Lovely hotel. Nice room. Helpful staff, great facilities. What more can we ask.There's an NCP car park opposite, which is expensive - in line with Cardiff in general, although the Hotel has a discount arrangement with the car park, we parked elsewhere. Would love to stay here again, and probably will.

Dear ian m, Thank you so much for sharing such a positive review on TripAdvisor following your birthday break at Park Plaza Cardiff. Happy Birthday again and we are delighted to hear you have had a lovely stay and appreciated what we offered. Indeed, you rightly pointed out about the advantages of our hotel being centrally situated in Cardiff City Centre, and parking is specially on demand on the busy weekends for the whole city. Although we do not have our own car park, the NCP on Greyfriars Road is located directly opposite the hotel and at this NCP we are able to offer a 25% discount if guests validate their parking ticket at our hotel reception. Alternatively, our guests are welcome to use the alternative options like yourself or pre-book on the NCP website which provides promotions occasionally, however no further discounts can be obtained at the hotel. Once again, thank you for choosing to stay with us and please book directly on our hotel website to save 10% on all future stays. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Kamen Hughes Front Office Manager

The hotel is in a good location right in the city centre. We arrived and waited for five minutes in a short queue to reach the check in desk. Then it took 20 minutes for us to check in. We had booked directly with the hotel so it was frustrating having to wait so long watching the receptionist typing on their computer and no explanation was given. The room we had booked and paid for turned out not to be available and again that wasn’t really explained to us properly. The room we ended up with was reasonable. However there was an adjoining room next to ours separated by a locked door. That meant we could clearly hear a normal conversation in our room from our neighbours who luckily went to bed early! Overall we felt a bit let down by not getting the room type we paid for and after a long journey the long wait at reception very annoying.

Dear Traveller1001Uk, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and choosing to stay with us last month. Indeed you rightly pointed out the excellent location given our hotel is situated in the city centre within a short walking distance to Cardiff Castle, Queen Street and High Street / St. Mary Street where are full of energy and eateries, not to mention near all the shops that provides us a great variety for our shopping lists and Principality Stadium. We are however disappointed to learn about your Check-In experience back in May, when hotels in Wales could finally reopen to welcome the publics with some new hirings, to prepapre for the May bank holiday and school half term. On top of that, we have received many positive feedback on different review platforms regarding our friendly staff at the reception and restaurant, our clean spacious room, the dining and relaxing experience at our restaurant and health club. During May, we experienced some hiccups with our reservations system integration which was meant to optimize the overall performance in order to enhance our guests experience, however it did not turn out to what we expected. We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience that casued you, and that the room you were checked into did not meet your expectation after a long journey to the Welsh capital and the long wait for Check-In as mentioned. Thank you once again for your support to our hotel and posting a review on TripAdvisor to let us know of your experience. I would be grateful if you could contact me directly to provide more details of your previous stay so that I can ensure you of an utmost experience when you return to Cardiff next time, and I hope we would be given another opportunity to serve you better. I look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you back soon. Kind regards, Kamen Hughes Front Office Manager frontofficemanager@parkplazacardiff.com

I am currently staying at this hotel. It is a solo visit, I have some important business in Cardiff area and it was convenient. I have endured a very stressful, difficult period so I also wanted to de-stress and relax a little. I rang in advance to request an early check-in because I had to meet someone in Cardiff at 1.30pm. This was because I had to travel a long distance and i had an appointment at 1.30pm. When I arrived, check in was slow and my room was not ready. I did not in-fact get to my room until gone 1.30pm which meant I was late for my appointment and very stressed. From my arrival to the appointment was then very rushed and by the time I'd finished, picked up a few snacks etc from the local grocery store, I was then late for my pre-booked beauty treatment and use of the Laguna spa. The treatment and the spa is what has made the stay special so far. The massage was Just sublime. I felt relaxed and at ease afterwards. The pool was the perfect temperature and the jacuzzi not too chlorinated. Perfect. I returned to my room and unpacked my belongings for a 4 day stay and finally had an opportunity to relax in privacy and to look at the room service menu and other information. The room service menu was very varied and the delights sounded delicious so I rang to order some food..... i was told that i needed to come to reception to pay a "deposit" before I could order room service!!!!! (I only wanted a few snacks, not the entire menu!!) By this time it was almost 9.00pm. I had a long, tiring day and I was relaxing in my night wear. I did not have the energy or inclination to change and go to.reception. Is the purpose of room service to be convenient when you are tired or feeling lazy?! The receptionist was less than helpful so I gave up!! I then went to the fridge to get some snacks and water only to find the fridge jammed shut. I called reception and an engineer came to remove a lock that should not have been on it. All in all extremely disappointing service. Not what you would expect from a luxury hotel. I think that these issues will make me re-consider re-booking here in the future. My relaxing visit has turned into one I'd rather not have had to deal with. I would use the spa again though. .

Dear Bluemoons1, Thank you for taking the time to share your initial experience with us regarding your first day. We are very pleased to read that you had a relaxing time at Laguna Health & Spa out of your hectic schedule yesterday, however we regret to learn that you ran late for your appointment at 13:30pm, while our team did their very best to accommodate you an early Check-In at 13:28hrs, with special bedding arrangement at your request when we had a heavy departure on a Sunday morning with Check-In time at 15:00pm. Thank you for your positive feedback on our room service menu, and we are sorry again we were not able to provide the convenience at the time without an additional security deposit for the incidentals, and I will surely reflect your feedback for the flexibilities. We pride ourselves in striving for service excellence and accommodate our guests' requests at our best abilities, and we will always endeavour to meet guests requests. Unfortunately, we are disappointed to read that we did not quite meet your expectation at this time round. While you are in house for a few more days, please feel free to contact myself or our shift Duty Manager should you require any assistance, we would love to ensure you of an enjoyable time at any opportunity. Thank you once again for your feedback and we wish you a pleasant time in Cardiff. Kind regards, Kamen Hughes Front Office Manager

I can honestly say the main reason I would not even look at any other hotel apart from Park Plaza when I’m in Cardiff is Kamen who works on the front desk, she was amazing throughout my first stay, and again the main reason I booked another night the following day, went above and beyond to accommodate for me and my 2 brothers in one room, pleasant, cheerful, really deserves some serious praise!
