Free Wi-Fi is usually standard, although some places may ask for a small connectivity fee to prevent abuse of their service
Parking is often a tricky issue in busy cities, and Cardiff is no different. However, many hotels have either internal parking structures in their lower floors, or reciprocal agreements with nearby car parks, so do be sure to ask when placing your booking. Some, more rural, hotels are able to offer generous free parking on the premises.
Cardiff is a beautiful city, the capital of Wales and a popular destination with people who want to know more about the nation and the city, people who are fervent rugby fans, and those looking to break into show business via the strong media and broadcasting presence to be found in the city. Honeymooners, too, like to come to this city by the sea and spend long happy hours, hand in hand, as they explore the wonders of Cardiff. No matter who you are, you will find something to please you in the city.
Our hotels range from the highest end five-stay luxury hotels to more practical homely comfort with the budget friendly three-star offerings. No matter who you are and your reasons for visiting Cardiff, you will find a hotel room that matches your budget and your needs.
The city has a pleasant temperate climate, and visitors will enjoy being out of doors in most seasons, save when it is raining! Your clothing should be mid-range – lighter in summer and warmer in winter, and preferably in layers, so you can adapt your outfit with the changes of weather.
Otherwise, bring clothing appropriate to your plans: if you will be attending a high-class dinner, your best evening clothes are a must, but if you are going to be hiking around, enjoying the wonders of the Welsh outdoors, you will do better with a backpack and some sturdy hiking boots or walking shoes.
