Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Reasonable Stay During RWC 2015
Genuine welcome from friendly and helpful staff. Room a bit tight for a family of four, but okay. Kids are getting a bit big for Holiday Inn sofa beds so perhaps not the most comfortable sleep. Mad busy at breakfast due to the Rugby World Cup match on at the time and the hotel consequently being full, but the staff did a great job trying to keep a lot of hungry ( some hungover) people happy. The hotel is not the easiest to find (nothing to do with the hotel, everything to do with bad road signage in Cardiff). A bit off the beaten track, (halfway between and 10 minutes walk from the City Centre and Cardiff Bay) but a quiet and safe location which will catch up with the rest of the city when the redevelopment between the two locations joins up. Not the most attractive building but clean and functional inside. Not so sure about the ITV Wales newsreader's comment to the effect that 'a lot of people are hoping England lose' (the Rugby match against Australia - which they did go on to lose) - not particularly diplomatic or good for cross-border relations with the English. Up there with Kiwis singing 'I'd rather be Georgian than English' at a NZ vs Georgia fixture. Obvious Kiwi inferiority complex shining through - you decide? Can't hold these things against Holiday Inn Express though........

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henrik07 RWC Weekend stay
Overall I can say that my experience of this hotel was excellent. Staff were friendly and accommodating, room clean and tidy. Close to all major visitor attractions.
Slight problem accessing wi-fi in my room but not much of an issue.
The rate I paid was quite expensive, however I travelled to see a Rugby World Cup match, so I really cant complain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hazzy555 Very good hotel, comfortable bed with choice of pillows
Good hotel in a very good location if you like to walk to the city and bay. Very quiet for the location.
Very good night sleep, comfy mattress and choice of soft or hard pillows.
