2 Night Shopping Trip in Cardiff
Cardiff Central train station is literally around the corner and you can access the Hotel from its back entrance if coming from this direction. The Hotel does not have a grand entrance and the Reception is accessed via a small lift up to the 2nd Floor.
The check in lady was nice enough and gave clear instructions to my room, internet access and check out time. Staff were always helpful.
My room was 313 on the 3rd floor. You access it with a keyless fob - like a contactless card. My immediate impression of the room was of space and light, modern and minimalist. It is an old building so the windows are huge Victorian ones - beautiful! I had a large comfortable bed with crisp white linen, lovely big shower with complimentary soap, shampoo and shower gel. There is air con in the room which you can switch off and open the window instead if you prefer. There is a TV - I did not use this. There was tea/coffee. An iron, and ironing board and a hairdryer. Best of all for all you girls out there - there was a nice full length mirror. There was also a dressing table and ample storage - should you wish to unpack. I slept soundly for the 2 nights even though the location is bang in the centre of Cardiff.
I did not eat here as it is only 3 star rated in terms of food safety and you are so close to a multitude of restaurants, there hardly seems any point! The shopping mall is huge and just so much choice and you are literally right in the centre of it.
