Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TLC26 Amazing greeting
This hotel has to be one of the nicest ones I have stayed in for awhile. After a terrible journey down in very bad weather the greeting from Jay on reception was just what I needed. Friendly and willing to help. I am not surprised it has won the award for best hotel. The rooms were beautifully clean and up to date décor. This hotel is certainly worth a visit

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dc01 Comfortable room, free parking, easy access to M4
The hotel is just off the M4 at Newport, easy to find and has a huge, free car park.
The hotel offers evening meals although a better choice of meals can be found at the pub next door.
Friendly staff, but bar service can be a little slow.

We had to book 2 rooms a week apart and were very impressed staff gave us ajoining rooms without having to ask. An ironing board was quickly produced when my son needed to iron his shirt. Clean, well presented rooms-thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rossco34 Good bed, but bigger is better.
Bed was ok but could do with being a little bigger. Also no bacon with cooked breakfast..this is a disaster!. Everything else was good.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel whilst being on a training course there.
The hotel is very modern and spotlessly clean. My room was lovely although I did struggle with getting the heating to a suitable warmth for myself but had a wonderful nights sleep. A huge easy to use flat screen TV and was generally really comfortable.
The breakfast was fine and my only complaint was that there was no bacon but the rest of the food was excellent.
Although the bar menu for evening meals is extreemly limited what I had seemed prepared with care and the presentation was very nice and it all tasted really nice.
My main positive comment about this hotel is how wonderful the staff were. Every member of staff that I saw or spoke to had impeccable manners and had a constant smile on their face and were always checking if guests were happy and satisfied. This is such a refreshing change compaired to some places I have stayed.
My only complaint was that the hotel was really busy with a coachload of children that screamed and ran around all the time whilst I was eating my evening meal. This forced me to retire to my room with a pot of tea to get some peace and quiet, which I have to say was really quiet . Obviously thats not a complaint about the hotel or staff, just the lack of discipline from their parents.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chellelou4 Excellent staff. Clean Hotel
Reception staff were friendly and very helpful. Hotel nice and clean. Room lovely with a comfortable bed, although as a family we were also using the sofa bes with was very hard and uncomfortable. Breakfast was Ok, nothing special. No bacon. Scrambled eggs not very nice. Selection of cereals, fruit, croissants/muffins but if you prefer cooked breakfast there was not much choice.
The pub next door was ok for an evening meal although best to book in advance as it was very busy and the Italian around the corner was fully booked.
Easy check in/ check out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by swimdad excellent service
This is the 4th time we have stayed here and would recommend it to anyone, It is out of the town so it is nice and quiet at weekends, the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and local services (Buses, Taxis, trains). as we were going into Cardiff for the rugby and didnt want to use the car. good bus service, on time and about 40 minutes.
The breakfast is really good just the usual holiday inn express complaint of why no bacon?
The rooms are really clean and comfortable with all you need and a lovely shower.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sarahj87 Affordable easy to get to
Nice for short stay, room clean and practical, good wheelchair access - great shower room. Friendly staff easy to get to but free fin traffic noise. Great pub next door and plenty of parking. Breakfast only let down, although free would rather have paid for something nice. Eggs were over cooked, sausages tiny and no bacon.

Receptionist was brilliant, very welcoming and also visited us all at breakfast and wished us well on our course that day. Unfortunately I did not get her name.
Surprised to see no fried eggs,bacon, tomatoes or hash browns at breakfast as I personally hate beans. However I thought the scrambled eggs were amazing!
Very good value for money, showers hot and no puddles!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bucketyr Booking
The stay at your hotel was wonderful. However, this was marred by a badly laid out website, and then when I needed information before I arrived, I couldn't find a telephone number to contact the hotel on. A n e-mail address is no good if it won't be answered for 24hrs, when you are only 3 hours drive away, and can't find a phone number on your laptop.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby76543298 Pretty good - except irons
This hotel is pretty good overall and I've used it several times. As a business traveller I frequently need to use a hotel iron & ironing boards. Both are extremely tired and most irons leak despite being reported to reception. They WILL ruin your shirts. Take a travel iron.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tonto1 Excellent stay, which confrmed our faith in this hotel.
We have stayed here many times before. The last couple of visits were less than brilliant - no fault of the staff, but caused by inconsiderate fellow guests e.g. banging doors and generally larking about until the early hours.
This time it was back to 'business as usual' the staff/management were up to their usual excellent standard as was the overall experience. No rowdy parties, which meant a great nights sleep.
The Holiday Inn Express brand is brilliant value and nearly always delivers great quality. The only downside is that it can be a victim of it's own success and end up hosting large stag/hen parties - great for them, but not so good for families seeking a restful night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jud33 Really great place to stay
We have just had an excellent stay (2 adults). Hallways have recently had new carpet and have been painted and the whole hotel looks in fantastic condition. The staff were very welcoming & informative. Drinks at the bar are pricey (but then they usually are in a hotel) The Dragonfly literally next door serves amazing food and normal pub prices - if you go on Dragonfly website and get a code you get 20% off your meal (they take the code number off ur phone if you don't print it#. Comfy beds at hotel, brilliant bathroom. Breakfast was a great choice #help yourself) scrambled egg not great nor orange juices but other juices & all other selections are faultless. very handy for Cardiff. excellent value & would def choose again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KevL Quiet, comfortable and super helpful and friendly staff
Stay here regularly on business.
Always a freindly welcome, prompt and efficient service and nothing is too much trouble.
Rooms are clean, spacious and quiet.
Breakfast is plentiful, well stocked and never too busy.
Evening meals are good, though if you want a bit more variety there is a pub and an Italian restaurant nearby.
If you fancy a walk in the evening there is the National Trust property just over the road with good gardens open to the public.
