I booked 2 rooms at the Cefn for a Saturday night. While the rooms are clean, pleasant and warm, the 2 rooms we had faced the roads and with poor windows the road noise was quiet bad. All in all I would have been pleased with this accommodation if it wasn't for the price. £120 for a double and £100...

We stayed over for one night, but would have happily stayed longer. Very helpful staff, they couldn't do enough, especially as we had our dog. Evening meal was cooked fresh and excellent value. Slightly dated decor, but very good value for money. .......would recommend. Only five minute drive to beach and pavilion.

What more could you ask for at this price....rooms were comfy and well equipped with clean shower, nice tv, and all the stuff you may need! With free parking, delicious breakfast, and brilliant service. Nice and easy drive into town, and the pier nearby is well worth a visit. Highly recommend this place, as a cheap, good value place outside...

Stayed here for 3 nights.Lovely and clean rooms.Just need a bit of modernising. Other than that comfortable stay. Buses run frequently into penarth and Cardiff if you get a all day ticket 3.60 you can use the bus service the same day as many times as you want if you show your bus ticket.

Five of us who had not seen each other for a while decided to get together at the Cefn. I was initially a bit reluctant as previously I had been and beer was very hit and miss. Yesterday no such trouble. Decor a bit tired and could have done with more bar staff on a very busy Sunday afternoon. Two...

Cefn Mably Hotel is a great place to stay when you visit Penarth. I have stayed there for two nights recently and it is not my first visit. Although the hotel is a distance from the city centre, it is completely accessible via well served bus routes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way...

We stayed here because our sister was in hospital in Wales. As it wasn't a leisure visit as such but rather a necessary expense it was great to find this place which was very reasonable and suited our purposes very well. We had a twin room and only paid £50+ for the night (brilliant). The staff were really friendly, the...
