I really liked this place. I liked that you have your own entrance to your room. The hotel is dog-friendly and this means that you don't have to disturb other people bringing your dog in and out. We were able to park right by the room. Everything in the room was clean and comfortable. We had our evening meal at the hotel and it was lovely. Breakfast was great. The continental was amazing and if I'd realised how good it was, I probably wouldn't have bothered with the cooked option, though I'm glad I did as I enjoyed it. I'll happily stay again.

We were pushed for time and budget and this little place fitted the bill in terms of availability and budget for a personal quick trip to Cardiff. Basic but a bit tired in terms of décor. Acceptably clean and comfortable. Good breakfast - full English or continental. Not noisy - which surprised me - lots of white vans in the car park and I thought it would be noisy, early in the morning, but they did not wake me up! The carpark is steep - you want a good working handbrake!! Being asked to pay for wi-fi in this day and age is not acceptable - the only downer.

We had room 8 at this hotel if your given this room just walk away. First thing i noticed was the door and frame were rotten . This was just the start. Stains on the wall, mould in the shower a missing mirror. They couldn't even clean the toilet before arrival. Add to this in stead of leaving crockery in the room to make coffee/tea in there were 2 paper cups. When complaining i was given the option of staying at £109 for the night or leaving. We chose to leave and went home thus ruining our quiet weekend away. I would never stay with this group of hotels again.If i could give less than 1 star i would.

This is an utterly soulless place.... dark, depressing and I was only glad I was staying for one night and didn't check in until late so didn't have much choice but to stay. I didn't feel I could walk barefoot on the carpet because it didn't look clean, I kept my shoes on at all times (apart from when in the shower!). The towels were stained. The light above the bed flickered on and off on their own. Everything in the room felt tired. The notice about making noise after 11pm and being fined £150 was a surprise, never seen that before. The smell of smoke from outside seemed to permeate the room. Paper cups, and stirrer sticks instead of china and teaspoons was unusual. Walls were thin (and stained) and we could hear people on the other side. Many of the guests seemed to be leaving early in the morning so we were woken at 6am with doors being banged and people talking in the car park below. On a positive note, I had a reasonable nights sleep. 20 mins of wifi was useful. Check in staff were polite and friendly. This place is in dire need of a refit. Will NOT be staying here again.

Stayed for a wedding nearby, not able to check in until 2 pm, wedding was at 1 pm, so not able to access the room until very late evening. Rooms need renovation, just one grim looking towel between us. Hair dryer worked intermittently and shower turned cold half way through. Beds quite comfy but lots of noise keeping us awake. On the plus side we had a lovely breakfast at a reasonable price £4.50 each. Would probably not stay again as we found it very overpriced at £80.

I wish I had checked TripAdvisor on this one first. It's hidden away behind and industrial estate on the side of a hill. Looks awful when you arrive. Decent and helpful staff on checking in. Room was on the ground floor so dark and dreary. Looked very grubby and in need of a very good clean. The bathroom was pretty disgusting as for the toilet well, best pass on that one. A bottle of polish was left in the room, maybe you are expected to clean the room yourself. The bed looked ok but smelt of fabric freshener, actually I did sleep well until the shower from above started at one in the morning sounding like a waterfall and then the noise outside started up again. The room had an awful smell about it. Very noisy outside the room late at night with guests shouting and with cigarette butts raining down from the first floor. Strong smell of "other" types of smoke as well. I didn't fancy dinner here so eat out. Breakfast was pre-paid which I nearly left without it but changed my mind. It was actually a pretty good cooked full English. The only decent thing about the stay. I would never use this place again, Campanile should be ashamed of themselves for letting this place stay open.

Hairs in shower and on pillows and bed pokey rooms. TV controls dirty phone not been touched thick with dust. Shower ok and did sleep ok but overall very dirty won't stop here again would rather sleep in the van know that's nice and clean.

This hotel is one to avoid dirty smelly room. Other guest smoking weed it Smelt awful. Drunk violent guests keeping us away at 3 in the morning. Staff not helpful and didn't seem to care. Please avoid do not recommend.

The room did have a comfy bed and was a good size, came with teas and a hairdryer which was handy as I forgot mine but it was very dull looking and smelt musky. Bathroom flooring was mouldy and the toilet didn't flush at one point. Could do with a revamp.

Don't stay here ! Pillows, not pillow cases, are filthy and smell of stale perspiration - yuk ! Obviously cheap to attract one-time visitors. If you don't book direct through the hotel's website you have to pay for Wifi. Overall, depressing experience.
