If you're arriving in Cardiff at Central Station, you're not quite sure where you're going and you've got bags, I'd recommend getting a taxi to this hotel. It's not THAT far but it's a little bit complicated until you've got your bearings - it's about a 10-15 minute stroll into the centre. The hotel foyer is modern and clean; the staff were OK if a little aloof, but it's been built into a very interesting older building - worth a look! The room was OK; the view over the car park was nothing to speak of but I wasn't there for the views, to be fair. The door to the bathroom was difficult to close which made a bit of a racket if you needed to use it in the night. This was reported when I left though so obviously no issues that it wasn't fixed while we were there. The bed was comfortable and I slept well, despite there not being much soundproofing to block any noise from the corridor outside. The shower worked reasonably well, even if the water pressure could have been a bit better there was plenty of hot water. We had a drink in the bar on our return from dinner in the centre which was pleasant; Breakfast was excellent (the pancake maker in particular was great fun!) and the poached eggs that were available on request were superbly cooked. The pool, spa tub, sauna and steam room were very clean and in excellent condition. All in all, it's a good hotel in Cardiff if you don't mind the walk into town, with all the facilities that you would need.
