Like visiting your mum Anne and David are lovely hosts. Very welcoming, and thoughtful. Anne does so much to look after you, even offering sandwiches for the day, letting me come back for a shower later in the afternoon - not having to checkout strictly in the morning. Stayed here every year I've been to Bridgend.

Pocket Guide: 2 stars Hotels in Cardiff

For the more budget-conscious, there is a good range of two star accommodation in and around Cardiff that can be booked through Expedia. There are several choices in the vibrant city centre, as well as a little further out of the city, and you can also choose between hotels, guesthouses, B&Bs and inns. Choose accommodation in the city centre if you want to take advantage of the shopping, eating and drinking, nightlife and entertainment that the capital of Wales has to offer. Or stay in the surrounding area if you’d prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of the city at night

Cardiff is one of the top shopping destinations in the UK, and most big brands and high street chains have a strong presence here. There are several modern shopping centres, including the St. David’s Shopping Centre, the Capitol Shopping Centre, Queen’s Arcade, Queen’s West Shopping Centre and Capital Retail Park.

The city is home to six Victorian arcades, with High Street Arcade, Duke Street Arcade and Castle Arcade in the Castle Quarter and the Royal Arcade, Wyndham Arcade and Morgan Arcade nearby. These historic buildings are packed with unique and interesting shops, including the oldest record shop in the world, which has operated since 1894. Cardiff also has a Victorian indoor market, where you can buy anything from fresh local produce to clothes, haircuts, electrical goods and jewellery.

For lovers of food and drink, Cardiff has a huge selection of restaurants, cafes and gastro pubs serving everything from traditional Welsh and British food, international cuisine and high quality pub grub to the most upmarket haute cuisine. The city is bursting with pubs and bars, offering craft beers, local ales, and anything else you might desire.

Cardiff has a very healthy entertainment scene, with many live music venues, theatres, art galleries and museums. You could catch a big gig by a famous band, or a tiny one by an upcoming act, watch a play or a musical, attend a ballet or the opera, or visit an exhibition.

If you’re looking for a more relaxing break, and would rather get away from the busy city in the evenings, you have several choices of two star accommodation in the surrounding area. You could stay in Pontyclun, Bridgend, Chepstow, Newport or Barry, in smart budget hotels or cosy inns and guesthouses. It might take you a little longer to get into the city, but you will be conveniently located to take advantage of the many attractions in the countryside around Cardiff, as well as the recreational activities on offer.

Castles, museums, nature reserves, stately homes and gardens, family farms and theme parks are just some of the things that can be found in the area around Cardiff, while available recreational activities include golf, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, sailing, rafting, scuba diving, windsurfing, parasailing and more.

If you book your two star accommodation through Expedia, you can expect good service, a useful range of facilities, and a warm welcome.
