Start on a positive. Ajay at the front desk was just fabulous and very helpful. Another gent was with him in our 2nd night and he too was fabulous and very helpful too. Well done.
Loads of parking that is easily accessible from the hotel.
The hotel is a little “tired” or perhaps it’s just run of the mill mass hotel. Our safe wasn’t working but Ajay came up quickly and replaced the batteries.
The WiFi was not very reliable and the signal not that strong and we were only on the 2nd floor. The room was clean but also a bit tired. A slight subtle urinal smell in the loo area.
The breakfast was a mass produced buffet, edible but not very enticing. It was also laid out all over as the space is limited.
The area and centre nearby to walk through to get to the Bay are a little run down, possibly impact of the economy.

Room tip: Taylor Swift was in town and the city center was inaccessible after midday.Cardiff Skycar-bus that does a loop around the city, hop on/off

complete shambles at check in and very disappointing as we had requested an early check in, which I understand is not guarnteed but really did not expect to be as late as 3.45, we were told rooms would be ready ASAP as they were being checked, we eventually got to them to find no towels in 2 of our rooms. We had booked an early dinner as were going to a show and barely had time to change, reception staff were unhelpful and no manager was available. We were eventually offered complimentary breakfasts but since have realised that I was charged for 2, I have complained again and have been offered. A complimentary upgrade on my next stay - subject to availabilty! Dreadful customer service, will not be returning

Very expensive hotel. I bought new Gucci swimming trunks especially for this stay only to find out that there was NO swimming pool! The elevator did not stop at floor 3 which is a problem as I was staying ON floor 3! I either had to walk up from floor 2 or down from floor 4 depending on who was in the lift with me so they could carry my bags. On arrival to my room I found that there was NO toilet! Having paid all this money I didn't expect to use a communal toilet, after a few hours I needed to go for a poo, so I asked another guest where the communal toilet was, I was told that my room did indeed have a toilet and that it was behind the bathroom door that opens into the bathroom! HAVE THE HOTEL NOT HEARD ABOUT INSTRUCTIONS ON TOILET USE?! The television was also terrible, very few channels, no streaming, HDMI didn't connect to my Windows XP laptop, it was so old it could have had Ceefax! On the plus side the bed was comfortable and the hotel had very wide corridors, ALL hotels should have wide corridors.

Room tip: Check prices as some other guests paid half what i paid for a room

Great location only 5 minute walk from the Marina and the Millennium Centre.

Lots of parking.

Booked a suite and it was a good size with 2 genuinely separate rooms.

Loads of restaurants all within a 5 minute walk.

Friendly staff

Very big bed, but the bedding really was not big enough.

Not so good was the colour of the furniture, muddy brown/beige which just makes it look dirty. Room had power points but not vey accessible. Bath had a shower over this and a shower curtain - shower curtains are never that welcoming a prospect, even more so when they start to move in and touch you whilst showering.

Breakfast a bit chaotic with coffee machines and toaster being real pinch points and access to the buffet being very narrow. Fried egg was cold which is not appealing.

Overall this felt like a bit American chain hotel that relies on high volume of one night stays and not repeat business.

Room tip: If you use Apple product you need to a special access code to use WiFi - Never had this before and make sure to ask when you check in.
