We spent 2 nights at this hotel in May when we were going to a wedding at The Wharf next door. The hotel was fine and what would be usually expected of the Holiday Inn chain - clean rooms, helpful staff. The breakfast is fine though we were disappointed there wasn't any bacon on offer. The location of the hotel was very handy for our purposes but the wharf it was on did seem as if it had been regenerated a few years ago but then not really used much since and seemed rather deserted whilst we were there.
I have previously stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in the Albert Dock in Liverpool which I thought was a great hotel and would definitely return to if I were in Liverpool again, however, if I were going to Cardiff for any reason other than a wedding at The Wharf next door I think I would find a different hotel to stay in.
