We stayed in the hotel for one night as it was close to Cardiff arena. It's location is brilliant. 15 minute walk to Cardiff bay and 5 minutes to the main centre. The room itself was lovely. We had a middle priced room and the only thing that let it down was the ice cube tray in the fridge was...

Had a good stay here - room was nice, breakfast was decent - lobby and bar area was modern and clean. Nice quiet location and short-ish walk across a bridge to get to the city centre. Would stay here again as it was also decently priced.
