Stayed in this hotel for one night whilst visiting Cardiff for the weekend and couldn't recommend the hotel enough. We stayed in room six which was a very good size and a very spacious bathroom and it also has it's own private veranda which was a lovely little touch to be able to sit out on and watch the world...

Wasn't entirely certain where the hotel was so followed my map app! On leaving the train station it is a 5 min walk only to the hotel. App took me one route but the easiest is to aim for the Millenium Centre and the hotel is directly opposite! Ideal if you are either going to the Centre or on business... More

Booked this last minute as the hotel seemed promising and was at a reasonable price. We were lucky enough to catch a member of staff before the end of her shift so checked in but didn't receive adequate information on check-out times or breakfast prices etc... The sink in our room was blocked and although the member of staff assured... More

My friend and I booked this hotel in a great rush and didn't even look properly at the hotel when booking. However we were pleasantly surprised! It is in a great location ; not far from either Cardiff Bay station and the Bay itself. The millennium centre is opposite and there are restaurants all along the Bay! We were greeted... More
