Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Airport
Very Good8.0
With just a one night stay it was quite decent and the food was good but way too expensive. Stop the over priced bar too that is totally ridiculous. Room was clean and bedding was tidy. The room air con was rubbish, way too hot. We had to get a fan in the room to keep things cool. Early start meant a continental breakfast, orange juice was like cats pee !!! One lady working at 4.00 a.m. bless her, she was excellent, but she certainly needs more help. Chief cook and bottle washer and reception to deal with all on her own ??? You can and must do better than that.

Not too bad
Good check in, asked for a ground floor room and was allocated one. Noisey from 04:30 as people started to leave to catch their flights.

Perfect Bank Holiday Weekend
Fantastic value for money and perfect location for all the beautiful beaches in South Wales: Barry Island (12mins), Rhossili Bay (1hr), Llantwit Major (15 minutes)... Breakfast was good but WiFi signal in the room (first floor) was very poor. Overall great stay
