Sleeperz Hotel Cardiff has reopened with a new seven storey 21-room extension that was repeatedly delayed by the pandemic.
Hotel staff welcomed their first guests yesterday (10 May) to experience the new wing which took 18 months and several phases of work to complete.
The expansion was designed by the Cardiff office of Holder Mathias Architects, specialists in urban masterplanning, leisure and retail developments, and was originally intended to complete in June 2020 but was set back by lockdowns, closures and Covid-19 restrictions.
The extension includes a combination of family, superior and accessible rooms and will aim to broaden the appeal of the city centre hotel to leisure and business travellers. The works also included upgraded redesigns to the bathroom pods throughout the pre-existing 74-room
Laura Peeroo, general manager of Sleeperz Hotels Cardiff, said: “It’s incredible to finally reopen the doors and welcome guests.
“All hoteliers have waited eagerly for the lifting of restrictions and the sight of guests checking in – but this is an extra special moment for us as we finally re-opened with an even bigger and better Sleeperz Hotel.”
David Myers, chief executive of Sleeperz Hotels Ltd, added: “Cardiff city centre has undergone an exciting transformation with the Central Square Cardiff development. It’s a stunning new gateway for visitors to the Welsh Capital and it’s all within a minutes’ walk of Sleeperz Hotels Cardiff.
“We are reopening at just the right time, as people leave lockdown eager to rediscover our cities and all of the lifestyle and entertainment experiences we’ve been missing during the pandemic.”
