Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete62 welcoming and helpful staff
we stayed here the night before flying to Menorca. we also
used the parking facilities for the duration of our holiday.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the courtesy car to and from airport meant a trouble free arrival and return from our holiday.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Internet Charges
As a Priority Club Platinum I do not understand the policy of charging for the Internet. This is not true for any other HI Express I have stayed in. When I remarked on this, i was given a free one hour instead opf the normal free 1/2 hour. Nice people/bad policy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barn02 Except for the WiFi services, our stays were quite enjoyable.
My wife and I stayed twice at this property, at the beginning and end of a vacation in Wales. The service was outstanding, and the rooms quite comfortable. Pub and food service was good, better than expected. The convenient location to the airport was an important reason to select this hotel, and the "shuttle service" was quite helpful.
But...the WiFi services were TERRIBLE, from the rooms and from the lobby and so-called business center. The multiple problems...without going into detail... can and should be corrected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LSLB Friendly, helpful staff
Review from a party of one senior citizen, one adult and one 5 year old child. Staff friendly and helpful from the moment we checked in, including time for the child. We were able to have an early evening meal and were given a choice from the children's menu. Room was comfortable, clean and more than adequate for our needs. This is the second time within the last year we have stayed here and would have no hesitation in booking again. We were offered a priority card membership, which we accepted, as adult and child were booking into another Holiday Inn Express the following night. Unfortuately their experience there was far from pleasant as their review will show.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Donato As good as it gets.
For an overnight stay to catch an early flight this hotel provides everything you need. Quiet rooms,comfortable beds and perhaps the best thing about it is the staff,who cannot do enough to make the stay enjoyable. Special thank to Vicky due to the fact the vegetarian option was not available went out of her way to prepare a good alternative.

This is our second stay at his hotel and it won't be the last.
The staff greet you with a smile, they are all polite and helpful.
We book for a restful night before an early flight the next morning
and that's what we get. Keep up the good work.

Holiday inn cardiff airport is one hotel approached to deal with any corporate stays as I myself commute lots. Competitive rate received. Rooms clean and tidy. Food although the menu was basic food was hot and tasty. Breakfast a wide variety and selection to get the day started.
Have already rebooked for my next stay which is 17 nights so need somewhere that as a travelling single female on business I feel safe and comfortable so highly recommended especially as a fly into Cardiff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Holidayflyer Good stay sullied by the lack of late night food
We have stayed at this hotel twice within a fortnight after having cancelled a stay at a local nearby hotel. Good value for money, very clean, excellent staff and service.
On the first occasion, we had moved from another hotel and the staff were great, dealing with our late booking with ease. Quality of food was very good both in the evening and the following morning. Room was clean and comfortable. Transfer to the airport was spot on and was included in our parking price at the hotel.
On our return, a quick call to the hotel and the transfer bus was there in minutes. Checking in was very quick and we were on our way to the room in minutes. Now comes the only rub, we arrived back at the hotel about 10 o'clock at night and we could not get a bite to eat not even a sandwich. We were however offered various take-away menus which we could have ordered from an had sent to the hotel. At that time of night do you really want to be ordering pizza's etc. Breakfast in the morning was excellent, check out was easy and we were on our way.
Would we use this hotel again, certainly! It is good value for money and if you could get late night snacks it would be excellent value!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pissarro Another brilliant stay
This was my second stay at the hotel.and once again it did not disappoint. Everything about the hotel is of the highest standard including the cleanliness of the rooms, the breakfast - now with cooked items as well - and the friendliness of the staff. The only downside was the megabucks we had to pay for the room as we were here for the Wales v England rugby match. In view of the result, however, it was worth it!

Dear Sir/ Madam,
with regret i have to write this complain to your attention. The sofa bed was not up to standard, basically its brocken. I had to sleep on the sofa bed as my son started to complain about the bed. and it was so... uncomfortable. I hope you will attend to this matter and make this correct.

This was a holiday stay to visit family although I travel internationally for business several times a year. I was pleasantly delighted by the hotel staff who were exceptionally friendly and helpful. My room was new, clean and comfortable with a fantastic shower - so important! The hotel experience greatly reduced the usual flying stress especially with just a 2 minute shuttle ride to the airport.
A 5 star experience for a fraction of the price.

My husband and I (and Dog) has a most enjoyable stay at a very stressful time in our lives. The Staff (night and day) were most considerate. I would recommend this particular Hotel to all. A very comfortable bed, warm room. Good facilities and excellent food at Pub Prices.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by roy2 convenient hotel for airport nearby
I have stayed at this holiday inn many times and although check inn is quick and efficient , there is always a lack of personal welcome. Any queries are treated in a business manner, prompt and informative but with without personal involvement. It would be pleasant to be asked, How was a your journey ? or, please to see you, or, did you find us OK ? This is a trait with younger staff who seem unsuited to the role of hospitality. Other than that it is a convenient place to stay which offers morning breakfast for early departures and is spotlessly clean,

Stayed for one night at hotel before flying to Canada. Bedroom was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was fresh with good variety. Best of all was the staff, the reception staff and shuttle bus driver was extremely helpful and very nice. Would stay again. One of the best Holiday Inn i have stayed at.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cyclinggnome It started so well!
We arrived on Christmas Eve, check-in as a priority club member was quick and efficient. The two staff on duty were friendly and helpful.
The room was spacious, light and airy. It was clean and looked well kept. There was a choice of pillows, soft and firm, ample hanging space for an overnight stay and tea/coffee making facilities within the room.
We had an enjoyable evening meal from a limited menu. The food, although basic, was edible and well presented. The hot continental breakfast suffered as a result of a lack of choice, although it was Christmas day when we had this meal. What was available was again edible.
We had a good night sleep, the en-suite bathroom was ‘lovely’, according to my wife who can be rather critical of such facilities. We were not disturbed by the fellow guests. A rare occurrence in hotels of this type
Check-out was equally efficient and, as we had a ‘Park and Stay’ offer, the transfer to the airport was emotional – three adults, two large bags all fitting in to a very small car, but we had a laugh.
Sadly, our only gripe surrounds the transfer back to the hotel on return from our holiday. Despite two minibuses and a hotel car, all parked outside of the hotel reception area, we had to wait 20 minutes, in an open airport car park, for a taxi to drive from Barry to pick us up for the 5 minute journey back to the hotel. We were disappointed by the lack of efficiency surrounding this service!

I stayed at the Cardiff holiday inn express. Staff there were very friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble when I asked how the temperature could be varied in my room. The rooms are clean and bright. Most of all though thank you so much to the cleaner who found the jewellery I had mistakenly left in my room and for the staff who posted my jewellery back to me. I phoned up the holiday inn when I was in Glasgow and within 48 hours the jewellery was back in my home in Shetland. Thank you so very much for your honesty and quick service. Amongst the jewellery was a pair of Welsh "Clogau" gold earings my mother had given me two weeks before she died. It meant so much to me.

We stayed at the Holiday Express Rhoose, prior to our next day flight to Tenerife. Reception staff very polite and helpful. Room was very spacious and clean. We ate in the evening, with a good choice of menu, our only complaint was the drafts for the overhead air-con, you had to choose a table away from the blowers.
s the hotel is only a couple of mintues from the airport, We would definately stay again and recommend to friends.

Excellent service from the moment we arrived, the staff were
pleasant and helpful. The evening meal was enjoyable and the
atmosphere was nice.
We had a very restful night, the room was clean and comfortable
and in the morning the breakfast was just right.
And the arranged pick up from the airport after our holiday could
not have gone smoother, we phoned on the free phone and were
picked up within 5 minutes and taken back to the hotel to pick up
our car, and the driver said we could go inside to help ourselves
to a free cup of tea/coffee before our onward journey which is
a nice thought...Well done, would recommend to all our friends..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkyBaby One night stay for business
From the friendly welcome at check-in to the friendly farewell at check-out the staff and the hotel never failed to please.
One worry during booking was that the room would be noisy with the hotel being so close to the airport, but the triple glazing soon put paid to that.
The hotel felt clean throughout.
The cost of the food was substantially cheaper than other expresses that I've stayed in. (especially with the 10% discount for priority club members in the bar and restaurant)
Breakfast was excellent.
I've stayed in quite a few Holiday Inns and Expresses over the last 5 years and can honestly say that this was the best overall experience of the lot (including some of the big Holiday Inns) and should be held up as a benchmark for others in the chain to aspire to.
