It was convenient for walking to Bay and City centre ......the staff were very pleasant and helpful ...
Was in a good location for the Bay and Millenium Centre (main reason for booking here). Also close to city centre.
The breakfast room wasn't really big enough for size of hotel. Breakfast was a bit of a shambles with no clean plates/cutlery etc and nobody clearing tables.
Situation of hotel was good room was comfortable and had good shower and tea/coffee making facilities
cost of wi-fi too expensive most hotels are free cooked part of breakfast rather boring scrambled eggs,sausages and baked beans every day
We had a really good overnight stay. Loved the waterfront location, with easy birdwatching. Could walk to the pub for evening meal. Nice to have a lounge/bar in the hotel. Excellent breakfast. Exceptionably helpful staff.
if we were to be really picky, an automatic door at the entrance would be good, for easier access with suitcases.
Good location - if you have a car. Quiet. Friendly and helpful staff
Bit of a cheek to charge £5 per day for parking - you would not stay there if you had no car as the hotel is rather more than comfortable walking distance to City sites and attractions, although Cardiff Bay nearer and accessible on foot depending on one's capabilities. More honest perhaps to make room rates inclusive of parking, and deduct/refund £5 per day if guest has no car.
Staff were fantastic. So friendly and welcoming. The rooms were really spacious and amazingly comfortable. Had the best night sleep in ages! The hotel itself was in a lovely quiet location with fab view of the river. Also, breakfast was part of the booking which was well worth the money.
Exceptionally friendly manageress (Scottish?). Nothing too much trouble and interested in all her guests with an amazing memory of each of us. Made us feel it was home from home.
great location everywhere within walking distance. Town centre 15min walk, Cardiff Bay same distance, hotel good, friendly staff, breakfast included, good value for money.
nothing not to like.
No bacon for breakfast
i liked it was so close to the bay
The elevator was broke we where on the top floor, the tv was batterd n the remote had celotape wrapped around it to hold batteries in, the shower was a mixture of scorching hot or freezing cold and it would just change randomly between the two regardless of what temperature you set it to
Everything fine! Nice welcome.
Limited breakfast choice
Would have preferred more choice for breakfast
The whole experience yet again. We have stayed at this hotel several times and would recommend it to others. Friendly staff, very clean and food/breakfast well cooked although self service.
Breakfast was good
Poor shower, shower curtain, no soap, no shower gel, remote control broken
