    Good sized room. Only 2 km to Techniquest. We recommend the hotel and staff. The Customs Shed served dishes within 50 meters off the property.

  • 6.6
    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".

  • 9.2
    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.

    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...

    pool and gym didn't open early enough - would have been nice to have had a swim before breakfast.only x2 nespresso pods for coffee in room (and x2 decaffinated) - few moew pods would have been good.

    It was close to shopping center.Leisure facilities were excellent and the staff were very helpful at all times,breakfast very good.

    The tea and coffee served at the bar was not hot enough,only a small criticism.

    Perfect

    Our request for rooms to be on a particular floor and situated together as close as possible was granted. Executive rooms were large, airy and very clean and good value for money.

    The coffee machine is not great - much better to have a cafetiere and sachets of ground coffee.
