Choose the waterfront Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Bay hotel, a short walk from Cardiff Bay and the city centre. Set on Cardiff Bay's picturesque old east dock, the inviting Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Bay is located 5 miles from the M4 motorway and just a 15 minute walk from conferences and concerts at the Motorpoint Arena . Many of our modern Guest rooms overlook the canal and you can wake up to a all inclusive breakfast buffet in our bright Great Room each morning. There's ample secure parking at Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Bay, and you can check email with wireless Internet throughout the hotel. Our air-conditioned meeting rooms overlook the canal and our Business Centre's PCs are available round the clock. It's a short stroll from the hotel to city centre businesses . We're 10 minutes' walk from waterside dining at Cardiff Bay , and 15 minutes from Cardiff city centre's cosmopolitan shopping and vibrant nightlife. Nearby Cardiff City Stadium hosts thrilling home football clashes and the Millennium Stadium , just over a mile away, has an exciting calendar of music and international sports. Back at Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Bay, you can mingle over drinks in the open-plan Lobby bar with news and sport on the big screen. Take your drinks onto the canal-facing terrace in warm weather and feel free to ask our friendly staff for local restaurant recommendations.

Don't stay here

This hotel was not the quality that I expect from this chain. The rooms where like a cheap motel. The price was incredibly high, but we were in town for an international rugby match, so that was expected. And regardless of what the site says this is not in or even near the center of Cardiff. The other problems would have been easier to deal with if it hadn't been so far away from everything.

Clean friendly hotel. Perfect location for Cardiff Bay and a £5 taxi into the centre. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty if basic. Superb value for a stay in Cardiff. PS Car park is £3 per night.

Its is basicaly fine...

The hotel is fine. The staff was really kind. Our room was clean and well equiped. The location was perfect: 5 min to the bay, 10 min to the City centre or/and the bus station. But: the breakfast was very boring: same meal (omlet, bacon, muffin, toast) on every morning.

Very comfortable

I felt very welcome at the hotel. The entire staff was not only courteous but extremely helpful. Given the fact that there was a large convention in the area and the hotel was totally booked, that didn't stop the staff from making me feel very welcome. I would definitely stay there again.

Ideal location

Well placed for visiting Cardiff, approx 10 mins walk to either the bay or city centre. Hotel very clean, room was comfortable & overlooked Bute Dock, little noisy from nearby traffic (but only because we had windows open). Breakfast was good, plenty of choice & replenished constantly. Staff all polite & friendly. There is a £6 charge for car park payable on check out, however you can park all day on departure day, should you choose to. Definitely recommend & use again
