The Royal Hotel Cardiff

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I've stayed at the Royal Hotel Cardiff twice now and it will probably be my preferred hotel to stay in going forward. I do wish the pillows were nicer and there were more outlets available so I wouldn't have to unplug lamps or the TV to charge my phone but otherwise, it's always spectacular when I'm there.

The hotel is located just 1 street away from the Cardiff Train station as well as Coach station. The hotel is fully air-conditioned, with lift and free wifi. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room are not biggest but is reasonable, and clean. Especially impressed by the shampoo and shower gel which are made from organic honey with lemon grass extracts. The hotel is also just few minutes walk away from a variety of good restaurants eg Bill's kitchen, ASK and Jamie Oliver, as well as shopping mall.

Great location as it is near the castle and shops. Great bus system and easy access. Had a few problems that were solved in a timely fashion. A lot of great eateries near by.

Great city center location on St.Mary's pedestrian zone, close to teh castle, stadium and train/bus stations, and not far from Cardiff Bay. Staff were great, rooms were clean and overall an excellent value for the price. Only weird thing was the lack of asoap dish or shelf in the showers, but heated towel racks were a nice touch.
