I took my family to Quayside for four nights break. My ulterior motive was to check it out as a possible base for a project I may be involved in for several months in South Wales. The like of positives is almost endless. The two bedroom apartment was absolutely perfect. Very modern. Well kitted out. Had everything I could possibly need. Great located. Seriously, this was a great 'home away from home for short breaks or engagements. I cannot praise it enough and for many people this would I am sure be a five star experience. It almost was for me.
There is one and only one reason why i will not go back. Internet connection for me is mission critical. For my work and to a lesser extent (but still important) personal life I have to be in touch in a reliable, super fast manner. The Quayside internet connection is significantly below the standard that I would expect from the style of accommodation being provided.
If internet is of no interest to you and you are giving this accommodation serious consideration, I can recommend it wholeheartedly. The restaurant bars and attractions nearby are excellent and if you need it as a place to collapse after work, it is damn near faultless.
If no high quality internet connection is a deal breaker for you, give this one a miss. It is a fact of life that for many people, the connected world is a necessity and Quayside doesn't come close to cutting it.
