Value and Clean but inconvenient and basic
The hotel was decent value for money for a Friday evening in Cardiff. Only one lift was in operation which was very inconvenient with social distancing and for a hotel with so many floors. The room was clean but basic and uninspiring. There was no mirror in front of dressing table for my girlfriend to get ready. I would stay again for the lower price paid but certainly not a premium

Disappointing trip to Radisson Blu Cardiff
Hi, I have to say, upon arrival and check in to our room I rang reception straight away to say we had no heating apart from a small plug in heater. They managed to fix the air con by the time we had got back to room later that day, however even set at 26 degrees with a plug in heater too we still found ourselves cold. We had to use the stairs on 2 occasions as lifts were slow and only one in use. This was a long slog up and down. The room was very dates and not comfortable for ur needs. Not even a hair dryer. I have stayed in Radisson Blu hotels mania time in the past and this did not reach the quality I am accustom too. We were also put in a room out the back end looking over the railway and counted at least 5 times we both woke up in the night from trains. We were horrified to notice a number of youths causing trouble and not following the social distancing guidelines or wearing masks. The staff did not once bring them up on this and let them carry on as normal. I really a not one to moan or complain but this stay was not a good one and anything you can do to rectify this disappointing trip would be gratefully appreciated. Kind Regards Tom Carpenter
