Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Airport
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Rhoose
Reviewed 4 November 2013

This hotel is right at the airport but there is excellent soundproofing - we had a great view of the runway but kept missing planes as we couldn't hear them!
It is a functional hotel with all the usual commodities, and was clean, comfortable and warm. The staff were lovely and very helpful - my hairdryer was smoking and by the time I returned from breakfast, a new one was in place!
Breakfast was fine - cereals, fruit, selection of drinks, some hot food and pastries - with plenty to set you up for the day.]
We stayed here as a hotel in Cardiff centre would've been twice the price. It was easy to drive in to Cardiff, about 10 mins away, and was handy for Barry Island too.
Will definitely be back should we visit Cardiff again.

We stayed at this hotel the night before and night after a holiday from Cardiff airport. I expected a basic service considering it is an airport hotel, but it thoroughly exceeded expectations on cleanliness, comfort, food and definitely service.

The rooms were much more than double glazed so we were not disturbed by the airport despite being nice and close. The rooms were fairly spacious and clean.

The food at breakfast time was amazing with lots of choice. The included buffet started at 4am with the addition of hot food from 6am.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. The courtesy bus doesn't run too frequently to the airport before 7am and on return it only shuttles once an hour but the hotel lay on a complimentary taxi service if you don't fit in with the bus times. Check out is generous being midday.

I would go as far as to recommend this hotel for people needing to stay in this area and not using the airport as it was a really nice stay.

Have stayed at this holiday inn several times it's excellent for the airport and central without being right in the middle of Cardiff for everything. Rooms comfortable with everything you need. I've stayed recently for a week and would definitely recommend.
Breakfast is varied with selection of both hot and cold. Evening meals served till 21.30 and have vastly improved over the last year or so. So after a long business day or leisure day everything you need without having to drive.
As a singer business lady staying there I feel safe which to me is very important.
Staff very warm and welcoming
And free wifi

We have stayed here many times when flying out of Cardiff. This time we parked and stayed over on our return. Unfortunately on our arrival -Wed 16 October approx. 11am- the young boy on reception gave us & two other travellers the wrong information on getting the bus to the airport & then was quite rude to all of us, he and the female on duty at that time need a lesson in Customer service. However on our return -Thurs 24 October 2am- transport back to hotel was perfect, the gentleman on reception was excellent the room was clean and comfortable as always & we will use this venue again

Dear Madam,

Thank you very much for your comments here on tripadvisor.
Would you be so kind to get in touch with me with a description of the two members of staff as I had four members of staff working on that day and if you could let me know in depth what was said.
I would be very grateful if you could send it to deputy@exhicardiffairport.co.uk so I can investigate what happened.
I am glad that you will use us again in the future.

We stopped over night for the rugby. Staff were very helpful and multi task the reception and bar.
Rooms were modern, clean and perfect for a good overnight stay.
Even though you are right next to the airport you cannot hear a single plane! Super thick double glazing!
Breakfast was very basic but did the job for what we needed. Parking is free and there are bus stops right outside the hotel. Highly recommend the Cardiff Express bus into city centre!
