The hotel is set on the first and second floor of the building and there are no lifts/elevators to access these floors. Some rooms are over different levels with steps and have low head clearance. Please note when booking that the hotel is therefore not suitable for wheelchair users.

The lounge operates an honesty book for any items taken. Nespresso coffee, Canton loose teas and home-made sherried Welsh cakes are complimentary for all guests.

There are several NCP car parks in close proximity, one of them is opposite the hotel. Parador does not have a preferential rate with the NCP, however, if you personally download the NCP app before arrival with your correct vehicle details, you may be able to access a discounted rate.

If you are booking on the date of an event in the city, such as a rugby match or concert please check the road closures that may affect your journey.

We cannot take responsibility for items left at our property upon departure, however every care will be taken to ensure that these are returned to you as soon as we can. Please note there may be a charge for recorded delivery.

The building was built in the 1700's and sits in the city centre, we've done everything we can to soundproof the rooms, however there may be some street noise from outside. If you're a light sleeper we provide sleep kits in every room.

We're a 5 minute walk from Cardiff central train station and bus station, if you require a taxi we recommend Premier Taxi - 02920 555555.
