We stayed here for one night for the rugby at the Millennium Stadium which is about a 5 minute walk away from the hotel. We booked the hotel through Secret Escapes so we got a very good deal for our stay here which included a welcome cocktail and full Welsh breakfast buffet.
We arrived quite late to check-in and the staff were very welcoming. We had a room on the 11th floor and it seemed to be a disabled access room so was very spacious. The hotel itself feels very new and the room was very clean with a comfortable bed. It had everything we needed for our quick stopover. Due to it being a Friday night, and such a large hotel in the centre of Cardiff, we were fully expecting it to be noisy in the corridors with people coming back late but we slept right through and didn't hear a thing!
Breakfast was on the 1st floor and felt quite chaotic. Obviously it was a rugby weekend so the hotel was likely to be full but there were people everywhere and we had to wait a few times on the food being replenished at the buffet. There are also only two lifts in this hotel so after breakfast when we went back to our room, we had to wait around 5 minutes for a lift to come. Having two lifts is inadequate for a hotel of this size with 11 plus floors.
We did have a pleasant stay here and would probably stay again when in Cardiff. It was very good value with the Secret Escapes deal so I will be looking out for this again!
