                  9.6

                  Good room with a good view.

                  Breakfast was not really up to usual Holiday Inn standard with only grapefruit for the fruit option plain yoghurt and a narrow selection of cereals but not bad if you happened to want what was on offer.

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  Enjoyable two night city break stay. Great location and pleasant staff

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Took a boat trip round The Bay. Explored the Bay on foot.Walked around the bay, visiting the various buildings. Went to St. Fagins by local bus. Went shopping. Went to the Theatre.

                  The hotel was excellent except, we were not too enamoured with the "wet room" style bathrooms. (Personal choice)

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Staff friendly and professional.Manageress particularly welcoming. At breakfast tables quickly cleaned as soon as guests vacated.

                  No, the hotel experience exceeded our expectations.

                • Single
                  7.4

                  My main reason for visiting Cardiff was to see Michael Ball in "Haispray".I saw the show three times and was very impressed by The Millenium Centre and by Cardiff as a whole.

                  As an elderly disabled customer I would have prefered my room to be cleaned earlier in the day. I need to rest in the afternoon and on two occaisions I had to make my own bed and forego any cleaning.

                  we went to cosmo resturant for a meal and just have a night out

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  It is a good, clean place and centrally located, if you want to dine out (Cardiff Bay).

                  Excellent location for the Bay. Clean and functional, so brilliant if you want a no frills base to stay.

                • Group of friends
                  7.8

                  Good location. Helpful and pleasant staff. Car park, as not all city hotels have one and this is important for me. Very nice, inexpensive pub/restaurant next door. Hotel receptionist helpful when we enquired about it. Reception also very helpful on arrival. It was lunchtime and we wanted to watch British Grand Prix. Receptionist found television station and ordered in pizza for us.

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  Local to cardiff bay where my daughter was graduating in the millenium centre, beautiful location right on the canal with a great pub next door, staff were very friendly and helpfull, hotel room was very clean but small.

                  9.2

                  The hotel was clean and quiet. The outlook over the old dock area was pleasant and the area tidy. While a reasonable walk, Cardiff City was accessible. Staff were helpful.

                • Group of friends
                  7.8

                  The Inn was in a quiet area, away from the bustle of the Centre of Cardiff
