    Great hotel right in the middle of shops and restaurants. Really quite at night. Very clean with everything we needed and great wifi. Handy car park behind and train station just around the corner. Will definitely be back.

    Stayed for two nights on a business conference. It is situated in a great location close to bars and restaurants, with on site parking. Evening and lunch food from the restaurant was poor. Had two bad nights sleep firstly due to the room temperature (which was set to heating before we got to the room) and secondly due to the...

    Stated here for 2 nights as a get away to see Cardiff. Location is perfect for shopping and sightseeing. It's also perfect for rugby matches as the stadium is located around the corner maybe 5 minutes away. It's also right on the train station door way.. The reception staff were very friendly and we got some lovely advice from the...

    Clean room, comfortable bed and central location, a very short distance away from the central train station. It's located very close to a number of bars and restaurants. The downside is that you can hear traffic directly outside your window and bars playing annoyingly loud music during the night.

    I've stayed in numerous Travelodge's (and hundreds of others...) in both the UK and overseas, so I know to expect when it comes to the basics of staying in a hotel - namely, good value, a clean room and service with a smile. Good value, kind of - but that's where the good point ends... I checked in for a...

    Great Travelodge experience. Could see the hotel from the train station. Perfect location for a quick trip away with the kids. Loads of space in our room for 4. We love Cardiff and this was a great way to see the sights on a budget.

    Provides decent value accommodation in the city centre. Plus points- room was clean, staff were helpful. I had a decent night's sleep despite some noise from local nightlife.
