“Quiet, comfortable and convienient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

The Future Inn, Cardiff Bay is situated on the 'wrong' side of Cardiff Bay, behind the Red Dragon Centre and overlooking the docks and the relief road, so no lovely sea views and quite difficult to find. However, it is only a four minute walk to the Millenium Centre and all the bars and restaurants of the Bay and is, despite overlooking a fast main road, extremely quiet.
The reception is bright and welcoming and the staff pleasant and efficient. All the rooms are a good size, most either with a queen bed and sofa plus arm chair or with two queen-sized beds. The bathroom is a reasonable size and has a shower over the bath, which gives a choice for bath-lovers. The bed was fine, though the pillows were a bit hard.

There is nothing extra special about the Future Inn (no spa, pool, club etc), it's quite faceless really, but it has everything you could want for a stay in that part of Cardiff - the staff are all friendly and helpful; the rooms are clean, spacious and quiet; there is free parking and it is convienient. On this occasion we decided not to eat in the hotel, not having enjoyed it much on a previous visit, so we strolled down to the Bay for breakfast instead.

Stayed here with a group of people attending a function in the Bay.
Very pleasant professional efficient reception staff - in fact all the staff were friendly and efficient.

Rooms large with very comfortable beds and pillows.

Not a pretty hotel but well positioned for the bay inc the Millennium Centre, with the city centre accessible by park and ride or taxi.

Good value. Will stay here again.

stayed for a night for a rugby wkend - great location and nice breakfast. Upgraded to a suite which was comfortable and clean. Was very costly though - I think the rates were tripled for an events wkend.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Future Inns Cardiff and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.
I note your comment about rates, demand for rooms in Cardiff on a rugby weekend is always high and at Future Inns we always try to be realistic and fair and are certainly always below the prices the competitive set charge, in addition we offer the opportunity with advance purchase rates for people to be able to secure substantial discounts by booking in advance.
I look forward to welcoming you back to Future Inns Cardiff.

We stayed at this hotel from 17-19 February 2012 as agroup of 25 on a hen weekend, the staff were extremely helpful and ordered taxis atc for us with pure professionalism and always had a smile. The breakfast was very good and the food was well cooked and hot which is great after a night out!

The rooms are big and very well equipped with everything you need and they were very accommodating with requests for extra pillows and towels etc.

The location is good but it is a taxi ride into the city centre and this varied between £5.80 and £10.00 depending on where in the city you wanted.

I would definately visit this hotel again.

Great value for money. Had two double beds in our room and only booked a double room. Very clean with modern decor.

Next to a leisure park near the bay front in Cardiff, it has a great location. Free car park, but there was a slight noise from the traffic outside. Breakfast and evening meals were to a good standard. Staff excellent and sorted a minor problem quickly. Only down side was that the Wi Fi was not throughout and the cable access in the room was terminally slow (according to my teenagers).
Would definitely stay again.
