Although it's at the top of town, in an unremarkable commercial building blending in to the apartments and offices around it, the standard Park Plaza design and comfort is there and well maintained.
The restaurant and foyer spaces are good and usually quiet.
The rooms are consistently spacious and well kept, but cheekily, they'll always put you on the front of the building overlooking the road and the less exclusive Cardiff nightclubs, unless you want to pay extra to be on the back overlooking the civic centre and museums.
The standard pool, gym and spa are all very nice and free to use, and there is free wifi in rooms. Breakfast is the usual hot and cold buffet, but I maintain that if you plan on eating £12 worth of food before 9am, you should really consider seeing your GP and staying at a health farm. That kind of money for a drink and bowl of cereal isn't ok, whoever is paying for it.
An overall nicer experience than the cheaper hotels, but the rates reflect it and are rarely discounted on the third party websites.
