Hotel was lovely, room was very big and food was hot and value for money.
Hotel is in a great location close to Cardiff bay and the arena.

We stayed on the 4th March in suite 501/502. Amazing price for a spacious set of rooms. We loved the seating area, when we watched the France V Ireland game. The free parking is always a bonus, the welcome very friendly and the check in speedy. The suite was clean and tidy, just the tiny issue of a handle missing off the TV cabinet in the bedroom area, however I think the fact that is all we picked up on proves what a pleasant stay it was. The bed was HUGE and very comfortable, and despite the busy road network in the area the room was very quiet. The bathroom was well kept. The location was perfect for us attending a concert at the WMC, only a 10 minute walk away. We used the bar on our return to the hotel, and were warmly welcomed by the bar staff. Breakfast, great buffet selection, and the waiter again was very welcoming. If you are looking for a hotel with great room rates in the Bay area, you would not go wrong with Future Inn. We'll be back!

We booked Future Inn very last minuite for one night last weekend. We booked a King family suite (room 534/533), which is a good sized room with huge bed with an adjoining lounge with sofa bed so the kids can have lights out before you!! The rooms have DVD players, to rent a film is £6.95 so we didn't bother. Staff are friendly, food ok but basic . Eating out in the evening we went to Chinquitos just across from the hotel, fab fun atmosphere but go early or book as it was packed! Visit Techniquest, great value and the kids can go mad playing with lots of cool gadgets, the whole family will enjoy it. We took a 45min boat trip around the bay, kids loved it.
Overall for a last min stress-free fun trip away we loved it

Room Tip: go directly to their website, I found a few family rooms available. Ours was a King Suite £132 B&...

The Future Inn, Cardiff Bay is situated on the 'wrong' side of Cardiff Bay, behind the Red Dragon Centre and overlooking the docks and the relief road, so no lovely sea views and quite difficult to find. However, it is only a four minute walk to the Millenium Centre and all the bars and restaurants of the Bay and is, despite overlooking a fast main road, extremely quiet.
The reception is bright and welcoming and the staff pleasant and efficient. All the rooms are a good size, most either with a queen bed and sofa plus arm chair or with two queen-sized beds. The bathroom is a reasonable size and has a shower over the bath, which gives a choice for bath-lovers. The bed was fine, though the pillows were a bit hard.

There is nothing extra special about the Future Inn (no spa, pool, club etc), it's quite faceless really, but it has everything you could want for a stay in that part of Cardiff - the staff are all friendly and helpful; the rooms are clean, spacious and quiet; there is free parking and it is convienient. On this occasion we decided not to eat in the hotel, not having enjoyed it much on a previous visit, so we strolled down to the Bay for breakfast instead.

Stayed here with a group of people attending a function in the Bay.
Very pleasant professional efficient reception staff - in fact all the staff were friendly and efficient.

Rooms large with very comfortable beds and pillows.

Not a pretty hotel but well positioned for the bay inc the Millennium Centre, with the city centre accessible by park and ride or taxi.

Good value. Will stay here again.
