We had a good stay. The hotel is very conveniently located in the city center. The parking situation is a draw back. Especially if you do not know about the back door for loading and unloading. The only thing that was a problem was that we arrived at 2 check in was not until 3 and even though the room was ready the only way to check in early was to pay £10. In most other locations if the room is ready they will allow you to check in early.

This is a very nice hotel and very easy to get to from the train station. Right in the center of town and very clean. Only problem was the noise from the establishment next door - very loud music . Not sure if this happens every night as we were only there one night.

The Royal Cardiff hotel was a very nice hotel with good service and comfortable rooms. It was in the center of town only a few blocks from Cardiff Castle. It had very reasonable rates and we would stay again if we returned.
