Lovely stay perfect for what was required

Enjoyable stay in Cardiff Holiday Inn
I visited Cardiff with my sister and enjoyed every minute. The hotel is in a great place, next to the Cardiff Castle and stadium. It's also across from the city center and shops. Our room had two twin beds (singles). The bathrooms were a little dated but everything was clean and fresh. The staff was really friendly. We arrived late on our checkin day, minutes from the bar closing, and the bartender still took our food order. The hotel also stored our luggage on our last day as we did our final sightseeing. Highly recommend it! (One thing tonite of staying close to the stadium - make sure you know of the events going on because during our last day Coldplay was playing and the nearby streets were closed, making it hard to get to the train station)

Awesome hotel!
Clean and comfortable with a great staff right across the street from the Cardiff Castle and around the corner from the main shopping area. I honestly could not have asked for more!

Very comfortable Room with Air Conditioning. The Cardiff Castel is just across the street and right next to the stadium. Great Location.

Never again
I was a little disgruntled with the hotel. Every place I have stayed in Europe or the United States, whether it was a b&b, or a hotel, has had free WiFi and breakfast included with the room. Their breakfast price was exorbitant when we could walk down the street and get the same breakfast for 1/3 the price which is what we did. We also got free WiFi with the less expensive breakfast. We had two rooms for eight days and mine had only one little desk drawer to put clothes in. The other room had three drawers so I guess I just got unlucky. There was mold in the grout in the bathroom even on the first day. I will not stay in this hotel again.
