Wonderfully located only a 5 minutes walk from Cardiff Central Station, and easy to find. Centrally located, with Cardiff Castle, shopping & restaurants 10 minutes walk away.
They happily stored our luggage as we arrived too early for check-in, and same on check-out (we explored Cardiff Bay before our afternoon train).
Oddly laid out, as reception is on the 1st floor (there is a lift).
Our room was fantastic & spacious, with a large comfy bed, sofa, big TV, tea/coffee point. The bathroom was nicely stocked too.
The reception staff could have been a tad more smiley and welcome.
No on-site parking so we travelled from Bristol on the train.
A little noisy at night, but nothing unexpected for a weekend in a city centre.
