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.

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.

Just what I expected

Excellent rooms, great location and friendly staff. Breakfast was superb! Parking a tad expensive at £15 a night though.

Blu by name

Staff very stand-offish and not helpful we were there a week and no one spoke to us, only on arrival day and departure day. Room was too warm with no heat control. Was offered a twin room but did not get one. Would not recommend Raddison Blu.

Single night stay for the Cardiff Half-Marathon

The hotel is situated very close to Cardiff Central rail station and is also in close proximity to many of the city centre attractions. As expected, the rooms were very comfortable and clean. I was primarily in Cardiff to run the city half marathon so requested a late check-out in order to have a shower afterwards. This was given without hesitation and without charge. The staff were always polite and friendly throughout my stay. I didn't dine in the hotel restaurant so I can't comment on their food but I would expect it to be of a similar high standard.
