We even enjoyed a lovely chilled glass of Prosecco. The service was excellent and the staff were polite and courteous. We even got a glimpse of the Bristol rugby team warming up for...

The hotels staff were amazing and very well organised. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Loads of parking and hotel is situated in a great position walking distance from the Cardiff Castle. I would definitely use this hotel again and recommend it to anyone.

Very good central location with the parking onsite, which is good for a city centre IHG. The staff were good, allbeit I felt at breakfast they weren't 100% on the ball, as I had to wait sometime at the front desk of the area to give my room number. Other than that all fine.

There was a very good choice of food at breakfast and it tasted good. We pre-booked paying around £70 for the night we were a bit shocked that when we arrived they...

I am never sure about city centre hotels but this was a pleasant surprise; situated almost opposite Cardiff Castle and with it's own ca park (though my midi-coach wouldn't have fitted!) The staff are friendly and accommodating, the two breakfasts good (that said I do get annoyed at old people stealing my toast from the self-service toaster but that is...
