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.

Expensive, but loved it
By Pinkangel2527
I had an amazing time staying at the Cardiff bay branch. The staff are very helpful and informative, even showing me on a map how to get to local attractions. Fantastic placement, it was a ten [More] minute walk to the red dragon centre where we spent the evening dining out and bowling and twenty minute walk into Cardiff cirpty centre and shopping malls. Some kind of building work going on along the bay walking area into the town, so unfortunately didn't get to experience that side, but the walk wasn't unpleasant the way we went. Lovely evening stroll down the bay side in the evening though. Weather wasn't great when we were there, so would love to come back in the summer and experience the place with nice weather. Paid for the car park, which feels a bit naughty really, but you are allowed to park up the day before and leave when your ready the day you check out. Breakfast was amazing, much better than last years, as they have reintroduced bacon!! Lovely bacon too. Sausages cooked perfectly, scrambled egg was delicious, also had cereals, yoghurt, toast, fruit, muffins, croissants, beans, coffee, juices, everything you could imagine. But the staff on the breakfast duty could maybe smile a bit, never heard any of them even speak to anyone? (sorry, but my only grumble about any staff there). Overall I loved the hotel, but I would never pay full price for a room, it's very expensive! But if one comes up again on offer I would snap it up lol Oh and free wifi is a great idea, no one should be charged for wifi these days. [Less]
