A historic city stay overflowing with grandeur at Cardiff's Coal Exchange, a trading market floor turned luxury hotel with dramatic interiors and fine dining – breakfast included

Dating back to the 1880s, Cardiff's Coal Exchange played a central role to this port city's shipping industry, as a bustling market floor for coal trading. Turned into a music venue but closed in 2013, it has since been restored to its original glory, and is now set to make a comeback under the wing of hotel group Signature Living, as The Exchange Hotel: a historic destination for a truly once-in-a-lifetime stay in the city.

Grandeur knows no bounds at this brand new pad, which has been thoughtfully designed to feature stylish guest rooms with brooding old-world charm, a wedding venue, and a high-end restaurant topped with chandeliers in the building's former bank section. You'll still find plenty of history within its walls, though, as its original structure and striking features - including a First World War memorial in the grand hall - have all been carefully preserved.

With a stay here, you'll be ideally placed to enjoy Cardiff Bay's waterfront sights and strolls, but head inland for a chance to discover local farmers' markets, 2,000 acres of parkland that extend all the way to the Brecon Beacons, and the unmissable Gothic Cardiff Castle. Cardiff Bay station is a five-minute walk away, while central Cardiff and its main station are a 15-minute drive north.

Rooms

As their name suggests, Luxury rooms offer the height of indulgence, with a shimmering colour scheme, plush velvet throws, statement-making heavy draped curtains and grand antique-style furnishings - all set in rich, moody hues. A sofa, double whirlpool bath, Bluetooth surround sound system and lovely city views make for an even more memorable stay. Wi-Fi access comes as standard throughout these ground-floor guest rooms.

Dining

The Coal Exchange is set to take Cardiff's dining scene by a storm with two on-site restaurants, including a high-end option situated in the building's former bank section, for everything from succulent steaks to simply hearty burgers. A delicious breakfast, as well as well-presented afternoon tea, are also available to satiate your morning and pre-dinner cravings.

Location

Situated a short walk from Cardiff Bay station and a 15-minute drive from the main Cardiff station, this hotel puts you in the perfect place for exploring the city's waterfront attractions, as well as its more central sights. Close to your doorstep, enjoy a stroll through the Cardiff Bay Wetlands Reserve or visit the Wales Millennium art centre. Head inland to find the Victorian Gothic Cardiff Castle, before soaking up history at the National Museum, hiring a bicycle to explore the expansive parkland that stretches out to the Brecon Beacons, tasting local delicacies at the four farmers' markets across the city, or catching an evening ballet show at St David's Hall.

What is a Smart Stay?

How are these deals different to your flash sales?

Some getaways are less about blowing the budget on a huge suite, and more about discovering a knock-out destination. When it’s the sights beyond the hotel walls you’re really interested in, it makes perfect sense to go for smart accommodation with great reviews, plenty of creature comforts and a price well below what you’d expect for the area.


And that’s what these stays are – ultra-affordable three- and four-star hotels chosen as carefully as our chicest five-stars. Whether it’s a well-picked base for London or a fly-and-flop break in the sun, you’ll find our Smart stays in savvy, accessible locations, usually with dinner included and other thoughtful extras that are the signature of a Secret Escapes holiday.
