We stay regularly at the Newport Holiday Inn Express and we have never been disappointed by the standard of service, the food or the quality of the facilities. This is an excellent hotel - all the staff are professional, friendly and extremely helpful.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by firmpillowlover Firm pillows - yes please!
Nice room, perfect for a one night stay. The breakfast choice was simple but well cooked/presented.
The option of firm pillows was a pleasant surprise, and this could easily be the tipping point when the prices are similar across a range of hotel chains to select from in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FILs simple THE best HIExpress!!!
the location for me was a bit out of the way but it was well worth the extra couple of miles i added to my journey - this , quite simply, is THE best Holiday Inn Express i have ever stayed in.
the whole experience was a please - from being greeted at the front desk, to the cleanliness of the common areas & my room to the speed & efficiency of the attentive staff - a great stay. i think the menus for in house eating was new & when i ordered i was told there was a 20 min wait - it is never an issue to wait for good food . & that is what is was. the menu had enough options on it to cover all tastes. the food was excellent.. overall it was a real pleasure ....even if you have some alternanative overnight accomodation closer to your destination, i would recommend staying here. Go on give it a try.

The location is close to Newport and not to far from Cardiff just off the motorway. It's a fairly new facility, very clean, quite and staff are friendly and well trained. The rates can be pricey unless you shop in advance or have a special discount.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PriorityClubMember101 Free parking
We stayed for 3 nights. Location is perfect because it has a huge parking space and it is free! Breakfast was good. It has almost everything for a typical english breakfast except bacon.
Location is close to a nearby supermarket. I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone and especially to people who has a vehicle. Thanks you Hioliday Inn Express Newport

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Another Visit!
This was yet another visit to this hotel, staff as usual friendly, helpful and efficient. Before booking in future will need to remember to ask if there are any coach parties booked and if so for how long, the noise from other guests was a big issue especially late at night and early mornings.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A Wonderful Croeso
We recently spent our third break at Lakeside Drive, Newport (our longest so far at 5 nights).
The hotel was busier than on previous visits, due to it beng Easter Bank Holiday, but the staff coped easily with the extra volume of people (and the breakfast rush!).
Lakeside Drive is situated close to junction 28 of the M4 giving quick and easy access to the main destinations/tourist places in the area. Unlike many other Holiday Inns, Newport's car park is free to use which helps when judging the overall cost of staying there.
The welcome is warm and inviting with all the facilities available explained before you see your room. Special mention for the reception staff who are always only too happy to assist.
The hotel room and bathroom are very clean and well equipped with supplies re-stocked daily if you require during longer stays.
The lounge area is perfect for relaxing and the dining room is nicely laid out with easy access to the self service areas.
Already looking forward to our fourth visit later this year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hayden81 Always a pleasure
Everytime my family visit South Wales, they always insist that I book them into this Holiday Inn Express.
Having stayed there numerous times, they love the hotel.
For them they are in an ideal location just on the outskirts of both Cardiff and Newport, giving various options.
The staff are always friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them.
The only slight downside (which is evident with all of the express brand) is that there is only limited choice on the breakfast.
Other than that, definitely a pleasure to stay here. Cannot speak highly enough of this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveT57 This hotel is never anything but great
From the friendly reception guy who greeted me although I was 2 hours early for my room, through the great service at the bar - all is good.
The cleaning staff even seem happy!
I am pleased that they have moved the smokers area to the back of the hotel - looks so much better when you drive up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sued52 Clean, comfortable and very good staff.
An enjoyable stay in a clean and well maintained hotel. The reception was first rate and nothing was too much trouble for the staff who seemed to multi-task. I wonder how they would have managed on a seriously busy night. That said, you got the sense that they would! The room was very clean and comfortable. My first choice from the dinner menu was disappointingly unavailable given the few people that seemed to be in the restaurant. My second choice was reasonable, but had I not been claiming the cost of this on this occasion, I would not have assessed the meal as being good value for money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jaffa286 Lack of sky sports
I was disappointed to be told that the hotel no longer subscribes to sky sports which means that I would be unable to watch these channels while staying at the hotel, not everybody likes to visit pubs etc to watch football , rugby . The sound would not have to be on to disturb other guests who do not like sport but the ability to watch sport would be an advantage

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian BMW Nice Stay Shame About the Air Con
Pleased overall with our stay at the Holiday Inn Express, Newport. Everything was up to a high standard and I would stay there again and recommend it to friends. Free Wi-Fi in the room was great for me.
The only negative point was the air con unit - I couldn't turn it off and the noise was a bit annoying.

This hotel offers exceptional value for money. The staff are very friendly making sure the guests are happy and well catered for. There is hot food available at very reasonable prices, would recommend the Pizza every time. Rooms are comfortable and very clean. Definitely the place to stay close to M4.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Seimon Warm Welcome & Good Night's Sleep
The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming and created a very professional impression on my arrival. The hotel is exactly what you would expect: clean, comfortable and much more than functional. The proximity to Cardiff (10 minutes by car to the City centre) is a great plus - and I paid much less for a room here than I would have done in a similar hotel in Cardiff. I would gladly stay here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AndyTall Pretty poor stay
I had specifically asked for a double bed in my booking. I am tall and I find a single bed very uncomfortable and rarely sleep well in one. Apparently, no double-bed rooms were available. I booked over a week in advance, but nobody told me there were no double beds available before I arrived. When I checked in, the receptionist didn't tell me then either... I gathered all my bags, went up to my room, found it had two singles... thought it was an administrative error... gathered all my bags, returned to reception... to be told there were no double beds left from a receptionist who was not ready to even entertain that the hotel had served me poorly.
I am a Gold Priority Club member, by the way...
Lesson learned: Check your booking VERY carefully and don't expect any help from the hotel staff if you get it wrong!
I am 61 years old and can do without this hassle. I will not be returning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robzzz Exceptional service
I spend a reasonable chunk of each week in hotels, and use Holiday Inn Express hotels regularly around the country. Generally I am very pleased by what I get from a HIE experience, but I have got to say that the staff at the HIE Newport were something else! The front desk staff were pleasant and professional, welcoming without being obsequious - they actually seemed like nice people!?! The hotel is probably the nicest HIE I have stayed in - I know I should not expect 5*, but certainly Newport is a lot better than the average HIE. The experience was just the same on check-out. I returned to the hotel a little later that day to meet with colleague........and only after the weekend did I realise that I had left my I-Pad in the restaurant area. One call to the hotel area though and the tablet was being packed up in a padded bag waiting for a courier to collect - nothing too much trouble. So full marks to HIE Newport all along, and it is convenient for the motorway - will definitely stay there again - but the thing that really sets it apart is the great staff and exceptional service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nicky Noo Na much more than I expected for the cost
We stayed in a twin room, that was exceptionally clean and felt like it had been recently refurbished the standard was so high! Staff were so helpful and couldn't be faulted. Breakfast was included, which I wasn't expecting and it was excellent. I would definitely use Holiday Inn Express again, and will recommend them highly to my friends and family! Thank you
