Very efficient check in by Stacey. Great room, well kept. You can see that they pay attention to maintenance and HK overall. Did not eat in thus cannot comment about food. Checked out by Lucy ( Again a delight). Well done and keep going.

Perfect location for rugby and touring the castle and park...but (and it's a big but) two things completely ruined the stay. 1. They seem to turn the AC off at night and though the fan keeps blowing it turns to almost warm air. The room would go from a very comfortable 21 when you went sleep to 25/26 at about... More

The hotel has parking at £10 per night. The rooms are clean and spacious and the breakfast is really good with a wide range of choice available. It is in a great location to tour the city and easy to find. Staff are very courteous and the bar food is really good

This was our first stay in a holiday inn. We were very impressed. The reception staff was absolutely fantastic, a huge asset to the hotel. Special thanks to Lucy for her tourist advice and friendly welcome. Our room was a little small but what we expected. The room and bathroom was very clean, which is always good. If we were... More

Attended a day long meeting here and had lunch in the lounge bar. The decor is clean and modern throughout. I really liked the extras with tea and coffee such as nuts, dried fruits, smoothies, cookies and fresh hot waffles. The bar food itself (a ceaser salad) was delicious and good value for money and in all departments service was... More

As a company we have to stay where we are booked into. When in Cardiff its always the Holiday Inn. Located opposite the castle and Stadium, and a short walk to town its the perfect location for us. The staff are friendly, helpful and always seem to enjoy there job, which often you don't get. The room I was in... More

The hotel is located across from the Cardiff Castle, right in the city centre and at the rear are the rugby stadiums, Everything you need is within walking distance. The reception staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, comfortable and a reasonable size (but could do with updating) with space for a small side table and desk.... More
