Booked 1 night at Jolyon's Boutique Hotel as it was very close, about 100yds, to the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. I'm very glad we did, as it was a very nice friendly place, with the warmest welcome from Jonathon. Having stayed in quite a few of the large chain hotels with their faceless, samey sort of rooms, this was...

From the warm welcome, the immaculate, beautiful room, lovely ambience, gorgeous breakfast, friendly personal rapport with the lovely Jonathan I was sad to leave Jolyons after a 2 day business trip to Cardiff. I've never stayed in a nicer hotel quite simply, it was perfect. The room was not only slotlessly clean and well maintained but every little need catered...

The hotel is ideally positioned opposite the Millennium Centre and within minutes walk of all the bars, restaurants and facilities of Mermaid Quay. It is a lovely, friendly cosy place to stay. The staff, in particular, Jonathon , are very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast was amazing. We will definitely visit again!

The Jolyon is a cosy, clean hotel, directly opposite the Milennium theatre and within easy access to the bars and restaurants in the bay. Jonathan was there to meet us on arrival. He was very welcoming and gave us useful information about parking, the area and local transport facilities. Our room was lovely. Breakfast cooked by Francesco was delicious. We'll...

We were shown to room #2. Via a Welsh oak staircase with fab Newel posts. The landing has led wall lighting which cast's diamont patterns. Upon entering we left the 21st century.

My daughter came here several years ago and raved about it so we decided to spend a night here. It was comfortable but I don't think it has been decorated since she came here 5 years ago. Shabby rather than shabby chic - stains on the bedside table and dressing table, and generally looking a bit dog-eared. And I do...

Lovely,friendly little boutique hotel so easily situated for the Millennium Theatre. Jonathan who runs it is great and was easy to get an earlier check-in. Our room was no 3 and had a Moroccan ambience, very cosy. You can park outside over night if you can grab one of spaces for convenience. Little touches to the room made it nice...

The hotel is clean, smart and comfortable. The staff are attentive. The breakfast is lovely. The location can be quite noisy (out of the hotel staff's control). But it is in an excellent location. Parking nearby can be costly.
