    Great

    Exceptional facilities and food, and even a private parking. Special note of thanks to bartender. Apart from that, cardiff market was 10 minutes' drive away. A great selection of restaurants to eat close by, like Viva Brazil that was only 15 minutes' walk away.

    Very good

    The facilities are good, the hotel is lively.

    He was a little retired. The mediocre restaurant. Spa hours without children were not respected.

    The employees were very kind. The food at the bar was good and the waiter, David, was very nice.

    The noise in the corridors.

    Nice

    Breakfast was okay! The staff is nice

    The hotel should be managed more professionally. A four-star accommodation in this price range must not present itself as a friendly and nice hostel. The building is exciting because it was originally used for industrial purposes, but urgently needs to be refreshed and "polished".

    Perfect

    From the hotel a lot can be explored on foot. Bigger destinations - by car. The parking lot is not free of charge but secured. Public parking is not recommended. Parking time limited and expensive. The staff is very friendly and helpful. At breakfast the used crockery is immediately cleared away. Tables cleaned after leaving and newly made. We have not used the pool or other facilities. Who travels with children will be in good hands here.

    Perfect

    We had a beautiful room with a roof terrasse and stunning views over Cardiff Bay. The indoor pool area was excellent as was the breakfast and the location within easy walking distance to the shops and nightlife. Very good value for money. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel.

    The staff had a tendency to disappear from the bar, so it took ages to order a drink...
