Stayed in an executive room here and it was very nice. The place was well stocked and very clean. It is very close to the city centre. The staff were exceptionally friendly especially the girl that checked us in (I think her name was Nicole) and really helpful. Glad we stayed here and definitely would come back.

Lovely hotel. The room was beautiful and the service was really great as well. The restaurant food was kind of average but they had a function that light so they were quite busy. Breakfast was great, only a 15 minute walk from the centre of town but accessible from the City Sightseeing Bus. The pool and spa facilities were wonderful!... More

I use this hotel whenever I stay in Cardiff, both alone and when with family. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the leisure facilities excellent. Breakfast is plentiful and of very good quality and the hotel staff are pleasant and efficient.
