A warning to anyone coming to this hotel and using their car park (which is advertised on line as 'free')

If you do not give your car registration details to the receptionist and you park for over 2 hours you will receive a nice letter in the post stating that you violated parking regulations and are being fined £65.00. This happened to me ! However, I have to admit that when I contacted the Hotel Manager he dealt with this immediately and contacted the car parking company and cancelled the fine. He was extremely efficient and a pleasure to deal with.

On that basis I cannot fault the service received. Shame however about the food which was served at the function I attended here. Dry pate, hard as nails brussel sprouts, sweaty cheese and coffee like treacle.

Stayed on 14th Dec stop over to see Mamma Mia, excellent location for millienuim centre and Cardiff Bay.
Have stayed at hotel before and found it a comfortable hotel to stay have always gone room only before, but booked this time bed and breakfast for a treat before setting off home. Which turned out to have been a big mistake.
You go away for a weekend to have a break from stress of your work and relax.
Breakfast here turned out a very stressful experiance, and something i dont want to happen again. Came down after lovely nights sleep for nice breakfast. on coming out lift walked to restuarant only to be told by other guests that the queue was back by lift. So after a 30 min wait in queue managed to bet a table and place was like a cattle market. Tried to get to coffee and juice and then thought have some cornflakes to start but realised that was in same queue and the cooked breakfast so gave that up as bad job and me and partner just continued in queue for some bacon and egg etc. this took good 20 min and standard not best ever had once got it. also by this time coffee cold so had another fight get anoyher cup. quite a few stressed people in there as well and which spoiled out lovely stay.
I will definately stay again but will always go for room only in future. As for rest of hotel is totally recommended. The restaurant staff were as helpful as they could but seems place to small to cope if everyoine goes bed and breakfast.

Reception isn’t bad, but the receptionist wasn’t very friendly or talkative on checking in.
Very spacious room (room 209) even has a sofa and an armchair. Modern room with nice desk and decor. Double bed, free internet TV (slow but it is like that everywhere). Flat screen monitor that doubles as a TV, a bit small but ok.
Reasonable lighting in room. Space to store two suitcases which is always good. There was no fridge or safe. Toilet does not have much flush power. Nice bathroom fittings, heated towel rail.
Free parking available at hotel.
Location very close to city. It was in a complex with restaurants, cinema, bowling alley, casino.

Considering the price that we paid for the hotel, we really weren't expecting much out of our two nights stay there a week back. However, we were pleasantly surprized. The hotel was clean and well-maintained. The rooms were that we stayed in was large and incredibly clean. The beds were comfortable and the large flat-screen TV was great! The room service was really good too. Carpark spaces were also plentiful.

Location wise, it is rather far away from Cardiff City center but relatively close to Cardiff Bay.

Noise generated from the roads was clearly heard however it did not interupted our sleep at all.
