Very close to the centre it took very little time I'd say around 5 minutes to the centre (walking). It's close to all the attraction e.g Cardiff Castle etc.
They're polite and quiet which is exactly what we're after.
The gym (aerobic and weights) is big enough and is a very close distance to your room, as is the pool, jacuzzi, loungers, steam room and sauna. It's all included in the price of the room and is big enough and nicely done.
Adequate space, the bathroom's nice. Some TV and radio channels are included so that's a bonus. Free coffee, tea, milk, kettle and biscuits. There's also a desk, a phone, an iron and a hairdryer. There's also a heating system for both hot/cold preferences.
You can hear people outside in the hall at around 4.00am who have just come in which did wake us up a few times. A fire alarm also went off in the middle of the night for no apparent reason so I assume that must have just been kids messing around.
It's not really for children to be honest, there's an XBOX 360 and some infant playtoys e.g building blocks but these are out of the way of everything, behind the elevator so you can't really keep an eye on your children if you're in the pool or eating for instance and there's nowhere to sit to watch them play.
The food is expensive and so we ate out throughout the trip.
