“Quality budget hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Easy to find hotel,just off A4232,located in Cardiff Bay.The Red Dragon Centre is on the same site it has a cinema,bowling alley,casino plus bar and several restaurants(Miller and Carter Steakhouse recommended),also very handy for the Millennium Centre.It's a 25 minute walk to the Motorpoint Arena,Millennium Stadium and St.Davis Shopping Centre,I would recommend the train from Cardiff Bay Station to Queens Street Station(£2.10 return,£1.50 single)
The hotel has a bar/restaurant reasonable priced.The bedrooms were spacious for this type of hotel, good sized TV,coffee making facilites, hairdryer and iron.The bathroom had a seperate toilet,shower was good.We found the room clean and tidy.
Good quality and plentiful breakfast.All staff we dealt with were polite and helpful from the reception to the restaurant.
The free parking was an extra bonus compared to some of the prices quoted by other hotels in Cardiff.We would happily stay her again.

Comfortable, clean, neat rooms in this budget hotel, good for anyone at meetings in Cardiff Bay or on holiday. Staff helpful and pleasant; food in the restaurant limited (wine very limited) and generally quite plain but unpretentious and perfectly good.
A bonus at this hotel is the free parking at the hotel (though it's often pretty full), making life much easier and cheaper than in many of Cardiff's city centre hotels.

This hotel is brilliantly situated for Cardiff Bay and the Milleneum Centre. We received a warm welcome on arrival and all the reception staff were great, helpful and friendly. The only thing that really let down the hotel was the restaurant service at breakfast. The staff were unhelpful and we were left with dirty plates and glasses on the table until we had to ask for them to be cleared. The restaurant in the evening was quiet and we had to hunt for a waitress but they offered a discount on our meal and apologised without us saying anything, so they turned unhappy diners into happy diners! Room was large and comfortable. Everything was clean and welcoming. We would happily stay again.

Room was big and clean.
Easy to reach the city centre and the bay from the hotel.
The breakfast was not included.
Parking is available.
There was nothing special about this hotel and it was a bit pricey.

Stayed at this hotel recently for 2 nights and went as a family of 4. We booked a twin room for 2-4 people and expected a basic room with a double bed and sofa bed, but we had a pleasant surprise when we arrived! The room was huge and we had 2 double beds, new flat screen tv, tea and coffee making facilities, lots of storage space and a nice bathroom with mist free mirrors! Everywhere in the hotel is really clean and all the staff are friendly and welcoming. The hotel is right near the red dragon centre which has a few different restaurants, a cinema and an arcade/bowling alley, also right near a pizza hut, a Mexican and a steak house do you're never lost for what to have to eat! Breakfast was great, something for everyone. It's about a 25 minute walk into the town centre, or a 5 minute drive. Would definitely recommend staying at this hotel if you want a centrally located, excellent value for money hotel and I hope to return in the future!

Stayed for one night as we were seeing a show at the Wales Millennium Centre and it was the closest hotel to the venue. First of all I was disappointed to find a cheaper rate online but I assumed that the amount I was paying was because breakfast was included. It wasn't. Figured that it was my fault for not shopping around enough and that the higher rate would be worth it for the quality of the room. It wasn't. The sheets didn't appear to have been cleaned and my sister kept finding hairs on her pillows which is not a great sign. The towels which we had to call down to reception for, were in an even worse state. Although the room was large and beds were comfortable, we had a restless night because of constantly banging doors down the corridor. All in all very disappointed and would not recoomend this hotel in .

Excellent value. We had a quiet room on top floor with views. Room was large and well equipped. Overall,it was a very restful stay. Pleased that check out wasn't until 12 pm. So, there was no rush to leave. It was easy to walk to Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. Parking was free. Staff were polite and helpful, but not very dynamic!
