“Gorgeous place - best hotel in Cardiff!”
Reviewed 12 November 2012 via mobile

Fab stay. Spotless rooms, yummy breakfast and such a classy feel to reception and dining rooms. We had a balcony room overlooking the city - amazing view of the firework display on the sat night. Decor in rooms starting to look a bit tired now but I understand a rolling refurbishment plan is underway. Thanks to staff for another lovely stay!

A high quality, country house hotel, in a fine position, overlooking Cardiff. Selected for the location with ready access to town and motorway. Friendly welcome with a decent room allocation. A ground floor room, with garden view and small covered sitting area. Spacious, nicely decorated bedroom with good size bathroom. Modern and functional, except for the bidet water feed which I forgot to mention to reception on departure. A minor detail which did not detract from the overall hotel experience.

Enjoyed the restaurant experience. Excellent service from a capable team. A decent menu with good wine selection. A couple of items missing from the menu but not a show stopper. Thought the food was excellent at both dinner and breakfast with high quality service.

Happy to revisit and recommend this quality hotel, where a high standard of customer service appears to be the norm.

I can only apologise for the lateness in posting this review - my partner and I stayed at this hotel last February. Having now appraised all our hotel stays in 2012, this hotel genuinely exceeded all our expectations and scores top marks for customer service, value for money, excellent cuisine ( I can highly recommend the hake in citrus sauce),and a nicely appointed room with lovely views. The booking was last minute for an unplanned visit to Wales - we have fond memories of a very pleasant stay here and thoroughly recommend it.

Recently stayed at this hotel when my husband and I went to see family.
It was a really nice place to stay. The view over Cardiff was really lovely it was a great setting . It is very clean, i was very impressed as I do expect a high standard, the room was really spacious and the food divine! In addition all the staff we had contact with were really pleasant and helpful.
Would definately stay at this hotel again.

We used our Tesco vouchers for this weekend and were very sruprised when we got there. We knew it was a Plus Hotel but it really was lovely. Our room was right above the front door (23) and it had the most incredible views over the valley and into Cardiff Bay
The room was very spacious, bathroom was lovely and very nice toiletries
We stayed in the first night and ate in the restaurant - it was x3 course £35 and was good. I had Pigeon Breast followed by Venison - all very nice. The breakfast was nice although could have been slightly hotter and they clear up on the stoke of 10am so don't go too late
We got a taxi into Cardiff and spent the day there ending up in the bay where there are a good choice of places to eat
Would definitely recommend the hotel especially if you have vouchers - it cost us £70 in vouchers = £210 and we added £18
Be careful with sat-nav - do not use the Hotel address - it will ask you to stop in the middle of the motorway ! check the website for directions

Room Tip: Room 23 was very nice with lovely views but they all seemed ok

Beautiful setting overlooking Cardiff. Room adequate, comfortable and very clean. All staff friendly, especially the young waiter and waitress serving breakfast. Room service did not take too long and the meal was hot tasty and filling. No complaints at all. No hesitation in recommending this hotel and I will be staying again.
