    I think the location is fantastic when travelling from the m$ as is its close proximity to Cardiff for leisure. The staff are always extremely friendly and helpful and the bar off the reception area is very cool in design, we particularly enloy the Vettriano artwork.

    I think the standard of food could be greatly improved - we choose not to eat at the hotel

    All staff were friendly and knowledgeable (reception,valet, housekeeping, spa) Any problems were dealt with immediately and efficiently All facitilites on one site - eating, accommodation and activities

    Sat Nav does not direct you to the front entrance, staff are aware of this so perhaps a note could be made on their website about how to find them using Sat Nav Internet was an additional charge per day. I think this should have been included for people who are paying the full rate

    It has very spacious rooms and surroundings. It was also pleasing to see a hotel catering for sports which gave the feeling that every guest seemed to have a plan rather than bimbling aimlessly.

    My only criticism was that the shower door in Room 122 was not fitted correctly. It had come loose from the top fixing. As somebody who stays in hotels most weeks, I can't believe that this hadn't been reported before, if it had it should have been sorted by Maintenance. A small observation but one that could leave a lasting impression on some guests. The evening staff did try to fix it but weren't successful.

    The staff were friendly in all departments, The food is very good and reasonably priced, its in a good location away from the hustle and bustle! Will go back and would recommend to friends and family!

  • Older travelers

    Its location and, in better weather, access to the golf courses.

    We were very disappointed that the restaurant was not open. The grill served what we would describe as "mediocre pub grub".

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    very difficult to find the room, and breakfast was not included in the price

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The position and the aervice from the staff

    Because it was St valentine's weekend we could not book the restaurant at a convenient time for the children.

  • Single
    10.0

    Gym facilities very good, great to have access to the exercise classes too. Room very large and comfortable.

    Breakfast was good, but overpriced in my opinon. Would have been nice to have been able to select a continental option only at a reduced rate.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff added to the benefits of location and facilities.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    The best things were the ease of access from the M4, and the location generally which I thought very pleasant.

    I did not enjoy being asked to vacate our table in the restaurant bar area before 11 pm on Saturday evening.

    We visited the Vale resort for a relaxing weekend away but due to the amount of youngsters in and around the health club it made our experience quite uncomfortable. There were young teenagers bombing in and out of the pool without any care for other users of the pool. On one occasion one of the youngsters threw a swimming float at his friend and hit a young baby who was with her partents at the pool. The sauna and steem rooms were extreemly busy to the extent that there was a cue at one point to enter the sauna. We feel that considering that there was no reduction in the cost of the stay within the times of the school holidays, nothing was done to set a time table to limit the uncomfort of our experience. It was also a little strange for the childrens facility off the bar area to be open so late in to the evening as there were still toddlers running around the bar area after 10 pm at night. All in all the food was extremly good, the staff were friendly but the experience was hindered by the whole stay

  • Older travelers

    Loved the spa and fittnes rooms, the grounds for walking

  • Family with children

    Excellent food; friendly staff and good location.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Excellent standards of service and the room and facilities were above average. The bed was the best ever! Could not fault much. Staff very helpful. Smart colour schemes, clean, and impressively large. Seemed lots of choice of outlets. Golf nearby was the best and best valued course we have played.

    F&B standards not bad but not up to the rest.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Excllent setting. Great facilities. Not too far from Cardiff if you want to shop. A golfer paradise
