Beautifully situated for the shops, castle and for admiring the lovely range of Cardiff architecture. We forgot to request a bath when booking on the internet but the helpful girl at the reception desk promptly found a spare room for us. Her positive attitude was replicated by all the staff that we met during our stay. The room and bathroom... More

We stayed at the hotel purely for a business trip overnight. We didn't arrive to the hotel until late which was our decision however the bar closed at 11.50 which I think was quite early for a hotel bar. My room was very spacious with a large king bed. Shower facilities were modern and clean, however the rest of the... More

good location, nice room, fab service. will stay there whenever I'm travelling to Cardiff. although the surface of the building is in maintenance, still worth to stay there for a night. best hotel to stay in cardiff if you dont have a car.

I have stayed in Thistle hotels in the past, even the Cardiff one and been happy, however, when I stayed on the 24th May I may as well have booked into the Travel Lodge. People running down the corridors during the early hours, and our room facing one of the nightclubs which remained open until 6am. I am lucky if... More

Stayed overnight on a business trip and wondered what I'd been missing previously. It was right in the centre of Cardiff, close to everything and fabulously clean and luxurious for such a reasonably priced room. Breakfast was a self service buffet with a huge selection and everything freshly prepared. Would definitely recommend.

Me and 3 friends stayed here for a birthday weekend away. My friend is registered disabled and the hotel were incredibly accommodating by ensuring our rooms were near the lifts and reserved parking. They were quick to ensure our rooms were okay and very helpful in providing us advice on how to get to local attractions. The cooked breakfast was... More

Stayed here for a Saturday and Sunday night. This hotel hosts conferences and weddings and there were two wedding receptions on the Saturday we stayed. Although the wedding receptions didn't cause too much noise, the nightclub just across the road certainly did. The hotel supplies ear plugs in the room! And these just about did the job on the Saturday... More

Went as member of male voice choir for a short visit to Wales where we sang at a concert in Caerphilly. We also made a trip to a memorial service of remembrance of the mining disasters at Senghenydd, and the choir gave a rendition of "Be Still My Soul" by Sibelius. A very moving experience for us all. We also... More

From the moment we walked into the hotel we felt welcomed, the receptionist called Star was very helpful. Our room was excellent, we had such a good night's sleep, to be honest it's the first time we have slept in such a quiet hotel. The evening meal was superb as were the waiting staff. The Breakfast Buffet was excellent and... More

I stayed at this hotel after a Mark Jenkins party night on 15th May. The rooms were to a high standard and the breakfast especially was enjoyable and good value for money.Throughout my time at The Parc I found the staff extremely pleasant and polite. A member of the housekeeping team named Dean was particularly helpful for his knowledge of... More
