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.

Good value

Whilst the location is a few miles outside barry, it is an economical place to stay when visiting relatives in Barry. [Less]

Regular visitor to this hotel
By Master of Moaning
I like this hotel, its in a good location, the staff and friendly and warm and I have a good laugh with them. The food is pretty good, try the Homemade Pie! They have a couple of Guest Ales at the [More] Bar as well which is nice. I had a problem this time with the room (Exec). The room was furnished with a glass fronted fridge. When you tiurned the lights off for sleep the Fridge illuminated the whole room! I do wish when Managers based outside the Hotel make these decisions, they do come and stay in the room for the night before the sell it to the customer. The staff at the Hotel were fantastic and we had a really good laugh. The Maintenance man wwas on his way up to the room as I was checking out. I guess I could have complained eralier (in the night) but then you wake up half the rooms along the corridor, with opening and closing doors etc, etc (I've been there) and its often better to be less selfish to others trying to sleep than getting everything your way.
