Not a bad hotel all in all. Very good location if you have a car as very close to all the things to do in Cardiff such as St David's, Mermaid Quay, Millennium centre etc.
Breakfast wasn't bad as included in the price, a few hot items, tea, coffee, cereal, a lot of choice really.
A few bad points: The pillows were very flat and we only had 1 each, there wasn't any 'backup' pillows, although I'm sure these could have been arranged if I had asked.
The fire alarm went off at 1am for a long period of time and then wen't off again. Not the hotel's fault as a drunk party had set it off but no communication form the hotel as regards to safety.
Very good price for Cardiff
A very nice man on the front desk was prompy and friendly and was a credit to Holiday inn.
Parking was £5 a day - but this is cheaper than other areas in cardiff.
