“Good quality accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Hotel is ideally located in Cardiff Bay - within walking distance to all of the restaurants and bars in the bay area. Rooms are spacious, clean and good value. Breakfast is excellent, although sausages are a little too herby!

Great hotel with nice rooms. Very comfy beds and good location. Was very clean. The only thing being negative was the extremely rude night staff member who was manning reception. He went on to call one of our group a "tart" for no apparent reason. Very random. Then woke up to police in corridor which raises concerns of a secure safe environment, but overall I would stay again without the one rude staff member.

My husband and two sons had a week in Pembrokeshire this summer and broke our journey from London by staying in Cardiff, to visit the Doctor Who Experience (which is excellent!).

I spent time scouring TripAdvisor for a hotel that was firstly located within walking distance of the DWE (which this is) and secondly wasn't a flea pit (which this most certainly isn't!).

We had a suite of two rooms, so we had a separate room for the children (aged 9 and 7) to sleep. We arrived at almost midnight on the first night, and they were instantly snuggled down in the sofa bed, which had been made up ahead of our arrival.

Both rooms were extremely clean, quiet and very spacious - and our room had an enormous, very comfortable bed.

Breakfast was great, with lots of choice and plenty of everything.

I could have happily stayed here longer and wouldn't hesitate to return next time I visit Cardiff.

Room Tip: Go for a suite if you have children!

A Smart, clean and well staffed hotel. But we did find the price of our room was more expensive than others in the area. Well situated for the lively Cardiff Bay scene. We would recommend the hotel as there will be better deals price wise if you book in advance and they have a rewards points scheme if you book direct with them. The Thomas restaurant is nicely presented and good quality food, reasonably priced.

The Future Inn hotel is located at a short walk to Cardiff Bay and about a 15 minutes walk to the centre of Cardiff . During the weekends there is a bus stop close by where you can take the bus into the city all day long for a small fee . Spatious rooms , an excellent breakfast , and a lot of eating out possibilities in the neighbourhood . Free parking at the hotel , free wifi , helpfull staff . I will visit this hotel again next time I will come to Cardiff !

Room Tip: Every room is good enough , don't bother to argue , just accept what the staff will give you .

Great location near Cardiff Bay can even walk and short distance into City Centre. Huge room with excellent facilities which would be ideal for families with plenty of parking. Mine was Rugby trip and all were well catered for with a good hearty breakfast in morning.

Room Tip: 5th floor very quiet

Had a great experience at this hotel in June 2013, lovely comfy bed very quiet and opposite a fantastic steak house, we did eat at the hotel too and it was really nice. Mind you got a bit of a shock a breakfast with the Womens' Institute also staying there it was so noisy ha ha! The staff were very accommodating though and made sure we didn't wait or be disturbed as best as possible. All in all a great place and we will be staying there again in 2014 for the Speedway GP.
