Great place to stay on match weekends.Holiday Inn wouldn't usually be my first choice but the tariffs of all Cardiff hotels go up prohibitively on match weekend. As it turns out, this is THE place to stay - great stadium view, loads of rugby legends milling about and great friendly fan atmosphere.

Standard room booked. Arrived to a not the most friendly of reception staff. She didn’t seem very happy to be working New Year’s Eve.

Pocket Guide: 3 stars Hotels in Cardiff

If you’re looking for three star accommodation in and around the Cardiff area, you will find a broad selection available on Expedia. Choose to stay within the city centre and you will be well placed to explore the attractions of the city on foot. Or you might prefer to stay a little further out, in Newport, Barry, Usk, Chepstow, Bridgend, Pontypool, Cowbridge, Blackwood or Pontypridd.

If you’d like to stay in the city centre there are plenty of options, from large and well-featured hotels with every modern amenity to smaller and more intimate guesthouses and B&Bs with more of a personal touch. Whichever you choose, you can take advantage of your central location to explore the shops, restaurants, pubs and other attractions on your doorstep.

There’s no shortage of things to do and places to visit in this busy city, the largest in Wales and its capital. There are several museums where you can learn about the long history of this area, which has been inhabited by humans since Neolithic times, and many historic places to visit, including Cardiff Castle, an impressive medieval castle in the heart of the city.

Cardiff has a thriving entertainment scene, ranging from opera, ballet, musicals and live music, and the city is packed with theatres, galleries, museums, arts and music venues. Whether you’re looking for traditional or modern entertainment, in a tiny venue or a vast auditorium, you are bound to find something you like in Cardiff.

If you enjoy shopping, Cardiff is a veritable paradise that truly has something for everyone, from historic Victorian and Edwardian arcades to ultra-modern shopping centres, and from high street chain stores to interesting and unique independent shops. You can find anything and everything here, from the latest high street fashions to vintage clothing, antiques and rare vinyl records.

Further out of town you still have a wide choice of three star accommodation, from impressive country hotels to cosy guesthouses and B&Bs, and thanks to the area’s excellent public transport links you should have no difficulty getting to and from the city. The countryside around Cardiff offers some stunning views and a warm Welsh welcome, so you might like to escape the bustle of the city in the evenings.

While the city itself is packed with places to visit and things to do, you will find no shortage of attractions in the countryside that surrounds it. With castles, museums and nature reserves to visit, and a broad range of recreational activities on offer, such as walking, cycling, mountain biking, golf, sailing, parasailing and more, your holiday can be as busy as you’d like it to be.

Many hotels have their own restaurants and offer free parking, while some offer swimming pools, fitness equipment, room service and spa facilities. The majority of places also provide high speed internet access. Wherever you choose to stay, you will find that booking three star accommodation through Expedia is a reliable way to find good quality accommodation at a sensible price.
