The staff were very helpful, but unfortunately internet wasnt working in my rrom, i tried to use there t.v. internet it wasnt working. i tried to book a film, again, it wasnt working. it is a new hotel, but i think it is no fault of the hotel, it is the etv system which is externally looked after by a private company. i would defintely go back again. The staff in the Cardiff airport holiday inn were lovely. Collapse

Stayed here Friday 12th May after arriving 2 hours late on a flight .Met by friendly staff and given keys to a lovely twin room with great bathroom .Breakfast next morning was perfect to set us up for our journey to Swansea .After waiting for the airport/train station bus to turn up , which never appeared , the reception staff were very helpful , tried calling and complaining to bus company and then they told us that their own shuttle bus ( airport one ) driver would drop us to train station .For those of you that know Cardiff Airport , you will know that the train station is not close to the airport at all as we found out.We were taken to the train station , passing the bus that should have arrived on the way and dropped off .The driver refused to take the £2 fare that the bus would have taken which we thought was fantastic . Well done Holiday Inn for giving great customer service , hope to use you again in the future . Collapse

Our room was hot. Although the air conditioning made a noise it did not cool the room. Being an airport hotel you can not open the window. This heat did disturb our sleep. The room was pleasant, clean with everything you needed. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast good, and plenty of it. The Postcode does not take you to the hotel. Collapse
Rooms good; restaurant terrible.

This is a review of the Holiday Inn Express restaurant only. In a few words: charmless, with staff who don't care much. We went for an evening meal here. There is no table service, so you have to order at the bar. Fair enough. But staff showed no effort to be polite or even interested. "What do you want?" " Drinks?" And that was it. No thank yous, no can I help you, no smiles. Just hopeless service. The food when it came was OK (3*) but again, it was delivered without any attempt to provide a service. Collapse

If travelling by plane, this hotel is a great location. We were on a one night leisure break as it was a good rate. Making the reservation direct with the hotel was straightforward but when we arrived, the front desk attendant was unable to find our reservation. After repeating our surname three times, he eventually found us. Luckily, I had taken a picture of the reservation on my phone as back-up. The room was clean and we were able to see the occasional plane landing which was fine. However, the sofa bed wasn't made up and there wasn't enough towels or cups for the three of us. On our way out, I mentioned this to reception and they confirmed the bed would be made. On our return a few hours later, the bed had been pulled out with the bedding left on top. Unfortunately, we were able to see all the stains on the bed itself. I then had to make the bed. If I wanted to make beds on a break, I would have chosen to go camping instead!! The extra towel or cup didn't appear so I had to go back to reception for this. My son had an awful nights sleep on the sofa bed. He described it as 'comfortless'. I think that wraps it up nicely. When we went for breakfast, we had to ask a member of staff to clean the table before we were able to be seated. Another member of staff walked passed us as we were deciding whether to sit at that table. He could see that the table needed cleaning as I saw him look directly at it but walked off. I went to reception to ask for someone to clean the table, which she did immediately. This really put my daughter off so she didn't eat at all. Breakfast was hot but the hotel ran out of large dining plates. We had to eat from side plates. We had to wait for tea/coffee cups, the hot food area had spillages around the beans which hadn't been cleared up. Usually breakfast is a leisurely experience but we were happy to eat and run. I would not willingly stay there again unless we were on an early morning flight. Collapse

Booked an overnight stay and car parked for our trip to Spain. Helpful reception, great food, clean room. All in all, very pleasantry surprised and will certainly book there again on any future trips from Cardiff Airport.
