We stayed here for a birthday week-end so that we could explore Cardiff. The hotel room was spacious, very clean and modern - beds and linen excellent - exactly what you need for a good week-end away. The staff were helpful but not "in your face" which made for a nice relaxing time. The location was great very near to the shops. The downside - yes the nightclubs across the road - entertaining watching people with very liitle clothing on shiver in winter! We did not notice the noise on the 2nd night- lots of fresh air, good food and several drinks we had no problem poping off to sleep in the very comfortable beds ! We did not make a visit to the spa but after reading all the good reviews we will definately have to visit again!

Room Tip: if you are a light sleeper avoid the rooms on the main road facing the nightclubs. We were on the 4t...

Good points
Centrally located
Friendly staff especially in restaurant
Good food
Comfy beds
Spacious bedooms
Lovely bathrooms
Good leisure club
Nicely decorated throughout

Poor points
Avoid ALL external bedrooms as they are very noisy from street/traffic noise
Police presence outside hotel and along street as it faces Wetherspoons and other bars
Laguna Bar was full of "questionable" women!!
Poor tea/coffee making facilities in rooms considering the standard of hotel.

Overall we did enjoy our stay but would probably try the Hilton at the top of the street next time.

From check in to check out all the hotel staff were very friendly while being very professional I had a complimentary upgrade which was very much appreciated and the room was lovely with the pillows being the best I have had in any hotel !. Breakfast was very good and both the ladies who looked after me were again very friendly and very warm to my 10 year old . The hotel was very upmarket but didn't feel at all stuffy and the lobby with the fires was a nice place to relax. I couldn't fault it and will be back.

This hotel even came up to my German Husbands' standards!!!! What more can I say!!!!
Spacious, clean comfortable, high quality bedrooms, very high standard in bathroom, nothing is too much trouble for this hotel. The staff were so well mannered, (shop assistance would learn a thing or two in this environment).
We used the Spa, had a relaxing massage, ate a lovely three course meal and breakfast had a wide range and was plentiful.
The whole ambience of this hotel is about relaxing and helpfulness.
Really easy to get into the main city.
We will definately be visiting this hotel again in the near future.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor which was a good location as the Spa was on the same floor. We were at t...

My first choice when travelling to Cardiff.
Pro's: Good food, well presented and with taste. Try the Welsh dishes on the menu! Breakfast buffet simple but with variety and to cater most taste. The hotel is downtown close to the main shopping and tourist attractions. Short walk takes u everywhere you may need to visit while having an afternoon off or late morning meeting.
Cons: The hotel has no private car park, i rented a car at the airport because business meetings where outside the city, it cost me 1/4 of a hotel night rate to use the public car park overnight.

The hotel has also good gym and a pub.

Room Tip: Do not take the rooms facing the inside they are smaller and walls between rooms thinner (or maybe m...

I stayed at the Park Plaza for a work's event.We had a presentation 5 course dinner, with champagne and canapes beforehand.Disco was usual hotel mix and match of music,which is fine.The room was gorgeous.Quite large and luxurious,with flat screen tv and a large fully equipped bathroom and shower.Complimentary robes,towels and toiletries as to be expected.We made an order for breakfast to be delivered direct to the room.The breakfast arrived on time and was sensational.Full English,croissants,toast,coffee and juice with quality napkins and silverware.I would recommend it and would not hesitate to return.

Room Tip: I didnt use the spa,however I couldn't say not applicable in the above rating.
