Positive Reviews

Good value rooms

While there are some shortcomings to the hotel rooms - namely limited plug sockets and TV channels - most guests agree that they offer good value for money. You'll find they are clean, cosy and more than adequate for a short stay.

Conveniently located for area attractions

Previous guests mention how this hotel provides a good base from which to explore the area. All the attractions of Cardiff and the surrounding areas are within reasonable driving distance. Plus you'll find shops and dining options in the city are plentiful.

Friendly staff

Most reviews indicate that guests have a good impression of the staff at the Travelodge Cardiff M4, with many identifying staff members by name. There are occasional niggles, of course, but for the most part, guests report a positive experience.

Negative Reviews

Expensive food outlets

Given that this hotel is located in a motorway service stop, it should come as little surprise that many guests found the food outlets in the immediate area are overpriced. As the hotel doesn't offer any dining facilities, this may present an issue if you are on a tight budget.

Regular reports of noise

Opinions about whether the rooms are quiet tend to vary. Some guests specifically mention they enjoyed peace and quiet, but others disagree. The severity of the problem seems to depend on the room that you are allocated, so it may be worth requesting a quiet room.

Access may be a problem

There is some indication among reviews of this hotel that access may be limited. Guests report there are many stairs to navigate, so this may be a problem for wheelchair users and those who have prams with them.
