Exceptional 10.0
Love it! I’m
This is the second time I’ve stayed at the Exchange. It’s a lovely hotel. Very interesting building, full of character & history. The rooms are big and comfortable with fab bathrooms. Breakfast is good and the restaurant is very excellent for dinner. It’s 10 mins walk from the Bay airport bus stop and close to Millennium Centre.

Lovely hotel in Cardiff Bay
The room was lovely & quite large with a jacuzzi bath. Unfortunately the air con didn’t work as well as required on a hot night. The staff were very pleasant & the interior of the building is very nice

Beautiful building and restoration project. No room service! Bar feels abandoned with only two worn out chairs No Parking, have to pay short term parking via app On positive side, room lovely and spacious.

Fair 4.0
Drunk guests from party and poor customer service
Booked a one night stay on 12th July for my wife's birthday and our anniversary. Was looking forward to a quiet, children-free night away. Unfortunately as there was a corporate party taking place that evening we arrived to 100+ people standing in reception, witnessed people being thrown out of the venue when we came back in the evening (one girl couldn't even stand on her own) and saw a guy following a girl into the toilets. It wasn't what we expected to see in such a grand venue with a good reputation. Also when my wife used the jacuzzi bath she found brown bits of gunk floating in the water that had come out of the jets. There was splash marks on the doors and wardrobe too which hadn't been cleaned. The most disappointing thing though is that we left this feedback with a lady called Sally when we checked out and she promised a same day call back from her manager David, this never came! Such simple customer service and so disappointing when it is not delivered. My advice to anyone wanting a quieter night away would be to check if there is a function on that evening. The hotel took zero responsibility for the behaviour of the party guests and then to make matters worse failed to follow up with us. It is NOT being run like the up-market venue you would think it is from the outside.
