    We would love to go back next year. The bed was comfortable. Having access to the pool was great. Cardiff Bay neighbourhood was worth exploring. Plus, we were 20 mins by foot from mermaid quay.

    Comfortable bed. Air-conditioned room.

    It was a ideal location for exploring cardiff bay as well as the rest of cardiff, easy acces to main roads. Pleasant dining room with spacious windows. . The staff were friendly and very helpful, an enjoyable stay.

    The choice at breakfast was a bit limited in respect of cereals and fruit. Did not need an ironing board it took up valuable space in the wardrobe

    The rooms were quiet and spacious. The bathroom contained a good shower.

    We checked into a double room to find we had only been given one set of towels and had to return to reception to ask for an additional set. These were not provided straight away so we could not both shower before going out that evening. We also found there was a massive crack in one of the mugs - we left a note the next morning for housekeeping identifying this and the mug was taken away but not replaced! Again we had to go down to reception to ask for a replacement. The reception staff that evening (25.06.11) were rude and did not take my complaint seriously, laughing about it. The room was also incredibly stuffy and hot as the air conditioning does not have a setting below 19 degrees. I have stayed at Futures several times and throroughly enjoyed my stay but unfortunately I will not be staying here again - too many unsatisfactory points for such an expensive hotel.

    First room smelled of smoke and keycard didn't work. Room was changed but key card still didn't work. Internet keypad didn't work - advised reception and they said they would change the keypad. Returned later and this still hadn't been done - had to ask again. Tables in bar hadn't been wiped clean. Overly expensive for average hotel
