    Location was marvelous, just 5 minutes to Cardiff Central train station by walking. Excellent for one night. Mango House served dishes within 150 meters off the hotel. Here we were very close to few of our favourite spots such as Principality Stadium.

    You know what you are getting and it is the rooms are warm, well kept and the location is excellent.

    Car park is a bit small/crmaped and no gym, but Bute park is opposite for running during the day.

    First time in the holiday inn I stay in cardiff often so when booking I knew location was great so close to the main shopping avenues and across from the castle and bute park so we had a lovely view to wake up to. Room was huge and very clean and had everything we needed.

    Arrived at 1.45 and as check in wasnt until 2pm were told to have a seat in the bar until the room was ready and someone would come and get us not that big a deal only after 45mins no one had come near us so when we went back to the desk our room was indeed ready.annoying that we had been told to wait for someone to get us then clearly forgotten about when we had people waiting on us. Ordered room service and the full order didnt arrive and what did arrive wasnt exactly what was described on the menu

    Hello, I stayed at your hotel one night only and found the bedroom too hot for comfort, rang down to reception and they sent up a fan by which time we discovered another fan already in the room, so must be a problem with the heating. phoned twice and asked to change room but was never taken up on the request As the windows hardly open and of course with the noise of traffic we suffered a very uncomfortably hot night and had to havee the fan on all night - more noise. A bit disappointed but the breakfast was quite nice and didnt think it was worth complaining in the morning as we were on our way home.

    Very good

    The reception staff were very friendly, room had a great view of the castle and park, great location for shopping.

    The bed linen was not changed and the bed, when it was remade, was messy.

    Perfect

    It's location was brilliant, right opposite the Castle and the Waterbus stop so we could get into Cardiff Bay in a relaxing and interesting way. Could also go for a walk in Bute Park but then the shops, bars and restaurants were a five minute walk away too. Although we couldn't get a twin room for the first night the staff were great and Daniel organised our rooms to be swapped into twins and arranged for our bags to be moved too. Breakfast was lovely with lots of choice and good value. Would definitely visit again.

    Space in the carpark was at a premium, but we were lucky enough to get the last space on the Friday night.
