Good hotel some staff abrasive, not eco friendly
The hotel is good, the morning Restaurant Supervisor is abrasive and arrogant. The air conditioner was not working daily even though Maintenance had been to look at it. The cleaner keeps disposing of the toiletries even though there were not empty, not very eco friendly

Golfing around Cardiff and the Valleys
Used as a base for a 2 day golf trip. It was convenient, clean and the staff were friendly. The room was excellent. The bar area and breakfast were good. A short walk to Cardiff Bay where there were many restaurants.
