Great value for Radisson

The rate I paid was amazingly low and breakfast was even included - a very nice buffet with more than the typical greasy hash browns, sausage, bacon. Room, as expected in a Radisson, was very comfortable and spacious, though there was scaffolding completely covering my window.

Nice stay in Cardiff

The location of this hotel is excellent and allows the visitor easy access to all Cardiff has to offer. However the hotel has few amenities outside of the rooms and an impersonal atmosphere. Staff took three hours (and only after reminding) to fix a problem w the room.

Great location.

We travelled to Cardiff by train and the hotel is just a five minute walk from the station. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the room clean and comfortable. The hotel is 21 stories tall and the rooms have large windows giving great views around the area. For a weekend break it is well situated, lots of bars, shops and restaurants just a short walk away. We went to a concert at the Motorpoint Arena which was, again, just a short walk away. Negatives? Well the bar and restaraunt were a little on the pricey side for my pocket but with so many good places to eat and drink on hand that wasn't a problem. The room only had two plug points, none bedside, which was a pain when charging phones, tablets etc. But that's it really, as a base to go to a concert or explore Cardiff, it's ideal, especially if arriving by train.

Very disappointing

Where do I start?? My fiance and I booked a room for Valentine's weekend. Before we had even got to the check in desk, a member of staff approached us and wanted to know our dining arrangements for the evening. Upon arriving in our room, we found that rather than the double room that I had paid for, we were given a twin room with 2 single beds pushed together, complete with single duvets and pillows that wouldn't even support a baby's head let alone an adult's. We had to put cushions underneath the pillows to get any sort of support and comfort. The bathroom had 4 areas with mould in, the faulty shower sprayed as much water out the back (soaking half the bathroom) as it did out the front, and the toilet bowl was so shallow that any gentlemen wishing to urinate whilst standing would be splashed. The air conditioning unit rattled all night, and that added to the discomfort of the centre part of the 2 single beds pushed together, the awful pillows and noise from the passing trains in the morning led to 2 very poor nights sleep. The most disgusting of all the issues however was in the bedroom. It can be put no other way than there were BOGIES wiped on the wall! Upon checkout, we were not asked if we had enjoyed our stay or if there were any problems. We didn't even get a goodbye or thanks for staying. We were simply checked out and the member of staff immediately returned her eyes to the computer in front of her, making us feel like our custom wasn't appreciated and attending to us was an inconvenience. I have stayed in many hotels, many of which were cheaper yet offered far better service and facilities.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Eating at the local Harvester is highly recommended. Helpful staff, delicious food and very reasonable prices.

Excellent Location, Service and Room

The location, especially for train travel, couldn't be beat. It was an easy walk. The location was also fantastic for shopping and not bad (even by American standards) for a walk to the castle. The staff was all very friendly. Go ahead and book the breakfast with your room. For the convenience and quality, you can't beat it. There are a lot of cold items on the buffet, and all hot foods (bacon, potatoes, eggs, porridge) are made fresh to order. Note: If you drink soda with your breakfasts, that isn't included and has a separate charge. But, there are lots of juices, milk and tea or hot chocolate included. The room was spacious and comfortable. We had just the standard double room. We didn't upgrade to the suite, but my husband and I had plenty of space. The bed, sheets and pillows all comfortable. Got great sleep. In addition to teas and coffees, we even had hot chocolate in the room. Nice treat after we'd been out in some cold, wet weather that day. The ONLY negative thing I'd say was that the food in the bar wasn't spectacular. The margherita pizza tasted like just a frozen cheese pizza. Might not have been, just tasted like it. But, we were too late to eat at the restaurant and too tired to walk elsewhere. It wasn't bad, just not really great. We did order room service the next night, and all that food was pretty good.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you go to Cardiff Castle, pay the extra $ for the premium tour. It is really the only way to see the refinished rooms. I think I'd have felt ripped off if I'd not paid that and only saw the grounds and the little bits open without that tour.
