Really nice hotel in a great location, bars and shopping all really close by within walking distance so no need for taxis, good value for money, last time I came to Cardiff I stayed at the radisson but the Clayton was a lot better! Would stay here again if I come back once more
Jordan, gb1 night trip
Clayton Hotel Cardiff
Great hotel in general. Would stay here again definitely. Unfortunately the service in the restaurant was average at best. Friendly enough but took 20minutes to clear my plate and offer a dessert menu. There were ten diners at most at the time. Shame.
