Close to stadium

Pros: Close to stadium.
Location: Close to everything.
Small room and probably the smallest bathroom I have ever been in but overlooks the stadium.

Very central in Cardiff

Pros: Good size rooms and very good beds.
Cons: The restaurant has a boring menu and the staff can't even be bothered to open the bottle of wine for you let alone pour it. Really very poor service.
Location: Great location opposite the castle.
Liked the hotel, not the restaurant. The room was a good size, ours overlooked the park.
