We stayed here last night (April 2014) fabulous. Room was sparkling & had everything we wanted, but the view was specular. Over looking Cardiff Bay, by day beautiful & when the sun went down just as fabulous. A short walk to Cardiff Bay with every dining experience & bar catered for our stay was enhanced by the great weather, none... More

This is the second time my friend and I have stayed at this hotel on the edge of the revitalised Cardiff Bay but it won't be the last. Wonderful location, great food and lovely staff and service - what more could you want! There's even fluffy white bath robes and slippers and nice biscuits too We didn't use the spa... More

Nice hotel with a pay and display car park just opposite (£15 for 24hrs) tell reception you paid £15 and they'll give you a £5 drinks voucher for their bar! We stayed on the 6th floor! Great view! The room was big and spacious and big windows! A few stains on the carpet and a little worn furniture but ot... More

Stayed for one night, room only at £87 (double). Pros: Size of room; large, comfortable bed; free wifi in room for 30 minutes; spa and pool; plenty of parking - public car-park beside hotel's car park; check-out. Cons: Very poor check-in (after almost 6 hours on the road) offering little information about the hotel and nothing more than a robotic... More

We were attending an event at the motor point arena and had originally booked the Premier inn due to location. On the day we were travelling unto Cardiff I thought I would have a quick look at this hotel and was surprised to see it was only about £30 more than the Premier inn and had a lovely spa too....

We stayed for 2 nights in room 708. 7th flooor with 2 balconies. One overlooking Cardiff bay,the other Cardiff city. Stunning. Suite was roomy and light with lovely hospitality tray. Food good and staff couldn't do enough. Live music in bar was an added bonus. A few niggles which my husband sorted with a very obliging duty manager. I would... More

I'd like to start by saying how friendly and welcoming the staff are here. The communal reception area and atrium is most impressive, and I had a beautiful view from my room across the bay. The room itself, however, was somewhat disappointing: the size and dimensions were very good, but it just seemed very careworn. Obviously, there will be wear... More

Booked this hotel because of its 5 stars, however, in our opinion this is more like a 3 star hotel at best. We arrived to be told the hotel car park was full so had to pay and display in a car park next to it which cost £15 for 24 hours. We were told we had been upgraded to... More

We stayed here for one night whilst on our way to cardigan bay. We had stayed for a weekend previously, some ten years ago. After reading some reviews on Trip Advisor, we were expecting peeling paint and a dismal hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. Our room was on the first floor and well equipped with all essentials, spotlessly clean, plus... More
