Please book a hotel well in advance. Cardiff is a tourist destination and hotels can fill up. Two large hotels very close to the School of Mathematics are:
There are many other hotels online, including a number of Bed and Breakfast guesthouses in Cathedral Road, approximately 30 minutes' walk from the School. Recent visitors have indicated a preference for this B+B and this small hotel.
