4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Excellent location, central to train station, shopping and dining options. Always a friendly welcome at reception. Comfortable bed with nice relaxing décor. Tracey provided a genuine friendly welcome each morning. Breakfast is good, great selection including porridge, which always wins brownie points in my book as it my breakfast of preference. Also lots of fresh fruit and cooked options. Had room service on my stay, which I can also recommend.
Let it two late to book a treatment at the spa and was booked out when I tried to use but shall definitely be staying here on my next trip to Cardiff so will book in advance next time.

Having stayed in numerous hotels in Cardiff (on business and pleasure) I have to say this is the best. The rooms were nicely maintained and clean. The breakfast quality was excellent. If you want a quiet night at the weekend I would suggest you book a City Hall view as Greyfriars is quite the party area at night. A truly well run hotel.

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.

We spent 2 nights at the Park Plaza at the start of a week's holiday in Wales. It definitely exceeded my expectations - our room was spacious, modern and clean with a huge comfy bed and crisp white linen, and surprisingly quiet given the number of hen parties going on!. All the staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The hotel is perfectly located for all the city attractions and free access to the leisure suite was a bonus. I'd have no hesitation in staying here again.

We booked a two night trip away to Cardiff and choose hotel because of the price, location, spa and pool and that fact it's rated highly on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The staff were really attentive, the room was fantastic, the spa and pool area were also really well maintained and a good size. There's not many hotels you come across that I can't find anything wrong with, but this one I couldn't. Everywhere was spotless and up to a high standard. The location in Cardiff was perfect. We were really impressed.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room, as the street facing rooms could be noisy (clubs/bars outside!)

Stayed at the hotel during a recent business trip to Cardiff. The rooms were large and had lots of outside light. Beds was very comfortable and the breakfast was great. The gym is large and can accommodate several people working out. Only had 1 issue of no hot water on 1 day and the staff immediately worked the issue and got it fixed. Also, staff always greets you in the morning and evenings.

As I live in Cardiff it is not often that I would choose to stay in one of Cardiff's great hotels. It was my birthday and we had given up our bed at home to my brother and his partner as they had a a small baby and my parents could babysit. It was very bizarre as we were only 30 mins form our house but it was worth every penny. We had had a great lunch out and need time to chill before catching up with friends and family in the Urban Tap House and this was a good choice. A very relaxing hotel, the room was great and had everything you needed. We also made use of the spa and pool and then headed off into town.

After a great night out we had a wonderful sleep and great lie in (as kids were at home with the Grandparents and my brother and partner). It was 09:30 and time for breakfast and it was a very good breakfast and very good service.

I would recommend anyone to stay here and it was a very pleasurable stay and we would definitely stay again.
