World Cup tickets; booked!

 

Flights; booked!

 

Accommodation; ######!

 

 

Help required for an old forum member if you please... i'm looking for 1 night for 3 people in Cardiff for the opener. I've just had a look and it's not looking good.

 

I vaguely remember staying in a pub recommended by Maurader last time i was in Cardiff ('ull in Challenge Cup).

 

Cheers

Ben

Ben,

 

Try the Sky Plaza at Cardiff Airport. I managed to get a load of rooms for about £32 each. The Holiday Inn still had rooms available at the Airport too as did a couple of locations in Barry; 20-25mins away via train.

Camping anywhere?

YHA - no availability

 

Camping - Pah, tried that 1 millennium magic, ended up completely forgetting the name of it, trying to walk back at 2am down a road i recognised only to be dragged into a club by some Wigan fans and then staying at some Cardiff student's gaff.

 

Too old now... i think.

Stayed at a decent hotel in Bridgend when I went for Magic weekend - only a few quid on train
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Quick look on booking.com for a triple room :

Roman Lodge Hotel in Newport £79
New Inn Guest House in Bridgend £80
Court Colman Manor in Bridgend £79
Ye Olde Red Lion in Tredegar £65

So rooms still to be had, but compromises on the location.

Laterooms

Holiday Inn Bristol North £104
Malago B & B £85 (Also has single rooms for £48 and twins for £57)
K's apartment (2 bedroom) £90 3 bedroom £110

Try the airport! It is 25mins on the train into the city centre and not silly money in a taxi to get back. I used to live and work another 10mins down the road; excellent location and service.

New in. Is basic b and b but right on the a48 so easy to get to Cardiff.

Court Colman is very grand but about 3 miles out of Bridgend in middle of nowhere - award winning curry restaurant there though.

Rough and ready in the middle of Bridgend. When I went past the other week one of the clientele - Polish - was making anti semitic remarks to her friend across the street. It's gone downhill over the last 18 months.

Mairs b and b or jesmond villas are on the edge of Bridgend town centre by a good pub- the five bells and good access to Cardiff.
