Contemporary comforts in Cardiff with castle or stadium views, including full English breakfast and three-course dinner

Nestled between the grand structures of the Gothic Cardiff Castle and the shiny Principality Stadium, the Holiday Inn Cardiff City Centre strikes a handy balance of smart, modern convenience with a load of classic Cardiff on your doorstep. Wander along the banks of the River Taff into the lovely Bute Park or along the Wales Coast Path to get back to nature, or even use the hotel as a starting point for a jaunt into the Brecon Beacons. If you’re staying in town however, be sure to check out the shopping, nightlife, and sport that the cosmopolitan city thrives on.

Marvel at the mixed skyline of modern and Victorian architecture with a water-bus ride to Mermaid Quay’s chic shopping area, where you’ll find the art-filled Wales Millennium Centre and a host of waterfront restaurants, cafes and bars. Back at the hotel, you’ll find a daily board of dinner specials in the Junction Restaurant and a stylish lounge bar. You’ll recharge your batteries in a spacious, air conditioned room with elegant decor and castle or stadium views.
