Afternoon Tea for Two

A travel blog entry by jsafnuk

Today we left the home of the Beatles behind and traveled onto Cardiff. We made our first successful train transfer and made it here with no difficulties. Once in the city we checked in and began exploring. We decided to go for a traditional English afternoon tea at Pettigrew Tea Rooms. It was delicious! We had a choice of three sandwiches, tea, and a slice of ...

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 ...

... were narrow and led us up and down the mountain terrain. Bad luck for the people there for a weekend of rock or mountain climbing, or bush walking. Out trip to Pembroke Castle took 4 hours, a little longer than anticipated due to the poor conditions. We did our usual Castle tour, looked at the displays set up and then had our usual coffee stop at their cafe. Then off to Cardiff our stop for tonight. This was a good 2 hour trip, however the ...

Bristol also boasts a magnificent cathedral, which is open to the public and is set in a public park which on this sunshine-y day was filled with live music and spontaneous jugglers.The inside of the cathedral will take your breath away, the organ reaches high into the heavens and the mini graveyard is ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel and Spa

    What a surprise...

    from

    We have now used this hotel on a number of occasions and on each have been surprised by the high standards of what is austensively a 4 star hotel. The dining experience is especially worthy of note and the view from the rooms second to none in central Cardiff. We attended a wedding exhibition there recently and the main function room was vast.

    Hotel is top banana!

    from

    Fabulous beds, fabulous views and first class service with a smile - nothing was too much trouble! Excellent disabled facilities and able to book in at 11am and leave 12 midday the following morning - you don't often get that! Restaurant was very good also. A top hotel!

    Best Rooms In Cardiff....

    from

    ....By Far! The hotel used to be an anonymous office block, but thanks to a lot of money and imagination has been turned into a superbly appointed modern style hotel, with the biggest and best rooms on offer in the whole of Cardiff. Great views across the Bristol Channel from the south side, with views up to the north just as interesting from the higher levels.

    Simply the best hotel we have ever stayed in!!

    from

    My husband and I have stayed in some fantastic 4 and 5* hotels all over the world and found that this hotel was quite simply the best we had ever stayed in!

    Great Rooms

    from

    The hotel is very nice, clean and lovely. There is a brilliant swimming pool with steam and sauna room. The Breakfast is delicious.

    Great Hotel

    from

    I stayed at Holland House on the 7th August 2004. As i had travelled up from London to watch the football the following day. Arriving in Cardiff earlier than expected i thought i would try and check in early.... to my surprise this was not a problem although it was a good few hours earlier than the "normal" check in time.

    If the manchester utd football team can stay here so can I

    from

    I visited the hotel this weekend ready for the football. The lobby is beautiful.Rooms are very spacious and very modern in decoration and the views across Cardiff are superb. It is literally across the road from the shops, and bars etc are all within a 5 min walk. It has everything you would expect from a hotel of that standard and imagine my surprise when I arrived to find the Manchester Utd football team arrive for an overnight stay.

    I stay in many 4-5* hotels throughout the UK on a regular basis and this so far is one of the best.

    What a nice suprise!

    from

    I remember when Holland Hiuse was an office block, so when I had to attend a business meeting in Cardiff and was booked into this hotel at a very good rate, I wasn't expecting much.

    So-So

    from

    Four-star rating is ambitious. The lobby stank of cigarette smoke, the dining room is difficult to locate, the car park is very expensive. The rooms are smart, large and well-decorated, the bar is pleasant and the pool facilities good. I think this hotel will start looking rather down-at-heel within a year or two.

    Top Marks for Service, Quality and Facilities!

    from

    The three nights we spent at Holland House in May 2004 were thoroughly enjoyable. We had anticipated some teething problems given that the hotel had only been open for 1 month...but there were none. The staff were friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to be helpful, the central location is good, the rooms are very tastefully decorated (funky cherry wood interior complete with wide screen TV and superb views of the city) and all the facilities were wonderful. Room service was prompt and polite. Our meal in the restaurant was superb and the leisure facilities were very good. I'd definitely stay here again if in Cardiff and can thoroughly recommend it.
