Our second attempt to visit Cardiff proved much more successful. After taking the correct exit on the roundabout, we were finally on our way to the city that will be our new home for the next few years. Having spent the last 12 months trying to envisage what our new life would be like – where would we live, what was the town like, will we …
Musical Room Hoping
Having a weekend holiday in Wales. Decided to use some of our hotel points and have a free weekend at the Hilton in Cardiff. We had hoped to take the Doctor Who tour over here but they aren't running it again until Feb. We did walk around the town after getting here and found quite a nice big shopping area, some cool …
Coracles & Fishing - Fractured Tales
Visited St. Fagan's today which is a collection of Welsh homes and barns, churches, and shops, and more all gathered together at St. Fagan’s to create an open air museum that is delightful and informative and fun. We visited in late January which is admittedly not the best time of year as …
A quick catch up while I've got wifi. Caught the stena ferry over to Fishguard in Wales. Very smooth ride. I can recommend the ferries - they are really enjoyable, reasonably quick and the processing at check in is so much easier than airports. Jumped on a train for Cardiff. Not the prettiest of cities, but it has it's own character. They love …

Our stay at the Hilton on Valentines Day was a pleasure. The staff were very nice, especially with one broken chair and a few room service calls. The breakfast in the conservatory was one of the best buffets I have had. The only problem was that our bed was on rollers, with no way of stopping them rolling around the room which was fairly annoying.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Cardiff
Superb location and very nice rooms
I've stayed at this hotel on at least 10 occasions, its perfect for a night out in cardiff. The location is within easy walking distance from the majority of the bars and resturants in the city centre. I've always had a superb room, clean, and have found the staff attentive and helpful. Valet parking is ?10 per night. I agree that the front of the hotel can become grid-locked at peak times but have never had any problems with damage.
My wife and I stayed at the hotel last weekend. We arrived at 1415 hrs (having been told that check in was 1400). Upon arrival it was traffic chaos and there was no where to park our car. We left it on the pavement and went into the hotel for help. A helpful member of staff came out and we gave him our keys as he offered to park it for us in the hotel car park. We were charged £10 for this service. When we got to the front desk, we found out that our room wasn't ready and it was suggested that we went shoppping in town and came back in an hour. Upon our return, the room was ready and in fairness, it was large, clean and well furnished. We were not however asked about dinner reservations, newspaper or wake up call. There were only two problems with the room.
I spent a very enjoyable evening there with Keith - the staff were only to happy to help us at the bar but the cost was somewhat high even for a Hilton.
Reviews of the Cardiff Hilton have been mixed, if mostly positive, so
Loved the rubbish
This hotel was a disgrace, there was rubbish everywhere, the staff were sooo rude and the resturant was pathetic! The food was disgusting and was cold...the soup was not fresh and was staright from a can, i seen with my own eyes! the room was even worse, the two lamps in the room didnt work and the shower was broken. The only good point was when i left, even my rental car which i left i the hotel carpark was dented...THANKS CARDIFF
Cardiff Hilton-Best Ever!
Staff were amazing!! Best hilton ive sayed in by far! If visiting wales again, would sure to go there again! Thankyou hilton Cardiff!
We stay at Hiltons all over the UK, and this one is sure the best of the crop! Stay on the executive floor, its worth the extra money. Book in here, go shopping and experience a great city!
Stayed here a few times now when in the area. Although the St. Davids hotel on the Bay is better, I stay here for the central location.
Overal the hotel is good. No real complaints. Good executive lounge however the continental breakfast offered is poor.
Standard rooms are bigger than executive rooms and are very 4 star - infact, this is the most 4-star hotel ive stayed in - and its actualy a 5 star. Having said that, The Angel hotel is more a 3* but is actualy a 4*.
I have stayed in a executive suite before which was rubbish, a standard room which was standard Hilton and an executive room which was small.
N.B. The shower tray looks as if it is going to flood as it fills with water; however, the hotel told me this is what it does and it doesn't flood.
Cardiff Hilton the Best
I have stayed twice at the Cardiff Hilton in the during Feb & Mar 2003I can not praise the rooms & staff highly enough.Swimming was nice & the good weel cooked & prepared.Well worth the little extra price compared to other hotels in the area
A great place to stay
I stayed at this hotel in the summer of 2000. It was beautiful. If I'm ever back in Wales, I'll definately stay at this hotel.
