« Great stay »

Stayed for 3 nights (MOn-Thurs) very clean and modern hotel - seems quite new - staff very helpful and friendly - stayed with my Daughter and had a very pleasant stay - I think all rooms are a double with single bunkbed not a problem for us but if I had been travelling with a friend would have been difficult to share the room - twin beds would have been better (was requested prior to stay) - short walk to town where there are lots of shops restaurants and pubs. Hotel provides a very good continental breakfast - choice of juices tea coffee water toast pastries and croissants cheese cold meats cereals and fruit

I booked two rooms for myself and my work colleague. Firstly, I arrived and checked in which was fine and booked my car in car park for 2 days as the 24-hour clock starts at 12 noon. I then went out for dinner and when I came back there were no spaces left to park. I was told to either park on the road a little way from the hotel or next door at Novotel for twice the amount. As I was by myself in a strange neighbourhood I was not going to find a parking spot on the road away from the hotel. The receptionist kept saying I could go to this street parking lot, I asked her to explain, I then said did she mean parking on the street and she said yes. I ended up parking at the Novotel. The room is basic and cleanish. I had the worst night sleep! I got up twice to check if the window in the room was properly shut as I could hear the outside traffic noise, this went on all through the night. The room was not facing the main road but sideways on, but the quality of the window is sub standard for noise and only had a roller blind which did not minimise the noise. The bed linen in the room was stained and made me feel quite uncomfortable with the idea of sleeping in it! I am a member of IBIS and this is the worst experience ever. I asked my work to cancel the organised reservation at the Travel Lodge to change it to the IBIS, I feel this was a huge mistake!

« We felt very comfortable. »

Apart from a small problem at the start when we were sent to uncleaned rooms (as in still a mess with the bed linen not changed abd rubbish on the floor, not just us being fussy), our stay was really good. We really appreciated the friendly and helpful staff and the tea and coffee facilities.

« Paper thin walls and mysteriously vacant breakfasts »

Very loud people in rooms and corridors. Tiny rooms and Thin walls. Rooms were clean... however there was no shower gel or shampoo and only 1 wafer thin soap. Turning up the next morning to have the breakfast I had ordered online to find they didn't have me on their "list" so was not allowed to have a breakfast. Which kind of underlined the entire experience. Had a good expectation as I had ordered a "triple" room expecting a larger than average room. Arrive to find a single bed squished above a double in a room that can only be described as a single with reduced room as there is a shower pod shoved in there also. Breakfast not existing was just another disappointment.

« Clean room, good value »

The room was clean but quite small. The toilet you had to reverse into and although I am quite small it felt very snug I was in room 318 the toilet roll holder was hanging off its hinges. The shower was also small but as I am small it was okay but my friend had problems with the loo and shower!! The parking was a huge issue. When my friend tried to pay her parking separately the guy on the reception did not have a clue what to do. No one took the room number or the registration number of her car but she paid cash and some how it was credited at the end. On my last day I left the car park to collect my daughter when I returned I could not park. there were two disabled spaces left. I asked if it was okay to park in the disabled space and I was told that I shouldn't really but I could try the Novotel. It was raining and late and I didn't want too. Another lady in her car outside had the same problem. The receptionist came out to the car park stared at the spaces and also the cars and said that paying for a permit does not guarantee a space for guests. I couldn't find a space in the next door car park and left it in the disabled car parking space over night. the next morning the laundry van blocked the car parking space and I had to wait to get out. There doesn't seem to be a reason why you cant have coffee/tea making facilities in your room and you have to hoof off downstairs instead. The Reception staff are young and friendly but English is not their first language and they don't seem to understand simple questions. The room was air conditioned and clean and the stay was not unpleasant. Think you need to sort out the car parking. I visit Cardiff a lot as my daughter lives there now and I found the location very central for the City. I would say for some unknown reason google maps gets confused and sent me to the next road with the flats several times.

« Different »

For the price it was acceptable, using the room purely as somewhere to sleep for one night was okay, but for more than one night or for a business trip where a desk and chair are needed then I wouldnt use Budget again. the lack of tea/coffee facilities in the room were probably the biggest let down. Bed was comfortable, lighting was good, inside hotel noise was okay, noise from outside was a little high, the window seemed to let a lot of sound through.

« Ok stay, but electric car chargers were blocked. »

I picked this hotel, as it had electric car charging. We arrived to find both EV charging bays occupied by Petrol/Diesel cars. I asked the staff to have these moved, but they were, "not able to find the owners." I was, however, allowed to park close enough to connect but, for these charging points, I needed the Polar RFID card (which I don't have, as it's largely pointless for me), so still could not charge. One other thing, was that I booked a room for myself and my son. His bunk was not made up, so we ended sharing the double bed. Not really a problem, but not ideal or impressive.

« Unpleasant stag n hen hotel -avoid »

Hotel managers and Hotel staff are clearly used to the antics of the stag n hen guests using the hotel as a base. They have become desensitised to the grim antics of anti social behaviour of the drunken guests. We spoke about the banging bedroom doors, drunken behaviour, shouting and swearing at 7pm and asked to be moved to a quieter room and were told - "Don't worry if there is any more trouble we have security on later..." We would never stay there again... It was the same price as other hotels - avoid.
