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).

Rooms & Rates

"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.

Lunch was amazing!

The booking stated 'early check in and room upgrade, subject to availability' We didn't receive either. Also had to tell them about the £15 food voucher before we was given it. They also said breakfast wasn't included so I had to query.

The location was great and within walking distance of Sophia Gardens, Bute Park and the water taxi into Cardiff Bay was very enjoyable - we went on the Aquabus and the captain gave lots of information on our journey down the Taff.
