Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Bay

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

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.
