                Comfortable beds, good variety of food at breakfast

                Size of bathroom cramped shower curtain did not stop water from going on the floor, shower head needed replacing.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Close proximity to city, friendly staff, airy + modern reception

                Tired-looking corridors + furniture, overlooks football grounds so can be noisy

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                excellent check in, welshcakes in reception, promoting local delicacies

                hairdryer awkward to use, esp for a left hander

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                Good atmosphere in the hotel, friendly staff. Easy access to town and surrounding areas in Cardiff

                Car park, tight spaces and high fees for parking not shown on booking.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                Great location, great hotel, great food

                The lager in the bar was a bit pricey - £3.77 a pint!

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                The staff were very friendly and helpful, we were checked in very quickly and given details about where to go before and after the rugby. The hotel was very close to Millenium Stadium - we even had a view facing the ground. Although there were people in the bar we were on the 6th floor so heard no noise at all. I'd definitely stay again.

                We ordered room service for lunch and I think it was over priced. The burger was dry and steak baguette was lacking meat. The heating/cooling was automatically set to 25 degrees which could not be manually changed - could've been a bit cooler but we didn't have time to ask so maybe this could've been changed for us.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                atmosphere and staff were both excellent

                too expensive, i understand that it was a rugby weekend but £279 for 1 night is too much and I won't pay that again.

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                I like the service, breakfast, free drink (as priority club member), promotions spilled out rather than hidden, fleibility to cancel and rebook my room with pleasure (It was a big problem for Novotail London by Accor group & they charged me 130 pounds for nothing) These people are good and I will go again. They gave us the park view (Best view).

                Small room (hotel was fully booked so no chance to upgrade) The bed was just enough for one person as booked. I don't mind small rooms when service level and respect are high.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                It was central, clean, quiet (back room overlooking stadium) and the staff friendly. fast efficient lifts too.

                I had booked 2 junior doubles-the last two rooms, junior being the word! The beds were like large-ish singles..most uncomfortable squeezed up, especially as the heating was preset and we therefore cooked overnight. thats why I gave it a poor comfort rating.

              • Single
                7.0

                The central location of the hotel which was convenient for my appointments. Breakfast was very good.

                The rooms were rather too small and compact.

              • Group of friends
                9.2

                I liked the bar area &the desk staff were freindly&thebeds were nice

                Not really apart from some beggars sat outside on the seat

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                Good location for city centre attractions and shopping.

                I did not get any of my requests, which included being at the back of the hotel away from the road. When queried, I was told there were no requests provided. I saty at this hotel quite often, and this was the worst experience I have had there. I no longer find this hotel competitively priced, and the standards are falling.
