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.

Holiday Inn Cardiff
By amb999
Really lovely nights stay overlooking the millenium stadium, hotel although busy you could not hear any noise form the corridors or other rooms. I used room service which was very quick and the [More] order was perfect with great food., Staff were very nice and the hotel itsself was clean and tidy both inside and out. [Less]

warm welcome (good) warm bedroom (bad)
By rene47
As usual with IHG stays all professional and efficient / effective, without being exceptional. Nice place to stay, close to city amenities and delivering on expectations Only two issues - the [More] barman was not the friendliest (although admittedly busy) - the room aircon temperature control was not adjustable and so night 1 was uncomfortably hot, and night 2 was switched off with window (and curtains open), so an early dawn"wake up call" Requires improvement for individual customer comfort [Less]
Newport October
By Sonerousbass2
Good straight forward hotel accommodation which comfortably meets all that you need for a couple of over night mid week stays. Clean, comfortable facility with friendly helpful staff - excellent. [Less]
Short stay
By Martin 243
We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Newport for 3 days, The quality of the hotel was good, the only minor cripe would be the selection of food at breakfast was limited, apart from that was realy fine. [Less]
Great Staff
By Agribiotech
Staff warm and friendly, helped make a sort stay pleasant. [Less]
Good servive
By BizzyD
It was a good hotel to stay at. The noticeable minor point would be the breakfast which is not great but kind of what you can expect from a Holday Inn. [Less]
Acceptable for price
By Jamest250
I chose this hotel based purely on price - it was the cheapest IHG hotel in the area on the date I stayed. The room was clean, although a little dated / tired. The beds were comfortable, and the [More] bathroom was fine although didn't care for the shower curtain. The room curtains were annoying in that when they were drawn they hung over half of the desk space making it awkward to work in the room. They could have been shorter and still done the job without getting in the way. Also, the room was too cool for my liking, and although I turned the wall heater on, no heat came out despite the lights all being on. It was cold enough to affect my sleep that night. I don't think I would have got a better quality room at the price anywhere else, but I did have higher expectations from IHG. [Less]
A real find
By Jodean62
Most people staying in Cardiff seem to look to the city centre. They are really missing out - this hotel is a short walk from Cardiff Bay with all of its restaurants, bars and events. It is also [More] only 10/15 minutes from the city by train/bus. Parking is really cheap and safe compared with the city. The rooms are clean and bright and the staff are friendly and helpful and the prices are 'budget'. [Less]
