Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights. The entrance and Hall ways were spotless and clean. The studio was very clean and well equipped with towels, soap, hair dryer, ironing board/iron, complimentary showergel/shampoo/conditioner and tea/coffee. The studio was decorated very modernly and homely. TV and dvd player worked fine. I did not find the bed comfy, however my... More

Can't really comment on the accommodation except that it is in an excellent location. We booked this apartment about 2 months ago and then 3 days before our arrival had a phone call to say that it had been double booked? They offered us another apartment at another location. We had booked the apartment because of its location as we... More

Hello Meinir, Thank you for your review. Sorry to learn that being allocated an apartment within Quayside as opposed to Century Wharf left you feeling so disappointed. We understand that this can be frustrating & can only apologise, not that its much of a consolation but we really don't like to have to disappoint our guests. We had guests who... More

The location of this apartment was ideal for the Millennium Centre/Mermaid Quay: one minute's walk. The equipment/furnishings were fine, other than the absence of bedside tables/ light. The only problem was checking-in. We had to arrange to meet someone (Stephen) at a specific time and we got lost, thanks to satnav. (Tip: enter "Millennium Centre in the satnav and not... More

Hello Trevor, Thank you for your review. Great to hear that you found Stephen so helpful & we have ensured that he is aware of your kind words. Sorry to learn that you found giving a time of arrival a little restrictive, especially if you got lost en-route. Cardiff can be a little tricky if you don't know your way... More

Great apartment size & location - poor maintenance makes a 'Gold' apartment over-priced - and don't bother complaining! I booked a 1 Bed Gold apartment in June as a treat for my birthday whilst recovering from a knee operation. I was on crutches and therefore a central location was idea (it is a fantastic location), and the idea of the... More

Stayed in a SERVICED APARTMENT for 3 nights. Brilliant location in Cardiff Bay right opposite the Millennium Centre, where there are concerts etc. Well appointed 2 bed, 2 bath apartment on 5th floor with supermarket underneath and another round the corner plus loads of restaurants within a 3 minute walk. I had booked a one bedroom luxury apartment but on... More

Our apartment was perfect for the weekend. Located in Cardiff Bay there are lots of restaurants nearby and only a 20 minute walk or 10 minute bus trip (£1.50 each!) into town. Car park local to the apartment, a 2 minute walk and just £6 for 24hrs. Highly recommend this apartment. Was ideal for what we wanted, perfectly maintained and... More

We arrived quite late (be aware that there is a late charge) but a lady was waiting for us and showed us where the best multistory car park was nearby. Also - we had put the incorrect arrival time on our booking and she called me to confirm which I thought was really helpful as we had booked it wrong.... More

After some initial confusion over arrival time & parking (recommended car park is the Pier head multi storey, this wasn't mentioned in our booking paperwork), Steven appeared quickly to show us round our apartment, explain how everything worked & gave us vouchers to reduce the cost of parking to £6 per day. Spacious apartment (ours had two bedrooms (one with... More

Hello Jani, Thanks for your review and comments. As you have indicated we do recommend the APOCA run Pierhead street car park as it's only a few minutes walk away from the apartments. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your apartment and hope that you enjoyed Cardiff just as much. More
