  • Wonderful venue, fantastic acoustics, genuinely lovely staff and the most fabulous array of varying performances to delight any age, interest, or tastes. However, the seats in the auditorium have seen many, many better days! Both mine and my mother's seats were sloping down towards the floor! I'm very disappointed that the seating, lifts & toilets haven't yet been upgraded. As a disabled patron, with my elderly mother, we have found it extremely difficult to enjoy our visits here. Especially when we're so uncomfortable during the performance. We were most embarrassed in attempting to get out of our seats after the performance had finished...there was simply no support in the base of the seats! (Such a shame!)
  • Terrific range of concerts. Many classic performances have happened here. A real asset to Cardiff.
  • Cardiff biggest seated venue not for the faint healted as the seating is very steep. It's accessible but in need of renovation.
  • Good large venue. Not the best for legroom for a tall person but far from the worst. One small lift makes it a nightmare for people with mobility problems to get in or especially with the many floors.
  • A wonderful concert hall with beautiful acoustics, unfortunately let down by outdated, uncomfortable seating (I found this to be the case on several occasions).
