Clayton Hotel Cardiff, Cardiff
Second stay at this hotel. Clean and appears to be well maintained. The hotel staff that I came into contact with (really only on check-in and check-out) were pleasant and helpful. Very convenient for train station and airport bus stop is practically outside the hotel.
