We stayed here as we were meeting friends (they were staying in a different hotel). We usually choose Prem Inns but this hotel was closure to where our friends were staying. This is the first time that we have used a Future Inn and it will definitely not be the last. The staff were first rate answering all our questions and telling us the quickest (walking) route to our friends hotel. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was ok and had a good selection of foods. I think it might have been better but as there was only a minimum number of guests at this time of year(1st weekend after the new year) I don't blame them for not wanting to put out too much food and avoid costly wastage. The free car parking in this area was a real bonus. We liked it so much that wee intend to come back to this hotel in July to celebrate my friends birthday, when hopefully the weather will be kinder!!

Room Tip: We chose a quiet room - and it certainly was.

We stayed at The Future Inn as we were meeting family in Cardiff. Check in was very quick. Our room was of a very good size with a comfortable bed, good size TV, nice bathroom and an iron and ironing board. The room was very clean.
The hotel is in a good location in Cardiff bay and with a free car park.

We stayed here last decemberand gave a very poor review. We stayed again this december and were impressed by the improvement. The room was very clean, comfortable, lots of space. Comfy bed and soft pillows. No queue for breakfast and plenty of choice. We had no complaints at all.

Room Tip: Room 535 quiet area.

We stayed here for a couple of nights in between Christmas and New Year. The hotel room was large, very clean, two big queen sized beds, a big tele, lovely clean bathroom. Really enjoyed our stay, and the location was ideal with everything close at hand. Would certainly recommend, and we will stay here again.

Room Tip: The twin room with the two queen sized beds was lovely.

We stayed at the Future Inns on New Year's Eve as a base for a visit to Cardiff Bay. We arrived early at the hotel at 11am but were able to book in straightaway, which was a nice bonus. All of the Bay's attractions are within a few minutes walk of the hotel. The bar and restaurant are minimalist in style but perfectly satisfactory for a short stay. We had a large bedroom with two Queen size beds. Everywhere was clean and the staff provided good service.

Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Ok to be honest the reception and the bar are good, but the actual room we had was very poor main causes of complaint are as follows

1 - hole in the back of the bathroom door

2 - toothpaste stains/runs down the back of the door

3 - carpeting the corner of the rooms dirty

4 - grouting stained and mouldy

If we hadn't been using as just a crash bad for one night, we'd have moved.

Considering the future inn is more expensive than the near by travel lodge and premier inn, we were very disappointed
