Parking at Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Bay

I am staying at HIE soon, they charge £3 per day parking, would i have a problem parking in other car parks around hotel that are not owned by them. I notice there is another 3 or 4 for other premises.

The hotel is in a residential area, so the car parks you can see on a mapping tool are probably mainly private ones for the flats nearby.

The Wharf pub (also some offices) is just over the canal, which has a car park but I'm not sure if there's a time limit on parking there or if it's monitored. Being next door to a hotel that charges for parking (which I wasn't aware it did) I suspect there is both otherwise every hotel resident would use it.

You could also park on Schooner Way, but if you arrive on a weekday it will be busy.

Don't park in the residential side streets - you will not be popular.

I have been looking for a hotel in Cardiff for October, & it seems that most of them charge for parking ( even ones that didn't previously, charge now ). I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express by the nec in Birmingham recently & they charged £7 for parking. Its outragious, they are a hotel, how do they think people are going to get there.

The Travelodge at Alantic Wharf has free parking. You park in the Red dragon centre car park and then have your ticket stamped by the hotel.

It's been very easy except for when our last visit there coincided with the first few days of the Harry Potter film. We still managed to park.
