The hotel is clean and comfortable, it is ideally located for the airport! The triple glazing makes the rooms surprisingly quiet and the staff are friendly. There is an excellent bus service into the city centre, which can enable you to experience Wales' Capital City! The breakfast, which was included in the price, was satisfactory.

Nice room with a very nice channel view at a very reasonable price. Though right next to the airport and a fairly busy road no noise very well insulated.We ate at the restaurant which was also reasonably priced . Not a gourmet restaurant but I had a good rump steak with fresh salad and chunky chips and my wife had... More

Cardiff Airport may be underused, hard to get to and have limited routes but the Cardiff Airport HIX turned out to be the cheapest hotel we stayed at on a 3 week tour of the Southern US and Caribbean and was was also one of the most convenient. I’ve flown from Cardiff (CWL) about 12 times but only 3 times... More

Carl was amazing at accommodating our very large squad of athletes, we take up most of the hotel. He worked so hard to make sure we all had rooms, never had a fed up tone or complained once about all the changes that were made to the lists! Thank you for making our visit so smooth running, look forward to... More

I use the Holiday Express Inns quite a lot and although this one was OK it is probably one of the worst I have stayed in for comfort. We checked it around 3.00 pm and there was one family in front of us but check in was so slow and have to say not very friendly. We were put on... More

Check in was a bit um, haphazard, I was checked in by what appeared to be a chef. I have never had that before! He was enthusiastic to the point of being a little hard to follow but no harm no foul. They seemed to be part way through some kind of renovation, as the restaurant and the small seating... More

I stayed here due to an early morning flight. The room was spotless, the staff very friendly, and even the food was very good. I say that because I've had some horrible meals at other hotels that are similarly situated- at an airport and in a location without many options. This was not one of them. Both dinner and breakfast... More

This typical Holiday Inn Express is only about a three minute walk from Cardiff Airport, or you can take the complimentary shuttle. The hotel itself is exactly what you can expect, clean rooms, complimentary breakfast. Free internet. No minibar. You will not hear too much airplane noise due to double windows, this does however also mean you can not open... More

5 star rating based on Value for money deals. You get exactly what you would expect. Clean and tidy rooms with a buffet breakfast. Hotel shuttle is efficient and long stay parking available. Staff as ever helpful, we have stayed here many times.
