Score from 849 reviews Good
great room, friendly staff, excellent breakfast and tight in the middle of Cardiff.
The location is very good, the room was ok.
the windows we did not like, there was a window could see next door, the curtain could not fully covered.and the water was leaking out from the shower room.
the bed was very comfortable and the room was lovely definitely worth the money.
the room was cold and the sausages at breakfast were not very nice, also there was no food on the Sunday evening which I think would make more money.
room was nice size, and king size bed!
not clean in areas behind the bed/cabinets Duvet was too small for the king size bed had to ask the hotel to change it but they came in whilst we were out and just remade it! Staff were very transactional
excellent place. everything perfect
Hot breakfast very late in being brought out Kept awake during the night from street noise (clubbers on the street - not the hotel's fault - but need better soundproofing in rooms)
great location right in the heart of Cardiff nightlife.
seemed to be a problem with water pressure in our room, both shower and sink would stop mid flow. Bathroom was tired and grouting was in poor condition
The pillows were different class and the location was great!! The shower was lovely as well
Hotel staff were rude!! Drinks and were over priced, and bed was very firm which wasn't to my taste!! Room was very basic
It was very central for shopping and leisure. Very comfortable for relaxing, being disabled i couldn't be out all day and evening, so comfort in the room was essential.
Location is fantastic, beds are very comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful on check in/out.
My second stay at The Royal in 6 months. Seems standards of cleanliness have slipped massively since my first stay - was almost tempted to go get a bottle of bleach and a duster from reception. Mildew and residue in shower, room needed a good dusting! Noticed a few cobwebs and heavy dust. Window was also broken and actually falling out, chair in room had 3 of the smaller feet of 4 broken so chair wobbled. Wifi didn't work. Was a good job room was used for a night of romance so it went unnoticed until morning/check out. Will however be complaining to hotel directly as I feel strong this hotel has huge potential and is a bit of a hidden gem in the city but if standards are not raised it'll be doomed to fail.
Location & cost superb
Good location for our needs & that is all.
Dirty room, cleaners need training!!
Comfortable modern room ,tea making facilities ,centrally located for shopping ,eating ,theatre and pubs etc etc
Comfey bed. Good toiletries, bee shampoo and shower gel.
Very poor welcome when we first arrived at the hotel. We arrived early just to see if the room was possibly ready early, was greeted by a very rude member of staff. Don't bother trying to check in early here! You'll be able to leave your bags at reception but will get a very rude welcome if you are met by the lady who greeted us. Other staff where freindly, however no directions to your room after we checked in, we had to ask for these, didn't feel like a warm welcome at all. Room was stinking of bleach when we got there, someone had obviously been sick in the room and this attempt to cover it up. Thought Id treat us to a four star hotel, wouldn't call the royal four star. I would recommend a budget hotel instead.
Right in middle of the city. Everything convenient. Staff gave helpful advice re transport.
IN THE CENTER OF CARDIFF
THE ROOM WAS VERY SMALL VERY HOT NEAR THE ROAD, WITH LOTS OF DISTURBING ROAD NOISE
The staff are very nice. Excellent position in the centre of Cardiff. I liked the fact that are prepared to contribute towards your parking fees in the nearby car park as the hotel doesn't have any parking.
had a good deal.great location.good size room and very comfy bed.thought it might be noisy due to location but it wasn't.
Room was excellent,clean and tidy.Hotel close to most pubs and restaurants.Breakfast was very nice.
Have stayed in this hotel three times every time the staff have been extremely friendly and welcome I like that they will take your bags before check in so we can shop without having to carry our bags around. It has a very modern look in the bedrooms this time we stayed on the side near all the shops and pubsand was rather noisey but Wales was playing rugby but the other two times we did not have that problem we love it here
On our last visit our shower was dripping all night and our pillows were the best
Rooms were lovely, comfortable bed.
Waited 40 minutes for breakfast and it was awful, so expensive for what you got!
Pancakes were yummy! Room and bathroomAre a good Size. I'll stay again
The dining room could use a re-vamp. It doesn't "fit" with the rest of the new style of hotel decor. Also stairs coming into property off The high street - not great with a suitcase.
