This hotel is obviously converted from an office block, so lacks a little in charm, but has a long list of features to make up for it.
Firstly everything is generously spaced. The bedrooms are big, with a decent sitting area - and fantastic views across the city. There is also a good sized bar and the gym is well-equipped, without being that flashy. I didn't use the pool, but I had a peek and it look reasonable.
The location is just out of the town centre and that has its good and bad points - It makes it much quieter than the city centre hotels because there aren't the clubs and bars nearby, but it is just a tiny bit out of the way. It is very handy for Queens St station, however, which has a regular, quick and cheap shuttle service down to Cardiff Bay.
My partner stays here regularly and says the service has always been very good before - we had a few niggles during my stay and seemed to be on the phone to reception a lot, but I'm going to put that down to a bad day.
We had a room rate that included breakfast and wifi - both of these are over-priced if you have to pay for them. Breakfast was the typical big hotel offering.
One final point about something I always want to know myself - the windows don't open, so it is aircon only.
