Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked based on price and proximity to the Cardiff Arena. Met expectations on both counts. Excellent check in experience with two helpful members of staff. Free onsite parking. Large, clean room with drinks making facilities, hairdryer, complimentary bottled water and toiletries. There was an iron and board in room and a safe. There is a bar and restaurant on site vut we didnt use so can't comment but based on the, rest of the hotel I'd imagine they'd be good. Would happily stay again and reccomend to others.

I love staying at this hotel when I'm visiting my gorgeous grandchildren in the school holidays. The team are amazing - everyone is so friendly and helpful. Special shout out to the wondrous people looking after me on a morning when I come down to enjoy the most delicious breakfasts. I had a lovely surprise from Foysol Ahmed this last visit as he remembered I like hot frothy milk to go with my coffee and without me having to even go to the bar to ask, he arrived at my table with a jug. Talk about excellent customer service!!!!

Wardrobe too small and awkward. Otherwise, room absolutely fine. Cleanliness throughout good. Staff courteous and helpful. Dinner and breakfast satisfactory. What I have said sums up succinctly all I wish to say.

Always a pleasure to stay here. Great location, friendly team, welcome environment, clean, comfortable rooms. It has become my preferred hotel in Cardiff. 8 minutes walk from the Cardiff Bay barrage, Senedd and a lot of great restaurants. Free parking.. Need I go on???

This was one of the cheaper options at the time of booking, and whilst the location is a little awkward (it was about 40 minutes walk from the centre, and 45 mins from the ice arena we went to watch the ice hockey at), it had ample parking which was lacking at many of the other hotels we looked at. The staff were relatively friendly and the hotel was clean and everywhere felt very spacious. The rooms were nice if a little dated in decor, and the beds surprisingly comfy. My only issues with the stay was the some of the rooms on the same floors doors being really loud when they were closed late at night, other than that I’d probably stay here again!

All in all a very positive experience. We had a problem with our room, ( the window wouldn't close properly ) but after a very nice and helpful chap on reception looked into it, he changed us to another one, and all was well. As others have said, nice big rooms, everything worked, and a short walk to Cardiff Bay attractions, It rained for most of our stay, but nothing the hotel could do about that! I would recommend the Future Hotel.

The hotel is quiet and has all the basic amenities that you would wish for. It is a decent experience and not expensive. I left a jacket behind by mistake and the hotel staff dealt with locating it, and advising me how I could get it back very efficiently.
