“Memorable stay”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We decided to stay here for a 'pre prom pamper' last year and we chose the right hotel we had such a lovely time! The hotel is in a great position in cardiff very central just off the main shopping high street, it is very modern and swish. The lobby is very impressive with its high ceiling and high doors and large fire place which fills the one wall. The restaurant serves gorgeous food, especially the steak! They have a lovely bar area with nice private high booths that serves both snacks and more substantial lunches. If you get chance to go in the spa during your stay be sure to get the full body massage and have a dip in the pool it was incredible such a lovely relaxing pampering time.

This was our third time staying at the Park Plaza, yet again a fantastic experience. We were celebrating our daughter's birthday and we had booked a junior suite. The hotel lobby is really impressive upon arrival and staff as always happy and welcoming. Room was amazing. We were facing away from the busy street of bars etc and we had a fantastic corner room with two huge windows. The room was huge! ample room for a family of four. Children had a bed each (already made up, unlike some other hotels). Our bed was also absolutely huge and very comfortable. Room was more than adequately stocked for four people. Plenty of biscuits, tea coffee etc and toiletries in the bathroom a plenty. Room standard was impeccable. Spotlessly clean and fresh a/c at the right temperature. We even had a robes and slippers. Lovely touch in the room upon arrival was a welcome tray with a half bottle of white wine and two bottles of water for the children as well as some lovely chocolates and a lovely touch of a birthday card for the birthday girl. Park plaza go above and beyond for the customers this is fabulous hotel that I will return to again and again. Cant fault it. Da iawn Park Plaza Cardiff.

Room Tip: Room 212, is fantastic

This was my first visit to Cardiff and the hotel seemed really well located and extremely central. A modern, with boutique feel to the hotel, very welcoming. Rooms well appointed and have everything you would expect. The public areas are really nice, a great bar with excellent atmosphere. The restaurant was also very good, we were part of a small group, the service was great, swift and food wonderful. Was very tempted by the desserts which had to be tried and was well worth it.

We booked this hotel directly and used the info from some of the previous reviews. It was a Friday night so we booked a room at the rear of the hotel as it is a pretty busy area to the front and pretty noisy. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of our room although we had paid for an executive room it was still a really good size.

Very helpful & professional staff on the front desk. We had dinner in the hotel and had to wait quite a while for our food but when it arrived it was pretty good.

Generally a very good hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the rear of the hotel especially on a weekend

We stayed here for a family wedding this weekend. The one stand out thing was the staff, all really friendly and very helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are expensive for reasonably standard 4 star rooms but our room was very big, we stayed in an executive room as it had room for a childs bed as well. The food at the reception was lovely. Would stay here again but only if we got a deal as it is a good £40 above other 4 Star hotels on a Saturday night. Most of which don't charge for an extra childs bed.

Room Tip: Ask for something facing the back over the park, less noisy
