Great location and lovely staff

Overnight stay on a Friday evening as seeing show at motorpoint arena. Being a 4* hotel my expectations were high, initial room had a few problems but this was rectified immediately, I must say a big thank you to the girls on reception, Emily and Amelia you truly are an asset to the hotel. Also had a groupon deal for afternoon tea, this was okay, a better balance with sweet and savoury would have been good, far too much cake and not enough sandwiches, however, good value for money and again staff were great, sorry I don’t know their names, we had a table by the window which was a bonus. Breakfast, well I’ve had better and I’ve had worse, again staff were friendly and helpful, I must mention Dean who was particularly pleasant. Didn’t get much sleep there was no noise but the beds and pillows were so uncomfortable. On a positive note the hotel is in a great location and reasonably priced, the staff are amazing and I would recommend this hotel, after all how much time do you actually spend in your room especially when there is so much to do in Cardiff.

Fist time to visit here to share an afternoon tea with my husband before goibg on to an evening concert. I have to say the food was delicious and washed down with unlimited tea or coffee was a plus. We also enjoyed a Prosecco cocktail and the service was friendly and welcoming from the start. Would certainly go back for more !!

I held a work event here last week. The hotel as excellent and well located but best of all were the staff. Sue effortlessy made sure the event went smoothly, Cat on reception went out of her way to make sure I got the kind of room I wanted (thank you!) and everyone else was pleasant, open and very efficient. If I stay in Cardiff again I'll make sure I stay here. Thank you!

Excellent stay - very central.

Stayed here for one night whilst seeing a concert. Offered 20% discount on food and drink which was really welcomed. Lovely hotel room for 3. Double bed and single bed. Clean, warm and very comfortable bed. Good hotel bar and good food however restaurant is a little messy and unkempt. Needs a good tidy up and some staff who look like they want to be there. Another drawback is that the windows dont appear to open in the bedroom but has air con. It's very quiet because of that. Definitely would come back.

Excellent City Centre Location

Spent a night here whilst on business. Room very clean, lovely fresh bedding. Room was compact with 1 single and 1 double bed but had everything I needed.
Very tasty breakfast with a good selection.
Car parking was available at the train station less than 1 minute walk away. £12.50 for 24 hours. The pay and display machines are a nightmare to use so we bought a ticket in the train station. A much easier option.
I would recommend this hotel its within walking distance of loads of great pubs and restaurants and although beside the train station there was no noise. I will use again 👍
