“THE place to stay in Cardiff, Wales”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Enormous value, centre of the city, OUTSTANDING staff ~ well worth a visit! VIsiting from LA, we met up with my 85 year old Dad who travelled from Pembrokeshire to join us: the hotel loaned us a wheelchair for him for the duration of the stay (6 days) at no charge ~ amazing. And such a huge help. Staff fall over themselves to make your stay the best it can be!

A good full service hotel with good clean rooms and pleasant service but avoid the bar it's not relaxing it's a public hen party venue. Spoils the whole stay repeat do not use the hotel bar it's like a nightclub and this impacts on any enjoyment in the restaurant next door. If the hotel bar did not have public street access it would be wonderful

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Our Laguna Kitchen and Bar is indeed a very popular venue both for our residents and locals. Weekends are busy with people enjoying themselves and having parties, during the summer months we have live music on a Friday evening and all year round we have our in-house DJ playing music until after midnight on both Friday and Saturday night. Please accept our apologies if you felt our bar was not in keeping with our hotel. Thank you for your kind comments regarding our service and other facilities.

Absolutely superb hotel right in the centre of town walking distance to the museum and shopping town centre.
Local restaurants are easily accessible
Room was very nice and staff very helpful throughout the Hotel.
My 2 boys loved the fact they could make their own pancakes in the morning.

Modern well seized rooms in city centre location with great restaurant and leisure facilities( pool and gym). Walking distance to shopping area and Cardiff Castle. Parking opposite the hotel at extra charge. Restaurant offers good quality at reasonable prices. Don't miss breakfast.

Stayed here for just one night with the wife and another couple for our first visit to Cardiff. Very impressed with this Hotel.....when booking, we asked for two rooms next to each other which was arranged. The reception staff were very friendly, helpful and polite. Amy gave the females a guided tour of the Hotel which was very much appreciated...she was very professional, knowledgeable and a credit to the hotel. The rooms were clean, modern and tastefully furnished. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well (no road noise heard at all due to the triple glazed windows). The nearest parking is opposite the hotel but it is a NCP car park which means that they are very expensive.....worked out at about £15 for 24 hours after applying the hotel's 20% discount. Cannot comment on the restaurant, room service or breakfast as we ate out. The swimming pool, steam room and Jacuzzi was a bonus and we all enjoyed using these facilities at no extra cost. Highly recommended centrally located hotel and wouldn't look at staying anywhere else when we return to Cardiff.
