Just so you get the right balance from the start, I enjoyed my stay.
Pros: Smart service almost throughout my stay. Decent price for a central Cardiff stay. Room 531 was quiet. Breakfast buffet is extensive and really rather good. Service at breakfast and in the bar was attentive and very professional. Cocktails excellent for £8, especially mojito. Room was large and had all mod cons. Nice bathroom with separate shower. Valet parking great. Fitness and swimming available, nice towels.
Cons: Scrambled egg at breakfast - try again guys. Your fried eggs are fresh cooked and great. Your scrambled... split. Eurgh. Vacuum under the bed please. No bell hop to help with luggage on arrival. Lobby toilets are a maze away. Hotel is all a bit compact - limited lobby space given over to a large Costa. Swimming pool and changing cramped low ceilings, but clean and professional.
The real downside - and if you love your internet you need to take this into account - the wifi in the hotel is terrible. Lots of access points, but loads of contention and awful speeds. Luckily not an issue for me - but for business.... omg!More
