We spent Monday to Friday in our apartment. We were late arriving due to a meeting and 30 minutes traffic in Cardiff. The representative was fantastic and waited for us. Such a lovely woman. Showed us how everything worked and said if we needed fresh towels whilst we were there to ring. The place was very clean, lovely and modern.... More

The apartment was Ok and the view over the river was good. However the block we stayed in was like a concrete council block. We stayed in the same complex 3 years ago so were disappointed with how the standard has dropped.

The 3 bedroom apartment was great for a family visit to Cardiff and had everything we needed. It felt very safe in a gated community, however, the apartment needs a good clean! The kitchen sink would benefit from some bleach and I had to move the furniture in the bedroom to access the socket and no vacuum has been anywhere... More

Have stayed 4 other times and love the bay. It has lots of restaurants and bars within walking distance. Have walked back and forth to city centre but love walking.

Great value for money. Friendly staff and amazing apartment (No 174). The rooms had all you needed for a week, modern kitchen and good furniture. The flats lie within a secured area with gates and fences around the whole building complex, which is great. Buses operate on regular bases from nearby bus stations.

The apartment was comfortable, clean and spacious. It was good value for money. We had Instant attention from staff when a light bulb blew and it was replaced. It is convenient and for both the Bay and the city centre.

Staff very helpful, Apartment awful! Dirty walls, chairs tatty/ripped, living room carpet stained, hairs on en-suit floor & tiles off wall, hole in wardrobe door, lampshades damaged, cheap bedding, pillows uncomfortable. Only stayed for two nights so put up with it but won't be returning.
