The staff in the Cardiff airport holiday inn were lovely. Collapse

Good value as it only costs a little more to park and stay than to park at the airport.(provided there isn't a big event on in Cardiff and they ramp the prices up). Rooms and breakfast are fine.Staff are pleasant. My only gripe is that there are always groups of dodgy looking characters hanging round reception and outside drinking alcohol and smoking. Collapse

Had a 0600 flight so decided to book in to lessen the impact of such an early flight, additionally we were returning from Amsterdam arriving in Cardiff at 2130 so decided to stay that night as well which meant we could enjoy the day without having to worry about driving home from the airport. Check in was quick and easy and in no time had dropped bags in the room and was sitting in the bar area having ordered food. The menu is not the most extensive but there is something for everyone. Chips were chunky and very crisp, well cooked indeed really enjoyable. My partner had a pizza which was really generous (regretted the side of chips with it!) and I had the fish & chips - fish a little on the small size but nevertheless all good 'pub grub' type food. Service was good, staff very pleasant & polite, there appears to be some regulars there, looked to be contractors so clearly consistent in their standard? The lounge area would benefit from more comfortable seating, when it is busy (as it was on a Thurs evening) we ended up staying at the table we ate at and then finishing up at the bar perched on a stool. Plenty of car parking to be had. The hotel is just a short walk to the terminal, and I could kick myself having waited previously for a taxi to arrive from Barry to take me to the hotel!! The route is quick & easy and has street lighting, and well under a 10 minute walk! Even in the rain and with luggage I would not now wait for the minibus from the hotel (they send a taxi if their minibus is unavailable)!! Breakfast the morning of the flight was basic, oats in a pot, some cakes and croissants, toast with tea/coffee/juice etc. Breakfast on our return was the same plus a hot option of sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs, baked beans & toast. The sausage and bacon was really nice tasted like good quality meats! Spent 2 very restful nights, very quiet indeed! There are no 13 amp plug outlets near the bed so if you want to charge your phone and use it as an alarm clock then its not very practical to rush across the room to silence your alarm! The whole place is clean and in good order. My only gripe, like many hotels is where guests smoke which is at the front door so you have to walk through the smokers to get to the hotel!! Collapse

This used to be a well run hotel with friendly staff and we always used it when flying from Cardiff. Now I think we will have to start looking for somewhere else. The reason(s); Staff only seem interested in getting through their shift. It is no longer particularly clean or smart. The long stay car park is awful and did my car no good at all. The worst fault is that the last two times we have arrived back we have been left waiting for a lift from the airport (and freezing cold) for 20 - 30 minutes. Considering the hotel is right next to the airport this is not acceptable. Last time after finally arriving at the hotel we went to the bar for a much needed drink and they were out of almost everything and we were forced to have something we didn't really want - not good given the price. On several occasions there has been a group of Eastern European men hanging around reception of just outside smoking and perhaps drinking (I am not sure about the latter). They did not help to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. Breakfast is barely acceptable as are the dining facilities. I want to like this hotel because we have used it for so many years but unfortunately not any longer. Collapse

The facilities were fine it’s the staff that needs retraining to at least look as if they are awake. We checked in explaining our flight was at 6am and allowing for the 2 hour before rule but as we had a passenger with an oxygen concentrator we would need to be at the check in by at least 3.30 am so it could be checked in by security. We had paid for breakfast so asked can it be arranged to just have cereal tea/ coffee etc available at this time. We were told to ring reception to make sure everything was ready for us,the lady was certain it would be as “they get it all ready well before but just in case” My husband and I couldn’t sleep so decided to grab a coffee and remind them we would need to leave at 3.30 am instead of 4 am. Turns out our transport hadn’t been booked the night before as we had arranged and there was no drivers to take us plus there wasn’t a wake up call logged even though we had stood there for way longer than we should have arranging all this lol and behold the whole breakfast area was empty nothing was switched on so I asked are we getting our continental breakfast? She knew nothing about it as well!! We ended up having just a cup of tea and a piece of toast each,no jams croissants cereals etc. Awful awful service I will never again stay in this place and if you’ve got any sense you won’t either. If you have an early morning flight do not pay for breakfast because you won’t get it. When we told relatives on arriving home my uncle told us he’d stayed there a few months previous and told them his flight was at 6 am and could he have a call at 4am,they called him at 6am when the flight was leaving!!. On complaining before leaving we were told breakfast starts at 4 am sorry. This means if the flight is leaving at 6 and you have to be there by 4 all those passengers who have paid for breakfast don’t actually get it!! This is a nice little money spinner for someone, disgraceful company!! Collapse

Stayed here while I worked in Barry. Good points, parking available on site and staff were friendly. Bad points: • Rooms were dated • I called down for a iron to be sent up and they said "I'm sorry we don't offer that service.. we only have a iron room." Which Is where you take down all your clothes to iron them in this small room by reception. • Restaurant was like an airport lounge.. not sure if that was to fit in with the theme of an airport hotel. • breakfast was diabolical with little options for vege. Closest Is a bowl of beans and cereal. I don't usually make the effort to make reviews but definitely wanted to give some feedback here.. please make some changes. Collapse
