I stop in a lot of hotels and took my two daughters to see Cardiff and the Royal Mint. The hotels rooms could do with a refresh but clean and tidy. But the hotel staff through out were excellent in every way and made our stay that much more comfortable.

About 5 minutes if that. This hotel is in the perfect location for the majority of Cardiff landmarks. It’s directly opposite Cardiff Castle.

Dear Mary C There is no direct shuttle from the airport, however there is a public bus that runs from Cardiff Airport to the city center. There are taxis at the airport which is another option for you to get to us in the city. please contact me directly at the hotel 02920347213 should you need more assistance. Kind regards Richard
