    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!!!!!

    Day 46 London

    ... check it out. This was once the main fortress for London but from the outside really didn't look that impressive. We paid our £20 each and went inside. We were really lucky to catch the last guided tour of the day with a traditional Beefeater who is a Yeomen Warder of her majesty's royal palace. This guy knew his stuff and the tour was really interesting. Some very dark history around ...

    We got up reasonably early to go and visit Imogen's Nan in hospital, she had a broken ankle. It was also her Grandgrads 80th birthday so we had a nice lunch in Hereford at a pub. Nice chilled day and nice to meet Imogen's grandparents. We stayed at Imogen's parents place and watched a movie. Pretty quiet day but nice all the ...

    ... hah. The club we were in was a little average and I got hit on twice haha. We booked a taxi for 12:30 but decided to stay out longer because we were having a good time. We ended up at a gay bar which was actually great fun. Imogen was grinding with this gay bloke and it was hilarious! We ended up going home at about 1:30 and got stuffed around with taxis.. Imogen threw a tantrum, pretty funny actually. Good ...

    ... imply that the owners were wealthy enough to put pigment in the whitewash. The pig sty was round as pigs naturally burrow into a corner and therefore they found a circular sty more difficult to get out of. The pigs were great recyclers - they ate the household scraps and then their meat provided food, bristles for brushes, skin for leather, blood for black pudding and bladder for a ...

    ... after being restored by one of the later Bute Marquess's. A little over 60 years ago, the castle was sold to the city of Cardiff for the sum of 50 Pounds! We enjoyed our time wandering the castle grounds and getting some new history!

    From here, it was back to the hotel for the night. After being up so early, it was a long day, so we decided to turn in early. Tomorrow, it's off to see the queen!! ...
