Well - it sells itself as the premier hotel and spa in Wales and says it's 5 star. It is not. At all. Spa day was basically a good deal cost wise via Amazon local so had 67% off the price but if I had paid full price I would have been sorely disappointed. My massage and facial was good... More

Not as good as expected, but service and staff attention to detail were very good, only let down was room not as clean as expected, few too many OPH (other peoples hair!!!). Spa area good but missing a plunge pool and steam room. Breakfast very good. Also thanks for the chocolates

This hotel is amazing, from its insane architecture to the service and restaurant. Rooms have great views, either on the city or the sea (or both!). The location is very convenient especially if you have a car. Rooms are high standard. Restaurant is great, atmosphere is very cosy and refined. Would recommend it to anyone going to Cardiff and looking... More

Short stay at this hotel was on the whole most enjoyable. However for a 5 star rated hotel we thought that £15 per night for car parking, no change in menu in their restaurant over the nights we used that facility, extra charges on items for breakfasts and evening meals were a little unexpected. One night somehow I got a... More

Had one night here for a treat and really enjoyed it. This hotel is not cheap but then it is a 5 star. The staff and service are excellent. The food in Tempus restaurant was delicious (we had lunch). The views from the rooms and the decking area outside the restaurant/bar were stunning. Rooms nice but a couple of small... More

We booked this hotel on an offer so it was great value. Staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival and throughout our stay. The rooms are spacious and lots of 'extras' you can order tea in a pot to the room, freshly ground coffee- all arrived quickly. Robes and slippers are also provided. The highlight has to be the...

Stayed here for one night in transit between England and East Wales. Is a nice hotel with good views from the balcony of your room. Also in a good location (walking distance to a lot of shops and cafe's along the waterside). The swimming pool and spa facilities are also lovely. Only downside is that they advertise as having parking... More

Just come back from a weekend away at this hotel with my boyfriend and was sorely disappointed with this hotel. I have been here before and was impressed with the place, but now approximately 10 or so yrs later, and the whole place is tired and in need of refurbishment. It in no way feels like you are staying at... More
