The hotel was lovely, a good size room and bathroom, ours overlooked the wharf. Breakfast was included and was a self service buffet of hot and cold choices, they even had grab bags and take out coffee cups if you were in a hurry.

Dinner at Strada followed, not far to walk, just next door. Cardiff Bay has so many bars and restaurants you are spoilt for choice. The food at Strada was gorgeous, I do enjoy their bread selection starter and loved their creamy Penne Carbonara. Everyone enjoyed their meal in a very relaxing but busy restaurant.
Saturday morning gave us beautiful weather so we took a short stroll round the edge of the bay towards The Barrage. You can walk all the way to Penarth, crossing the locks and watching the boats navigate in and out but although it was sunny it was far to windy to walk this time.

To start our evening off we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink; this time non-alcoholic. Elderflower Sherbet is such a refreshing softail, perfect start to our amazing meal.
