6/10 Good

In search of breakfast.
This is a modest, small place. Not really a hotel at all - more a case of Pub with Rooms. We were shocked when we asked, "What time do you serve breakfasts?" A reasonable question? "We don't do breakfast!" was the reply. The (friendly) manager waved her hand vaguely out of the window and told us of a cafe, supposedly a short walk away. We managed to get milk and next morning, made a cuppa and set of to find the breakfast cafe. After a fifteen minute hike we found ourselves well into Penarth before we found a very unprepossessing place we were not attracted to. We walked on until we found a better place. Next two days we went in search of breakfast by bus. The entry says, 'Breakfast available.' A bus ride to breakfast? Never again! HOWEVER - we enjoyed dinner in the pub in the evening. Excellent, hearty meal.

Simple place to stay.
Simple, clean room. Live music in the bar downstairs, but the rooms are fairly well insulated, so the noise wasn't bothersome. Quick check-in, very convenient to Penarth, in a cute, mostly residential area.

Quiet, convenient, clean
A great budget room, reasonably clean, but not fancy. I don’t mind if the towels don’t match if the room is clean and comfortable. The car park is hidden around back, but there’s a reasonable amount of on street parking as well, and the location is convenient to Cardiff but quiet.
