I stayed with three children prior to a swimming competition at the Cardiff International Pool. Good location - central to many places to visit in Cardiff and Cardiff Bay. We had two double beds, a clean bathroom with bath and overhead shower which are Hansgrohe. Given shampoo, body wash and soap and complimentary bottle of water. The only problem was the toilet took a long time to flush, having to "pump" the handle many times! However, have stayed here previously without any such problem. Free wifi which is essential especially for the kids. Didn't have time to use any facilities at the hotel although there is a laundry and ice machines. Didn't have time for breakfast as leaving too early but the bar looked nice enough although quiet.
Would recommend if staying overnight in Cardiff. Car parking is free.

This could have been cheap and nasty (I won't name names but there are chains I avoid like the plague). The reviews say 'small rooms' and they're pretty small, that's true, but genuinely, we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were super clean, extremely well laid out (really inventive use of space) and the only tiny thing that wasn't ideal was (I know this will sound ridiculous!) the size of the sink. I'm not exactly tall but I still managed to just get water everywhere when I washed my face. Like, everywhere, though... But then it is a wet room, so it makes zero difference...
Would just also like to say that the staff were fantastic: called me the day before because I'd booked two rooms under one name to 'make booking in a little smoother' when we arrived. They were friendly, polite, knowledgable and a pleasure to deal with (both the day and night staff, hope your management read this and please feel free to share, thank you!) Food in the restaurant was much better than expected (had expected 'scary-looking-straight-out-of-microwave' but it was good).
Breakfast hit the spot, parking not on site but very close, hotel is in the middle of everything but kind of just over the road from it (so no noise over night on a busy Saturday - bonus).
