Beautiful building but complete let down, definitely wouldn’t rebook Stayed a Saturday night. Children playing in the reception and corridors. Get back at 11pm from a meal and the reception was full of 13/15 yr olds left to own devices. Had a ground floor adjoining room and could hear the whole conversation of next door and every time they entered as were in and out early hours the door rattled. Mentioned at reception but only alternative was another adjoining room as the hotel is booked out Not the standard expected

Had a two day break at this hotel and thought it’s not quite 4*. The room we had showed sign’s of repairs on walls ,filler but no paint ,and in the bathroom the only place to put a towel was on the floor or stretch above your head to a rail. The staff at breakfast and dinner were great but the menu was on 4A sheet of paper sealed inside a plastic cover, like a cafe, and the same everyday. The writing so small it was hard to read even with glasses. This could be a nice 4* but some thought needed

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review of your recent stay with us. I am really grateful for your comments and feedback, I will pass these on to the Maintenance and Food & Beverage team so that we can look at improving these. I hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards Barnaby Kean General Manager

Flooded Bathroom

I had booked 4 x twin rooms with you, staying here as an annual Xmas getaway. We usually stay at Mercure Cardiff Holland House. Unfortunately we had an issue with one of the bathrooms which flooded quite badly due to a blocked plug hole. Despite calling reception no one attended in a timely manner which meant the other party in the room was unable to use the bathroom facilities before attending our evening out. Clothes and shoes also left on the floor prior to the shower were also soaked with water and soap. The issue was resolved when we arrived back to our rooms at 1am but this was not satisfactory and I expect to be able to use a fully functioning bathroom when booking a hotel room

Restorative and seasonal.
