If you want to explore the Welsh capital, you’ll struggle to find a location that trumps The Angel Hotel for location. This Victorian landmark property overlooks Cardiff Castle, "the city's leading attraction" (Lonely Planet), and it's within walking distance of other points of interest.

Dating back to 1883, The Angel Hotel is minutes by foot from both the Millennium Stadium -- home to the Welsh national rugby union team -- and Cardiff Castle. Both have been selected as Top Choice Cardiff attractions by Lonely Planet.

The Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay and the St Fagans National History Museum are within a 20-minute drive of The Angel Hotel.

Castell's Restaurant, described as "modern" by The AA Hotel Guide 2015, serves traditional cuisine. We like the sound of the slow-braised lamb with mashed potatoes, red cabbage and a red wine jus and the sea bass fillet with new potatoes, green beans and watercress velouté. The Angel Bar also serves light bites, as well as wine, spirits and beers.

There are 102 bedrooms, all of which have air conditioning, a hairdryer and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms overlook the castle.

This is a dog-friendly hotel and room service is available 24 hours a day.

Enjoyed Most: The size of the room was good and beds comfortable.
Other Comments: The hotel due to position was noisy from traffic and due to being unable to open windows we had to have the fan/again noisy all night otherwise it would have been unbearably hot in April!! Hate to think what it would be like in the summer months. Food quality was disappointing as well.
