“Amy in the bar”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We came in to the bar for one drink and due to the service from one of the bar staff, we found out her name was Amy, we decided to stay for several more. Amy made us feel welcome upon arrival, very helpful and sociable. We had come from the Park hotel which was pleasant but the Park Plaza came into their own and I would definitely put this down to Amy's service. We will definitely be coming back again. Katy and Sarah.

Stayed April 2013, traveled as a couple

Stayed again at Park Plaza and its still the best hotel in the city. The staff are all really friendly and helpful and unlike lots of other hotels you are treated as a human being and they want to ensure you enjoy your stay. The swimming pool is lovely although I didn't try the gym or spa they looked great.

The rooms are fanatic with really comfy beds and nice linen and a proper power shower and bath with lovely huge towels.

The restaurant has an amazing new menu the Thai fish cake starter and Jaffa cake tort pudding were my highlights.

Can't wait to go back.

Stayed here for a short tourist break with my son. It is centrally located and excellent value. The staff are friendly and knowledgable, the rooms are well equipped and spotlessly clean and I really can't fault it; it is very professionally run and exactly what you would expect.

I stayed here for a night whilst on business in Cardiff on the basis of a some very good online reviews. I was not disappointed and have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to others looking to stay in Cardiff.

The service in the hotel was of a high standard, as were the rooms. The latter are well appointed and large with everything you need. Wifi was also free of charge. Whilst I did not have dinner in the hotel, if the quality of the breakfast is mirrored in the dinner, then there should be no problem. Given the quality of the hotel, the cost for b&b for a city centre represented excellent value (booked through the hotel website)

The location is perfect for the centre of Cardiff and there is a car park opposite. It is NCP, so typically on the pricey side, but the hotel has arranged a 20% discount.

We stayed here recently because my wife was attending a conference at near-by Cardiff University. For this, the location couldn't have been better - but the center of Cardiff, the National Museum and all major attractions were equally accessible. The hotel has a minimalist design (which I favour - not for me the stuffiness often associated with UK hotels), a great bar and restaurant with excellent food, a solid-to-good breakfast, complimentary and rather fast wifi and an above-average-sized pool. On the 'down' side, our room (416) was very dark as it overlooked an interior courtyard and parking across the road cost £19 per day - somewhat steep, I thought. I would return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you avoid the small rooms overlooking the two interior courtyards.
