If you are travelling by car this is a handy location off the M4, and it was surprisingly quiet. If you are using public transport, forget it ! The 57/58 bus information is most misleading.

Service was efficient and staff were courteous. The room was clean and comfortable. Location only really suitable for those driving, I was cycling and it was a bit of a trek out of Cardiff.

I stay at this hotel several times a year and always have very helpful staff if i have any queries. The location is very convenient for the city centre but also for travelling on elsewhere. I much prefer a separate shower which is one of the reasons i stay there.

My partner and I stay at this hotel for 2 nights and were very impressed. Staff were friendly and very attentive and room was a good size and clean. THe hotel is quite basic and decor generic but I really couldn't fault anything. Would definitely return

We stayed here for one night on our way from London to Brecon Beacons. The ibis is very easy to get to, and great value. The room was a good size and clean, and the receptionist was very friendly. Would recommend for a quick stopover.
