Exceptional 10.0
Great room, lovely staff, amazing value!
We had an amazing stay at the royal just before everything kicked off with social distancing. It was AMAZING! the room was big, modern and clean. It was equipped with everything you could want! Smart TV so we could access Netflix, iron and board as well as wonderful toiletries made with the honey from their very own bees on the roof! There’s even a shaving kit, dental kit etc. It is such an amazing offering for a reasonable price. Every stay also gets a £5 voucher for the bar so we took advantage, the drinks were a reasonable price and the staff were so friendly and helpful despite the uncertainty of their jobs. They were even sponging the walls down. We had free breakfast with our booking, although I know it can be payable. The selection was really good and the food was replenished with fresh at regular intervals. I would highly recommend and we will be returning as soon as we are able!

Great room, comfy bed, lovely bathroom, right in Cardiff city centre, reasonable price but WiFi did not work at all during stay, kept saying incorrect password on 3 different devices and asked at reception but was just told you have to keep trying

Rugby weekend
Is a very nice hotel, brilliantly located with nice rooms and friendly helpful staff, however we were on the 6th floor and could still hear a lot of noise coming from the pubs and clubs in the street. This was probably made worse by the fact that it was a weekend though.

Lift was out of order and my room was on the 4th floor. Staff were apologetic and provided a drinks voucher as a good will gesture.
