Paid £70 for one night, no parking, cash on arrival however this was not mentioned. The room was very cluttered, dirty, cobwebs, dust and damp, holes in bed linen, bathroom needed a good clean. No working wifi, No plug for bath and shower head was broken.

I booked 3 rooms for a girls evening out in Cardiff with friends and didn't want to pay a lot as we weren't planning on being in the hotel much. This hotel exactly matched our requirements. It is a budget hotel and you get what you pay for. The hotel is really quite quaint with lots of character, the rooms...

Fantastic small & friendly B&B with the owners that could not do enough for you. Forget your chain hotels where parking, Wi-Fi & breakfast is all extra this is all included in the price. I was in Cardiff Saturday & all the chain hotels wanted £180 plus & I paid £55 & it was fantastic. I was able to walk...

Went to Cardiff to see a gig with my friend. Needed somewhere to crash for the night and The St Hilary came up trumps. Its not a 5 star hotel and it doesn't pretend to be. It is a warm and friendly BnB and the down to earth girls made us feel more than welcome without being in our face..Definitley...

So for the most part this was an ok stay, friendly staff, clean room, decent breakfast and very affordable price. A few gripes I had was I found it to be very noisey, I was in a basement room (which was perfectly nice) but unacceptable amount of noise upstairs from other guests. Sounded like Antelope running around at various points...

Firstly, may I suggest you dismiss the naysayers and doom-mongers who have nothing better to do than whinge about what must be (without doubt) the top choice for budget accommodation in Cardiff. After reading such negative reviews of St Hilary, it was not without trepidation that we booked: we need not have worried one jot. St Hilary may be a...

Not going to lie it wouldn't necessarily be my first choice of accommodation. However we were there for 2 nights, it was basic but clean, somewhere for a few hours sleep each night & breakfast. Decent sized cooked breakfast, admittedly timings bit early but still a hot plate of food. Few issues with bathroom facilities in one of the rooms...

Absolutely awful. I would hate to think this might be a first experience in our beautiful country for visitors. No PAT testing done EVER, no details of where to meet in case of fire, no TV remote, soaking wet towels on radiators. Breakfast swimming in grease and was served between 8am and 9am - at the weekend! Would not give...
