We were booked into the Angel Hotel via a deal we had booked via a regular internet site we use. 1 night with 3 course meal and bottle of wine and breakfast next day. On booking in we came a little early and had a bit of a problem with parking, their car park is very small so would advise looking elswhere if need be, there are plenty because the Milenium Stadium is more or less opposite! The girl on reception helped us to park on their car park and also another member of staff came out to advise also. We went for walk around, Cardiff Castle is directly opposite so great location. We booked in a little later and the room looked out onto the car park not at the front where the castle was but for one night it definately didn't matter at all. The room was reasonable the bed was a bit small just usual double but okay. Bathroom was a good size but the shower was a bit on the "slow side" not enough "oomph" but the water was hot. We went down to dinner and the food was really good, we chose pate for starter which was 8/10 we then chose lamb for the main ( being in Wales you have got to try the Welsh lamb) lol! 9/10 we then chose the cheesecake that was wonderful it was "proper cheesecake in every sense of the word". The following morning breakfast was great ;usual buffet style but good, we then booked out. The staff were very professional and courteous.
We went over to Cardiff Castle and had the tour; really worth paying the little extra for. The bonus was we were right opposite Bute Park and the staff advised us about the water taxi that took us down to Cardiff Bay for the afternoon for £3 each way: brill end to lovely weekend in Cardiff! Would definately go back!
