When it comes to staying overnight in Wales, you are absolutely spoilt for choice. We have everything on our doorstep here in Wales, be it stunning coastline and awe-inspiring mountains to independent markets and bustling towns; stunning tourist spots and interesting people to talk to.
Whether you’re holidaying with the kids, having a romantic trip away with your partner, celebrating a special birthday or partying with the lads, the Welsh capital is the place to visit.
And, indeed, our very own Exchange Hotel has been named as one of the 50 best hotels in Wales.
Here’s what Wales Online had to say about us:
The 50 Best Hotels in Wales
“Based in the former Coal Exchange in Cardiff Bay, this historic building – formerly the hub of trading within the coal industry and, according to tradition, the place where the world’s first £1m cheque was signed – has been transformed into a luxury hotel.
The hotel features luxurious and comfortable rooms – one is named after Dame Shirley Bassey – which are accessed by lifts and decorated simply but with a glamourous twist.
The R.P Culley & Co bar and restaurant is inspired by the local philanthropist who held the catering contract for The Exchange Restaurant, which was once situated in the basement of this grand building.
Guests are served meals made with local produce and can enjoy everything from breakfast and afternoon tea to a romantic dinner for two.”
The Exchange Hotel
The Exchange Hotel is worthy of any award, be it a physical one or a place on this list – and we know this because it is simply breathtaking.
A sophisticated spectacle, The Grade Two listed building is not only located in the heart of the capital, but it also holds a special place in the heart of the locals. Packed with opulent history and grandeur throughout, The Exchange has been restored to its former pomp and prestige.
The luxury hotel is an architectural triumph and while it’s been restored to its splendid glory, it’s also leading the way in entertainment, hospitality and events.
Like our restaurant, we are extremely proud of not only The Exchange Hotel, but of Wales and are keen to see it flourish.
We couldn’t be prouder to be named as one of the 50 best hotels in Wales and we hope you can join us to celebrate. That said, there’s always plenty to keep everyone entertained in our remarkable, wonderful city.
