Well, its arrived - the day I go to India.
My house resembles Primark on sale day and my ar$e and elbow are getting mixed up !
My stomach is like a washing machine and my mind all over the place. I am flitting from thinking ''Bring it on, I wanna go backpacking '' to ''What the hell are you ...
... the village if they are staying in one of the accommodation facilities so traffic is limited. We also took the opportunity to go to some of the towns on the Northern coast of Cornwall, Padstow, where Rick Stein has his famous Seafood restaurant and Port Isaac where the Doc Martin series was filmed. Each was beautiful in their own right although definitely more ...
So back last year I decided that I would do something funky whilst travelling around the USA, as I'm visiting 48 states in 80 days I thought it would be a good idea to document each state with a well known landmark and have something other than me in each picture. So I introduce to you LegoEm! She even has her own camera. So the countdown till the adventure begins! 61 days and ...
... The fourth and fifth battles occurred during 1918. British and Commonwealth soldiers often passed through the Menenpoort on their way to the front lines with some 300,000 of them being killed in the Ypres Salient. Of these, 90,000 of these soldiers have no known graves. The carved limestone lions adorning the original gate were damaged by shellfire, and were donated to the Australian War Memorial by the Mayor of Ypres in 1936. They were restored in 1987, and currently reside at ...
... enjoyed ourselves.
After lunch we went to Cefn Mably Farm Park. It was a nice farm park and we saw lots of farm animals such as Goats, Sheep, Pigs, Horses, Ducks, Chickens, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs and many more animals. There was also a nice cafe where we could have a nice cup of tea or coffee and cake. We had a lot fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.
We had a great day first day today in Cardiff and we are looking forward to ...

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.
