Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 464 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cardiff On arrival checkin was fast and efficent, staff was friendly and helpful especially about places of interest that my family and I wanted to visit. The only disappointment that there was no bacon at breakfast, I did enquire about this and they told me that this is company policy not to serve bacon. I did like the idea of having a small donation to charity for having hot drinks in the recpetion/bar area. Overall experience was excellent and nice that staff wished us a safe journey home and enjoy the rest of our day on our departure. I would have no hesitation in stopping here again as it is ideally situated between the city centre and Cardiff Bay. August 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely stay for the family Just returned from a night away with my family (2 adults and 2 children), at the holiday inn express Cardiff bay. Had a fab and relaxing time as this hotel was not only spotless, quiet and welcoming but also ideally situated for walking distance into Cardiff for shopping (My son and I did the millennium stadium tour), and also prime position to walk to Cardiff bay, where there are plenty of restaurants and fantastic views. On awakening from a quiet and comfy nights sleep we headed down to breakfast. We found the staff worked hard and were helpful and there was plenty of choice to keep both the adults and children (12 and 14) happy. Thank you Holiday inn express for a happy and memorable experience. I look forward to staying with you in the future. August 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great room for limited mobility An over night stop en-route to St Fagans. The disabled access room was great for my Mum who is of limited mobility. The room for me and m;y 2 children was great (except it wasn't made up when we got there! This was quickly rectified by the front desk personnel# All the personnel were friendly and helpful, especially the gentleman overseeing breakfast who even kissed our hands! #but not in a creepy way!)
