Went on a 2-day bargain break, and that's what we got. The hotel is literally across the road from the Cardiff Arms Park whilst on the other side is Cardiff Castle. The receptionist was excellent, saying our room was just about ready even though we were an hour early. When asked if it had a view of the castle she replied "No, but just a second - yes you can have one, and it's ready" Room was on first floor and had splendid view looking over the castle walls towards the river. Decor was good and bathroom had all the necessary goodies, including cleanliness.
Breakfast was nicely laid out and the staff efficient in allocating/ tidying tables. We even had afternoon tea thrown into our package and that was also held in the dining room but the service/tables were just that little bit more upmarket.
There is a small hotel car-park at the rear but you have to walk along the side of the hotel (20 yards) to get into the hotel. Once parked, and you just want to see Cardiff centre, then walking is so easy, level and interesting, with many covered arcades and cafes. Would thoroughly recommend this if you get the right discounts.
