The photos on the website really don't do these rooms justice - I was surprised by how gorgeous our room was! Huge bed which was so comfy, great bathroom with lovely bath and separate shower, and plenty of space in the room to settle in. It's a shame we had a wedding elsewhere as I would love to have spent more time in the hotel, but if we ever decide to go back to Cardiff, we'll definitely stay here again.
As others have said, parking is quite expensive, but I think it'd be the same wherever you stayed in Cardiff - at least the Park Plaza offer 20% off. Our parking bill came to about £30 for two nights. There's free wifi which is another positive, and as were the free treats and wine in the room as we'd booked an executive room.
There were a couple of negatives which means I can't quite give 5/5. The walls appear to be quite thin so we heard almost everything from the room next door. I'm glad we weren't at the fron of the hotel judging from what others have said on here. The bathroom is looking a bit tired and could do with having a touch up of paint or fixtures refreshed (the tap was a little rusty for example). We also didn't get a "did you have a good stay" or anything like that from reception staff as we left as they seemed to be a bit distracted - I expected exceptional service so it was a shame to not quite have this expectation met.
Other than that, we were more than happy with our stay.
