Liked: Stayed in a double room with my boyfriend. Room was clean and light, we were also really lucky with the view -overlooking the river and the millenium stadium. bed was comfy, we found towels in the room which is nice so we didn't need to rent.Location was great. Staff was helpful and positively nice. It's also nice that they include breakfast and coffee ^^ Nice balcony with heated lamps too if you fancy a smokeDidn't really use kitchen or shared facilities. Good atmosphere at the bar and liked the music they had on

Disliked: One thing that i was so disappointed with was no mirror in the bedroom!!!!! Guys, please sort this out - i found it awful having to wake up and needing to go to the shared bathroom without being able to check i wasn't looking too rough! the building itself is a bit noisy, we could hear the couple upstairs procreating hehe as if they were in our room, same with people walking or moving suitcases etc.

Liked: Stayed here during th rugby World Cup so there was a great atmosphere. The free breakfast was really good- fresh fruit! Great location- only a short walk to the street with all the bars. Staff were really nice and helpful.

Disliked: i thought it was a bit dirty. When I rolled down the blind in our room there was a dead bug stuck to it and it was really dusty. Also no Mirror in the room (private room).
