    I enjoyed everything here, it was impressive. Lots of supplies in the room: blackout curtains and power sockets. The beach was excellent. Again, it was near spillers & bakers.

    Comfortable base for exploring Cardiff. We really loved reception, it was tidy. Friendly staff accommodated all the needs.

    Nice

    Was in a good location for the Bay and Millenium Centre (main reason for booking here). Also close to city centre.

    The breakfast room wasn't really big enough for size of hotel. Breakfast was a bit of a shambles with no clean plates/cutlery etc and nobody clearing tables.

    We had a really good overnight stay. Loved the waterfront location, with easy birdwatching. Could walk to the pub for evening meal. Nice to have a lounge/bar in the hotel. Excellent breakfast. Exceptionably helpful staff.

    if we were to be really picky, an automatic door at the entrance would be good, for easier access with suitcases.
