stayed here for a stag do and would definitely stay again. Warm welcome to the hotel by the owners on arrival. Rooms werent amazing but then they didn't need to be. 24 hour bar and an immaculate cooked breakfast in the morning. Great value for money and perfect for these type of occasions.

Hideous!! EXTREMELY RUDE, ABUSE & THREATENING to a group of 6 girls. Did not look to help us out on our friend's hen. The wife took the booking & reassured the maid of honour that no matter who turned up we would be accomodated however when we arrived we were called liars, and HE demaned an extra £25 per person!...

We arrived early afternoon. Day time is not a good time for bubba's place. It was cold & depressing. A bit like a prison cell except I've worked in prisons and at least prisoners get tv's, pictures on the walls & ps3's! We were so cold we had to go into town. Thankfully was just a ten minute (straight &...

Having read some of the negative reviews before staying we as a group were a little concerned about Bubba's Place. Having just spent a night there we can all say we would definately stay at Bubba's again. We came down to Cardiff to watch the rugby so we needed to stay central, have off road parking and most importantly not...

First the plus side - Cheap, friendly staff, good breakfast, warm. Now the not so good -rooms were the worst I have stayed in the UK, generally run down,unpleasant smell in the corridors,never again! I find it hard to believe it is still in business but obviouslty there is a market.

Totally agree with the negative comment below, if only I had read this before going, I had to stay at this place due it being a rugby weekend everywhere else was full up, it was totally disgusting and the floors were totally filthy. Kettle available with no where to plug in. Television didn't work. Tiny rooms, there's a difference between...

The place may not look glamorous, but it is clean and the staff are fantastic and very welcoming. It is a family business that makes you feel very welcome and endeavour to help you in anyway they can. The breakfast was also very good. Would definitely stay here again!! Thanks x
