I haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn Express for a few years and my memories of the standard of the rooms were higher than we encountered. The room was tatty and not really quite up to the mark. The reception staff just handed us the key and never attempted to direct us to the room which they normally do. Television broke down but after half an hour somebody did come and replace it so that was acceptable. Internet printout said charge of seven pounds even though it is up everywhere that it is free. When I checked with receptionist she said they didn't know how to remove that from the print out. A simple thing but if it were me I would make sure I found out how. Such a shame for such a big hotel chain to let the standard of their rooms slip. Location was okay for Cardiff Bay.
