The Glendale Hotel is ideally located to explore Cardiff, Penarth Sea front and the Vale of Glamorgan.
Cardiff Bay is accessible by train, water taxi or walking across the barrage from Penarth Marina.
There you will find something for everyone. From the Doctor Who exhibition and The Techniquest to a multiplex cinema, theatre and plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to keep you refreshed whilst you explore the Nations Capital.
Cardiff Castle is a short train ride away from the bay. Over 2000 years old it dates back to Roman times. The National Trust house and gardens at Dyffryn are an absolute delight to visit any time of the year.
Penarth is a delightful Victorian sea side town with a number of parks, an esplanade and a Victorian pier.
The pier pavilion has undergone extensive renovations and is an iconic landmark forming a major visitor attraction.
The town centre is compact and easy to get around with plenty of interesting shops in which to browse. The parks are very well maintained and offer a peaceful setting for those wanting to sit and relax whilst taking in the sea views.
The Glendale Hotel is adjacent to a path that takes you directly down to the sea front - perfect for working up an appetite for dinner or lunch at our in-house restaurant - Villa Napoli!
The awesome rugged heritage coast is within comfortable driving distance of The Glendale Hotel.
Spectacular cliff walks and a sandy beach at Southerndown Bay offers you the choice of either relaxing on the beach or taking to the footpaths for a more rigorous adventure and enjoying the magnificent views.
200 million years ago this part of the South Wales coast was in the southern hemisphere, near to the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.
Making its journey northwards, the beds of carboniferous limestone brought with them many fossils including corals which, for the geologists among you will enjoy discovering!
