Caerdydd as the locals call it...

A travel blog entry by wernicki


Boy! I thought the Polish language was challenging with the lack of vowels, but Welsh appears to be in the same league. You can tell you are in Wales as all the signs are in both English and Welsh. The language seems intimidating to the reader but is relatively easy on the ear, unfortunately it is nothing like any of the Germanic, Romance or Slavic …

So... officer what IS the legal limit for driving?

Sunday we drove to Cardiff and stayed at the Village hotel. It is a pretty ritzy joint it has a huge recreation center and full pool. Monday morning we had a chance to visit Neath and the surrounding burough for our health job shadowing experience. Enter near death experience. While on the shoddy small tour bus, driving on clifs with a driver that …

Cardiff hotel Park Plaza

A travel blog entry by ehattabaugh


Today was basically a travel day, after 1 bus, 2 trains, a taxi and 5 1/2 hours travel, I have arrived in Wales. I will meet my host at the hospital in the morning, and stay with her Tuesday and Wednesday, travel home Thursday. It is harder to understand the Welsh accent, Cardiff seems to be a fairly modern city. I visited this city about 24 years ago, but I don't see anything familiar. ...

Breaking free from the city!!!!

A travel blog entry by mezzas


... Turns out not even driving in the country is simple and speedy in the UK. But the scenery is like something from a painting and Bath has to be seen to be believed. Got to Bath. Eventually. Had a tour of the Roman baths. Once again uber old. There's so much history here. It's page bit mind boggling for a couple from Oz. Got moving again and this time had our noses pointed for ...

Stonehenge and Bath

... of the best preserved ancient bath and temple complex in Northern Europe. This is the only thermal springs in the UK emerging from deep underground. We were shown all stages of the hot spring process, life as it was in the day and info regarding the site via audio headsets. They have built walkways over some of the ancient stone areas and other areas are closed off via viewing perspex. Once again I ...

    Salangers Restaurant


    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


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

    Excellent stay


    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 !


    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


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

    Great Holiday


    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


    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


    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


    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.



    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.
