Stated here for 2 nights as a get away to see Cardiff. Location is perfect for shopping and sightseeing. It's also perfect for rugby matches as the stadium is located around the corner maybe 5 minutes away. It's also right on the train station door way.. The reception staff were very friendly and we got some lovely advice from the...

Clean room, comfortable bed and central location, a very short distance away from the central train station. It's located very close to a number of bars and restaurants. The downside is that you can hear traffic directly outside your window and bars playing annoyingly loud music during the night.

I've stayed in numerous Travelodge's (and hundreds of others...) in both the UK and overseas, so I know to expect when it comes to the basics of staying in a hotel - namely, good value, a clean room and service with a smile. Good value, kind of - but that's where the good point ends... I checked in for a...

Great Travelodge experience. Could see the hotel from the train station. Perfect location for a quick trip away with the kids. Loads of space in our room for 4. We love Cardiff and this was a great way to see the sights on a budget.

Provides decent value accommodation in the city centre. Plus points- room was clean, staff were helpful. I had a decent night's sleep despite some noise from local nightlife. My son complained about his uncomfortable bed. He normally moans a fair bit so I tried it out. It was fabulously uncomfortable and he probably would have been better off in the...

There is a need for some maintenance and tlc with Bath badly chipped and basin and toilet cracked though...

Good quality hotel. Friendly helpful staff. Clean comfortable rooms. The only drawback is the cost of parking but compared to the usual cost of parking in Cardiff it is a bargain. It cost £16 with the hotel but 5 hours in another car park in Cardiff was £22!!!!!
