We went on a business trip to a conference hosted by the Radisson, stayed there for five nights. Location is very central, five minute walk from Cardiff Central train station. Check-in was smooth. The room was located on the 16th floor, and was absolutely fabulous. Brand new bathroom with a big tub, colorful design of the room, tea, coffee and hot chocolate facilities, free wi-fi, big tv, comfortable bed (those sheets! three pillows!). The breakfast buffet was enormous, with 8 kinds of fresh fruit, all kinds of nuts and dried fruit, English breakfast, continental breakfast, all kinds of juices, .. I miss it already. If I have to think of a negative issue, it would be the elevators: 2 is fairly limited for such a big hotel so it often took a long time to get up/down. There is a 'gym', for free, but is limited as well: four machines: one treadmill, a bike, a rowing machine and a step. On the other hand, there was never anyone there, so it does not matter.
If I would go back to Cardiff (the city was a bit of a disappointment, I must say), I would absolutely stay here again.
With regard to their hosting of the conference : very good, with attention to detail. Big lunch buffet for the participants, tea, coffee and cookies at every break, nice rooms.

I’m sorry you are missing us already, but thank you for sharing your experiences with us.
I’m so pleased that you were delighted with your room, conference facilities and of course the great food. I appreciate your comments regarding the number of lifts, however we do try and manage check ins so that this doesn’t become a problem. I do hope that when you come back we can have our concierge spend a little time introducing you to some real gems in Cardiff, and hopefully you’ll change your mind.
I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
