Great deals on hotel rooms

The Holiday Inn Express Cardiff Airport is a busy hive of activity. It's the closest hotel to the airport, so close that you can see the runway from some rooms. With a small gym with treadmills and a casual, friendly bar with pool tables, air hockey and a Wii to play, you'll have plenty to keep you entertained. The following morning, however, is all about free stuff! Help yourself to a free cooked breakfast from the hotel restaurant's buffet while you check on your flight with free wifi before hopping on a free transfer bus to the airport. It runs whenever you arrange it with the hotel and takes just five minutes. If you need to be where it's all happening, then this is the hotel for you.
