Afternoon Tea for Two

... we were too late. So instead we wandered around the castle gardens and eventually made it back to the city center. This is the first time we have been in a city during the weekend and boy is it busy!! There is an international motor cross competition on this weekend as well as a food festival at Cardiff bay, so needless to say there are tons of people. We ...

Left Plymouth this morning for Glastonbury the site of the rock music festival, whilst a bit alternative it is a pretty little village, old buildings etc. Then drove through green English rolling countryside to Bath. Toured the famous Roman baths ( with a few thousand tourists) _ it is however a classic roman site and another attractive English city. Finally crossed the Severn into Wales and spent night at ...

... It was wonderful to walk through the displays admiring the intricacy of the work. The international artists are professional sculptors and carvers.

After checking out the festival we headed to our accommodation near Bristol Airport.



Today we caught up with Jane and Mike Sheldon, friends from Port Macquarie who are visiting family in the Somerset area. Mid-morning Jane and Mike arrived at our hotel by car to guide us to ...

Food, Glorious Food

If there is one thing I like more than my new found idea to travel the world, it's food. My friend Penny runs a baking blog (check her out http://cakesfromwonderland.blogspot.co. uk/) and I spend most of my uni days stealing, I mean taste-checking, her creations.

Adding to this one of the things I hate is that people from the UK automatically think that there is more to see abroad than on our own doorsteps. THIS ...

    Salangers Restaurant

    from

    Four of us decided to dine out at Salangers this week, we arrived early so decided to have a drink in the bar, my partner went to inform them we had arrived - he went to the desk where the manager ignored him for a good five minutes whilst he first dealt with paperwork, then left the desk twice, not once engaging eye contact or acknowledging my partner.

    Nice hotel but very busy

    from

    We stayed in this hotel recently, and after staying in the very stylish Park Plaza this felt a little more average.

    Excellent stay

    from

    I chose to stay at the Village hotel in Cardiff as I was familiar with a Village hotel in my home town. I was not disappointed with the Cardiff version!

    My room was very clean, the bathroom had a decent shower and the bed was comfortable enough.

    I ate at the Salingers restaurant and had a lovely two course meal for just under 6!(before 7pm weekdays I think). The restaurant was very tastefully decorated and had a nice atmosphere. Breakfast was also very nice with hot and cold options.

    The front desk were extremely friendly and helpful.

    The only downside with this hotel is that it is a fair distance from Cardiff town centre and therefore may be more suited to business travellers rather than someone looking for a weekend break in Cardiff.

    Great Value !

    from

    My wife and I stayed at Village Hotel Cardiff for one night when we were attending a function nearby.

    Our accomodation was very clean and comfortable. We only had breakfast which was very good but I can't comment on evening meals.

    Its about a 10 taxi ride out of the city centre (and about a 15 ride from the airport) but car parking at the hotel seemed plentiful and easy.

    The main attraction however about this hotel is value for money - we paid 56 for the double room including breakfast which I considered excellent value for this quality of accomodation.

    Like a previous reviewer, I thought the pool facilities etc looked great but didn't have time to use them as I was only staying for one night

    Best cup final accommodation in Cardiff

    from

    Just returned from a 2 night stay here, before the Carling Cup final.

    Great Holiday

    from

    I have been on holiday to the village a few times and I will keep visiting it. It's a great hotel

    Good Value for a relaxing weekend

    from

    This must have been around my sixth visit to the Village in Cardiff and I have enjoyed every visit. There were 12 in our party and we had an excellent rate (the Village offers some brilliant deals so always ask before paying the 'set' rate).

    Very relaxing

    from

    I stayed in this hotel on business but found it much better than other hotels of a similar cost. The leisure and pool facilities were wonderful and a great way of relaxing at the end of the day. With all the sauna, massage etc facilities you could easily spend a whole day here and all of this is free to hotel guests.

    The restaurant does a 2 course early bird menu for 5.95 week days and 6.95 at weekends. This was excellent value and very filling. The salad bar is great with very fresh produce.

    All in all a great hotel.

    Average accomodation - terrible food

    from

    Stayed May 2005. A disappointing experience. Room was very small, no in room safe and unimpressive view of the roof of adjoining building (all rooms from the back of the hotel overlook this roof) - poor decor and shabby feel to it.

    Amazing

    from

    This hotel has it all, a fabulous swimming pool and gym, the leisure centre as a whole was wonderful. The food was top quality, and the room and hotel were spotless clean. The staff were also very friendly and helpful. The location is a bit out of town but i would highly reccommend this as the city centre is only a 15/20 minute trip away by train.
