Following reviews we were a bit wary of booking but for the rate we could not refuse a quick getaway.
We have stopped in several hotels in Cardiff but this was one of the best we have encountered.
What made this was the quality of the rooms, it was big well appointed and clean.
Check in was painless and were allowed to check in early.
The spa was excellent and clean. All staff were friendly and welcoming.
I see from the reviews people have complained about the parking charges, unfortunately parking in Cardiff is not great and comparing to Hilton (£20 a night) and Park Plaza (£18 a night). £12 is not that bad. I’m sure if you are prepared to park out of town and walk you will be able to though.
We didn’t eat in the hotel so cannot comment on the food.
You would think the review would be heading for 5* but were a couple of issues that stopped me. I am a light sleeper so could hear some traffic noise, so I would ask for a room at the back. The external windows needed cleaning. The air con worked well but was a bit loud. The shower pressure was adequate but could have been stronger. Whilst the room was clean some of the fixtures were worn and needed replacing.
As a note you are closer to City Road than the town centre so if you are looking for something to eat you may want to use TA to locate somewhere there. I would recommend and will be likely to return in the future.
