A slightly disappointing stay. I am quite surprised it is a 4 star hotel, as to me the decor and overall feel were not of this standard. Despite the name, the room seemed quite dated - though it was a decent size (family room). Our room felt very hot - its temperature was set to 28C(!) but even after turning...

Good location, helpful staff, comfortable bed and great breakfast. Didn't like our first room, But we were offered another which was great, with no fuss. Local road layout makes it difficult to be a pedestrian (not the hotel's fault), but the walk to Cardiff Bay centre is easy and safe.

Stayed on the 2nd floor for one night with my partner. Hotel is very easy to find and in a perfect location if you're spending the night around the cinema area of the bay. Room was spacious, clean and had all the modern fixtures and fittings you would expect to find. Miller and carter directly opposite which will please alot...

I was totally impressed with the fluffy bathrobe and slippers provided. More than I got in the Hilton in Liverpool! The bed was comfortable. They staff were supportive, and got me a taxi as requested and on time. I ate lunch in the restaurant. The staff there were pleasant and I had a yummy salad. There were little extras in...

This is a great hotel stayed here with my husband. Staff are helpful and friendly. Free parking. Good access to the restaurants and pubs of the bay. Room was great there was traffic noise from the road but not too bad. First stay at this hotel and will definitely be back.

The Future Inn was part of a package booked through England Rugby Travel. The staff were welcoming and coped well with a very busy weekend. Our room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was very tasty.

I actually rate this hotel 2.5 out of 5 as that's what it is. It's nothing fancy, nothing amazing but a dry comfy bed at least. The road noise was horrific and I couldn't sleep to save my life. Room 417/418. The room was fairly well equipped, but the lighting was very poor and hard to see things at night....

This hotel is brilliantly located, very clean, staff very helpful. Cardiff Bay has everything on it's doorstep. Lots of bars restaurants cinema, bowling , casino. The boat trip into town is very enjoyable and well worth the £4 charge. The city itself has charming arcades and shops and the castle of course. The car park is definitely an added bonus.

“Room 411 overlooks the Bay, but I'm used to no noise whatsoever. I've asked for a room on the car park side of the hotel next time (in March). I didn't realize I had to stick my room 'key' card in the slot to make the electricity work, but reception advised me on this.”
