“Great flat and brilliant location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Spent the weekend there. Right in the heart of the bay, walk to all the attractions, bars, clubs and restaurants, millenium centre and Dr Who experience. 20 min walk to the city or a boat ride away. Lovely studio flat much better than a hotel and had everything. Whenever possible we stay in serviced appartments now as its so much better and more relaxing.

Room Tip: We stayed in studio flat 18 which was quiet.

We decided to book a studio at the quayside apartments as we had 2 consecutive nights out down the bay. We only live 10 miles away so we obviously didnt want to pay a great deal. The St David's was quoting us £350 for the 2 nights which I wasn't prepared to pay and as that was the only one I could think of within a stone throw away from the bars I wasn't going to look any further until I seen the studio on booking.com. It was everything we needed. We were on the doorstep of all bars/restaurants in the bay, clean, modern, fully equipped kitchen. It was perfect and will def book these again.

Such a good location and value for money. Having stayed in st davids and been thoroughly disappointed with the decor and cleanliness I was very pleased with how immaculate this apartment was! And so modern! Definitely staying again!

Our first time at Quayside but it will not be our last. We travel to Cardiff fairly frequently and found this accommodation suited our needs perfectly. Position wise it is excellent for the bay and no real hardship walking up to the city 15 mins. We had a studio which was spacious compared to most hotel rooms, well furnished,well equipped and very clean with a balcony overlooking a court yard garden. We experienced no noise at all neither external nor internal so along with the comfortable bed we slept extremely well.The a space in the city staff we encountered were friendly and efficient. Car parking is not available but available nearby.

This is the second time my partner and I have stayed in the bay with Space in the city. Clean spacious accommodation with everything you need for a break away. The theatre 2 mins walk away,great restaurants and bar's on the door step and the city centre a 10 min walk away.On both occasions we have had balconies even the studio apartment had one. We will definitely continue using them ,they are fantastic value for money.

I stayed at the studio apartments by the Quayside for the weekend. Quite conveniently located by the bay next to lots of restaurants and pubs / bars. Parking is like a stone throw away (2 min walk) . Directions to apartment and parking was pretty straightforward, if you have a late check in, you can conveniently pick your keys from a nearby restaurant. The apartment was comfortable, about the right kind of size The wifi has decent speeds, TV is mainly freeview but considering I had gone to explore that was not an issue for me. Although the brochure did mention the apartment had a dishwasher, there was none in the studio apartment i staid in. The apartment was clean and in v good condition with everything you need for a short stay and was pretty quiet as well (it helped that it was not road facing as well). Only thing is the iPod docking station did not really work and seemed over used with buttons missing. Other than that convenient for any short stay and for anyone sick of staying in hotels. I will definitely be going back here again.

Room Tip: If you can, get a room with balcony facing the bay

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here from a Friday to a Sunday and we really enjoyed our stay, it's situated in a perfect location right in the Cardiff bay area and across from the Wales millennium centre which was perfect for us, booking was made easy and we were provided with directions for easy parking, we were met on Friday by a lady who showed us to our room and couldn't av been more helpful, our room was immaculate and everything we needed was accommodated for, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend a space in the city apartments to anybody, 10/10
