I really didn't know what to expect after reading some of the negative reviews but after my visit, I genuinely cannot believe people have found things to be negative about! The check-in and check-out process was so easy! The staff were really friendly and really helpful. The room was really nice and modern, clean, and had everything I needed. The bed was so comfy and it was really quiet so I had a great night sleep. Probably the best parking deal I could find to with the ncp discount. definitely my first choice for Cardiff

We arrived early at the hotel to leave our luggage before later check in. We were told we had a double room and we requested the beds split. This didn't seem a problem and they assured us it would be done on our return. When we returned we were told our room had been upgraded and I was assured the beds had been separated. Keen to get to the room, I would have preferred a quick check-in rather than hearing about the member of staff's arduous journey to work that day. When we got to the room the beds were not separated and I had to call reception. We went to the spa where the view is far from serene or relaxing. I thought the facilities would be regularly wiped down given current circumstances but they weren't. There aren't enough heat beds for the amount of guests permitted at a time. On leaving the spa I tried to take a plastic beaker of cucumber water with me but I was told I wasn't allowed. The same plastic beakers are in the room. We asked if there might be an alternative vessel and we were told there wasn't but we could sit down and finish it. Back to the room for a luke warm shower as that's as hot as it got. No chair near a mirror to do make up or hair and and the lighting is very poor throughout the room. At dinner there wasn't a great choice for vegetarians but I plumped for the I risotto which came swimming in oil and was inedible. I was told that's how risotto is eaten in Italy. Certainly, it is often drizzled with oil but in all the times I have eaten risotto in Italy its never been flooded with oil. Dessert was delicious. The bed and pillows were comfortable but a green fire alarm light flashes through the night. This wasn't just in our room - we checked with friends. If this was an upgraded room I dread to think what the original room was like. Another luke warm shower in the morning followed by a chaotic breakfast. The waiter didn't explain how breakfast works and didn't ask if there were any vegetarians in the party. There was one slice of bacon left and one egg. Replenishment was slow and the space where the breakfast is laid out is confined. No vegetarian options at breakfast and so I had to request that. I was brought to Birdseye vegetable fingers - we're not still in 1980, vegetarian food really has progressed but not at this hotel. They were left uneaten along with the hash brown that was really greasy. Apparently the sausages had little flavour. This is part of a well established group of hotels and I did not expect the poor service, badly designed rooms and terrible food.

Hotel is brand new. Rooms are well furnished and comfortable. Bathroom is nice and spacious. Very central location, next to the rugby stadium. Unfortunately services are poor. The staff is nice but very disorganized. Dinner and breakfast were very disappointing. There is big room for improvement.

We were staying on sat night and were looking forward to the stay .On arrival we were met by a very competent reception manager Ryan . We checked in and went to a very nice, clean and spacious room . However when we went to see about lunch and a drink in the bar to our surprise Ryan was there serving drinks on his own ! It was clear there were just not enough staff to serve the customers .No warm food was available in the bar area and when we went to the main dining area we were told there were plenty of eating places outside in Cardiff !!! If this hotel has aspirations of a 5 star establishment then as my title says sort things out .No cocktails were available due to staff shortages .I understand there are issues with staff but to be charged full price for the stay here is not really that professional considering the hotel is nowhere near ready to receive paying customers . The evening meal was pleasant and enjoyable as was the peaceful sleep ,however the breakfast was poor to say the least . Again for a five star establishment the choices were very limited on the cereal and fruit side as was the organisation of the buffet . As for the presentation of scrambled eggs ,fried eggs like bullets ,dried up bacon ,soggy hash browns it did not leave us with the best experience. Let’s hope these issues are resolved soon. The staff were pleasant in a very challenging situation . Thanks again to Ryan let’s hope you get some help going forward .

Stayed for a birthday treat. Absolutely beautiful. Room overlooking the Principality Stadium. Great as we are rugby fans. Beautiful, spotless room. Lovely shower room. Checked in on my phone. Keyless entry to the room, they send a link to an app and you use Bluetooth to open door, loved this feature. Every member of staff you meet is so polite. Spent the night in the bar which was lovely. Breakfast was amazing such a beautiful setting. Food was hot and plentiful. I watched the cook checked the food on numerous occasions. Went to look at the function room which I have to say looks stunning. There we bumped into General Manager who was lovely and chatted for a while giving an insight into the Work that had gone into the building. I have to say absolutely loved our stay here and will definitely be booking another stay.
