I liked our view of the bay and the hotel was lovely. It's the kind of hotel that takes itself too seriously. It was billed as a five star resort, but the only difference I could see between it and any other hotel in the states was the bidet in the bathroom.
The Spa was a lovely treat with excellent resources. The reception staff were very poorly trained. The person who dealt with my group on arrival was very abrupt and quite rude.
The staff was courteous and the rooms were very clean. The access to the spa facilities was easy. Breakfast was a good value and the food was delicious. Parking was limited and I had to pay to park, even after booking a full weekend in the hotel.
The cooked breakfast was not very special. Rather sparce, bacon hard.
Able to relax after a long journey made to feel very welcome at all times from the staff.
I can't fault this hotel in any way, i will definitely stay there again when i'm in Cardiff.
Free champagne bought to us, as it was our wedding night. Prices of food meant that we waited until home to eat breakfast.
All staff were very efficient and friendly. Our room was excellent. Arrival and departure were achieved most efficiently. No
The bed was extremely comfortable, and the food in the restaurant was excellent, the cheese board was outstanding. Nothing
Everything! Wine at £8 a glass was expensive.
Very good but slightly expensive.
Room had great view, really clean and well kept. Lack of beverages available in room.
car parking facility was too small. On the first night the hotel carpark was full and we drove for 1 and a half hours to find another overnight one. We had to get a taxi back to the hotel.Simply ridicuolous! We are frequent travellers and have stayed in numerous hotels around the world and in all that time I have never stayed 4 * and not had some kind of biscuits with the tea &coffee facilities which only had a enough milk for 1 cup each in the morning. Long queue of people as we checked in with only 1 desk open even though there was staff present.See trip advisor for comments.
Location, comfort A swimming pool would have been a real benefit
The location was good for our needs.
The hotel was very well situated and very clean and comfortable The service in the bar and the resturant was very poor and very slow due to a severe shortage of staff, we also found the bar very expensive and were being charged different prices every time for the same drinks.
Close to city centre Lack of parking, all nearby car parks full, including Joihn Lewis. Overheard other guests bitterly complaining about this situation.The hotel is not cheap to stay at, one would asume that an there would be an arrangement in place.
Room fab, breakfast / eating area fab, hotel generally nicely laid out and very modern. Queuing at reception to check in. Hotel should have a few more desks / staff ready for when lots of people arrive at once to check in. Probably waited 10 to 15 minutes. The price of the room!!! Very high and had no choice but to pay as attending u2 concert at Millennium Stadium. I think that the hotel would know they would be full and could have perhaps not charged the premium rate to ensure we all returned again. Now we will book up early to avoid having to spend so much money for just one night.
Rooms were lovely with great views over the city.
Location Thick dust on closet. Poor bathroon/tub design. Mediocre staff. Unwelcoming lobby. Well below other RadissonBlu properties
Location and rooms were outstanding. Breakfast well worth the extra cost and very helpful staff. WIFI good. Parking access
The room was lovely, plenty of room and the breakfast was excellent.
convenience for cardiff bay, parking facilities included in room rate suite was extravagantly large - could have been better utilised as a single and a double room
freindly staff, helpful, the halls and corridors were clean and luvlly and warm. the temperature was -6 at night and 0 day time, so the room was freezin, the heating system does not work well, did ask reception, but the temp 28 did not seem to blow out hot air. we had to put the bath towels on top of the duvet and slept with extra clothes on. i think with better heating yr hotel would be very good. cannot recomend this hotel at moment until yr heating system is improved upon.
The room and view was excellent I think it would have been nice for breakfast to be included in the price
Comfortable and helpful staff
Everything ... it was wonderful!
Comfortable and all of the rooms we booked were near each other. Cost of breakfast is high considering the room prices are also high due to the rugby game.
Nice light rooms with good facilities.
the staff were very helpful and the food in the restaurant was lovley we found the room cold.the price of breakfast was very expensive for people who just wanted some toast and tea
No room service available
Large rooms, comfortable beds, good shower, air conditioning, very clean. No
Front desk staff very helpful. N/a
The building was a comercial building refurbished.The rooms are very small.Dont have privte parking. The access to the hotel is very difficult by car.Dont have a parking in front of the reception to leave the luggages.
Rooms were smallish but immaculate and the trains were not intrusive for us., and the views good -- we could see the Bay! Location excellent for shopping, rugby at the Millenium Stadium and cultural events at the Millenium Hall and loads of cafes and restaurants within easy walk. Breakfast buffet good value and several Hen parties didnt cause any problems /noise. A great weekend, and Wales won!!!!
Excellent check in allowed us to have linked for the family. Good breakfast but a bit pricey for a familyAcces Finding the hotel entrance by car is rather complicated
Staff, ambience, quality and value. Ideally located for city-centre attractions Didn't find any, except a room-mate who snored heavily!
Helpful and pleasant staff, good parking facilities, great outdoor area for al fresco dining and a Pims or three! No mini bar - and the mini bar/fridge was actually switched off so we couldn't even chill what room service provided.
some confsion ober resevation as booked via booking.com, but staff were pleasant,confident and very efficient went out for breakfast as £15 seemed expensive.
Location, cleanliness and very helpful staff. None.
very friendly and help full staff, great location will stay there again.
prompt polite service,nicely decorated room Lights in the bar were too low and made you want to sleep!
Friendly and helpful staff
Excellent location, excellent service, excellent hotel
Well appointed room with all of the amenities we needed. None noted.
Great quality and brilliant friendliness. Gave us late checkout no problem, which was a big help. Awesome massage Showers and some other things int he gym were not same quality as the hotel. Got a Double room instead of twin as booked.
Comfortable room The main bar/lounge was closed, only the small bar with limited seating in the reception was open. Ranked against other similar hotel chains breakfast was not as good.
Room service meal was good Too many extras, especially breakfast.
The leasure facilities were very good. and the location was excellent. The menu for the resturant was not very good and expensive when compared to the room service menu.
We found the staff to be courteous, efficient, very helpful and friendly. The hotel is ideally placed, within easy walking distance shopping centers, attractions & the Millenium stadium. Would recommend to others as a base to explore Cardiff from. There were only 2 things that I didn't like about the stay, firstly the price of a drink in the bar was excessive at £7.45 for a G&T. Secondly the breakfast was excellent apart from my husband complaining that his baked beans were "like bullets, they were that hard", but that was the only criticism.
relaxing in the bar during the evenings. the staff were warm and welcoming and it had a great atmosphere there was a fire drill just after we checked in and we were left standing outside in the cold for over half an hour, leaving our coffees and lunch in the lobby bar. :-(
The friendly staff and clean room all in a very central location.
lounge trashed by wedding party, bad language used by wedding party, behaviour of wedding party. left to run riot.
Well managed hotel and, for my part, in a good location for access to the Millennium Stadium. Facilities within the hotel were excellent. The availability for parking was a bonus as this wasn't available with other hotels in the same area.
Staff friendly manner Only one roast on a Sunday lunch!!!
The large clean bedrooms and friendly staff. The snack food also seemed good value. Car Park was a bit tight
The reception staff were rude, discourteous and looked like we were intruding by staying there and asking them to rectify an issue with the room (i.e no hot water and no water pressure in the room). After chasing this issue up, we were finally moved to another (lower standard room) at 1.30am in the morning, which clearly didn't add to a relaxing stay at the hotel!!!
The room was very good apart from the huge crack running through the outer glazing of the picture window! Fantastic views across the city. Very busy because of the Autumn rugby international Wales v New Zealand. Long delay during check out with only two staff on duty one of whom had to answer the phone and take a booking! She then proceeded to chat to a member of staff going off duty. A small niggle but becoming more prevalent among some hotel gropus is that on weekends they don't supply mushrooms with the breakfast menu. Still charge the same price though - £15.95! A con.
Perfect location for city centre.
large bedroom air conditioning did not work and no way of opening windows therefore extremely hot! 2 false fire alarms during the night meant we got little sleep
nothing in particular, it was ok the showers in pool changing room & the fact there were no cubicles to change in
The size of the room was amazingly big and the beds were very comfortable, I would highly recommend staying on the twelve floor as the views are amazing The fire alarm sounded early Sunday morning, not a good wake up!!
Closeness to city centre Only able to check in 2 minutes before stated time
It is a very comfortable hotel, located conveniently downtown Cardiff. A room was large and comfortable, nice bed. Hotel has good restaurant; breakfast which was included was delicious. We once also had dinner at the hotel , it also was very good. Staff was polite and helpful.
Good location, nicely laid out - spacious bar and restaurant. We were given a disabled room, with a seat in the very small shower that wouldn't fold. Britains Got Talent auditions were being held there in the morning, the hotel should have made me aware of that - I booked six months in advance. Very expensive considering quality and facilities. Poor car parking facilities.
it felt like a home from home. Cannot praise enough all staff, from room valets ,waiters/waitress to floor and front of house staff!
It was all excellent, from the reception staff to the room to the restaurant staff and food.
Good staff customer care, a great swimming pool and the restaurant menu was diverse and well priced. No
High standards but very laid back and relaxing
Very friendly staff. Exceeded our expectations. Good central location. Rooms were of very high standard. Car parking very expensive.
friendly helpful staff
Beautiful hotel with the best staff
the excelent service provided by staff the bedroom was cold.
location and friendly staff
This is a good hotel with good facilities and excellent staff.
The room was superb and situated on a high floor as requested with a view over the gardens. Very welcoming staff and we had a very good dinner in the restaurant. Lovely spacious room and lots of interesting contemporary features. Very central for Cardiff shops etc. The breakfast was not very good as it was the buffet style with little choice. It would be a great advantage if breakfast could be cooked to order.
all the above n/a
close to the stadium
helpfulness of the staff
The staff were so friendly and helpful and the rooms were spacious and very clean.
It was a very short visit, butthe room was lovely and the late check-out time was ideal All good
A very very clean and bright warm and comfort at the top of the list. Could have a bigger public areas.
room size was good, staff were very friendly
location, cleanliness, value for money. queue for breakfast and then poor selection due to inability to keep up with demand.
Proximity to cia The rooms were cold during this cold weather. could do with an extra blanket on the bed
The Hotel was clean and welcoming breakfast excellent and healthy, the staff were all very polite,helpful and friendly. Have stayed before and would recommended it no
Comfortable room. Friendly staff. Good food. Excellent facilities. Lovely view over the lake. Problems with taxis - there didn't seem to be enough co-ordination between the reception desk & the drivers re. reference numbers.
Stayed here many times and always found that the restaurant is excellent. When I tried to book direct they quoted a very high price in comparison, even after Ive stayed there many times before.
The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished, the pool and fitness centre is great if you want to work out or relax. The food is excellent quality, however the bar/room service menu could be enhanced with a few more options. Overall excellent value for money. The Internet is not available in all rooms. If the hotel sort this out it's the ideal location.
The restaurant staff were very helpful The decfinated coffee in the bar is £2.80 per cup and it was very hard to confirm it was coffee, it was undrinkable
Housekeeping was poor for this standard of hotel.
The location,facilities, luxurious bed and very accomodating & helpful staff Carpets seen better days & cars racing in shop car parks opposite made it impossible to get to sleep until the early hours
Good location for Cardiff centre as long as you have a car. Good breakfast and pleasent suroundings
Value for money, excellent location Two single beds fixed together to give the illusion of one huge bed - it was so uncomfortable, especially in the middle
Convenient for millennium stadium
Breakfast being charged at £13.50 a head is an out & out joke, for this reason alone we would never go back, but also to be charged £5 a day car parking as well
The location was superb. Parking onsite at a reasonable cost. Thought that the rooms were a bit dated. The windows were very 'shaky'a and due to the location there was quite a lot of noise at night.
We ordered room service, from a choice of 4 main courses we were told 3 were not available, we ordered what was available it was practically inedible and expensive.
The room charge was low so value for money in that respect The room needed to painted and brightened up as did the bathroom. It had the air of being a bit 'tired'
Staff were friendly and helpful. The Angel is a great location for visiting Cardiff within walking distance of most things and an inexpensive cab ride from the Bay. The Angel is a happily eccentric building, but becoming a bit shabby at the price. Breakfast was bland in flavour, but efficiently served by friendly waiting staff.
The waiter was extremely helpful, he couldn't do enough for us The prices in the bar and restarant, too over priced
Central location Air con unit stuated right outside bedroom window to therefore very noisy during the night--also wedding function taking place so was loud music till 1-00am on the sat/sun.
Central for everything, lovely hotel
Staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was perfect for shopping in the city and near bus routes around the city to see the sights. Would definately book again. Parking not bookable and limited but staff made every effort to help. Double glazing in the rooms would cut down traffic noise which is unavoidable in a city location.
