Giving false information on your web page.
I booked this hotel room due do the webpage informing me that the rooms supplied a bath/shower as I find after a long drive I need a bath to unlock my joints. When I arrived I was informed by reception that my room only had a shower and no bath. I said to the member of staff that I needed a bath and was informed that they have no baths in any room in this hotel. So I double checked your webpage so either you giving out false information or the staff member just lied to me. As I had just arrived at 10 pm I was forced to take the room, I was awake all night in pain in my joints as I couldn’t have a bath, please look into this as I bet that I’m not the first person this as happed to. Also I must inform you that the free breakfast was rubbish on of the worst I’ve ever had. First the plate they give you is only a side plate, the bacon looked very strange and smelled and the sausages where all burned. The eggs where ok but only available scrambled egg no fried or pouched eggs. Not very good I tied a little bit of the food and spent most of the day with a upset stomach and in the toilet. I’ve been to a lot of hotels over the years and this is very poor I would never go back to this hotel every again. P.s just to put the icing on the cake, the staff started cleaning the room next to me at 11.30 pm which was very load once the vacuum was put on for 20 mins.

Poor 2.0
Please ensure first if the A/C is working in room before you book a room. I was with my two children and room was sofocated. After complaining few time they managed to moved me into different room, for first few hours room was okay but after that heat was coming from the A/c, luckily I was staying for only one night, I will try not to come this one as I am member of iHg. Toilet was stink like anything, do not know why they let down customer like that. Manager was very helpful though and admitted that there was a issue with the cooling in particular these room, so why they didn’t inform me before hand they just waited so if I complain then will do some action. Please fix the cooling in that hotel or atleast tell the trusty that it’s not working so I can go somewhere else. I had to leave early in the morning and didn’t bother to stay till check out as I was hot. Hope they will do some action.

Poor 2.0
Some of the staff were scruffy and untidy, hair all over the place & uniforms dirty & not fitting properly. However breakfast was the worse part of my stay & was just horrendous. The scrambled egg was tasteless the sausages were under cooked & all of it was cold by the time I got to sit down. Staff had said that they were expected to man reception & do breakfast. I was a single mum staying on my own. There were no tables free to sit my daughter at & all tables were covered in dirty plates & food. I had to try & get mine & my daughter food & drinks with no trays to put anything on & clean my own table off. It was like pigs at feeding time. People pushing & leaning over you to get things, I was pushed out of the way & even approached by a man & women & accused of pushing there daughter & felt very intimidated. It was without a shadow of doubt the most stressful, uncomfortable & disgusting places that I've ever had to eat breakfast at & wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Good 6.0
You get what you pay for - Fantastic location.
Fantastic location, 10 minutes walk to Porthkerry Park, which has amazing views and a pebble beach! Lovely cafe and play area for the children. Also next to the airport which is lovely for the kids to see the aeroplanes landing. The hotel was extremely basic, same beans/toast/eggs for breakfast each day with a selection of drinks. I know it was a budget 3* hotel but the cleanliness was not there, we didn’t get daily housekeeping, the bathroom was disgusting with the plug hole of the shower filled and blocked with hair/dirt, which meant that when you showered the disgusting water would pile up and not drain. we had to ask for clean towels as the dirty ones were not changed. Other than that, the staff are fantastic! Very friendly, I would love to return again should the general hygiene of the rooms be sorted. Thank you

Very good 8.0
Hotel room was clean and the location was perfect - within walking distance of Cardiff airport - and we heard no noise, either from aircraft or otherwise. However, despite paying (a very reasonable rate) for 3 days parking while for our trip away) we were told that we’d have to move the car from their paved parking to their gravel parking lot. This wouldn’t have been an issue except there was no parking available on the gravel lot. I thought it was an inconvenience to be told to go back a check for spaces later that night or first thing in the morning to move the car. As it happened, there never was a free space on the gravel, so my car remained on the paved space. Furthermore, we booked in for an early morning shuttle to the departures terminal and somehow we were missed off the list. The following morning we had to wait for the shuttle to go and return because it was full and our names were not on the list. Fortunately it was a quick turn-around as the terminal is so close. All in all, the room/location were great, but there were mistakes made at check-in.
