We used this hotel as a base for my partner and I and our six week old baby to visit Cardiff family and friends. The staff were very helpful and polite throughout. The rooms was spacious and well furnished albeit in a rather Spartan style. The bathroom was adequate but like the rest of the hotel is starting to show... More

Lovely hotel with breathtaking views of Cardiff bay, 4 minute walk from bars, restaurants. Just a few things that doesn't meet a 5* hotel for me- -£15 parking for 24hours. -Huge tear in the ceiling above pool. -mini fridge was warm. Be aware before booking, not all rooms have balconies, a king deluxe is the minimum I'd go for as... More

We did not stay in the hotel but spent a day at the spa. What a disappointment. Pool area is poorly maintained with ripped ceiling and dirty patches. Children swimming underwater in the narrow water spout pool even though they should not even be in there so not a chance to relax. Very crowded in the swimming pool. Faded plastic... More

Me and my Girlfriend came down to Cardiff for a random visit. We booked this hotel because it overlooks the water. When we got outside the hotel, my car broke down. The staff at the desk couldn't be more helpful. Gave me a number for a local garage. And to my surprise, they upgraded to the best room because they... More

Stayed 2 nights to experience the UK Powerboat racing event - this luxury hotel over looked Cardiff Bay, guest service was faultless- better than excellent, very friendly, they even managed to remove an oil stain from my wife's silk dress before dinner, took them 10 minutes!!

This was my absolute favourite hotel in Wales, have some fabulous memories of being here with my other half - hence he treated me to a weekend here back in April and we got engaged on the balcony as the sun was going down - beautiful!

We stayed here and got a great deal on the room which was large and spacious. The air conditioning did seen to struggle with the heat however.

The rooms are a good size and modern but the balcony was inaccessible and dirty. I have been here twice recently and on both occasions the restaurant wasn't coping and the bar was woefully understaffed and had that sticky floor and table feeling. The pool is a good size and in a nice environment but all in all it's not... More

Such a lovely location and plenty of activity on the water with the power boats racing. The lunch was delicious from starter through to dessert. However the service was sadly lacking - 30 minutes for dessert to arrive then to be asked if we wanted a spoon or fork to eat it with is not acceptable in a five star... More
