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.
Holiday Inn Express is a great choice for your Cardiff airport hotel. It offers the ideal setting to get your holiday started early.

Getting to and from CWL airport
The bus to the airport runs whenever it’s needed, just arrange a transfer time with the reception staff when you check-in. All of this is included in the price of your stay.
Returning to the Holiday Inn Express
You must check out by noon. You'll need to take your car to Long Stay car park 2, which is within the airport grounds and only about three minutes from the hotel. The car park has CCTV, entry and exit barriers and a fence and is regularly patrolled.
- As you exit the hotel car park, turn left.
- At the first roundabout, take the second exit.
- Shortly after, you'll approach another roundabout, take the first exit.
- Continue along this road. The car park is on the right.
When you arrive, make sure you are in the car you made your booking with. As you approach the entry barrier, don't take a ticket as a camera will read your number plate and the barrier will raise. If this doesn't happen, press the assistance button for help.
Then just park your car, unload your luggage and either walk or take the shuttle bus to the terminal. The car park is about 10 minutes' walk from check-in, but if you prefer, there's a shuttle bus every 10 to 15 minutes. The bus runs 24 hours a day and is included in the price.
There are disabled parking spaces near the exit, and the shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible.
