We enjoyed a couple of very nice days in Cardiff, which gave us time to enjoy the city’s shops (although the lack of independent retailers is always something we bemoan about the UK high street), the bay and the beautiful collections of the National Museum. We were also to enjoy Welsh hospitality at the Lincoln House, which was reasonably easy to find and offered parking at the back.
The hotel is located in a leafy residential area of Cardiff, but eateries also abound. Coming from France, we always welcome these tasty, innovative and inexpensive dinner options.
After a friendly welcome, we were led upstairs (no lift) to a spacious but slightly dated room, which was also far too hot on that day, although this level of heat is really exceptional for Cardiff. There was also a problem with water evacuation in the shower. Nevertheless, the room was clean, the bed comfortable and wifi available.
Definitely the highlight of the stay as far as I am concerned, as it is cooked to order. Make sure you try the laverbread.
£180 (€210) for two nights and four breakfasts. This is quite good value for money if you are looking for a quintessentially British experience away from the international chains, which also offer reasonable options in Cardiff.
