A modern waterside hotel close to Cardiff Bay and the city centre, with free WiFi, on-site parking and included Express Start Breakfast With its handy location between Cardiff Bay and the city centre, and overlooking Bute East Dock, Holiday Inn Express® Cardiff Bay hotel makes a convenient base. It's a mile from Cardiff Central railway station and 10 minutes on foot from Cardiff Bay station. It's a five-minute walk to the nearest bus stop, where you can catch the Cardiff Baycar bus into the city. Cardiff International Airport (CWL) is half an hour's drive away. A 10-minute walk from the hotel, the rejuvenated Cardiff Bay area is home to restaurants and bars, plus the Doctor Who Experience and the Wales Millennium Centre. Walk 15 minutes north from the hotel, and you'll reach central Cardiff, where the sights include the Principality Stadium, formerly known as Millennium Stadium, and Cardiff Castle.

At the end of a busy day, unwind with a cold beer or a glass of wine in the hotel bar.

lovely cardiff

After a less than satisfactory check in , our grievances were soon amended and this turned out to be a lovely stay. Most of the staff were courteous and happy to help. I would commend the management on the swift action taken regarding our grievance.

Ideal location

Well placed for visiting Cardiff, approx 10 mins walk to either the bay or city centre. Hotel very clean, room was comfortable & overlooked Bute Dock, little noisy from nearby traffic (but only because we had windows open). Breakfast was good, plenty of choice & replenished constantly. Staff all polite & friendly. There is a £6 charge for car park payable on check out, however you can park all day on departure day, should you choose to. Definitely recommend & use again

Don't stay here

This hotel was not the quality that I expect from this chain. The rooms where like a cheap motel. The price was incredibly high, but we were in town for an international rugby match, so that was expected. And regardless of what the site says this is not in or even near the center of Cardiff. The other problems would have been easier to deal with if it hadn't been so far away from everything.

Very comfortable

I felt very welcome at the hotel. The entire staff was not only courteous but extremely helpful. Given the fact that there was a large convention in the area and the hotel was totally booked, that didn't stop the staff from making me feel very welcome. I would definitely stay there again.

Its is basicaly fine...

The hotel is fine. The staff was really kind. Our room was clean and well equiped. The location was perfect: 5 min to the bay, 10 min to the City centre or/and the bus station. But: the breakfast was very boring: same meal (omlet, bacon, muffin, toast) on every morning.

Clean friendly hotel. Perfect location for Cardiff Bay and a £5 taxi into the centre. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty if basic. Superb value for a stay in Cardiff. PS Car park is £3 per night.
