    Its clean and comfortable enough, and nicely located by one of the old harbour basins. 15 minutes walk takes you to Mermaid Quay and there are plenty of restaurants there next to the Bay and the Welsh Opera House. The biggest attraction for me though is the hotels dog friendly policy - its getting rarer to find and something Holiday Inn Xpress should be commended for!

    Buffet breakfast choices extremely limited and not even a pot of tea available, instead have to use one of 2 coffee machines for hot water. The limited and overpriced food and drink available mean eating out is the sensible option... No power shower in this hotel, more of a trickle.

    The cleanliness and overall presentation

    The cooked breakfast was of mediocre quality and limited choice.

    Didn't have time for breakfast, but the coffee to go was a big help to me.
