                  On arrival the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room spacious, well maintained and comfortable. Every effort was made by all staff to make the stay as pleasant as possible. Despite being an airport hotel no aircraft noise was heard at any time

                  Extremely quiet, empty, great value, new, clean, good breakfast.Happy to have us there for very little money. Better to fill a room at a good deal than to have it empty and earn nothing, well done holiday inn.

                • Older travelers

                  The hotel is nicely presented the rooms are very clean and comfortable, what we do like is the breakfast included in the price and the added bonus of the breakfast being available from 04.00am most other hotels which include breakfast in the price do not start until 06.00am by which time most visitors have left for the airport, well done Holiday Express Cardiff

                  There is nothing we did not like about the hotel.We will be booking again for sure the next time we have an early morning flight from Cardiff Airport.

                  It was very convenient for a flight from the airport as it is right next to the airprort. The hotel was comfortable and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served very early for those with early flights.

                  The staff were so poilite and helpful - the hotel convenient to the airport - loved the way we were able to order in a takeaway (using the hotel phone) and enjoy eating in the restaurant area taking advantage of the crockery and cutlery at no extra charge - and the staff cleared up after us!
