We stayed here as a family in the beginning of April to watch 'Wicked' at the Millenium Centre. The hotel has a good location, halfway between Cardiff Centre and Cardiff Bay. Its about a 15 minute walk to the hotel from Cardiffs Central train station. This can be a problem for vistors not familiar to the area but if you use Google maps on your smart phone, no problem. The hotel is typical of the HIE francise, clean, modern and overall friendly. We stayed as a family, 2 adults 2 children. Although adequate, the rooms were small for 4 people but comfortable all the same. There are no real room thrills, you get the basics but as a family, we found this hotel sufficient to our needs. One thing which I found good was that there was free WIFI.
The breakfast was good with plenty of choice. No, there are no gourmet selections but whats on offer was enjoyed by all the family. Overall a great hotel perhaps better suited for the Cardiff Bay area attractions rather than the City but with that said, a great alternative. Would stay again.
