I popped in to the centre when I came for the rugby and it is so clean and friendly. The staff are really welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. So helpful to your needs. Well done.

People working at the Tourist Information Centre were really kind and helpful. You can take free maps of the city there. Also, they suggest buying a Cardiff Visitor card that gives you discounts at some cafes and places. Also, there's a good choice of souvenirs there.

We went round and round in circles following the signs but couldn't find you! Better luck in the Bay where we got the information we needed.

Not what I was expecting as it was in the Cardiff Bay but is there a tourist information centre in the city center. If there is its not located well within sight easily. Service and advice is ok, a little on the small side.

Obviously at the time of writing, we were visiting the information centre in the Millenium Centre. People there were very friendly and informative and loads of literature for the tourist.
