“Very comfortable”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a corner room that was spacious, clean and up to date. The king size bed and fluffy pillows allowed us to have a good night's sleep. The breakfast was excellent in its offerings and the service was very good.

Both Cardiff came as quite a shock to my somewhat negative expecations. The hotel was fantastic but most of that credit boils down to a great staff. Tanya (hope I remembered that correctly!) on reception / check in, was fantastic. Incredibly helpful and accomodating to a somewhat complicated process of offering home hospitality to a family on the road. The rooms were great, the location is perfect, the views are probably the best in the city and the atmosphere is congenial.

Room Tip: High floors facing the city

What a lovely review and, I would agree, Cardiff is a pleasantly surprising city. I will pass on your comments to Tanya (yes, you got her name right) - she will be delighted. Hopefully we can keep on (pleasantly) surprising you in the future.

The location is very good for exploring central Cardiff. The staff are polite and service is efficient. Furniture in the rooms is a bit faded but comfortable. While not the highest quality, it isn't 5 star, its a Radisson blu so you get good quality at a reasonable price.

You make some good points, hopefully you will be back again soon and get a chance to see some of the new furniture we are currently upgrading the rooms with (we all think It's making a big difference to the feel of the room but do feel free to let us know).

Nice hotel close to the train and bus stations, good breakfast paid at the hotel £10 per person, many restaurants and bars nearby, as well as plenty of shopping options. Hotel is close to the Millennium Stadium ideal for sports fans. Friendly staff nothing was to much trouble. At check in we were given a room which was designed for disabled access which we didn't mind, however I would advise not to take the room unless you require that type of accommodation due to the fact that the bathroom was designed as a wet room and the facilities were at a reduced height level not ideal if you have back problems. Take a room on the upper floors for views of the city.

Room Tip: Higher floors have views however the lift takes a long time to arrive on occasions

This is another example of the restrictions of five stars. I would probably give this a slightly lower mark than some I have stayed in but have to give it an average as it is not poor.

The rooms are very nice, parking might be an issue if you have not booked the staff are alright and the breakfast was okay.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Good to hear that you felt our rooms were nice. I do take your point on board regarding the scoring system on here (sometimes it can feel a little restrictive). I appreciate your honesty in any case.

Stayed here with the husband for one night over the bank holiday weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary .

I booked a business class room and I would have to say that it was well worth the extra - I think we were lucky as upon checking in, we were told that we were on the 21st floor (which is right at the top) and the views over the city were absolutely amazing.

The lady upon checking in explained that the business lounge was closed but then gave us vouchers for complimentary drinks/nibbles in the main bar between 6-8pm . These allowed you wine/draft beer/soft drinks etc.

She also went onto explain that part of the business class package was free in room movies/complimentary newspaper the next morning and a special area set aside for breakfast with extra options. It was lovely the following morning to have cafeteires of coffee, selection of juices, pastries etc - with a newspaper to read (there was a selection supplied) if you wished. The breakfast at this hotel was definitely superior to others that we have previously eaten in.

The room itself was spacious and spotlessly clean. The only reason that I haven't given the room five stars is because both myself and my husband felt that with such a big room, that the television needed to be bigger - you felt that you were straining to see it + some of the interior furnishings (mainly the wardrobes) looked like they needed updating.

The extras in these rooms are great though - this included a coffee machine/bathrobe/fridge. It's a service that the hotel certainly seem to have thought about.

We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant so I can't comment on that and we didn't use the car park - preferring to park in the NCP just a few hundred yards down the road.

We will be making a trip to stay overnight in Cardiff again in November and I will definitely be looking to make a return visit

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.
