“Great Base”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Stayed at the Marriott over the Easter weekend, which worked out very well for us as we travelled up on the train. The station was only mins away so very conveniant. I requested a quiet room and without any prompting was upgraded to an executive room on the 9th floor where you can just about see the bay. The room was clean and well equipped, and the beds comfortable. The breakfast at nearly £16 each was expensive so we popped down to the bay (20 min comfortable stroll) for breakfast on the 1st morning and into the city (the corner house) on the 2nd. The city centre was a 30 second walk away. I would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room

Stayed at this hotel over Easter Weekend. Location in the city centre is excellent. Room was spacious. There was a good choice of healthy food for breakfast and you could get eggs cooked freshly. The gym was clean and had some very good cardio machines. Pool was not too busy and steam room and sauna were very effective. Staff in the health club were friendly and helpful. What made no sense was that this hotel has no free wifi in the bars, lobby or executive lounge. I found this very strange given there is free wifi in Starbuck, Costa, Cafe Nero and Wagamama one minute up the road. There is free internet for gold members in rooms with cable to the router, however this is no use for IPAD. This lack of wifi meant that we did not use any of the hotel's bars or lounges.
Overall this is a good hotel in a great location

Booked this hotel for 1 night for my other half's birthday away, the location of this hotel is prefect as you can't get more central than this. There is also an on site secure car park (which cost £14 overnight). Staff are very helpful and polite. Room is spacious and clean, very comfortable bed and pillows! Air con works well and quiet. We didn't use any of the facilities (swimming pool, gym etc) as we were only staying 1 night (and watching Derren Brown live!!!).

This is only 20 mins walk from Cardiff Bay, don't need a taxi but I would suggest to walk on the left side of rail on your way there as the residential area on the right side of rail line looks doggy.

Breakfast has an excellent selections of food. The only bad thing is that there was a long queue to get seated and a long queue for the fried eggs.

Would stay here again for sure.
