although the hotel itself is average the staff was extremely helpful at the front desk and at the bar. We're from the states and like our ice so every night we go down and get ice for our thermoses and every night they fill it without questions...we've had three separate bartenders and they've all been great. (also go down for Starbucks coffee in the morning which is served at the bar)
I work for a hotel management company that also renovates and owns a number of hotels back in the states so I have more of a critical but this hotel is clean, the room cleaning staff are very pleasant and helpful...the beds were extremely comfortable (I'm laying on one typing this review)....I would recommend this hotel if you are coming to visit Cardiff. Oh, and don't expect to watch anything good on TV. There are roughly 30 channels and not much on....
P.S. I don't think they see many Americans around here but the people are very kind once you engage them in conversation.
