good value for money, would stay again

Overall good value for money, good room size, clean, quality bedding etc, lovely double shower. Outlook from room not very good and had to walk across very busy road on the roundabout to get to the city centre, so not great if you have a large family with smaller children, but this was as expected and not a problem for us. We walked from the hotel to the centre in about 20 mins and to the waterfront in about 20 mins too. Only £5 to get a cab back if you don't want to walk. Does not have a restaurant or proper bar but the cafe suited us fine for snacks an 'all you can eat' buffet breakfast. Not a huge selected at breakfast but perfectly adequate. A large selection of restaurants in Cardiff so we were happy to try those. Ideal as a cheap base to explore Cardiff and would definitely recommend. The only thing that could be improved upon is a better map at reception which shows you the best scenic walk to the waterfront. We asked for directions and were given a map but found the best route by trial and error as the signs were a little misleading. Something the hotel could easily remedy. Would definitely stay again

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Walk to the waterfont and the boat landings (about 30 mins walk) and try a boat trip around Cardiff Bay with a guide to learn about the history of the dock area and its regeneration. Or get a waterbus to the city centre/castle from the Bay and have a tour of the Castle and grounds and stop off at the museum or the huge shopping centre on the walk back.

Weekend away!

The hotel was OK!!! The breakfast area was not large enough to cope with the party of school children who were staying and with whom we happened to coincide our breakfast time! The walk to the city centre appeared far longer than that described in publicity material! In short it was adequate!

Very, very Basic

Very basic with no amenities: no kleenex, no shower cap, teensy bars of soap, no pool or exercise room. Front desk people were rude; could not exchange currency and had no power adapters for electrical circuitry. One night we heard the fire alarm from 3:00-5:00 A.M. Rooms and lounge area were clean. Did not eat breakfast there because we found other places much less expensive. Hotel is not in the center of Cardiff, but it is walkable. There are no sidewalks for quite a way, but still can be safely done. Not bad, but wouldn't stay there again.

St. Faggans gave a great perspective of Welsh life. Full day of enjoyment. Wear good walking shoes. Ask the docents questions because they gladly enjoy sharing their knowledge for a better insight.

Not what it seems.

"Mercure The Lodge Cardiff" is what the heading reads now that I am writing this review, but when I booked the trip it read "Mercure Cardiff City Centre". This hotel is far from being in the city center and is far from what I consider a "luxury hotel". It was clean and the staff were polite, But it was hard to get to sleep with train tracks right outside our window and trains running quite frequently through out the night. Also, you should know that when they say that the breakfast is included, they mean: for an extra charge....and it might be eggs and ham, or just bread and juice -depending on the day. The atmosphere of the hotel is around a 3 star in my opinion. Most of all I felt tricked with the location. We wanted to be in the middle of the city and we were in the warehouse district - about a 10min walk from the outside of town.
