Modern apartment with plenty of space, fully equipped kitchen, great location next to many restaurants, Dr. Who Experience, etc. With a quick taxi or train ride you can get to the city centre. Clean and comfortable. High speed internet too!

Excellent location, right opposite the Millenium Centre and walking distance to the Cardiff Bay eateries, shops and Techniquest. A stylish apartment which was great except for a few minors; cupboards were unclean, towel rail was cold, balcony furniture also unclean. As we had sunny mornings during our stay, we were keen to have al fresco breakfast. Worked out well for... More

Overall very nice stay, near to shops and restaurants, good transport links, clean place, good customer service, only negative thing is that the rug in the room was too slippery, nearly fell over, please change them, they are dangerous. Will highly recommend this place.

The bed was comfortable, though being larger people it would have been nice if it had been queen size. The facilities and amenities were very nice.
