Future Inn Cardiff Bay
Ranked #7 of 74 Hotels in Cardiff
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 September 2012

Stayed for 2 nights at the Future Inn this weekend and we were impressed with the hotel. Location is ideal, only a short 5 minute walk to Cardiff Bay, the rooms were very clean and spacious. There is plenty of parking available. If I were to find a minor fault with the whole experience, then I would say the staff on the reception could be a little more welcoming. However, this did not detract from our stay.

I stayed for two nights at this hotel. I found it to be top quality - extremely clean, quiet even though pretty busy, and top quality. Very spacious rooms, great breakfasts with lots of choice including fresh fruit etc, very friendly staff and easy to get around and navigate. very convenient location although may be a bit tricky because of the roundabout and main roads. I felt safe, comfortable, and all conveniences in room were great including hand held shower (relatively rare these days). Free local calls from hotel phone system and free wifi internet! brilliant!

Room Tip: I was on level 4 and it was ideal - very quiet certainly despite the busy road.

Excellent location for a trip to Cardiff. Close to millennium centre and docks. Short walk to Dr Who experience.

Clean spacious rooms were good value in this modern hotel. Restraints both on site and close by.

I am staying here a lot at the moment for work. The rooms are OK, nothing special but they are clean and well furnished though the electrical fittings in my last few rooms have not worked properly (strange twist light switches on lamps which seem to break easily and are not repaired). Restaurant average and breakfast served from 6:30 can be a a bit greasy. Man problem is form the noise which is the same both front and back as the hotel is one a very busy intersection - my advice is to go as hight as you can to try and avoid it. Good parking and access to the cinema etc but its a stopover hotel not a stayer.

Room Tip: Noisy - get as high as you can (rear seems to be slightly quieter)

I was generally disappointed with my recent one night stay at this hotel. I was downgrading from my usual range of 4 star hotels because the Future Inn was about £20 cheaper at £73 B&B. Check-in was carried out in a robotic and unwelcoming fashion by one of three girls standing behind the desk. They continued chatting to each other whilst the process of checking-in got underway and didn't give me any information about the hotel and its services. My room and bathroom was spacious, clean and offered everything that I needed, but the quality of the bed and linen was disappointing, even for this type of hotel. In consequence to the inclement weather conditions during the evening, I decided not to venture out to any of the good restaurants in Cardiff Bay, and decided to give the hotel restaurant a try. Whilst the service was friendly enough and appropriate, the quality of the food was a major let-down. Both my starter and main was almost inedible. (Minestrone soup appeared to be tinned spaghetti in tomato sauce with some veg thrown in.) Although the self-service breakfast contained the usual fare, it was uninspired and lacking in quality. Thankfully,check-out was much friendlier and the free parking was very much appreciated. To conclude - my future when staying in Cardiff is not at this hotel and I will be looking elsewhere in the future.

We visit this hotel regularly when we attend performances at the nearby Wales Millennium Centre for which it is very convenient. We are always very disappointed if we cannot get a room there because they are already fully booked. This alone suggests that it is a much used and liked hotel. We must have visited this at least 30 times and the standards of the rooms and their cleanliness set a standard by which we judge other similar establishments. Also, the rooms are all of a good size so that you never feel cramped. The beds are amazingly comfortable! We'll be back soon ........... and by the way there's good parking at the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on 5th. or 6th. Floor are better if there is a function downstairs on the Ground Floor

We stayed for three nights with our two young children. The buffet breakfast was superb and the waiting staff were friendly and very efficient.
The room was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable.
Will definately stay again!!
