The location of this hotel is the best thing about it. Very central, a few minutes from Millenium Stadium and 10 minutes walk from Cardiff Central station. The room rates reflect the location rather than what you can expect from the hotel.
Money has been spent in keeping the foyer looking good - but that is where it stops. We were in room 117 - small, poky double room, grey net curtains, shower curtain half on half off, central heating on in July and no way of turning it off, shower gell in container on wall butno other complementary toiletries. I would not have stayed for any more than one night.
The decor in the rest of the hotel is shabby and in desperate need of a revamp and lick of paint.
The evening meal was uninspiring to say
the least and expensive for what was served up. There is certainly no chef working in the kitchen. The waiter however had a wonderful sense of humour and tried his best to make our visit to the restaurant a pleasant
experience. Likewise the breakfast was mediocre at best, plenty of staff but a bit chaotic and unorganised, and the people on the table next to us told off for sitting down without checking in first!
On checkout other people were complaining about the service.
The hotel need to up their game if they are going to charge as if they are an upmarket hotel. They do not deliver a good enough service.
