Having read some of the more negative reviews we visited Cardiff expecting a few problems. We were pleasantly surprised- the Hotel was lovely! The staff were helpful when we arrived, with a plate of still warm welsh cakes at reception to greet us. Delicious! The family room was spacious and overlooked the river. It was clean and had everything we needed. It was also quiet so sleep was not a problem. The bathroom was a good size. If we needed extra anything the Hotel happily supplied - eg extra milks, a toothbrush, newspaper etc.
The breakfast was first class too with everything you might want available and well prepared and cooked. We also had room service food and ate in the bar too. The food was excellent although it is all a bit more expensive via room service, and there is a surcharge too.
Having gone by train, parking was not an issue. It is so easy to walk the 5 min walk to the main shopping area and the Castle is just across the road. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional, and I hope this review will redress the balance! Thank you Holiday Inn!!! I have already recommended this Hotel to a friend who is booking now.
