Recent guest reviews

Stayed at this hotel after running the Cardiff Half Marathon. Excellent location in the very center of the City helped my legs recover. Did not have to walk far to eat or go out that evening. Friendly staff and a very nice room with a very comfortable bed. All in all a very good price, will be staying there again for next years race.

Was in Cardiff for a gig so decided to book this hotel directly with them rather than a comparison website. It was cheaper that way and included a £5 voucher for the bar. When i arrived i was told they had upgraded my room which was very nice and had a big comfertable bed, nice shower and very good shower gels and shampoos, there was even a complimentary bottle of wine which i decided not to drink. Hotel is in a very good location, very close to the rugby stadium on the main street. My room was okay for noise and was not woken from outside noise. I would stay again in the future.

Came over from London for the night for our anniversary. Our stay was lovely, the hotel staff even covered the bed in flower petals and left a card. The room was almost perfect, the only thing was we didn’t have a fridge. We had a bottle of champagne but the staff provided us with an ice bucket so it wasn’t too annoying! Only other thing was the coffee provided was decaf, this might have just been a mistake though. Overall friendly staff, lovely room and fantastic location!! Thank you

Just returned from a night stay during a rugby international. Understand and expect some higher prices when demand increases but no way did this justify 250 / night Excluding breakfast. Quality was average. Location very good.

I booked one of the romantic packages with a executive room for one night and we enjoyed the room and the bathtub. We considered the service unfriendly though. Included in the package is breakfast. We checked in sunday night and have been told the breakfast is until 10:30 the next day. Next day we went downstairs at 10:07 and got denied to eat something since breakfast ist until 10am weekdays in an unfriendly way. Maybe we messed up the times, I don't blame the hotel for have breakfast until 10am weekdays. But I expect hotel staff to be friendly and insightful or understanding and open for a compromise when it comes to customers and their needs.

Excellent location in the centre of Cardiff, ideal for Shopping or night out. We stayed as a party of 4. Rooms were lovely, clean and very quiet. Bar facilities also great and by booking online direct we received a £5.00 voucher to spend in the bar. Would recommend based on the location.

Stayed with my wife for her birthday for two nights from 29th to 31st October. Stayed in a deluxe room. Absolutely wonderful, petals covering the bed, bottle of wine in a ice bucket waiting for us. Mini fridge and safe in the room. The breakfast was wonderful every thing on offer from full cooked beakfast to fresh fruit, cold meats and cheeses, pastries and cereal's. Just got to mention the staff from reception to housekeeping nothing was too much trouble and so friendly and polite. If you're looking for a stay in Cardiff look no further this hotel is fantastic value and right in the city centre. You will not be disappointed. Can't wait for our next visit. Thanks again for a fabulous time. Mike & Sue.

Went to Cardiff just for a night and chose to stay in the Royal Hotel, not really knowing where the hotel was. Lots of people said that it's in a very vibrant but noisy part of Cardiff and would regret staying there. However we found that the location was perfect and the hotel itself was amazing. Clean, modern and very spacious. We couldn't hear a thing at night even though there were pubs and clubs very close by. Breakfast was excellent, and parking was convenient in the local NCP car park. We will definitely stay in the Royal Hotel again.

Before I had arrived I emailed to request a room upgrade as a surprise for my fiancé. The member of staff, Scott, was so helpful and efficient and made sure everything was perfect. The room was as expected, the location could not be more central and the breakfast was varied and plentiful. The staff were all so friendly- a smile really makes all the difference!

Lovely weekend stay at The Royal. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Lovely room spotlessly clean overlooking the main street - great for watching the nightlife! Breakfast was good with plenty tho choose from with the added bonus of being able to take away a piece of fruit or a muffin for our journey home. All in all a great hotel. Thank You.
