    Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Cardiff Centre

    Loved The Lodge

    from

    We stayed overnight at The Lodge and we had a quad room. This hotel is brillant - the rooms are a good size, really clean and the bathroom was spotless. The staff were really helpful. Good choice - you will not be disappointed.

    Everything was good!

    from

    Everything was clean and well presented. Staff wre helpful, shower was great (room for 2)! Taxi to town cost 3 or alternatively you can walk, which only takes 10-15mins. Breakfast was superb with lots of selection, and you get free tea, coffee or juice 24hrs a day. the only thing I would say is if you dont like feather pillows then either take your own, or book in advance for other pillows.

    Have a great time!

    Amazing!

    from

    This is an excellent hotel.

    The beds are fantastic, really, really comfortable. The rooms are very large. We had a double double room that easily sleeps four adults. The bathrooms are spotless and amazing shower.

    Biggest bonus for us was the free tea, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juice, choc chip muffins, fruit etc etc There were 10 of us on a girls night out in Cardiff and coming back in the early hours of the morning and relaxing in the lobby with hot drinks and muffins was the cherry on the cake!

    We are already arranging out next night out to Cardiff and will be definately staying here again!!

    Great Place!!

    from

    We have just returned from a girls weekend in Cardiff. The Lodge has excellent service, clean rooms, and plenty of refreshments!!!. Wold highly recommend it, just a 5 minute taxi ride from city centre.

    Very satisfied

    from

    We wanted to explore Cardiff so on the strength of favourable reviews of this hotel we decided to spend a night here. We weren't disappointed. Our room was comfortable, clean, quiet and very pleasant. Wonderful shower and excellent wall-mounted flat screen TV. The staff were all very pleasant and welcoming, and the continental breakfast selection was excellent. Three different types of fresh croissants......and we were also offered a full cooked breakfast at no extra charge. I think this may be a new feature. The only slight downside is that you are a bit away from either the centre or the wonderful new Cardiff Bay area, but it is walkeable to the city and you do get free car parking.

    Fantastic!

    from

    what a fantastic hotel, i cant say enough good things about it! it was clean,tidy,modern, staff were very friendly and helpful. the room was excellent, very comfortable with a lovely spacious bathroom.

    there were complimentary drinks (tea coffee juice) , muffins and fruit - not to mention the huge selection at breakfast.

    we will definitely be staying there again!

    Clean, comfortable, excellent value for money

    from

    We stayed here for 1 night mid-week. The double room was clean with 2 big double beds. Also, very quiet. No traffic noise despite being located by a busy road.

    Breakfast was continental, with plenty of choice. Also, you can help yourself to juices, tea, coffee in the lobby area all day.

    Staff were also very helpful. We walked to the city centre, which only took about 15-20 mins.

    A very competitively priced hotel, with all you could want for a stay in Cardiff.

    Like an upmarket travel lodge

    from

    I was attracted to the Lodge by MacDonald Hotel as the room rates were cheaper than many other hotels in central Cardiff.

    When we arrived we were pleasently surprised. A newly built, very modern, spacious hotel with huge superior rooms and nice fittings.

    I would describe this hotel as like an 'upmarket travel lodge'.

    At 75 per room including breakfast the price was good for central Cardiff. The city centre was only a 10 minute stroll away.

    My group and I were running in the Cardiff Marathon event and the hotel laid on an early breakfast. We also negotiated a complimentary late check-out as we did not finish our 26 mile run until early afternoon.

    No other facilities or restaurant though a large free car park and complimentary hot, cold drinks and snacks in the reception were an added bonus.

    Loads of decent restaurants in and around Cardiff.

    Recommended.

    Good quality fittings, excellent service

    from

    Wow, great quality budget. Free refreshments. Will definitely use this again

    Fab stay!!!!

    from

    we stayed at the hotel as a group of 4 young girls on a weekend away in cardiff, we absolutely loved it, it was fantastic! the hotel was stunning, very clean and lovely and new!!!!!!

    the room itself was very clean, has lovely decor and a plasma screen tv, the bathroom is lovely and the shower is massive!

    downstairs in the reception area has lovely seating area and has a bar with tea in every flavour possible, coffee and hot chocolate and also fruit juice machines which is all complimentary, you can also eat choc chip muffins 24 hours a day which are also free.

    we had a fab stay and when we couldnt find fast food at 3 in the morning the staff were very friendly and tried to get a taxi for us to take us somewhere so that we could get some food!

    overall a fantastic stay and i will definitely stay there again!!!!!

    Leaving Party - Greville Smythe Park So thats it we've finished work, our cars are sold and we are all packed up and ready to hit the road to Rio! The only thing left for Loretta & I to do was to celebrate our departure with our family & friends. The weather held out long enough to BBQ the sausages and of course we had to sample a few British drinks before we left. It was Pimms ...

    ... birds I prey tied up, mostly owls. The biggest of them all looked very grumpy and would screech every minute (see video), just once. The guy in charge had a tiny owl on the protective glove and was letting people wear the glove so they could have the owl on their arm. Evelyn had a go and was a little freaked but then relaxed. The owl was very cute and very calm and we both patted it noticing how soft it's feathers were. After exploring all of the castle that we ...

    Newport

    A travel blog entry by mariontrew on Jul 29, 2014

    Staying in the grounds of a stately (small) home for three nights. Nice walking in the park but Treacle has to be on the lead, rather frustrating for her as the place is crawling with squirrels. I spent my time learning to use my new GPS system onto which I have downloaded all the Ordnance Survey maps of the UK. It took me ages to work out how to use it but I think I am ...

    Tonight we had a special treat. We were able to catch up with two special friends from Adelaide, Chrissy Taylor and her daughter Chelsey Perdue. It has been nearly four years since we last saw each other in Sydney and our three hours together flew by. Times like ...
