The breakfast was well presented and a good selection of foods to cater for the continental taste buds, but I was surprised that bacon was not offered as one of the hot foods - it was sorely missed.

The Team working here on my stay were incredibly helpful, friendly and an asset to the Hotel/Company.
Even the gentleman making breakfast at 6am was friendly helpful and efficient checking me out. Even offering me breakfast although I was slightly early for it :)
Thanks to all! Sorry I didn't get any names.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lloydyg Great service and friendly staff
I have stayed at the Cardiff Bay for 3 nights over the past couple of weeks and despite a faulty shower head on the first night, I have found the hotel to be very welcoming and I can't commend the staff enough for treating me as a valued customer when I reported the shower fault. On my second stay the staff also recognised me from my previous stays which is always nice.
The fact that I found it difficult to relax and sleep was more due to the fact that I was working overnight than anything the hotel did or didn't do.
Overall, the stay was extremely pleasant and I would defiinitley recommend, I will certainly use the hotel again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Liza62 Relaxing hotel with helpful staff
The staff were polite and helpful.
My partner and myself enjoyed our stay because the hotel was in a peaceful and quiet location but only a few minutes walking distance from busy Cardiff Bay.
The room was clean and tidy providing a comfortable large bed and everything that we needed for our stay.
The buffet breakfast gave plenty of choice and there were staff on hand to help provide anything you needed.
The hotel was easy to find with cheap ample parking spaces. We will return and would recommend the Holiday Express Cardiff Bay to our friends and family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aussie 2014 Fantastic Hospitality and Great Location from Cardiff Bay!
We stayed 2 nights and thought all staff of the hotel had been very friendly and helpful. Great Hospitality!! Great Location which very close to the Cardiff Bay and have also car park space which is great for self drive visitors. Thought Hot Meal Selection of the Breakfast was limited but enjoyed. over roll, we had fantastic stay in Cardiff. Only one thing that we would like to mention was.... difficult to find the Hotel.... we lost the way to get there and circle around the area many times. Would helpful if there are some sign on the main road!!

Well located hotel. First time I had used it and staff were excellent from start to finish. Only minor quibble was having to pay for car parking but really no great deal if you consider what the city centre car parks would have been charging.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by salalah Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Cardif Bay.
I have mentioned most things previously. We have stayed in a few Holiday Inns both Inns and Express Inns all to our approval. Probably the best stay we had was the Holiday Inn in Centre of Cardiff, three years ago just before Christmas and we could not move our car for snow, However it was great, wonderful breakfast in the hotel and a great time in Cardiff with all the Christmas Markets.

Great staff & hotel - one year on from my last visit Barry remembered me. This was a super start to our stay.
We were there well before check-in time however we got a very warm welcome and we were offered the facilities after a 4 hour drive to Cardiff.
Later on in the day when we checked in, Helen was again very professional. chirpy and friendly. Check-in was a breeze as 4 rooms were required and once in the room everything had been set-up as requested.
After ordering take-a-ways the staff helped us with the cleaning up.
Breakfast was again quality with super assistance from the morning staff. Great choice of breakfast with little fuss.
Check-out - no issues!
Recommend this house 100%.
Thank you HI Express Cardiff and a special thanks to Barry & Helen - a huge credit to IHG.
Will be back... very soon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TinDog32 Great choice for comfort
I picked this hotel because of the situation between downtown and bay.
Nice place to stay, room clean and comfortable. Great view on water, perfect place to relax and take breakfast.
I'll come back to Cardiff (soon I hope), but for sure, I'll stay in this hotel again!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reviewer101 Great location with wonderful staff
Staff were absolutely fantastic - friendly, helpful and approachable. The room was adequate for our short visit but somewhat over priced for a basic stay. Breakfast didn't have any bacon which was our main disappointment, but the rest of the food was good. Just make sure you find out the way to get from the hotel to Cardiff Bay rather than wandering around aimlessly like we did!

Generally the stay was fine, but there was a strange buzzing noise, which probably came from the Air Con Unit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Berty42 cost
I believe our stay to be a little expensive,it will put us off from staying again and would aim to find an alternative hotel. Also do not appreciate having to pay for parking when staying in the hotel, especially for the price paid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mick56 Handy location, comfortable room,parking easy
I have been using this hotel for several years as i have a Dr Who fan in one of my kids and we make a yearly trip to Cardiff in order to visit the Dr Who Experience. The hotel has courteous staff who gave us a friendly welcome on arrival. The family room was on the first floor and was clean and tidy, all lights worked and the heating/ air con functioned fine. Only minor moan is a lack of storage space for a family of 4 but we coped.
From the window we looked across one of the old docks, traffic noise was minimal. Breakfast was a buffet affair which was ok but the single bread toasting machine was a bit tricky to set at right speed and a queue would form as it was rather slow, a second machine would solve the problem. Our window had cobwebs on the outside and at night you could watch spiders busily building them. Overall i recommend this hotel as good value for money and we will no doubt return for another weekend next summer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kimhb Lovely friendly staff made up for a room with no room to breathe!
I use Holiday Inn Express all the time for business travels and this is the first time for pleasure. Taking my grandson to the Dr Who experience so needed a family room; it was smaller than rooms I have had elsewhere for me alone. We could not easily get to the window. But as it was only one night I didn't fuss and the staff were wonderful, which made up for everything. I was also shocked at the price; it was the most expensive holiday inn Express I think I have stayed at

We were welcomed by Barry with enthusiasm. A nice touch.
Comfy bed and sofa bed. Pillows are not as firm, but way too fluffy that it goes flat.

loved our stay here, all the staff were very welcoming especially jessica at reception and the lady on at breakfast (think she may have been german-katzerine?)who was always rushed off her feet but always had a sincere smile on her face and had time to chat. perfect base for exploring centre of cardiff. Good pub/ restaurant just a few feet away, food excellent, but other choices also in short walking distance.

I did not make correct bus reservations regarding a day trip to Liverpool. Consequently, I thought about renting a car. Kay went above and beyond to secure an auto for me, even though, in the end, I decided against it, Kay did everything in her power to assist me...simply awesome, amazing!
