Cannot fault the hotel staff who are friendly, helpful and courteous. Everything in our 4th floor room was clean and well kept. Unfortunately, the noise of trains and service announcements from the station kept waking us throughout the night. I was concerned this would happen before I booked, but the reviews I read didn’t complain of noise and I assumed... More

The hotel is very nice and very secure. Really close to bars, clubs and restaurants which makes it very easy when you want to head back to the hotel at the end of the night. Service was very good. Breakfast is very expensive so we didn't opt for it but with all the restaurants around it's really not a big... More

Had a lovely stay in July while attending the speedway GP. Room was on the 8 floor with brilliant view the railway was very close but not a problem! Breakfast was good lots of choice hot or cold. My only gripe is the hike in prices when there is am event on from £180 to £320 for two nights!!

We stayed in this hotel for long weekend 9/10/11 July- it is located near the train station in Cardiff, opposite the hotel are lots of cocktail bars, cafes and plenty of shops We were on the 9th floor, fabulous views, good size room, comfy bed and spotlessly clean. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cardiff.

Room was clean and staff were very helpful when a plumbing problem necessitated a change of room. Buffet breakfast was very good, and restaurant food was excellent. Great location in walking distance from train station as well as walking distance to airport bus.

I have stayed here several times over the last few months and can't fault it. The staff are lovely, so helpfull and pleasant and nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant is good although they don't change the menu very often so staying there so often does mean that you run out of options after a while. In saying that... More
