The welcome was friendly and check-in efficient. They could lend me an ipod charger as I'd forgotten mine. The room was large and nicely furnished with a big desk and handy plug sockets. Kettle with tea and coffee useful and I used the fridge to keep my water cool. The room was quiet and the shower hot and powerful.
The breakfast buffet was amazing, would keep you going all day. It was v busy and the staff rushed about but helped everyone promptly and kept all the displays refilled. Check out easy.

I managed to get a reasonable deal of less than £200 for 2 nights B&B at the Rad so cannot complain too much.
Overall everything was pretty good. The breakfast being spot on for a buffet type affair (top marks to the poached egg chef)
The rooms are ok, clean enough. Could do with Sky Sports on the TV in the room but that's just me.
We were appointed a room with an interconnesting door. I asked to be moved as I had previous noise issues from an adjoining room (not at this hotel) and was swiftly appointed another room. This too had an interconnecting door..... Another move to a 'standard' room and all was well until we tried to find the safe. there was no safe in the room. Not a huge issue to some, but inconvenient having to carry excess cash and cards and keys everywhere with you.
Free drink at the bar for the errors so as I said, no real complaints.
Perfect location for all you need in a great city like Cardiff.
Will definitely stay here again

Room Tip: High floor away from the lifts.

I appreciate the time you put into giving us your thoughts on your stay. Sorry that you had to move around so much to find a room that suited (we'll make sure that doesnt happen again). I will pass your comment about the poached eggs to Kyle (our breakfast chef), he also makes a mean Omelette so make sure you ask when you come back.

Cheers

Fantastic Location for Shopping and all the bars and night life. spotlessly clean and very professional staff. the rooms are modern, the Air con wasn't the best, but quiet and the beds are very comfortable. Stay there! Nuff Said.

Just got back from a weekend break at this lovely hotel! To sum it up it was FANTASTIC!!
From the moment we got there (my boyfriend and i) we loved it. The hotel is right in the centre just where we wanted it and just a few minutes walk from the train station. We were greeted by a lovely receptionist (think it was Anna) who quickly got us checked in and made everything we needed to know very clear :) The room was fab, modern décor and very spacious. We were very pleased with the extremely high standards and this was only a standard room as well! We didn't have breakfast at the hotel but did go for a drink in the bar on the Friday night and that was equally as nice, the prices of drinks were also reasonably priced and we even found them cheaper then some of the bars in Cardiff. Really didn't want to leave as found the stay so lovely and was very pleased that we had chose to stay here for my first trip to Cardiff. We will definitely be staying here again and i would rate this hotel as 5*. Thank you Radisson Blu!

Your review was wonderful to read and really brightened up my day. I will make sure Anna is passed on your comments (she will be chuffed to bits). Come back soon.

This hotel is very close to the shopping centre, restaurants and sight seeing attractions. Despite the rain we were able to walk around the area and see Cardiff Castle, Millenium Stadium and visit local restaurants and pubs. The City Sightseeing Bus has a stop very close by.
There is a good selection of food for breakfast and our meal in the restaurant was lovely.
The rooms have air con and are comfortable and well appointed.

At short notice we had to stay in Cardiff for one night having seen the radison previously we decided to see if there were any vacancies through their web site. Booking was a simple process and when we arrived check in process only took a minuite or two. Our room on the 16th floor had good views over cardiff and the room itself was generous in size with safe, fridge, teamaking , and an espresso coffee machine. Bathroom was again generous in size with shower over the bath with slippers and robes. Location of the hotel puts it right on the doorstep of the city centre approx 5 mins walk from the train station and you cross the road to enter St Davids shopping centre. Breakfast was on a par with most 4 star hotels with a choice of fruit, cereal, cold meats and cheese, continental and full english. Iwould definately recomend this hotel and we shall use it again.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have best views and quieter.
