The Parkgate Hotel, Cardiff

The Parkgate Hotel, one of Cardiff’s most luxurious destinations, has been awarded 4 Silver Star Hotel status, as part of the AA’s assessment scheme, with the hotel’s signature restaurant, The Sorting Room, celebrating 2 coveted AA Rosettes for culinary excellence.

With a host of alluring spaces to meet and drink, dine, and relax, The Parkgate Hotel houses 170 guest bedrooms and suites, a signature restaurant and bar, an elegant tea lounge, and a luxurious rooftop spa with panoramic views overlooking the city skyline.

The AA, which has long been a marker of leading restaurant and hotel venues, celebrates the crème de la crème of UK hospitality. Following a visit from an anonymous inspector, the hotel was reviewed against nine quality assessment areas, ranging from standards of service to cleanliness and quality of food.

Praising The Parkgate Hotel’s “intrinsic quality and spaciousness” and “engaging and welcoming attitude from the team”, the AA Inspector’s Report described the hotel as a “pleasure to visit.”

The inspector also paid tribute to the hotel’s vibrant brasserie restaurant, The Sorting Room, highlighting the “excellent cuisine”, “robust flavours” and “bold presentation” of the food which contributed to the decision to award the restaurant 2AA Rosettes.
