We flew from Cardiff for the first time Sat 31st August and as usual we choose a hotel to stay at the night before, its just makes things more relaxed.
Having stayed at other Holiday Inn hotels by airports we again took what has always been a safe bet and booked the HIE Cardiff Airport. We booked well in advance and got a great price for a room to accommodate 2 adults, a child and infant.
Upon arrival which was just after 2300hrs check in was straight forward and hassle free, luggage trolleys easily available to help with our mountain of luggage. The lift was small but didnt present an issue. The room was clean and made up as per prior request.
Bathroom clean and adequate with usual HI extras if required.
Beds comfortable which helped for a good nights sleep.
In the morning the inclusive buffet breakfast was surprising good quality much better than expected and quite enjoyable.
We then asked about the shuttle as prior to booking we inquired about it as its vital with all the luggage we had. The hotel has a shuttle but not always drivers available it would seem, we were advised that a bus goes every 20 past the hour but when the person on reception recalled what we had to carry plus children they said they would arrange the hotel shuttle for our requested time of 10am.
Upon check out all was very straight forward and we were pleasantly surprised that the hotel arranged a taxi for us as they had some issue with the shuttle driver availability.
For us this was the icing on the cake as it went above and beyond what we expected and ensured everything went as smooth as possible.
I would certainly stay at this hotel again if we fly from Cardiff airport (which isn't so good) and recommend it for those what want a good, clean comfortable cost effective hotel.
