Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rees23 Lovely staff and central position
Spent 2 nights at this very comfortable and central hotel.
Staff really helpful, supplied my daughter with a toothbrush and really flexible with leaving luggage all day. Welsh cakes at reception and complimentary newspaper a lovely touch.
Thank you for a lovely stay, will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nicky7914 Great location for local pubs and nightlife
Great stay although breakfast finishes too early at 09:30. This is not consistent across other Holiday Inns.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sally8 Quiet, comfortable & in a great position
Stayed for one night in Cardiff. Returned to the hotel around midnight after a concert to find a friendly member of staff on duty. The hotel was quiet although there were still people in the bar. After a good night sleep and a fantastic breakfast I left the hotel feeling relaxed. I will definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Longleat Lion Exceptionably helpful and pleasant staff
What a wonderful stay we had with you! Our four day break was just what we needed to give my wife a respite from her gruelling routine of chemotherapy.Everything ran smoothly,from ease of parking to tempting Welsh cakes in reception and lots of cheering advice and help from Leigh,A.J.,and Pedro to name but a few.Perfectly situated hotel for the lovely city of Cardiff and plentiful local attractions and it stayed DRY for almost all our early March break.Possibly most importantly,the Hotel Manager came to ask us if everything was to our liking.Thankyou to everyone who made our stay so memorable,and thanks for the ceiling track hoist!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by philT end of a long weekend
check in very good we were early due to light traffic and the front desk staff had no problem with this, the room allocated was okay with a large double bed over looking the stadium the quiet side the bathroom however was small compared to other hotels but okay. what we did find strange was that there were no flannels / face clothes on asking if we could get some we were told they do not have them. The bar drinks and evening meal in the restaurant was excellent, Trouble free check out will stay again next time in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaulHP Very friendly Staff
Great location in the city centre.
Great breakfast, the kids really enjoyed their pancakes.
The staff were some of the friendliest we've encountered in any hotel.
The family room over looking the river was large enough for the four of us, with plenty of space for my daughters to play.
Will definitely be staying here again when we re-visit Cardiff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Great Welcome and location
Great welcome, booked online, the two rooms were exceptionally clean and of good proportions. Linen clean and crisp. Bar staff very friendly and accommodating, as were the breakfast staff. The dining room was large and roomy and gave a feeling of 'space'. The Quality of the food at breakfast was fantastic, hot and lots of choice.
Only negative - the booking process did not identify me as a Priority Club/IHG Ambassador - oh well cant have everything - but a great stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by henry'fs folks our recent stay
As usual,we enjoyed our stay with you in Cardiff;welcoming staff and superb location.It had been noted that we required a safe on our last visit,and,this time were allocated a room with a safe.Our room was not quite ready when we arrived,but apologies were made and drinks were provided whilst we waited.Our only dissatisfaction was the fact that the rroom seemed to have been very hurriedly made up by the time we returned early on Sunday evening.We had to ask for the waste bin to be emptied,and.the bed appeared untidily made up.We had left the room at 11am.and were out all day.This has never happened before and seemed most unusual,Apart from that everything was of the high standard we have grown accustomed to.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Taff935 Nice View
This hotel is ideally situated for Cardiff, our room was on floor 6 and the view was fantastic, however this came at a price as the water pressure was awful. The room was clean and very spacious. Drinks were a bit expensive but it is a hotel.

Used our Priority Club points for two rooms on the Friday, great value!
Breakfast was in the Brecon Room, because of a function in the restaurant, so not quite as good as usual (keeping things hot) but our granddaughter made full use of the pancake machine!.
Great atmosphere on the Saturday before the match, selling curries to go, a male voice choir and 'Boyceown' outside under the canopy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by arjayem Excellent staff and good food
Stayed three nights from January 11th 2014.
Nice hotel, good staff, good food.
Standard room on 6th floor was comfortable, quiet and clean BUT let down by shabby furnishings and needed some TLC.
Bathroom was small and sink was cracked.
Would stay again but not if room was not refurbished.

Quite a small room but clean. TV remote didn't work and one of the lights. Also the gym which they have an arrangement with was really awful. It's a really handy location though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rugby fan Great hotel in a central location
A lovely hotel right in the middle of the city, overlooking the river and Cardiff Arms Park, and a couple of minutes walk from the Millennium Stadium. The web site pictures do not do the place justice - we were nearly put off by the old-style televisions suggesting a place in need of an update, but the room had proper flat-screen TVs and an huge, comfortable bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kairanger Great value stay in excellent city centre location
The hotel is located right in the city centre across the road from the castle and next door to the Millenium Stadium. We had a large family room with a lovely view across the river. Room was spacious and clean. Main double bed was comfortable with the sofa bed and the pull out matress adequate for the kids even if they did complain a bit. A fantastic cooked breakfast was included in the price was a real bonus. Although right in the heart of the city we had no issues with noise and had a good nights sleep.
The staff were all friendly and helpful. All in all a great base to explore Cardiff. Highly recommended!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Suba69 Bathroom in poor condition
We have stayed at this hotel several times when visiting our family in Cardiff, this was the worst room we have been given todate. Bathroom sink had a crack in it, toilet did not work and the bathroom wall on the bedroom side was water damaged. Was the room worth £59 without breakfast and parking to be charged extra ? NO!
The last time we stayed at this hotel we had to pay £99, no breakfast and charged for parking extra as well !!! You were obviously pumping the prices up because some event was on in the City, not good news for regular customers.

This was a very good stay in a well appointed and spacious room.
The hotel was extremely well located only 5 minutes into the city centre.
Starbucks coffee on site.

Would definitely use again and recommend to friends.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 987654321 attention needed to breakfast - regularly cold
This was a return visit, and again the staff were very pleasant.
The hotel is nice, and located well.
The only downside is the breakfast, the cooked items always seem to be cold/lukewarm.
I raised this as a comment on departure, let us see what entails on my next visit.
Overall a nice hotel.

Bed was a bit hard, but otherwise perfect, staff very helpful and couldn't do enough for me. I was a bit worried about getting a car parking space, because you can't book one in advance, but there wasn't any problem.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by John1010HPL Disturbed by Christmas Parties
No warning had been given at the time of booking or when I phoned the hotel direct about parking facilities that there would be private Christmas parties on both nights of our stay. We were on the floor directly above the function rooms and could hear the music, etc.
The second night was worse so we asked to be moved which we did up to the fourth floor. This was much better.
Also the hotel restaurant was closed on our first night due to a private booking - again no advance warning.
Our first room was also very small, possibly the smallest I have stayed in for what is described as a standard double room.
Not a memorable stay therefore - at least not for a good reason.
However, our parking charges were waived for which I am grateful.
Shame the overall experience was poor/average.
