Great location!
Great location. Right in the Cardiff centre. The room was a bit too hot. There wasn't any kettle, tea etc. in the room. The bed wasn't super comfortable.

Fine for a 1 night stay
Took ages to check in and check out but the hotel is nice. No vegan friendly stuff though, even the shower gel has honey in it. Couldn't open the windows in the room and it was roasting despite turning the thermostat down as far as it would go.

Great rooms
Our hotel room was gorgeous and we had a king sized bed. The room was large and the view was perfect. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Good hotel in downtown Cardiff
We have stayed at the Royal on each trip to Cardiff to visit family for the past 6-8 years and recommended it to friends as well. We were disappointed this time that they would store our injectable medication for our son but refused to put freezer packs in the freezer for our further travel stating it was unhygienic and they no longer have that service. I had emailed ahead of time to request a refrigerator (as I forgot they are not in the room) but was assured I would be helped by the front desk. I would hope that this situation will be corrected. We like the location of the hotel within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and the castle.
