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

Me and my friends stayed here overnight as it was convenient for the theatre directly across. The hotel is very conveniently situated in the Bay which saves travelling into town. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. Each of the rooms is individually designed. My room was a decent size with a good sized bathroom, however it would have been... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. This is an interesting little boutique hotel with super friendly staff. Nice little touches elevate it from the usual chain hotel experience. I stayed on the 3rd floor and thought the room was very comfortable. Tea, coffee, bottled water, shortbread and even a sweet bowl were all provided. I was rather taken with the nice... More
