Great location, terrible room

The hotel is in a great location, which is what you are paying for. Downstairs looks nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was awful and in desperate need of refurbishment. I have stayed in nicer ‘contractor’ hotels. Room hadn’t been cleaned properly, had old opened beer bottles in cupboard. Breakfast was good

One of the bests

Relaxing, clean and quality setup with efficient and amicable staff. Only disappointment, there was no bar/fridge in the room. Also, Marriott didn’t give any rewards points for the stay. Overall, good stay and I would recommend others to use.

Great location

Pros: You know what you're getting with the Marriott chain - always reliable
Location: right by Cardiff Central station and the bar quarter with Cardiff Bay within walking distance. Always plenty to do in Cardiff
Great location and nice hotel - all the staff are really friendly and efficient. Marriott chain - you can always rely on it. Good value rate including Wifi and breakfast - which was splendid.

Pleasant but tired

Lovely stay, hotel a little tired but still comfortable. Good breakfast but no mushrooms, even had gluten free rolls. Hotel bar was open till 2pm but didn't have some ingredients for drinks i.e. Strawberries for a daiquiri or cucumber for Hendricks because the kitchen was locked. We paid for a deluxe room at £200 per night but it really was only worth half of that.
