This has got to be one of the worst hotels I have stayed at First of all was charged £10 for a key. Then went to my room Which was up 3 flights of stairs and not lift as I went there found the carpet was fried and dangerous ties from the ceiling were hanging from the off outside my...

Stayed here at the beginning of January 2017. This is very well located, right in the middle of the city centre. This is both good and bad, great for walking out to the pubs and night life. Bad for the access as you need to park in the multi story round the corner and walk. The room was basic, but...

Thanks David for your very fair review. We are in the process of painting the rooms. I am delighted that you have enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards, Chris

This hotel has a city central location, though you'd miss it if you weren't specifically looking for it. It's entrance is one aluminium door with a sign above leading to one of the most shabby interiors I've ever encountered. There is no reception, you check in at the hotel across the road. The paintwork is peeling and dirty, and the...

Thank you for your feedback. We shall be painting walls and changing carpets in the New Year. I am glad that you have found the room to be clean and satisfactory. There seems to be some confusion on the room rate which you can check with Booking.com Both rooms were £70 each and then one was cancelled with no penalty...

Reviewed 3 December 2016 via mobile

This is a very basic room, up three steep flights of stairs. Basic needs are catered for but this is not somewhere to stay if you're looking for a romantic getaway or a treat. It's fine for a night out with easy access to town centre, preferably alcohol induced so you don't notice the finer details

Simon6567, Manager at ML Lodge, responded to this review

I am very sorry that you have not enjoyed your stay. Each room has a water heater for the hot water and the one in your room became faulty. We gave you a substantial discount for this. It has since been repaired. We have only just taken over the business and we are working on improving it. Kind regards, Chris

The hotel has new owners who are currently renovating it but they need to stop rentals until they have done so, stayed there this week our room had damp walls and mould on Windows, yes it's cheap but needs to be sorted, although the bed was clean and had tea making facilities, TV, and hangers they need to sort out...

Simon6567, Manager at ML Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you Roy for your feedback. I understand your points. However the only room that had a problem with one of the walls is the one you stayed in. The damage to the drain pipe that caused the problem has now been repaired and the wall will be treated and painted next week. I hope you were satisfied with our...

I don't want to leave a 'bad' review, so I will keep this 'short' and sweet. PROS * Rooms are perfectly adequate and comfortable (though bathrooms really really need an update and the drainage holes in the bathroom floors need cleaning!) *The higher up you go the better the view of Cardiff * For a City Centre location, amazingly cheap....

Thank you Tim for your review. I am glad that you generally have enjoyed your time at the ML Lodge. I realise that there are areas that we can improve on. New owners have just taken over and work is planned in the rooms this year. Sadly for the rates charged I doubt we will ever be able to afford...

Where do I start? When we arrived the notice on the door told us to go to another hotel across the road to check in. When we had our key and walked in there was a strange smell, a mixture of the 4 different air fresheners that were placed at intervals up the stairs and damp I think. The carpet...

I am sorry that you have not enjoyed your stay. We have ordered a new bed and replaced the shower curtain. All of the rooms are getting painted over the next few months as we have just taken over the business. As communicated before to you, other hotels were available but you found them far too expensive. You stayed not...

We decided 5 days prior to our daughters graduation to stay the night ... As a consequence not much accommodation available ... We had room 4, which was a triple room. You have to check in at the Sandringham Hotel across the road and leave deposit for keys, which I thought a little strange. The room gave us somewhere to...

Thank you Tracey for your review. We only have nine rooms so we pay to use the hotel's reception opposite us. I suppose you could call this strange but it is located very close and the procedure is listed on all booking sites. You were handed a piece of paper with the Wi-Fi code that also informs you that a...

Today I returned from Cardiff from seeing a sporting event. As a group of family/friends we have returned to this place for the last 3 years. However this year we were very disappointed with the lack of improvements to the place. In the lodge the stair carpet was threadbare, the headboard on my friends bed was so loose it had...

I am very sorry that you felt disappointed this year. We are new owners and are reviewing all areas. The other hotel where you had breakfast has different owners to us but I have passed on your comments. I hope you may reconsider and stay again with us. Kind regards, Chris
