Map & Directions

Cardiff Central Station is a 15-minute walk, or a 7-minute drive. There is a small car park at the hotel with free parking for guests who reserve a space in advance (be warned if you have a big car, it can be a bit tight). There are also more spaces available in the nearby Sophia Gardens (£10.30 for 24 hours).

"With so many big, boring corporate chain hotels in Cardiff, it's a breath of fresh air", says The Times about the quirky Jolyon's at No.10. The owners have filled this Victorian building with crystal chandeliers, flashes of red and purple, antique armoires and Chesterfield-style armchairs. It's a unique property just 10 minutes from the Millennium Stadium and Cardiff Castle.

The banks of the River Taff and the Taff Trail (which stretches 55 miles to Brecon and is popular with cyclists) are visible from the hotel's windows. You can take a water taxi to the modern Cardiff Bay development where there are restaurants, bars, shops and the Wales Millennium Centre (home to the Welsh National Opera) -- the journey takes 15 minutes.

The hotel itself is home to a lively bar and restaurant, Cwtch Mawr (Welsh for 'big cuddle'). The Wales rugby team reportedly pops in for a beer after training at the stadium, and it is busy until late on the weekends. In the morning, a continental breakfast buffet of cereals, toast and croissants is laid out, with a cooked menu (including Welsh sausages) available to order.

The 21 rooms include Compact, Deluxe and Suite types. There is no air conditioning (although fans are provided), but the décor is soothing here with vintage furniture and a muted colour scheme. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and the Suites have kitchenettes, a separate living room and Japanese-style plunge baths.

Enjoyed Most: The care and attention of the staff.
Other Comments: Small hotel with attention to detail but expensive for an overnight stay
Alan May 03, 2016 Carms, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: The room size was brilliant.
Other Comments: Not the cleanest. Lots of dust, remnants of party poppers from previous guests and none of the glasses or cutlery were washed. Dressing gowns in wardrobe were wet. Don't know if this is from washing or the fact they have been worn recently by someone getting out of the plunge pool...

Enjoyed Most: The food was lovely, we enjoyed our stay, staff very helpful we couldn't get an upgrade on the first night but they accommodated us on the second night of our stay. Good location for walking into Cardiff and bar in the hotel if you don't feel like going out.
Other Comments: Parking is free which is a bonus. The car park is a little tight.
