Basic but comfortable and great location

The room was definitely compact however, it served it's purpose for one nights sleep. It is right in the centre of town very handy to buses and trains and walkable to all central tourist attractions. My only issue was with missing information from the compendium - the contents page mentioned there was information about luggage storage and information about fitness facilities, when I went to the numbered pages, neither topic was covered.

Everything ok except

My daughter was the one stayed in this hotel for 7 nights, everything was okay except ...oh her last day, when she checked out, she forgot her mob phone charger (iPhone charger) in the room and was able to call the hotel right after that, but they said they did not found it:-(. Small thing but not make her stay perfect!

Perfect business hotel

Easily reached from the train station I was a little confused about getting to reception but figured the lift out to the lobby fairly quickly. Reception staff were very friendly and had my room ready ahead of schedule. The room was better than I expected given the price and was really well presented and clean. I stay in many hotels and e key items for me are comfortable beds (obviously), a clean and working iron and ironing board, good towels and toiletries and a good temperature. Even though it was a very hot day by Cardiff standards the room was comfortable and i didn't even need the air con. The bed was excellent and the bathroom faultless. I didn't eat at the hotel as it is so centrally located there are myriad bars , cafés and restaurants around. However the breakfast room and bar area looked good. Overall it was an excellent stay and huge value for money.

Noy good enough

Although a well presented hotel in a great area of Cardiff during my stay I encountered a few issues. The first one being the lack of information about parking and when finally told the fact that is cost £12 per car. Which I feel was very expensive for hotel parking. Overall Cleanliness of the room was good however the chair provided was filthy all over. My last issue was with the door to the room. Every time a neighbouring room open/closed their door our door slammed against the frame waking my partner and I up thoughout the night. The hotel did offer us a free upgrade next time we stayed however this was only a verbal agreement with the receptionist, I won't be staying here again.

I though that the check in time

I though that the check in time was relativly late (3pm) compared with other hotels that I have stayed in. However, when we did return earlier at 2pm we were checked in.

Fantastic, we were able to check

Fantastic, we were able to check in early and also leave our cases before our train left The staff were wonderfully polite and helpful 2 minor observations only, the toilet roles were a bit 'cheap' (we like really soft ones..) we were given a map with instructions to the inernatioal arena, but we didnt realise at first that there were 2 entrances, and the map reflected the journey from the opposite enrance to which we entered
