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.

Ideal situation for central Cardiff. I'm wheelchair bound so needs are specific. If you need a profiling bed - order it in advance: ditto shower chair. The staff, without exception, were helpful [More] and friendly. Everything was spotless. Easily adaptable room temperature. Breakfast was plentiful with great choices especially the fruit. Coffee was undrinkable! Free i newspaper - only the best! [Less]

A break away and attending a wedding at another venue
By Katie289542
Our stay was excellent, the staff were helpful, and accommodating. The hotel was very clean and our room was comfortable. There did seem initially a problem at breakfast time on morning of the 16th [More] July, apparently gas supply in kitchen was problematic; however the staff dealt with it as best they could. The only thing which should be changed, (did not affect me as I drink tea in the mornings) but my partner and quite obviously many other guests, although the staff served initial tea and coffee to each table, if anyone wanted a top up, they had to use hand pumped flasks, which were obviously difficult to use and obtain drinks from. Most reasonable hotels nowadays have coffee/drink machines where a customer presses a button to choose the beverage they would like, so long as a member of staff checks that all the correct ingredients are in place occasionally, all is good. This is really recommended for this hotel - a must have! [Less]
