We just stayed with our two young children. Room was big enough with the children sleeping on a pullout sofa- must say it looked small and we had mid night fights due to lack of space. Room layed out well and once we put away the sofa bed there was plenty of space for the girls to play. There was a tiny fridge which we used to keep a pint of milk and a couple if cans - it's only stocked with water which was fine for us.
I'd recommend taking ear plugs as your get a lot of corridor door noise and you can hear adjacent rooms - probably be awful if your neighbours were rowdy...
We had access to a swimming pool with free towels- water is on the cold side! The sauna, spa pool and steam are lovely and hot and welcome after a bracing swim. We went 3 times and it was always busy. The gym is a bit basic but you can complete a full workout.
On site parking is £9 per 24 hours- get the impression it's money well spent as we saw a car with its wheels removed overnight on a side road.
The location is ok - 10 mins into the centre through pretty grotty wasteland. Cardiff bay was too far for us to walk with the kids- but parking at mermaid bay only £1 an hour.
We would probably stay again but average.
