Savettanun P. Families with older children Thailand, September 13, 2013
Nice and quiet place to stay

Easy to reach, Quick checking in-out, Helpful staff
I would recommend this hotel, it performs to its chain standard format. The car park is ample but at night time may be a bit jammed. It's 4 pounds per day and reasonable. Room is spacey and clean and well-equipped. Staff is helpful. Atmosphere is rather quiet and business-like. Location is 10mins walk to city center and it's near enough to stroll. On overall, it's great!

nice and comfortable

clean and big room, quiet environment
The hotel is 10min walk from Cardiff Centre. Not to say close but not too far. But I do spend some time to look for the hotel, so it's actually very tiring. But after that I found that actually there is a short cut to Cardiff Centre. So everything become easy then. The hotel room is very spacious. The room is clean. At night, it is very quiet, so I can enjoy a good night sleep. There is not much facility in the hotel.

Staff, Room cleanliness, Comfortable room
The location was very poor unfortunately. The Hotel is difficult to get to and it is not in the centre and I would sincerely suggest travelers choose another hotel. Especially if you have heavy suitcases. Otherwise the hotel is the usual Mercure standard which is comfortable and clean.

Hotel by freeway in VW dealership

Big room
Beware if you are looking for a central hotel, do not have a car - this hotel is a good 15 minutes walk from center of town with no shops at all around. It is by a major roundabout, near a freeway and inside a VW dealership. Room was quite OK - big and reasonably modern and clean. Staff OK, some helpful though others a bit unfriendly. Breakfast was not included, so cannor comment on food.

Felix C. Business travelers Canada, October 23, 2012
Great value but lack luxuries typical for Mecure

Huge functional bedroom, large bathroom, efficient front desk services.
Reasonably clean & contemporary styled, our room is perfectly functional for business travellers. I've booked a family room to share between myself and my colleague which I believe is much larger(At least 25%) than other room types in this hotel @ a very reasonable rate(Below GBP43 per nite). It's great value I admit. Now, things that this Mercure can possibly improve on: 1) Get rid of the GBP3 per nite parking charge. For hotels located inside city/commerce centers or tourist/entertainment areas, parking charge is reasonable. This Mercure is nowhere near such places. 2) Upgrade/modernize the appearance of the lobby and dining area(e.g. Those awful/un-inviting looking sofas and seats and poor lighting....I hate dark lobbies). Frankly, the current appearance/comfort level may be acceptable for lower grade hotel chains such as etaps, ibis or DaysInn but is a bit of an insult to the Mercure brand. 3) Improve the shower in the bathroom. If U get the impression fm Mercure's website that the shower head is the so-called power-shower variety, U'll be disappointed. Flow rate is too slow and definitely not comparable with say, a typical Holiday Inn Express.

Great location.

Walking distance to City Centre.
Great room. Hotel only 5 minute walk to city. Plenty of choice of restuarants in the city. Ample car parking facilities if you have a car. WiFi in the lobby if you need to use it. But not in your rooms.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Guided walking your a must.
