With its handy location between Cardiff Bay and the city centre, and overlooking Bute East Dock, Holiday Inn Express® Cardiff Bay hotel makes a convenient base.

A 10-minute walk from the hotel, the rejuvenated Cardiff Bay area is home to restaurants and bars, plus the Doctor Who Experience and the Wales Millennium Centre. Walk 15 minutes north from the hotel, and you'll reach central Cardiff, where the sights include the Principality Stadium, formerly known as Millennium Stadium, and Cardiff Castle.

The hotel's central location also suits business travellers. You can host a meeting in either of two naturally lit conference rooms, which seat up to 20 delegates. Attendees can take advantage of on-site parking and free WiFi.

Each morning you can enjoy sausages, scrambled eggs and baked beans, as well as continental choices, at the inclusive breakfast buffet. At the end of a busy day, unwind with a cold beer or a glass of wine in the hotel bar.

Guest Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 601 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Cardiff was great, sadly the stay was not 4 night stay, no change of linen despite an obvious ? tea stain on the top sheet. Some staff were civil and even helpful, but a disproportionate number could do with customer service training and just be happier in their work. We understand this is the budget end of the group and regularly stay across the group but this is one of the most disappointing stays at HIE in a long time, possibly even ever. We realise that some of the benefits for IHG rewards club are set centrally but 300 bonus points as the "benefit" for being spire elite at this site is pretty poor. We understand that rooms are standard and thus an "upgrade" is not possible but 300 points or a single drink is pretty poor for a 4 night stay at a higher cost than many Holiday Inn sites.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Drunken stag do kept us all awake Hotel is what you'd expect from a holiday inn express. Clean rooms, acceptable breakfast just a shame we didn't sleep because of the other guests and there was a general lack of response from the staff when this was raised at check-out April 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff and comfortable enjoyable stay Friendly, comfortable and easy access to Cardiff Bay and centre April 26, 2016
