Perfect location and perfect host, I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I wanted to stay another night but fully booked. Bespoke breakfast, great room and an atmosphere that oozes quality and attention to detail. Spa bath was an unexpected bonus.......I really did not want to leave!

We have stayed twice at this hotel. The location is excellent, rooms are very clean and the service is superb. The hotel manager, Jonathan, is wonderful. He is extremely helpful and friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for him. We will definitely be back.

We felt welcome from the minute we stepped into Jolyons. Warm, cosy lighting, comfortable seating and some local information is there for you in the welcome lounge and the hotel has a great feel about it. Our room was very cute, room 6. Bathroom great, balcony, comfortable bed and everything you need including iron, ironing board and flat screen TV. Little touches make this hotel quite special....I wont spoil it for you, find out for yourselves. Jolyon is the perfect host, attentive, personable and very helpful. Breakfast was great. Perfectly cooked breakfast in a relaxing environment. Thank you Jolyon we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back, Regards Glyn & Alison

A late booking on a short notice business trip to Cardiff. Johnathan called me to help with directions and recommendations for dinner (The excellent Cote Brasserie a stone's throw away). Room quality, cleanliness and quality all excellent. Breakfast was the same high quality as the rest of the stay. Highly recommended.

Excellent and brilliantly located hotel in Cardiff Bay close to Assembly and concert hall. Welcoming and quiet considering location; lots of good eateries nearby. Very good freshly cooked breakfast too! Would definitely go back.

Excellent location for going to operas at the Millennium Centre. Greeted with a welcome cup of tea after a long train journey and a nice room (No 2) with comfortable bed and view of the Millenium Centre. Would have liked an overhead shower rather than a spa bath as I'm disabled but I understand that other rooms do have showers.

This small boutique hotel is located in a listed building largely surrounded by the re-developed Cardiff Bay area with the Millennium cultural centre (home of Welsh National Opera) and the Welsh assembly building very nearby. Ours was a comfortable second-floor room with en suite bathroom and a view over the square in front of the Millennium centre 100metres away. A good cooked breakfast was offered and there was private on-site parking. There are many nearby restaurants catering to every need.Staff were friendly and efficient. Altogether an ideal place for visiting WNO or the Cardiff bay area.

Stayed here sunday just gone. They accommodated for our early check in and it was ideal having parking on site. Welcomed and shown to our room. We were staying in cardiff for a show at the glee club. An ideal location..literally a 2 minute walk to the comedy club, millenium stadium and restaurants! We were in room 2...and what a room it was! Fabulous and comfortable large bed, huge bathroom with a lovely whirlpool bath and wonderful view of the bay. We chose breakfast which was very nice. On check out we were provided extra information regarding the bay and the city centre. We wouldnt hesitate to return!

Stayed here whilst attending Welsh National Opera. Just a couple of minutes across the concourse. Excellent welcome from Jolyon. Pleasant twin room .Posh bathroom but would have preferred a shower rather than the corner bath. Jolyon gave us info on other rooms that do have walk in showers. Breakfast was not included in the rate we booked, but it was provided for us complimentary.Nice quality..but be warned a Glamorgan Sausage has no meat is leek and potato! No licence at the moment but no objection to taking in wine.Shops and restaurants less than a minute away. Everything else you need: tea making facilities, iron and board etc. Will always stay here when visiting WNO in future But needs booking as it gets full frequently.

Stayed here for a night was lovely...from start to finish.....staff are so helpful couldn't do enough for you... lovely deco,room 6 the best lovely big terrace, breakfast highly recommend...... Will definitely go back thank you guy's x
