+ 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 ☺️

lovely cardiff

After a less than satisfactory check in , our grievances were soon amended and this turned out to be a lovely stay. Most of the staff were courteous and happy to help. I would commend the management on the swift action taken regarding our grievance.

Ideal location

Well placed for visiting Cardiff, approx 10 mins walk to either the bay or city centre. Hotel very clean, room was comfortable & overlooked Bute Dock, little noisy from nearby traffic (but only because we had windows open). Breakfast was good, plenty of choice & replenished constantly. Staff all polite & friendly. There is a £6 charge for car park payable on check out, however you can park all day on departure day, should you choose to. Definitely recommend & use again

Its is basicaly fine...

The hotel is fine. The staff was really kind. Our room was clean and well equiped. The location was perfect: 5 min to the bay, 10 min to the City centre or/and the bus station. But: the breakfast was very boring: same meal (omlet, bacon, muffin, toast) on every morning.
