We have just returned from a weekend break at the Hilton Cardiff, we booked a junior suite such a disappointment, out dated and grubby furnishings, broken shower cubicle, had to phone reception to ask them to replenish the dirty fridge, got sick of waiting for housekeeping so dusted the room myself. The restaurant was more like a school dinning hall . We have stayed in a lot of the hotels in the city & this was most definitely the worse by miles. Would not stay there again, Evan if it was free.......

Stayed: June 2014, traveled as a couple

We stayed at the Hilton Cardiff in May 2014. We had a large room on the 4th floor. No matter what we did we could not get it to warm up. We had a thermostat on the wall but although we adjusted it, the heating did not appear to work. The hallway and public areas were quite warm

The noise from 2 am onward until around 4 am was horrendous, waking us up. It appeared to be drunks leaving night spots.

Apparently if you stay on the Castle side the noise does not penetrate.

Service was good, Executive lounge was excellent

Room Tip: Stay on Castle side of the building and check the heating in the room

Stayed here from 2/6/14 till 3/6/14 with my boyfriend as an end of exams/university and anniversary celebration and booked with lastminute.com. Arrived at the hotel at 1pm and found that our room was ready which was a nice surprise. Enjoyed a wonderful champagne & chocolate afternoon tea in the Razzi restaurant, staff were all really friendly and polite and there was a lovely ambience. The room itself was lovely, very big, very clean and very modern. The spa was small and a little tired looking but was good enough for what we wanted. We also very much enjoyed a half hour back massage and the treatment room was very calm and soothing. Breakfast in the morning in the Razzi restaurant was also wonderful, there were so many choices!

Overall we had a really lovely stay at the Hilton Cardiff, it really was quite special and we would have loved to have stayed for a couple more nights. All staff we encountered during our stay were all very friendly and helpful and contributed to making our visit so great. Would definitely recommend, especially as the location of the hotel is so central.

Hiltons seem to fall into two groups - the very nice and the horrid. This is one of the very nice ones. Handily situated near the town centre but relatively quiet. Rooms and a lovely art deco exterior. The room was large and well decorated, bar was pleasant, and the food in the restaurant was good. My only gripe was that glass of average white wine was £10.5 in the bar - a 500% mark up? The executive lounge was small but pleasant.

stayed here with my sister . The room was spacious clean and comfortable with a choice of pillows . We used the Spa facility which was pleasant although the swimming pool area was a little small and tired.
The bar had a great ambience with live music. Breakfast really good and varied. Good service.
