... 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 ...
... in 1903. The village also gave its name to cheddar cheese and is now known for its strawberry growing.
We enjoyed exploring some of the caves together and browsed the quaint food and gift shops in the Cheddar village. For a bit of exercise we climbed the 274 steps of Jacob’s Ladder and then up the tower which gave us beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and reservoir. We enjoyed a hot cheddar and chutney baguette and glass ...

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 ...
Up again at some ungodly hour! Feeling refreshed though after what sleep I had. Early breakfast again and time to tackle the motorway! To Cardiff we go! After dealing with an old SatNav and getting horribly lost, we opted for good old fashioned road signage and drove the motorways to Cardiff. What an experience the motorway was! Cars were flying past me at an ungodly speed and rule of thumb is that if you are not passing, stick right to the left - ...

An Excellent Choice For Cardiff
I am a travel agent who spent 2 nights at this hotel in October 2005. Excellent location, just 1 block from Cardiff Castle, several restaurants, shopping, and several sights. Front desk staff were very friendly, recommending several restaurants for meals. Room was large with excellent beds, and clean, modern bathroom. Internet access in room. Morning breakfast buffet was included and had hot and cold choices. Very good selection and tasty. Lobby is modern with lovely fireplaces. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Cardiff.
I usually stay at the Hilton when in Cardiff, but was peeved that their expensive rate didn't include breakfast.
Just got home from a FANTASTIC stay at the Park Plaza in Cardiff. I've never really heard of the chain before, but I'll DEFINITELY be staying with them again!
Had booked a room for the Park Plaza for the night of the U2 concert in Cardiff - it was the only place available.
Great, city centre hotel
Good room, restaurant & staff and fantastic central location. We did have a room at the front, which didn't suffer from any noise from the bars (although it was a Monday night). The photos of the hotel and rooms are representative. While the car park is a multi-storey across the road, it seems secure, as it is closed during the night. Our car parking ticket was validated for free.
We booked with a "Cardiff Delight" package, which was good value for money (room, inc. dinner & breafast, and champagne & strawberries on arrival). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to friends & colleagues. I'd like to go back to see what the gym & pool look like - perhaps someone could comment if they have seen it
Great hotel, outstanding food!!!
I stayed at this hotel last weekend and have to say the standard of rooms and service is excellent, and comparable to any top hotel. I also work in Cardiff and have eaten lunch at the restaurant bar on several occasions. The food is the real selling point of this hotel in my opinion. Lunches are superb with great dishes that you won't find anywhere else in Cardiff. Evening meal is also superb. No pretentious food here, just top quality ingredients. Leaves other so called good restaurants in Cardiff way behind in quality and standard.
Really nice hotel in Cardiff
I have stayed in some expensive but terrible hotels in UK cities.
Park Plaza was very friendly - the front desk helped out when I needed to book a meeting room at short notice - and the hotel was very comfortable.
Food was good, rooms were very comfortable - modern, light, a bit minimalist but good. Bathrooms not huge but nicely done - very modern. Comfortable beds. No question that I would return when I am next in Cardiff.
Price was reasonable too - £79 per night (maybe a late booking deal).
The Park Plaza is a brand new hotel (opened February 2005) located close to the city centre so is ideally placed for High Street shopping, Cardiff Castle, the National Museum of Wales, the New Theatre and Cardiff's lively night life. It has about 130 rooms and these, and hotel in general, have quality fittings and furnishings. The building started life as Mid Glamorganshire's Council offices and certainly looks like an office block from the outside.
