Stayed in the Maldron Hotel Cardiff hotel on new years eve, so that neither my husband or myself would have to drive to a friend's party.
Reception - the experience of checking in and out was friendly and efficient.
Room - Everything was fine, but not perfect. The room was comfortable, but starting to look shabby (eg wall light over bed were wonky). I didn't like that the desk light was on the same circuit as the entrance light, so both were either on or off (lighting is important to me). Appreciated having a kettle and tray with usual tea and coffee stuff, but found its location in the open wardrobe strange. I would have moved the tray but the kettle was plugged in, so assumed it was meant to stay where it was.
The bathroom was clean and nicely decorated. I don't like the bottles of shower creme on the wall arrangement - just something really cheap about it ( i always imagine the cleaning staff filling them up from a big bottle of generic liquid soap).
There was an ice machine in the corridor - I liked this, but had no occasion to use it - its presence made me smile.
Breakfast - nice dining room. Breakfast was a standard hotel buffet affair - what can you say. The scrambled eggs however did look very unappetizing (hard lumps of eggs with a watery base) - I just made up my own bacon rolls.
Overall the Maldron Hotel Cardiff did its job. Its not hotel to make you feel special, but you get a clean pleasant bed for the night, a hot shower and an adequate breakfast .
