About
Description
Who are we? That's a difficult one to answer. That's because we're not the usual city hotel or guest house. In fact, there's nothing remotely 'usual' about us. -We're a dignified Victorian town-house with funky, More fashionable 21st-century accommodation -Our rooms and suites are bold and beautiful -We're setting new standards in Cardiff, Wales's capital city -Our approach is different from the rest -We'll look after your every need (think optional butler service, personal chef and a chauffeured Rolls-Royce) -Or, if you prefer, you can look after yourself (some of our rooms have state-of-the-art kitchens) -Expect the highest levels of service -But we don't do stuffiness - we're relaxed and laid-back when it comes to atmosphere and ambience -We serve afternoon tea the proper, traditional way - then transform ourselves into a trendy piano bar in the evening Less
