Rion and I are now in Cardiff.

This is one of our wishlist stops and is actually a bit out of the way for us.
It's as west as we go, and the salty smell of the wind carries traces of the Atlantic with it.

We have come with an objective, and it's thanks to the BBC. We've come for the Doctor Who Experience.

Afternoon Tea for Two

A travel blog entry by jsafnuk


... much deliberation we choose: Smoked salmon and cream cheese, welsh roast beef and horseradish, and aged cheddar with tomato. Earl grey and wild berries tea And a raspberry coconut cake and mango pound cake. Oh and it came with fresh scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, so delicious. After that fantastic meal we tried to get into the castle ...

Left Plymouth this morning for Glastonbury the site of the rock music festival, whilst a bit alternative it is a pretty little village, old buildings etc. Then drove through green English rolling countryside to Bath. Toured the famous Roman baths ( with a few thousand tourists) _ it is however a classic roman site and another attractive English city. Finally crossed the Severn into Wales and spent night at ...

Sandcastles and Cheese

A travel blog entry by jas20j


... in 1903. The village also gave its name to cheddar cheese and is now known for its strawberry growing.

We enjoyed exploring some of the caves together and browsed the quaint food and gift shops in the Cheddar village. For a bit of exercise we climbed the 274 steps of Jacob’s Ladder and then up the tower which gave us beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and reservoir. We enjoyed a hot cheddar and chutney baguette and glass ...

We took the train to Cardiff, Wales today which is 2 hours from London. My cousin, John, whom I have never met, met us at the rail station and gave us a tour of downtown Cardiff. We then drove to a suburb called Penarth right on the coast and climbed to the top of a large hill to their house. It's a 150 year old stone house that has 4 stories and the most amazing garden in the back yard. Sara and I had separate bedrooms on the top floor and from my window you could see ...

    What a Bargain!


    Booked 4 rooms at this hotel for a Saturday night in August.

    Was für ein Schnäppchen!


    Wir buchten 4 Zimmer für einen Samstagabend im August in diesem Hotel.

    Absolutely brilliant!


    Weve just come back from the Etap hotel, and i must say, it was one of the best weekends ever! (Aug 2nd 2007)

    Budget Hotel


    When I first booked this Hotel I realised at this price not to expect the best due to the low cost. but overall I was pleasantly surprised.

    Gem in Cardiff


    Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. With £32 it's one of the cheapest in central cardiff, excluding travelodge when you can get a room for less. Plus it's brand new therefore still pristine.

    Never Ever Again


    Normally stay at the Travel-lodge by the station which I can not fault, but they were full, so tried etap, never ever again. Where do I start! If the web site says something then best presume the opposite! Location: Central Cardiff (its a good 15 min walk down some dodgey streets!), En Suite - A Tiny Shower next to the bed (with a glass door!) and a toilet which you reverse into!, 3 Adults - A Double Bed (well a slab of rock!!) with a bunk bed (and I kid you not) over your head. £5 for a remote control to work the TV, No Staff after 9pm, the thinest walls ever (At least we could agree with comments coming from the room next door, that was they thought they were in hell!!) I could go on and on and on,

    Okay place; good deal


    I agree with AlisonCI's review that this place is a bargain at £32 per room. Unless you can find one of those Travelodge's £15 a night deal, this is the next best thing.

    Viel Teenie-Lärm


    Wir waren dort 4 Nächte Ende April 07. Das Hotel entspricht genau der ausführlichen Beschreibung von AlisonCl vom 16.4.07. Es ist ganz neu, Preis sehr günstig, liegt gut zwischen Zentrum und Bay. Umgebung ist Industriebrache mit Neubauten. Das Personal war sehr freundlich, war bei Beschwerden allerdings wenig engagiert. Das Frühstück war einfach, aber ok. Negativ war vor allem der Lärm: Nachts viele schwer betrunkene junge Leute, die auf dem Flur randalierten, 2 mal während unseres Aufenthalts nachts gegen 02.00 Uhr falscher Feueralarm. Das Internet funktionierte nur an einem der 4 Tage, Beschwerden brachten keine Besserung. Reinigung von Waschbecken und Toilette mangelhaft. Parkplatz teilweise überfüllt. Umständlich war die Bedienung des Fahrstuhls mithilfe der Zimmercodekarte. Das Lesegerät akzeptierte die Karte oft erst nach 6-8 Versuchen.

    Excellent budget hotel, clean and functionable, 5mins walk to city centre


    I stayed at this hotel for one night in April and was little apprehensive about the accommodation just because of the low price of

    Brand new bargain hotel


    We stayed here for three days at Easter 2007, shortly after the hotel opened. We'd never stayed in an Etap before but this was about the only affordable hotel that had some availability on Easter Saturday when we booked (although it too was in the event).
