This Holiday Inn Express always offers a friendly welcome and is well situated for a 5 minute walk to Cardiff Bay and the Millennium Centre. It is part of the Docklands regeneration so is in the middle of a development of modern apartments and can be tricky to find.
The £5 parking fee grates a little as you would pretty much have to travel here by car and as such I would consider it a hidden supplement.
The rooms are clean and all the common areas, bar and restaurant are modern and airy. The pub next door does good food and is reasonably priced if you don't fancy the 5 minute walk to the Bay for a wide range of internationally themed restaurants and bars.
I use this hotel regularly and apart from the somewhat unreliable lift have never had an issue. Certainly better value than the travel inn nearby.
