Convenient location.
Hotel was good value for money, in a convenient location for the city centre, train station and St. David’s Hall. I stayed on the seventh floor and could hear very little traffic noise or noise from nearby nightclubs, so had a good night’s sleep. The room was clean and fresh, with good WiFi reception (free). The bathroom was small but functional, though the shower could do with updating. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Good for a short break
We stayed in room 406. A small room but very quiet, even though the hotel is on a main street. There was plenty of storage space but there was hardly any room to open the right hand wardrobe door. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows really did need replacing -they were really hard. The tea/coffee tray is always a nice touch.There was a decent hairdryer plus an iron and ironing board in the room. Take some coat hangers with you as we only had 4. The room and all public areas were spotlessly clean and the staff attentive without being intrusive. The toiletries were lovely and the towels were clean and bright. Hot water was plentiful. Would we stay again, definitely, if the price was right.

Always lovely to have the Royal to come 'home' to, whether in Cardiff on business or a pleasure trip. well located, well maintained, with friendly staff and lovely rooms, the Royal is our go-to hotel in Cardiff, and this trip reminded us why it will continue to be so.
