Good Location. Nice walks. Check in was bit of an issue as we book two rooms with Single beds! Hotel said that we didn’t. Showed him my booking and he said that not what is showing on the system and this is why you need to book direct, I honestly don’t know who is at fault Ebookers or the Hotel. Decided to eat at the hotel I waited 45 Minutes for my food, very slow. Overall the Hotel was ok.

+ Clean Room + Cardiff Bay is 10 minutes to walk +, some employees were friendly + Breakfast is included - Double Bed is too small for 2 Adults - Breakfast needs variety. Notes for IHG Management; your Customers can not eat the same Breakfast every day. Thank you

Excellent staff who go above and beyond

Hotel perfect for our requirements. Staff were amazing and helpful from our arrival, from entertaining the 8 year old looking for Pokemon to providing a cot bed on request. Hotel comfortable and clean. Did not eat in except for breakfast which suited our needs. Staff then went above and beyond as the 8 year old had left his teddy who they were happy to look after and send back to him with a lovely note attached. Would definitely use this hotel again ☺️
