This hotel is in a great location and the staff were helpful and friendly. The attention to detail however was disappointing. The double bed was small and the pillows very uncomfortable. The TV controller didn’t work and nor did the air conditioning. It was impossible to open the window resulting in unpleasant nights. Added to this the water pressure in the shower was poor. Overall not a good experience. Not a place I will use again.

I stayed over night for work trip. Absolutely ideal hotel....receptionist were friendly and efficient, hotel was clean, room was above train station but the windows kept sound out. The breakfast was plentiful, fresh and delicious. Highly recommend this as city hotel with a reasonable price.

Just returned from another overnight stay at the Clayton. I can't praise this hotel enough, the Staff, Rooms, Restaurant and Breakfast are excellent. I must mention James the lovely Trainee Manager who dealt with our booking, he was charming and really friendly, an asset I am sure for the Hotel. The waitress we had in the Restaurant (Nutica) was also lovely, we had previously been served by her and she is really pleasant and cannot do enough for you. Whenever we visit Cardiff this is our hotel of choice and we would not entertain booking anywhere else. .
