Expensive price for a mediocre room.

Pros: Great location downtown.
Cons: Friendlier and more welcoming atmosphere for guests, and air conditioning that works.
We were frustrated by our stay at the Cardiff Hilton. The facilities were nice, but important elements weren't available for us. The staff would not allow our teens to swim without an adult (they are 16 and 14) present, and the air conditioning in the room didn't really cool the temperature or control the humidity much. By morning, our room was hotter and much more humid than the hallways despite having set the temperature. Hotel staff were brusque during check in, making us feel like they were doing us a favor! Overall, we would not recommend the hotel, and we won't return next time we are in Cardiff.

Nice hotel, but needs some updating.

Pros: Good location, friendly and helpful staff, pool and hot tub were nice.
Cons: Room needs deep cleaning and mold removed. Updated signs in elevators would be helpful as well.
Location: Right across the road from Cardiff Castle, walking distance to food and shopping. Around 10 minute walk to Cardiff Station. Bus stop right out front.
We booked this hotel to see the Cardiff Castle and the Dr. Who Experience. The staff here was very nice and helpful with our bus and train questions. The business office is convenient and has a printer and good internet. The room that we had on the fifth floor, however, had lots of black mold in the bathroom! My allergies went through the roof. It was along the tile in the shower and in the grout on the floor. Our toilet hadn't been cleaned (gross), and the bed had dirt on the comforter. The carpet needed cleaning as well, as it smelled funny. We let them know about all of it and they seemed very inclined to look into it. Again the staff was very helpful throughout our stay. We had a hard time finding the steam room, which on all the hotel signs says it's on the lobby floor but hasn't been there for two years and is actually in the fitness room. The pool and sauna are both very nice, with a lap lane and clean towels. Hot tub was big and comfy too. Breakfast was great, huge selection and a cook that does good omelettes. Juice smoothies, fresh breads and the like. They have a nice dining area as well with views of the Castle across the street. I liked this hotel and its convenient location, but the room really needs cleaning and updating. Not sure how the other rooms are in the hotel, maybe it was just ours.

Great room, location, and food in Cardiff

Pros: Free Internet, location near attractions
Cons: breakfast quite pricey even with room discount
Spent two evenings on trip to UK in November and this hotel was perfect for the occasion. Room was clean and spacious, food at hotel restaurant was great. Location across from Cardiff castle and near tourist locations in town was great and Cardiff Bay was a short bus or water taxi ride away.
