Excellent location
Reviewed 1 day ago

The Clayton Hotel is situated right in the centre of Cardiff, so excellent position for visiting the City. Staff all extremely pleasant and helpful. We had afternoon tea and breakfast in the hotel and both meals were very good.

Stag do
Reviewed 3 days ago

The hotel is easily accessed from the airport the bus stop is directly across the road. The hotel is perfectly located to the Main Street in Cardiff so was ideal for a stag do, being so close to pubs and clubs. One member of staff at check in was rude she must have been having a bad day. The room was nice, breakfast was tasty. Due to its location I would stay again.

Just average, but good value if booked with groupon
Reviewed 3 days ago

I booked this for 4 of us as a groupon voucher.

We were the only ones in the restaurant so the atmosphere was a bit bland and the waiter was rarely in the room. The food was okay....... nothing special and not worth more than what I paid for the groupon voucher.

The location was good and we had a nice view from the window but overall the experience was average.....

I probably wouldn't come here for afternoon tea again, I'd rather pay a little more and get the 5* experience I'd had previously at the st.davids hotel or even the angel hotel which was just a bit better and at the same groupon price!

Fantastic venue and hosts!!

Hired the Clayton for a two day conference and dinner on on the first night. It was great, Sue was amazing to work with and super helpful throughout. The venue was superb and the conference ran so smoothly with the help from Marius especially who was able to handle any issues that arose throughout the two days.

Great conference venue

Great conference venue. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, especially Marius, who looked after our event. Very convenient location, 2 minutes walk to the train station. Clean and comfortable hotel rooms.
