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!

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.

Stayed over before heading to gold in Celtic Manor so a more cost effective stay before a big blow out couple of days.

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.

We had a lovely experience at the hotel albeit a short stay. From check in to departure staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. I will stay there again and will recommend it to friends. Excellent value for money. Breakfast was lovely.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tessle Fabulous value
We stayed 1 night and I have to say it exceeded my expectations. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and pound for Pound value for money this was excellent the rooms was very comfortable with air con and a choice of pillows too and clean fresh towels.
Breakfast was included in our price, the only draw back is the lack of choice for cooked food, only scrambled egg, no bacon. Plenty of continental style food on offer.
Staff very friendly especially at check in and checkout 10 out of 10 for me

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Welshi5 Peaceful, Quiet and a great location.
Booked a family room which was great for what we needed. The Holiday Inn Express Newport is close to the main road but was surprisingly quiet. The staff were really friendly and the Hotel was really comfortable. You're not far from Newport town and only ten minutes drive from the Park and Ride Cardiff East which is excellent value for money. Make the most of it and book a stay at this hotel. The food is really good but there is a pub next door for those of you who arrive late and want a really good meal, The hotel provides snacks after 9 pm but if you're hungry the pub is a good option,
The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the staff are happy to help you with anything that you need.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dippsy Generally a very good experience
I have to admit that I had my reservations before I came to this place. However, the hotel was a pleasant surprise.
There are plenty of things to do around the area. This made our stay even better.
The only things I can suggest are the following ...
Firstly, the doors are paper-thin. We were able to hear everything that was going on outside - Even people walking by and knocking on doors at 4 o'clock in the morning! Could perhaps need to an embarrassing situation!
The beds were not particularly comfortable although they are acceptable. Having said that I have a very comfortable bed at home and am very picky!
a better selection of breakfast would be most welcome. Particularly mushrooms and perhaps tomato juice in the morning.
I hope this constructive feedback is accepted in the way it was intended. Otherwise, would definitely recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sdaua Excellent room - clean and comfortable
Booked room at last minute in order to visit relative in hospital. Asked for connecting rooms to accommodate family of 5. Really pleased to receive a phone call in the morning after booking online from hotel to confirm that two connecting rooms had been booked - this was appreciated as it meant we had one less thing to worry about on our journey down.
Arrived at the hotel late at night and were greeted by quick booking in and welcoming clean rooms. Sofa bed had been prepared in one of the rooms and the rooms were cool on a hot night (AC must have been turned on earlier) which meant we all had a good nights sleep. Beds were very comfortable and clean bathrooms. Especially liked the door arrangement in the bathroom - really handy with 3 children!! Breakfast was limited for a vegetarian however it was sufficient.
Would highly recommend this hotel for the welcome offered, attention to detail, politeness of staff and the excellent cleanliness of the rooms.
