Cheap hotel in City Centre
Good Location, Close to station, Clean.
It was okay. Hotel was not too expensive and is in a good central location and close to train station. Check in and check out was quick and easy, and room was clean with good shower. Negatives though, the big bed was made up of 2 mattresses which meant that it was not particularly comfortable and the wifi in the room was either very slow or not working.

great location in centre of Cardiff
comfortable bed, spacious room, cleanliness
the stay was great. Served our purpose and we would definitely stay here again. Check-in problematic (minor issue with check-in receptionist - error on their system regarding a double reservation, she was unwilling to deal with this and insisted that we had booked two rooms and had been charged for both - I checked with Agoda who were very helpful and reassured me that there was only one room booked. However, even after the receptionist spoke with Agoda she was adamant that we had booked two rooms and this would be investigated. Not a helpful receptionist at all.)

Clean hotel in central location
Clean hotel in central location.
Only stayed one night - chose the holiday inn because of its central location and that you know what you are getting in terms of room layout and cleanliness. Was one of the cheaper hotels in the centre but still not terribly cheap. Was fine and served its purpose in terms of a clean bed and decent shower.
