Reasons for trip


We stayed here for 4 nights in July 2014. At the lodge there is a large car park which is free to use as long as you don't lose your entry ticket and make sure you get it validated at reception when you go out in your car. The room itself was adequate and appears to have recently had a makeover and although not very big it had the usual tea/coffee making facilities and a shower (no bath) nice big towels and it was always very clean. We had a room on the 4th floor which overlooked the road, with the window shut there was barely any noise but as it was warm when we stayed we had it open and we found the traffic noisy, especially during the rush hour but it seemed to quieten down about midnight but as we were tired everynight from looking round Cardiff we slept quite soundly and we didn't have any noise issues from within the lodge. There is a small cafe where you can get a drink, breakfast, 24 hour snacks and a main meal if you want, we had a meal there one night, fish & chips, but weren't very impressed with it but it was OK for what we wanted and it was convenient, I can't comment on the breakfast or snacks as we didn't have any during our stay. It is situated next to the 'Dragon Leisure Centre' where there is a bowling alley, cinema and a number of restaurants and is a couple of minutes walk to the Millenium Centre and a short walk from Mermaid Quay where you can get cruises round Cardiff Bay and to Penarth and visit the Dr. Who Experience and you can also get a water bus into Cardiff Town Centre, there are various restaurants around the bay as well. Also within a few minutes walk of the lodge there is a bus stop for the Cardiff City Sightseeing hop on hop off tour bus. During our stay we were going to the British Speedway Grand Prix at the Millenium Stadium which we were told it was about 20/30 minutes walk but as we have mobility problems we got a bus from right outside the Travelodge into the Town Centre, on the way back we got a taxi which cost us just under £5. If we visit Cardiff again we will definitely consider staying here. Blue Badge Holders if you travel over the Severn Bridge and are a Badge holder it is free to cross but you have to show your badge to the attendant in the booth, we didn't know and it wasn't very well signposted so ended up paying £6.20, even though the badge was displayed on the front dashboard the attendant never informed us our crossing would be free.
