    Great place to find just before Coldplay gig! Lovely and friendly - and perfect setting for a pre-gig Guinness! Relaxing riverside terrace, just up from the concourse. Thank you - and vg to know about.

    The rooms are cleaned every day, the staff is very friendly and the location is perfect! I had a great time in Cardiff and at NosDa! I went there to attend Coldplay's concert and the location couldn't be more convenient.
