                  Bar and breakfast were good

                  Location was awful and noise from the road was loud

                  nice hotel, nice staff. Really good pool.

                  The location is not that great, though very close to city centre, it's not a great area to walk in at night

                  5.8

                  over priced a lot of attention paid to the reception and dining areas, rooms were poor value for money

                • Single
                  9.2

                  Polite staff, large room, good facilities, great building.

                  Rubbish food, evening meal and breakfast of a poor standard and vastly overpriced - should have gone to KFC!

                • Single
                  7.8

                  Well located for Cardiff International Arena, hotel was tidy, staff helpful and relaxed eating arrangements

                • Group of friends
                  9.6

                  Value. Quality. Easy to get to - Short walk from the city centre but just off a main road.

                • Couple
                  7.4

                  I enjoyed the location the decor and the relaxed atmosphere

                  I was very disappointed with the evening meal I had

                • Couple
                  9.2

                  Staff were very helpful - we had trouble sleeping the first night as there was a lot of noise on the side of the hotel we were sleeping ( kitchen, pool ducting etc) - and we were moved for the next night. We thought breackfast until 12 was a brilliant idea and enjoyed an extra hour lie in with uot the kids!!

                  The noise from pipe work outside - the first room was really comfy but the night time sounds from all the machinery was so loud - not only did we not sleep but we had headaches too. However your staff were very helpful the following day - although I would recommend this hotel I would tell them to ask for the quiet side!!!

                • Group of friends
                  6.2

                  slightly frosty welcome from the chap on the desk. Functional and no smile.

                  Location is kind of central but not quite. I would not have felt safe walking down the road at night, it feels quite detached and isolated.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  We particularly approved of the sensitive conversion of the warehouse into the hotel.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  The design of the hotel, the furniture and layout was excellent and a cross between futuristic and retro.

                  Charged for car parking on departure. Was not expecting that. It may have been in the small print which I did not read.
