Stay in the heart of Cardiff Excellent location - show map

The stylish, central Royal Hotel Cardiff is a 2-minute walk from the Principality Stadium (formerly the Millennium Stadium) and a 5-minute walk from the train station and St David's Shopping Centre.

Set in a Grade II listed Victorian building hotel built in 1866, The Royal Hotel now boast modern features like rooms with air conditioning, an LCD TV and free broadband, and some come with views of the Principality Stadium. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the building.

Breakfast is served most mornings in the famous Oak Panelled Scott Room which can seat up to 130 guests and can be used as a wedding and function venue.
