Perfect location for getting into Cardiff and the centre, nice and quiet location with lots of parking available. Wifi throughout the hotel and a good size bar and sitting area. Rooms are nice and again of s good size with basic fitting for a quick night or two stay.

The hotel was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast choice was a little limited but very good. There was a lovely view from the breakfast room looking out onto the river.

The room rate was £88 per night which was far too much for the basic dull outdated room I received . Fixture and fittings in the room were poor and the rooms need a refit. There was no hot water in the morning for a shower (even when turned up to 50) . The ejecting drink at the bar was... More

The check in was quick and the room was clean and had free wi-fi which is always a bonus. We had a very good night sleep but the only minor criticism is breakfast is limited and... More
