Featured Cardiff Hotels

Be our guest at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Cardiff. You'll soon take to the friendly Welsh capital, whether cozying up in a pub in the city center or sauntering along cutting-edge Cardiff Bay.

Sitting high on a hill, Cardiff Castle has watched over the Welsh capital since Roman times. For fine castle views, take a relaxed stroll through Bute Park on the banks of the River Taff. Entry to the permanent collections at Cardiff's big museums is free. The highlight is the National Museum Cardiff, where you'll find Bronze Age gold, meteorites and French Impressionist art. Our Cardiff hotels are close to the city's showpiece, Cardiff Bay, with architectural wonders like the Millennium Center and the National Assembly for Wales (Senedd).

You'll find everything you need for a picnic in the park at the Victorian Central Market, from raisin-studded Welsh cakes to cheese from the valleys. Join locals at a pub in the city center for hearty Welsh fare, Brains beer and banter. Our hotels in Cardiff are close to Cardiff Bay, which is strikingly illuminated after dark. Work up your appetite for a good-value fish supper with a wander along the waterfront. Party in the lively pubs and clubs along St. Mary and Church streets and in Cardiff Bay. Our Cardiff hotels are within easy reach of the architecturally innovative Millennium Center, which hosts free lunchtime concerts most days. For a lingering taste of Wales, shop for creamy fudge and hand-carved Welsh love spoons in the city center's Victorian arcades.

Stay at our hotels in Cardiff to enjoy this year-round city of song. Come in summer for the Welsh Proms and free gigs at the outdoor Cardiff Festival. Visit in spring, when daffodils sway in Cardiff's parks, or November, when fireworks soar above the city.

Poor breakfasts, poor checkout service and slow.
By Sedge1
Poor breakfasts, poor checkout service and slow. I'm not interested in writing more than that - doubt I'll ever go back. Cooked breakfast selections are dull, bland and tasteless. [Less]
Great hotel but no traditional breakfast

Leisure Trip to Cardiff
By Pete150
We had a very nice stay in the hotel. The breakfast was the best, the fried eggs were perfectly cooked. Everything was great with the exception of the rather small bathroom, but there is not much [More] that could be done about that. One small point - the maids cleaning the rooms were using a cart with a big container made of cloth to collect the used towels etc. The interior of the cloth bin was very badly stained and soiled and made us feel a little ill on our way down for breakfast. [Less]
