place during the Georgian time period, and how it was much the place to be seen by the influential and rich. Jane Austin's stories such as "Pride and Prejudice" were often intertwined with this area and the society. As we drove into the city, we drove around the gorgeous architectural buildings associated with the different time periods. She …
Today was our single day in Cardiff, and we probably should have started it earlier, but there was some business to be taken care of first.
I rang JAL, and I've finally sorted my flight home! I'm leaving London December 21st, arriving in Sydney December 23rd. Just in time for Xmas, but I'm hoping no one expects presents *g* I won't be able …
Today we woke early in Conwy, had breakfast, and went to visit the castle.
Of course, we'd gotten up too early, and when we got there, the castle was still closed. So we went and sat down by the water and watched the mud ooze (low tide *G*) till it was open.
It's an amazing old castle, and surprisingly intact. You can climb up the …

Super City Center Hotel
Stayed here for the first time on 28th Jan, I usually stay at one of the 5 star hotels in the city but decided to give this a go. I deal with many hotels as part of my job but was not familiar with this one.
Excellent location for shopping and evening entertainment in the city. My room on 3rd floor had recently been refurbed and was gorgeous. I would definitely stay there again without hesitation.
I have used this hotel since for business and my guests where extremely happy with the hotel as a whole.
Seen better days I'm afraid
I have stayed at Jurys several times over the years, and I must say it has gone down the nick quite a bit. Last time I stayed there, the service was certainly not one would expect from a 4* hotel: poor food, impatient staff, poor service. The hoot of the day was when a number of our party complained that the showers were cold, only to hear the incredible explanation that "Well, the trouble is that there are a lot of Americans staying and they all take showers at the same time" Laugh? I nearly wet myself! This is a 4* hotel? So if you are thinking of staying please do try to organise a rota for the morning shower.
I stayed in this hotel for three nights in November and certainly enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly. Room service was good and was provided with a smile. We had prebooked a cotbed which was promptly delivered on our arrival.
I had the breakfast buffet each morning which was of a good standard. There was certainly alot of choice. The only downfall was having to ask for our tea a couple of times before getting it but then even the best hotels can't deliver perfect service all the time.
So if you have already booked your stay and then gone on to read some of the negative views (as I did prior to going) then you should be pleasantly surprised when you get there.
After reading the reviews below I was a little worried about what I had booked for myself and my partner.
From the pictures on the internet I knew that the foyer was going to be impressive, but I was more curious about the room (No. 512)
To my surprise, I was rather impressed! The rooms were really big and very clean. The bathroom was spotless.
Breakfast was lovely, with more choice than you really needed!
I thought I'd write this review because it seems that most people only write them to complain, never to say how good a hotel was. I would definately stay there again and would recommend it to everyone.
We recently stayed at Jurys for one night, it was the longest night of my life! Everything that could go wrong did! Check in was quick and efficient, but not many smiles from the Receptionists. We then went to the bar and that was the beginning of an onset of problems! It took 25 minutes to place an order at the bar, I think it was the bar mans 1st day on the job, or it appeared to be! Not very efficient, or friendly. To be fair, the food was good. On entering our room, my first impressions were good, it was clean, always a good sign! However, the adjoining door to the next room had not been locked, had we not discovered this, then I hate to think what could've happened. We had requested an executive room, but it appeared to be a standard room that we got.
I stayed at Jurys on the 27th and the 28th. It did not go well. This is a terrible hotel - it is not 4* standard. I am going to write a letter of complaint to the RAC and the AA who award them there rating.
We stayed here from 21-23 May 2004 as we were in Cardiff for the FA Cup Final. When we booked we were told that we could only book for a two night stay (we only really wanted one night) and that the room rate would be £530! Reluctantly we booked a family room for myself, my wife and our 16 year old daughter. On checking in, we found that the people checking in in front of us had booked one night only and had paid £160 per night (as opposed to our £265!) When I questioned this I was told that the policy had changed part way through the booking period. Next we were shown to the worst, dirtiest and shabbiest hotel room I have ever encountered. The third bed we had been promised was a dirty sofa bed and the double bed in the room appeared to fold up into wall! Staff admitted that it "wasn't the best room" and "upgraded" us to a small double. They then produced the most ridiculous rollaway bed for our daughter (it was carried into the room under the arm of a tiny Thai chambermaid) which I wouldn't have allowed our dog to sleep on. Eventually, after many complaints we were given a full size single bed which just about squeezed into the room, leaving us no room at all to move about. None of the advertised benefits of the "executive" room were made available to us (fruit, turndown, bathrobes etc) so it was obvious that we had been given this room under sufferance. Incidentally, this room was also dirty and the bathroom smelt stale and unclean. We opted to eat in the hotel since Cardiff was very busy with football fans. Big mistake! We sat down to be told that they were not offering the A La Carte menu that evening as they were so busy - there were two tables occupied at the time, ours and another table of three. Again, after we complained that we hadn't been told this when we booked the table, they relented and allowed us to order from the A La Carte menu. I wish they hadn't. The meal was appalling. Breakfast the next day was not much better. The next night we took food in to our room rather than risk another meal in the restaurant. The staff tried their best but were agreeing with us in all our complaints! How this hotel has a four star rating is beyond me. It seems that whilst football finals are held in this city, Jurys Hotel will get away with profiteering. Do not allow yourselves to be conned.
Dissapointed by the jurys
Having seen the pictures on the internet, we were really dissapointed with the hotel. The public rooms are fine but the actual rooms are in need of a real over hall to bring them to the same level of other 4* hotels. The bathroom was particuarly bad. I stay in a lot of 4* hotel in various parts of the world and this was deffinately not up to scratch.
What you expect
having recently stayed at this hotel Sept 2003. i felt the 4 star rating given to this hotel was slightly to high as in order to get 4 star quality in your room you have to pay for all the things you have come to expect i.e. the rooms are small and they are basic and you have to ask for an expensive up grade to get things like shampoo, mini bar,etc so i felt i got 2 star quality at 4 star prices
