“Very Impressed”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed here with my cousin and Aunty. The rooms were impressive for the price we paid, the staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The evening meal was priced reasonably and delicious. I know we will be using this hotel again. Highly recommended.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family

We had a horrible rental car from the Cardiff airport. It was a battleship. The car hire gave us directions that were incorrect, so it took 2 hours to make an 11-mile journey. Then the car would not park properly in the hotel car park. The two gentlemen on duty Wednesday night could not have been nicer of more helpful! They were so considerate to us after such a long journey with such a big car. They told us local calls were 2 quid to make each. OK, high, but fair enough.

It took seven local phone calls to the car hire, again 11 miles away, but we were able to work out a smaller car. Meanwhile the hotel wanted over 50 quid for those calls. The woman on duty and her supervisor were the opposite of helpful. They could only spout policy, over and over like drones, about how the hotel charges outrageously for local calls. It took calling for manager Mr. Peach, who did not appear, and then we were promised a 50% discount on the calls. The supervisor took off only 21 quid, or about 40 percent. Mr. Peach, would you please correct this, praise the gents on duty Wednesday night, and consider posting the rates on the phones like most every other hotel in the world?

Stayed for one night. Handy for the station and the town centre, both just a walk away. Room spotless and stylish with an excellent view of the city (13th floor). Excellent nights sleep for my wife and me. Very little came through the walls from neighbours or from the corridors. Evening meal was a group affair - so it was set and was OK. Starter was a little on the bland side. Main good. Pudding very good. Coffee hmmm!. Breakfast was a buffet, and though we came down a little late - half an hour before the limit of serving - there was nothing to grumble about. Good selection of hot and cold. Would certainly use this hotel again and would recommend it to our friends.

We only stayed the one night on an advanced booking deal which worked out excellent value. Great location and base to shop, explore and just enjoy the city. The hotel is well appointed and provided a superb base for our short stay.

Room Tip: We preferred a room on the higher floors away from the reception area etc, would recommend advanced...

Large chain hotel, probably best in Cardiff, big room King sized comfortable bed. Good bathroom. What you would expect for the price. Nice restaurant for breakfast, but no GF bread. Eggs made to order. Only disappointment was car park was full when we arrived with our hire car to check in, having driven from Pembroke. However driving in Cardiff is difficult to say the least so we returned the car ASAP. Ideal for walking to the big shopping malls and Cardiff Castle. Five min walk to Cardiff Central railway station.

Room Tip: Front facing room had a nice view.

Booked this place purely on reviews and location to the city centre restaurants and shopping, we ate at Jamie's Italian which was less than 1 minute walk...our room was fantastic and outstanding value for money at £89.99 including breakfast which was a real properly done buffet , the rooms where to an excellent standard and just felt like it should cost a lot more money than it was , I've stayed in a lot of hotels in Cardiff but this is by far the best in terms of view, location and value for money... The only thing to let it down is the £10 parking charge which is directly next and to the left of the hotel.. You can access the hotel directly from the car park which is very handy... Had a great stay ... I've tried to book again at this price and couldn't as it was full, I would pick this as my personal number one choice in Cardiff for the above reasons. Yes I would stay again and yes I would recommend it at the right price....and remember they like you to leave the car park by 12 pm... We stayed until 4pm in the car park and had no issues which I also liked..well done great service and time had and given...thank you

Thank you very much for your review, glad to hear that you (and your girlfriend enjoyed a special stay with us). I understand that parking is a bit of a bone of contention in city centre hotels but I am really very happy that you both enjoyed a great stay. Hopefully we will see you before another a year is out !

Kind regards
