I suspect that every hotel in Newport will also be full, well, anything other than a total fleapit.

Have you thought about maybe Port Talbot. There is a hotel, The Grand, right opposite Port Talbot Station. Cardiff is about 40 mins on the train and the last train back to Port Talbot is about 11 o'clock.

May be further than you wanted but I think at this stage its going to be grab what you can.

My hubby and his mates were over for one of the FA Cup finals and stayed in Porthcawl and said it was fairly easy to get in and out of Cardiff via train

I don't know how your husband did it Mandy but there hasn't been a train station in Porthcawl since the 1960s. Closest is Bridgend and then its bus or taxi to Porthcawl.

oops, the Gurkha just dropped Mandy s husband in it !!!!!!,,,

Have you tried the Caerphilly tourist office ?? good train links only 20 minutes from Cardiff, there's a travel lodge, a premier inn plus a few B+Bs around the town...ps if you do intend looking at Caerphilly, make sure it's Caerphilly town you look at, as Caerphilly is also a County, and you could end up miles from Caerphilly town

There is a premier inn near Barry train station. Barry is about 20 minutes on the train.

Alternatively a few B&B's in Penarth which is only a about a £10 taxi journey. I think the Cefn Mably pub has a few rooms as a starter.

I have found one room available in Cardiff but I suspect not for long. It is at the Novotel Cardiff Centre Hotel but it is a ridiculous price - £309 for the night. Doubt if it will be around for long even at that price.

Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Bay wants £300 per night, however Holiday Inn Express at Cardiff airport is £175. There is an express bus that take 30 mins £8.00 return to the City Centre, runs ever 20 mins untill late (Taxi £25 -£30) Its a nice hotel nice bar and food and will have a good buzz for a big match
