Really nice property in very convenient location within sight if Principality Stadium and Cardiff Central railway station. Room is compact with beds and few hangers but more tjan adequate for our stay. There were plenty of showers which were separate from rooms but plenty of them and never had to wait. Breakfast was yourself and great selection and bery nice

4/10 Fair

Cleanliness was fine and the shared bathrooms were kept in a good state. The location was good - only a few minutes walk to the centre and half an hour to Cardiff Bay. However the other guests left me feeling quite isolated and intimidated - they took over the shared area and the lack of onsite staff meant that there was no oversight of how loud they were into the evening. The room boasted a TV with Firestick however the Wifi was so inconsistent that it wasn't really fit for purpose. Room was very hot, bed was comfortable and clean. I ended up booking a different hotel for the following night. Would be good for a group of younger travellers however not what I was looking for as a solo traveller.
