staff very helpful. also very conveniently situated for cardiff airport in respect of early morning flights with transport provisions.
no comment everything very satisfactory,
The breakfast, good value in a relaxed environment.
comfortable bed ,warm room, and helpful staff . Breakfast simple and adequate for airport hotel . Large bathroom (disabled although I am able bodied )
Basin tap didnt work but this was quickly rectified .
The lounge was comfortable to sit in. I liked that one could eat (outside!) food there. Found the cleaning staff very curteous and helpful
At arrival, didn't find staff very professional. The lady was on the phone and swore while we were waiting to be helped. Found staff very slow, both at reception as at the bar. Had to wait for a long time to get helped. Rooms very noisy from other guests. Had requested wake-up call and didn't get it, so it was good I had set my own alarm as a back-up, otherwise would've missed my 6 o' clock plane!! The television screen in the lobby only showed arrivals, whereas it would obviously make more sense to show departures (especially during this period where many flights were cancelled due to snow!!)!! Fitness area was very small and only had 3 exercise machines, which I found a bit misleading from the description of the hotel. Shuttle left late!
It's proximity to Cardiff airport
Friendly staff from the moment I arrived through the entrtance door.
The staff were extremely helpful and understanding , we flew in early for a wedding and would be there all day. The staff allowed us to check in early which made things a lot less hassle in a very busy and stressful day.
I have stayed in most of the hotels in the area and I found that this was the best of the group, although a little more expensive. The rooms was of a good standard, clean and everything worked! The staff were effecient, The breakfast was well presented with a large choice of cereals and fruiy.
Clean, pleasant atmosphere, good staff, nice food.
friendly staff, and mangement, hotel was very clean and generally i felt comfortable...
At night I would of loved to open a window even on the first floor but not possible and the heater no matter I low we tunrit was too warm...breakfast was not that great either..but I would stay there again!!!
convenient location , comfortable bed with choice of pillows. comfortable lounge area and more than adequate breakfast.
no place to plug in a hair straighteners or curling iron? mirrored area has no electrical outlets and electical outlet is at desk area with no mirror. clearly not a room designed for women!
We slept all night down hill it seemed like because 2 legs on the bed where broken. Reported it in the morning to staff , to just a thanks for letting us no ;-0(((
The hotel was clean, very nice environment. The best thing though was the staff who were really helpful.
It was all good.
We stayed at the hotel as our parents in law were flying early the next day. May mother in law was overwelhmed with the bus driver who brought the wheelchairs to the bus, knowing that they had assistance at the airport. Reception made sure they were awake after their early morning alarm calll by call again after 5 minutes. Very impressed with the staff.
Very convenient, suited our purpose for a overnight stay, did not find the on site parking facility on the Web site so I parked in long stay at the airport
