Future Inn Cardiff Bay
Travel Blogs from Cardiff
We've said goodbye to St Ives and Cornwall and hello to Cardiff in Wales. It was a great day for driving - our first day of rain - and we're now staying at Cardiff Bay. While we were waiting for our room to be ready, we walked down to the waterfront, where the Millennium Dome and Welsh Parliament (Y Senned) is. The buildings are amazing and if you …

... a bit before calling it a night and heading back to the hostel for some much needed laundry time. Interesting facts: Love spoons are hand carved wooden gifts in the shape of a spoon that are given to loved ones. The different carvings represent different hopes and wishes of the giver and receiver. This is where the term spooning comes from! Afternoon tea is ...
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 ...
Our trip up the western coast today led us to the coastal town of Weston-super-Mare. This holiday destination has a wonderful esplanade at the seashore with a Pirate Adventure land due to open next year, an aquarium and amusement pier and Ferris wheel. While we were there the tide was very low so the horses and wagons were taking passengers along the lower section of the beach.
We were fortunate today to find the annual Sand Sculpture Festival at ...

Nice hotel, but very glad this is the only hotel on our stay. Four of us in the one room for 2 nights is the max, not to mention trying to eat healthy when you have to purchase all meals.

Historical Traveler Reviews Future Inn Cardiff Bay
We booked a King Suite as it was our wedding anniversary, but this was not really necessary as the bedroom itself was very big. It was all very clean and new, but the decor was rather sparse and my husband commented that the living room area was like a BUPA waiting room!!
Future inn cardiff-great value
As per TA recommendation booked this hotel. Booked directly with hotel and got a 2 night deal for £77/double room incl. breakfast. A great deal.
Room (suite) extral large Kig bed and separate lounge (great if you are taking kids) includded in Autumn Break price.
Breakfast was "ordinary" - the standard cooked, with no fresh fruit. Breakfast if taken separately is £9.95 and probably not worth it. Ours was included - so can't complain.
Hotel is new (less than 12 months old) therefore in pristine condition -rooms with great amenities. state of the art flat screen television, CD, internet (free) etc
Would highly recommend and will be returning if in Cardiff again.
Ideal hotel in Cardiff
Booked 3 nights at Future Inn, Cardiff Bay, after seeing good reviews on Tripadvisor, and wasn't disappointed. A fresh new hotel. Room was good size, comfortable, clean, and quiet. Good restaurant, plenty of free parking and a short walk from the sights and restaurants of Cardiff's rejuvenated Bay area, and the new Atlantic Wharf.
I shall certainly use Future Inn again.
My husband and I stayed at the Future Inn for two nights, on a mini city break to Cardiff. We spotted the good reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to book into the Future Inn as a result.
Normally when you enter a 3 star hotel, the reception is quite nice. Then you enter the room and it is exactly what you would expect. Not good, not bad.
Well worth the money
Customer service at The Future Inn Cardiff Bay was the best I have received in the UK for a very long time. We had polite, friendly and efficient service from checking in to checking out. We were greeted with a smile everytime we were served regardless of the queues and the late working hours that were kept by many of the staff (especially the bar & restaurant staff).
The rooms were luxurious and spotlessly clean. The food was delicious with a wide range of options including at breakfast (I'm vegetarian and that usually means just toast).
Many thanks to everyone working at the hotel that weekend, you made all the difference to our stay in Cardiff!!!
Stayed one night at beginning of June in fairly glum weather and it brightened our day because it is a bright spanking new hotel. Surprised to get a room as the Youth Eisteddfod was on at the nearby Millenium Centre. Never heard so many people speaking Welsh at the same time. This resulted in a lively atmosphere in the bar in the evening. You need to be very clear about your instructions for getting there as there is no signage as yet. Our SatNav system almost did the job for us but the last 400 metres was a challenge. You can't miss it when near as it is a tall tower block. This results in interesting views over the regenerated docklands. Reception staff very apologetic and said that local authority had promised signs but not delivered as yet. Rooms are huge with two Queen size beds(very comfy) with all white bed linen with a lovely fluffy light duvet. We got ours for two people with one breakfast (had to pay for the other (£10) at £75 (£85 in total for two at this level of quality is a great bargain). You need to shop around the deal providers. Rooms are standard hotel design but very large and smartly designed. Free internet access at all times - flat screen tv and CD/DVD player. Bathroom spacious with ingenious door arrangement to loo with good range of good quality toiletries. There is a hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Breakfast buffet style - not the most sumptious I have seen but very adequate, well cooked and not greasy. Dining room and bar are as one with very modern decor. Staff helpful but bar staff need cocktail training. Our barman was new and could not rustle up a bloody mary! Plenty of parking. Lots to do nearby. Indoor bowl, multi-plex cinema and masses of restaurants/bars at Mermaid Quay (10 minute walk). The new Welsh Assembly building is a short walk away as well as the new and modernistic Millenium Concert Hall. Straightforward but lengthy walk to old city centre but bus service nearby as well as Cardiff Bay Station 10 minutes away. Any small issues mentioned here are far outweighed by the bundle of plusses but I have tried to set a balanced view. I can thoroughly recommend this very fine hotel.
This is a new hotel and was expecting a few raw edges, but I was pleasantly surprised both by the ease of checking in and the size and comfort of the room and hotel in general.
I recommend the Future Inn Cardiff
really nice hotel to stay at. Best facilities a hotel can offer and the staff make you feel so welcome. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cardiff.
