Great stay
We had a great stay. The hotel was close to a grocery store which was great and near local buses that took us downtown quickly. There was also a great pub restaurant nearby. It was a longish walk into the hotel down the street from the main road and of course not downtown but it had adequate space. And when we asked to have our room changed because it was very noisy one night on the ground floor by the entrance for several hours, they promptly moved us to a quieter room.

One night in Cardiff
The hotel was clean and has excellent facilities, including a pool that was welcoming of kids. It was a bit of a walk to restaurants and services, but not unmanageable. The car park outside was also an asset. One criticism would be the size of the pull out bed for two children. It realistically fit one comfortably but we made it work. All in all a good stay.
