Friendly staff, very good room. TV in the bath was a gimmick which didn't work but not a show stopper, breakfasts excellent, didn't have any other meals but judging how busy it was they must be good! Central heating a little tempramental,but portable electric heater provided was good.

This place is great, have visited here a couple of times and have had great nights on both occasions. The food is very good - I would recommend the beef burger and mushroom starter. The service is always very good too. Great place to visit with friends.

We stayed here recently for two nights whilst visitng family, I wanted a good bed instead of an air bed at my husbands brothers and thats what I got!

Stayed for one night as we were going to six nations game. The rooms are very well finished, clean and comfortable. We had dinner and breakfast, good choice and priced reasonably considering how good the food was. Service was great too. Would definitely stay, eat and drink here again!

It is really hard to find a good pub in Cardiff and the Malsters is certainly a great venue. Myself and my friends regularly drink and dine here and absolutely love the food and service; especially the Rib eye steak! With regular specials there is plenty of choice and I would highly recommend a visit.

I went for Sunday lunch with my family. Keeping it brief, the place is lovely, the waiting staff are very attentive and nice and the food was good. The only real issue was that there were only 2 roast potatoes on our plates. I felt this was a little light on tatties. We pleasantly enquired as to whether we could...

First comment - everyone else in our party had good food that they all enjoyed with good size portions. I ordered a main course salad - but was served little more than a starter size bowl of green leaves with a sparse scattering of walnut pieces, less cheese than my wife had on her burger, and a tiny drizzle of...
