If you are looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle (but only a ride away from it), relaxed and friendly then this is the place to be. It is Clean and conveniently close to millennium center were something interesting is always happening.

Excellent location, right opposite the Millenium Centre and walking distance to the Cardiff Bay eateries, shops and Techniquest. A stylish apartment which was great except for a few minors; cupboards were unclean, towel rail was cold, balcony furniture also unclean. As we had sunny mornings during our stay, we were keen to have al fresco breakfast. Worked out well for... More

I booked 6 rooms for my business and all the communication was good. On our way to Cardiff, we got a call form the office asking us to pay the deposit of £250 per room which was fine. As this was £1500 we paid by credit card. This is where we were told there would be a 2.5% credit card... More

Overall very nice stay, near to shops and restaurants, good transport links, clean place, good customer service, only negative thing is that the rug in the room was too slippery, nearly fell over, please change them, they are dangerous. Will highly recommend this place.

My husband found this efficiency apartment through Booking.com. The picture that showed the apartment was exactly what we got. The bed was comfortable, though being larger people it would have been nice if it had been queen size. The facilities and amenities were very nice.

That said, then had to pay whacking great (£75) fee for arriving near midnight. Also no advice on storing luggage bar an extra £20 from 11 am to 1pm. Cardiff train station currently has no left...

I was in a party of four booked by a friend who will write a separate review re. costing etc. which may have been specially high because we had foolishly fixed to visit Cardiff on a day when there was a Rugby match.
