel was very clean and comfortable and the bedroom quite large. The continental breakfast was very good. the location was excellent for shopping purposes and eating out in the evening. I would stay again.

    the bedroom was too hot even though the fan was on all night.

    Staff made an effort to allow us to check in earlier to get ready for my daughter's graduation. Parking on site not too expensive

    Horrific plumbing noises awoke us at 0230hrs and continued through the night every 30 seconds lasting for 26 seconds! Did not get any sleep. Breakfast croissants were cold and stale! Tea in room tasted disgusting.
