This hotel FOR years has been the best hotel in Cardiff - it had a fantastic manager - Irish guy who walk around and talk to guests. Checking everything - bar staff are all model looking. Bizarre in that it has a really nice place to eat. Bd news is that Cardiff now is the best value city in the UK, has FAR FAR too many nice hotels and this one is always more expensive than others. If your taking a woman away for a weekend this is the place for you as its spot spot on - if your spending your own and married stay in one of the other hotels which are also very good but cheaper (Maldron is very nice and Park Inn sometimes is very cheap!)

I was in Cardiff for a few days and having never been there before and knowing I needed something in the city centre I choze park plaza mainly from the reviews here.

I arrived at night and cardiff on a sunday night is very quiet and when I pulled up to the hotel it seemed very generic and I thought to myslef "oh dear this is not going to be good".

But reception greeted me with a warm smile and check in was very hassle free. I had booked just a standard room and was very surprised at how large it was.

Very comfortable bed, excellent water pressure in the shower and I think a great location being in the city centre. Though I did come to find out that when in cardiff everything is about ten minutes away from everything so not sure if it matterd so much about the location.

But again, very pleased with this hotel and if I go back to cardiff I would certainly stay here.

Room Tip: Just get a regular room if you're only staying a day or two they're very large and comfortab...

Stayed here in January for the first time. Opposite a wether spoons and nightclubs - good news it was a Tuesday. Food was very good. Room was freezing and despite 2 calls to reception as heating clearly not working in room the solution was a old and very noisy portable fan.

The level of service was poor and has left a lasting impression on this hotel.

Just returned from a stay at the Park Plaza Hotel in Cardiff. Wow! Fabulous room with the added bonus of being absolutely QUIET!!! Location right in the centre of Cardiff but so peaceful that I did ask if we were the only guests in the hotel ...... Public areas tastefully decorated - modern, minimalist style. Staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Public car park opposite with reduction for hotel guests. An oasis of calm ideal for shopping/leisure break. Thank you Park Plaza - hope to return soon!

Room Tip: If you need a quiet room ask for one on the several inner quadrangles of the hotel - gives you a cha...

We stayed at the Park Plaza for a Christmas Party evening. Despite being a very, very busy night in Cardiff the staff were friendly and professional.
The hotel lobby is modern and is a great place to sit, relax or just people watch. The hotel bar is busy with smart professionals out to have a nice yet slightly expensive drink. The hotel bar can become very busy at weekends but is reasonably easy to get served by it's great team of bar staff.

The rooms at well appointed and modern with comfortable beds and good bathrooms.

I would recommend the hotel but I would also recommend you get a deal on the price...
