Stayed in Talybont North Residence for one nightfor the speedway GP in Cardiff. Very pleasant surroundings, nice campus and the room was very clean and adequate for an overnight stay. I would not hesitate in stopping again for next years GP

On arrival at 8.15pm on a Friday, the whole area was like a ghost town. The 'welcome' was curt, but having got my key, I eventually found the room. The en-suite is a shower/sink/toilet enclosed unit within the room, although functional, not what I expected. The bed was very narrow. Also, the distance from the city centre is much longer than quoted, certainly more than 30 minutes walk.
