Misleading Listing
The guest house told me through message that a staff member would check us in if we arrived between 3-5pm. We arrived around 4:20pm and no one was there. The listing on also says that breakfast is available but when we got up in the morning, there still weren't any employees on site and no breakfast anywhere. The door marked "reception" was closed and locked the entirety of our stay. We even asked a fellow guest if he knew where breakfast was being served and he said he'd stayed there a few times and didn't know anything about there ever being breakfast available. The listing also says free toiletries but our room only had hand soap for the sink and body wash for the shower. I feel like the listing is misleading.

Shocking ! Dirty damp ! My employees spent 10 minutes there and refused to stay. I had to rebook them a hotel else where . I still got charged a full week for the 10 minute stay ! All attempts to contact the hotel were ignored!

For what we paid it was perfect. It was so close to town, there's no key to worry about loosing as you're given a code, and our room was ready early.

The hotel was good
It’s was an ‘okay’ place but it’s was at a great location where the town centre is. Like they help us provided a iron when we contacted the service call and they came within an half an hour which was a great thing. Things that troubled us were that the heating in the room it was freezing in the floor because the heating was not on whilst the 2 nights we stayed there the only heating that worked was the bathroom and it was too hot there. With cleaning they did not change the sheet which was fine cause we understood and the pin code was easy to use. But one thing I didn’t appreciate was the luggage storage I didn’t knew that it costed to leave it till 2 it’s £2.50 where till 5 £5.00 which is not bad but when your on a budget student it can be but any way it was nice guest house

Great location for the city centre and sporting st
Arrived after 5.00 pm , so reception was not manned, but instructions were clear in the text sent to me. Room was clean , tv worked ok,shower was good and kettle worked fine. wasn't sure if breakfast was included in the rate,but came down at 7.30 am to find no one around and dining area empty,so I guess it was not included. Overall, it was fine and good value.I would stay here again.

Excellent For The Price!
We stayed in Room 1, was a good size room, right next to the bathroom which unfortunately is shared between we believe 3 other rooms, however it was massive and very clean, and for £30 a night we absolutely could not complain. Great for the money! Next to local transport into Cardiff City Center and Mermaid Quay.Only complaint was that there wasn't enough pillows, the mattress' were rock hard, and there were no night staff on to deal with any questions or queries we had so it was a night of broken sleep, but again, for how cheap the hotel is, its really a no-brainer.

Nice little guest house
No problems with the guest house at all. Clean and comfy room Shared bathroom clean but ceiling could do with a lick of paint Breakfast bag was ok as well The problem is Cardiff itself. Unfortunately within the city centre there is a large drug and rough sleeping problem which really let down what is a very beautiful city

The guest house was in need of refurbishment but I think this was ongoing.The staff were very friendly and helpful.The beds were clean and comfortable.The downside was they had started providing a breakfast pack.
