We were booked in for a works retirement party. Reception was fast and efficient. And the room was compact but really nice. I had a view of the court yard. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was boiling. The bar was trendy and they served a good range of drinks. The hotel is very close to some of Cardiff's... More

The Park Plaza is a very modern hotel in downtown Cardiff. We arrived by train and it is an easy walk from the station, though it does take about 15 minutes, so taxis are available for those who prefer that option. The hotel is well located in Cardiff, near the shopping high street, the castle and the university, as well... More

Another fabulous stay at this luxurious city centre hotel. We attended the Rocky Horror show next door at New Theatre Cardiff so Park is a perfect place to dress up and then walk over. We stayed one night. Bed is gigantic but what really impresses was the post show room service. Great quality and very unroom-service-like. Breakfast was OK and... More

Spent a lovely couple of hours having afternoon tea at the Park Plaza. I'm not usually one for this sort of thing, having anxiety attacks about weather finger sandwiches and a couple of cakes would fill me up. However, I was proved wrong. Having made the wise choice of choosing the 'Gentleman's Tea' option for myself, I was suitably impressed... More

We have been staying at the PP for a number of years and always had an excellent experience. On this occasion, the room we were in (408 as I recall) was just starting to feel a little tired and worn. For instance, the window was difficult to shut property and the seal seemed a little loose letting in some excess... More

This place is amazing. Staff are friendly and welcoming. The lobby is comfy with a lovely fire place. Peaceful and chilled. Has a bar to the back which is a bit dark but is a good thing. Gives it something. Smoking area for the smokers and seems to be smack bang in the middle of somewhere central as was heaving... More
