Room was comfortable, refreshments provided in fridge. Shower pressure was not great but room clean. It is a training hotel so staff learning.

Paradise within Paradise!
This was my husband and my second time staying at the Cardiff. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the staff is always pleasant and helpful, and the onsite, as well as, local amenities are excellent.
