Featured Cardiff Hotels

Be our guest at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Cardiff. You'll soon take to the friendly Welsh capital, whether cozying up in a pub in the city center or sauntering along cutting-edge Cardiff Bay.

Sitting high on a hill, Cardiff Castle has watched over the Welsh capital since Roman times. For fine castle views, take a relaxed stroll through Bute Park on the banks of the River Taff. Entry to the permanent collections at Cardiff's big museums is free. The highlight is the National Museum Cardiff, where you'll find Bronze Age gold, meteorites and French Impressionist art. Our Cardiff hotels are close to the city's showpiece, Cardiff Bay, with architectural wonders like the Millennium Center and the National Assembly for Wales (Senedd).

You'll find everything you need for a picnic in the park at the Victorian Central Market, from raisin-studded Welsh cakes to cheese from the valleys. Join locals at a pub in the city center for hearty Welsh fare, Brains beer and banter. Our hotels in Cardiff are close to Cardiff Bay, which is strikingly illuminated after dark. Work up your appetite for a good-value fish supper with a wander along the waterfront. Party in the lively pubs and clubs along St. Mary and Church streets and in Cardiff Bay. Our Cardiff hotels are within easy reach of the architecturally innovative Millennium Center, which hosts free lunchtime concerts most days. For a lingering taste of Wales, shop for creamy fudge and hand-carved Welsh love spoons in the city center's Victorian arcades.

Stay at our hotels in Cardiff to enjoy this year-round city of song. Come in summer for the Welsh Proms and free gigs at the outdoor Cardiff Festival. Visit in spring, when daffodils sway in Cardiff's parks, or November, when fireworks soar above the city.

Great hotel
By Hotel_Guest1234
Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Hot food served until late so I could still get a dinner when I came in. The shuttle bus service to the airport is brilliant as well. Rooms were lovely and very [More] comfortable and nice and quiet too. [Less]
Great service and friendly staff.

Used hotel this week on the park, stay and go option but did park, go then stayed for one night after holiday as we were using the nearby airport and had a late return flight. Room was clean, [More] comfortable and excellent service from helpful, friendly staff - no problems with the free shuttle bus service too. Would definitely stay again if flying from airport on early/late flight. [Less]
Looked after

Staff were very friendly while remaining professional. Arranged for bus to come and fetch us from airport late at night. Our car would not start when we were leaving so they invited us back into [More] hotel for coffee while we waited for RAC [Less]
The Staff are The Best
By Npbtudor
My wife and I travelled down from Chester to attend an Engagement party about 30mins away in Risca. I love the location of this hotel, so convenient. Only down side is they really do need a bigger [More] car park. Great welcome at reception, very helpful and informative and gave us a city map with directions to a store we needed to visit. The room was very comfortable and clean. Huge bed! Slept well too. Had nice Guinness in bar and huge coffee, both very good and for hotel prices not over the top really. The breakfast was very good and the pancake maker is just brilliant. The restaurant staff were so attentive and thorough but friendly too. Want to visit again if we can. What makes this hotel is the staff who are just so friendly and helpful. It doesn't matter how good the hotel is without this vital ingredient. [Less]

Best Holiday inn experience
By JDfue
I have stayed in many hotels around the world including a 6 star in Australia but this is a well organised and run hotel with very friendly, helpful staff from the reception to the waitresses to the [More] buffet. Only one person was a bit glum (girl on the bar but we all have our bad days) but happy to recommend this hotel for the all round organisation and welcoming staff! Vey good! [Less]
