We decided as we had to be at Cardiff Airport very early in the morning that we would book into this hotel and make use of the parking for 14 nights as well. We arrived about 4 pm and had a lovely room with a view of the runway and airport building which was literally a stones throw away. Nice... More

Stayed here recently for 2 nights with my boyfriend who was based in Cardiff for the weekend with work. Location wise the hotel is situated right across the road from Cardiff Airport which is really handy if you arrive on a late flight like I did.Our room was very spacious, comfortable and clean I could not fault it whatsoever.

Warning - this company seems to have a worldwide policy to quietly dupe people into smoking rooms. This was our second recent experience with the HI Express, and I would not bother to review them if I had not had two bad experiences in a row. I prefer to expend my time on positive reviews so that good businesses get... More

Upon arrival we were informed that thanks to the AA's flight extras, we had the wrong night booked. Mass panic all round as it was about 7pm and we had to check in at the airport at 5.30am. After some juggling around the staff managed to get us a room, and were very friendly and were frankly great about the... More

An honest hotel. Fair price, no luxury and breakfast included. A typical honest airport hotel. The rooms are reasonable, quiet, and a reasonable restaurant with “standard” dishes with nothing special. Enough to spend a night between air flights or meetings. Very close to the airport – 5 minutes walking -.

I found all the staff helpful and polite, we booked in with no bother and we were told how to use the key-card to open the room door but not to put it in a holder to get the electrics to work but a quick call to reception sorted that, so really not a problem ! Now to the room... More

I had an early morning meeting at Cardiff Airport so I drove down the day before. Room looked tired with stains on the desk chair, marks on the wall. Flat screen TV worked well. Bed soft. Free Wi Fi worked well but slow, a speed upgrade is available if you pay extra. Evening meal and breakfast were average. Cutlery had... More

Stayed here the night before we flew out of Cardiff Airport. The Accommodation was spotless and the staff extremely helpful. It is located so that the trip to the airport via shuttle bus is only a couple of minutes. The hotel allows takeaway deliveries and provides and adequate complimentary breakfast. Definitely stay again if we are going to fly out... More
