Spent a very enjoyable night at the hotel. Check-in staff were fast, efficient and friendly and the room was modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bathroom, bed and amenities were all first rate. Breakfast next morning was well-organised, plentiful and tasty. The hotel is ideally located for the city centre and is walking distance from Cardiff Bay with a good-sized... More

Last night I slept well in this cute hotel near Cardiff Center. It's quiet and great for kids. They offer extra pull out beds, toys, pool and good sized rooms. It's clean and the service is excellent. People are nice. One drawback is that the bathroom does not have lockable solid doors. The doors are frosted windows.

About 10-15 minute walk to town but all well lit. Not the 'nicest' of areas location but only in terms of picturesque-ness! Many many shops and restaurants as well as museums and attractions. Lovely pool and small jacuzzi etc nice when its quiet. Didn't use restaurant but looked appealing! Comfy beds and simple rooms.

This location is good to get to by car, then a bit of a walk into the centre. It's nice to get out of all the noise and business when you go back to hotel. Then just over the road (opposite carpark entrance) you can go and stroll around the water. Parking was £8.00, they also allowed us to park... More
