Very impressed with the staff, from reception to restaurant. Breakfast had a good range of hot and cold options. Of particular note was the fresh fruit and super sausages. Room was fine over looking the park. Thanks.

I stay here quite often and it’s starting to get a bit tired. Marked walls & carpets in corridors need addressing. Food in restaurant OK, but not the best I’ve had for the price. Staff couldn’t be nicer. Parking is very tight!

How long would it take to walk to the Principality stadium? Thanks
About 5 minutes if that. This hotel is in the perfect location for the majority of Cardiff landmarks. It’s directly opposite Cardiff Castle.
