This is a clean and smart hotel in Cardiff Bay.
The staff are polite and helpful, especially the waiters at breakfast. The buffet breakfast was of a high standard, and had lots of choice.
I enjoyed the pool and the towels are complimentary.
There is a small but pleasant children's area with some books and an X-box. My son (6) enjoyed this.
The bar is nice and spacious, although I thought that the food was overpriced.
A real let-down is the extreme thin-ness of the bedroom walls. We heard people snoring, drunk people coming home at 2am, and babies and kids crying. We got very little sleep. If the walls had been well-made, this would not have been an issue.
The room itself is small but nice, and my son slept well on the sofa bed. The bathroom is clean and adequate.
This is Cardiff centre, but it feels very isolated. I think it must be in the business district, so there aren't any interesting shops or cafes nearby that you can walk to. They aren't too far by car though.
