We were guests at a wedding at the hotel but managed to avoid any ancient mariners on the way. We went to Cardiff Bay afterwards instead - worth a visit if you need cobwebs or whatever blowing away. The organisation of the event was very good and catering was above average. Good disco too. The hotel rooms are fairly bland but well fitted out and spacious. We overlooked the town hall and a mini London, sorry Cardiff, eye. The free wireless internet connection was good on day 1 but had crashed for day 2; but then this is wireless networking all over. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The scrambled egg in particular was top notch. Take care with the mini-bar. In theory if you move any item in the fridge then it's registered on their computer and you will be charged for it. We'd brought a bottle of champers with us and moved most of the things in the fridge to get it to fit in. The "personal use" space only takes 2 half-bottles - completely pointless. Then we read the notice in small print on the inside of the fridge door. Aaargh! However, all's well that ends well. The receptionist was quite accommodating and we did not have to pay for moving the bottles around the fridge. Thank goodness for human beings. They are not all aliens in Cardiff despite Torchwood!
