Very goodbased on 492 reviews
  • 6.6
    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.

  • 6.6
    Nice

    Situation of hotel was good room was comfortable and had good shower and tea/coffee making facilities

    cost of wi-fi too expensive most hotels are free cooked part of breakfast rather boring scrambled eggs,sausages and baked beans every day

  • 8.8
    Great

    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.

    Very good

    Good location - if you have a car. Quiet. Friendly and helpful staff

    Bit of a cheek to charge £5 per day for parking - you would not stay there if you had no car as the hotel is rather more than comfortable walking distance to City sites and attractions, although Cardiff Bay nearer and accessible on foot depending on one's capabilities. More honest perhaps to make room rates inclusive of parking, and deduct/refund £5 per day if guest has no car.

    Perfect

    Staff were fantastic. So friendly and welcoming. The rooms were really spacious and amazingly comfortable. Had the best night sleep in ages! The hotel itself was in a lovely quiet location with fab view of the river. Also, breakfast was part of the booking which was well worth the money.

    Very good

    i liked it was so close to the bay

    The elevator was broke we where on the top floor, the tv was batterd n the remote had celotape wrapped around it to hold batteries in, the shower was a mixture of scorching hot or freezing cold and it would just change randomly between the two regardless of what temperature you set it to

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    Pleasant friendly staff who could not do enough to help us Excellent breakfast

    Only takeaway meals available at night or the pub next door where the meals were of very poor quality, the tables dirty and the staff rude and uninterested

  • 9.2

    Location and friendliness of desk staff

    Upon arriving in our room we were greeted by a foul smell with was due to bathroom not being cleaned and faeces and urine left in toilet

  • 7.8
    Very good

    The Reception staff were brilliant, friendly and knowledgeable. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Overall, it exceeded my expectations and I would stay here again.

    Breakfast was served until 9.30am but when we arrived at 9am we were told the hot food had all gone and they wouldn't be cooking anymore except baked beans. Toast, cereals and croissants were all good but hot food should have been available for the length of the breakfast serving time.

  • 8.2
    Great

    Staff very helpful all went out of their ways to help us and gave us good information.

    bread rolls at breakfast still undercooked doughy,lack of paper napkins.
