The Platinum Package is a popular comprehensive hospitality package that takes places in several hotel suites in Cardiff City Centre, all within easy walking distance of the Principality Stadium. This package provides excellent value for money considering the package content and the fabulous hostess service, especially if you are relaxed about your hospitality being outside the stadium.
For the majority of rugby internationals taking place at the Principality Stadium, the Platinum Package will be offered at the 3-star Angel Hotel, directly opposite the stadium’s East Stand on Westgate Street. For larger events, such as Wales v England (where demand is huge), several venues will be utilised, including:
Angel Hotel, CF10 1SZ (opposite stadium) - Dragon Suite (220 guests) & Prince of Wales Suite (120 guests)
Holiday Inn City, CF10 1XD (next to the stadium) - Brecon Suite (120 guests)
Radisson Blu, CF10 2FL (9 min walk) - Azzuro Ballroom (220 guests)
Park Inn by Radisson, CF10 2JH (12 min walk) - Llandaff Suite (180 guests)
Jurys Inn Cardiff, CF10 3UD (15 min walk) - Wedgewood Suite (80 guests)
Cardiff Castle, CF10 3RB (9 min walk) - The Undercroft (100 guests) & Guest Tower (24 guests)
The suites offer a similar experience, some have natural light whilst others are more atmospheric such as Cardiff Castle.
Private tables are available for 8-12 guests, smaller groups are required to share a table.
The majority of seats included in the Platinum Package are situated in the West Lower Stand, although some may be allocated in the East Lower Stand. The seats are provided in a block for your group and are located side-on to the action, between the 22m and Tryline. Please note that the lower tier of the Principality Stadium is quite shallow and does not afford a lofty elevated view. It will be necessary to leave the suite in plenty of time before kick-off because access to the West Stand is the opposite side of the stadium to the City Centre Hotels, and there will also be queues at the turnstiles.
Catering consists of a four-course luncheon followed by a post-match hot supper.
You will enjoy a Champagne reception followed by a complimentary bar. Please note that champagne is only included during the reception.
There is a full hostess service, which enhances the drinks service.
A rugby legend guest speaker is included in this package.
There are ample TV screens in the suites that allow guests to keep in touch with other sporting events and video highlights.
There are no car park passes included in this package, which means guests will have to use public transport, taxis, or source parking themselves Cardiff City Centre. Hotel car parking is restricted to hotel room guests.
A souvenir match programme is included.
Most hospitality options have no strict dress codes, however, smart casual is generally adopted (no trainers), it is advised to dress for the weather.
GPS users can get to Principality Stadium using the postcode CF10 1NS. There is little parking at the Stadium, however, there are several NCP car parks nearby, or guests are encouraged to use public transport. The closest train station is Cardiff Central, a short 5-minute walk to the Stadium.
