“Great value hotel.”
Reviewed 8 June 2013 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights during a cardiff stopover. The check in was fast and efficient. The rooms were clean and spacios as was the bathroom. The complimentary breakfast was a real bonus. The hotel is a short drive from Cardiff centre.

stayed for one night with my daughter on the 26th May 2013, paid £38.27 for a family room on the 2nd floor with a view of the Runway.
check-in was swift, we arrived at 9.30pm, I paid £24 for a weeks parking and transfers to and from airport, you keep your car keys on you.
Quiet, clean room, we were down for breakfast at 4.30am and had prebooked the shuttle for 5.20am which was waiting for us, 2 mins and your in the terminal building.
on return at 5pm the shuttle bus was outside waiting for us.
perfect and will use again when flying early from Cardiff.

Room Tip: if you like planes ask for a view of the runway

We booked this hotel the night before we flew to Cyprus. It cost us £69 for 2 Adults and 1 Child for 1 night, breakfast, parking for the week and transfers to and from the airport. What a bargain. It is very close to airport and we watched planes landing and taking off but due to the excellent glazing there was no noise in room. Also a plus point for those who need it this hotel has smoking rooms! a rarity these days.

Stopped here twice when on business in Cardiff. Very good value for money, both times have had a room overlooking the apron and runway which is geek heaven for me! Friendly staff and considering the food in the bar is nuked its not bad..
Would recommend it to anyone on business or flying out of Cardiff.

We booked the Holiday Inn for our return flight as we would not land until 3am. We had a good deal for room & parking for 1 week at £60. When we arrived a mini bus dropped us to the airport, service was really quick and efficient. On return the bus came to pick us up as soon as we rang reception so we weren't stuck waiting in the rain for too long! When we arrived they offered us to help ourselves to a light breakfast where we ate plenty of toast & croissants! My boyfriend went back for a fry up that morning too! The room and ensuite were really nice..only problem I had was finding a plug near the mirror to do my hair! Seeing as the hotel is located literally on the airport we could not hear a thing! Would definitely return.

We used this hotel for one night on returning from our holiday via Cardiff airport as our flight was due in near midnight . We also took advantage of the car parking facility they provide when you make a room booking. The service provided is very good and includes free transfer to/from the airport and a complementary breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable and we all had a great night's sleep. Well done to all the staff!

I booked 7 family rooms for a junior netball team who were travelling from North Wales for a tournament. We normally stay in the HI Express at Newport but as this event was originally meant to be in RAF St Athan this hotel was ideally situated. The event was moved to Cardiff city centre but this hotel was still only a 20 minute drive away and at £43 per room per night offered excellent value for money.
Sat nav directions left us short of the hotel with no obvious road signs but a call to one of our party already in the hotel set us in the right direction
As the families were travelling separately I emailed the hotel details of who was in each room. Check in was smooth, but despite my email each room was only set up for two people, soon remedied however by a quick visit from housekeeping to make up the sofa beds. Rooms are a good size and clean. A nice touch was the purple light in the bathroom which could be left on at night to prevent stumbling around in the dark.
There was another group of netballers occupying 23 rooms that weekend and the social space around the reception/bar area was well used but easily accommodated us all.
Several in our party ordered food from the hotel on the Friday night, they said it was adequate but not great. Others ordered takeaways from the information supplied by the hotel.
I always enjoy a HI breakfast, A good selection of cereals, pastries, juices and hot beverages.
I would stay here again.
