Stayed one night, room was furnished nicely but rather oddly arranged. Lots of wasted space.Bathroom not big enough for a full size bath so half size bath(why bother?!) and waterfall overhead shower.Neither worked well in the room as the shower screen didn't prevent water spraying everywhere. Rather alarming to realise that unless blind pulled right down you were able to be seen from neighbouring office blocks! Nice towels and toiletries but clearly not been thought through as a bathroom by the designers/owners.. Definitely style over sense here
Bed was lovely, nice linen, rather warm so a fan would have been a great addition to get some air flow but I do realise Cardiff weather doesn't justify spending on aircon and the underfloor heating etc would have been great in winter. No bedside table one side of the bed which was a little odd
We went to eat in the bar but they'd run out of several things(inc steak) and offered a "special" which sounded like a series of small portions of things they didn't have enough to serve up as full portions -most strange!
Anyway we went to the mochyn du a short walk away on the advice of the staff and enjoyed a nice evening there.
Such a shame it didn't live up to the promise of the reputation/website.. Nice stay, wouldn't be put off returning but for a supposed "boutique" hotel it really needs some work to put it into that category. We skipped breakfast next day, it wasn't included anyway and decided we'd rather stay in bed!
