Pocket Guide: Cardiff

Vibrant Cardiff caters to all budgets and tastes in the range of hotels that it offers. From luxurious 5 star hotels to cosy guesthouses there is plenty to choose from, and accommodation is only ever in short supply during the Six Nations rugby tournament in February and March.

For those looking for something special there are options to stay in unique accommodation with a real difference or to enjoy a stay in a hotel around the delightful waterfront area of Cardiff Bay.

Most hotels are located conveniently just a short walk from the city’s attractions, and its fantastic shopping centres and arcades are never too far away. For those who would rather dip in and out of the city’s energetic pace there are also opportunities to relax in the beautiful Welsh countryside in country hotels just outside the city.

Stay on the Waterfront at Cardiff Bay

Cardiff Bay is the waterfront development that houses the Wales Millennium Centre and more art events, galleries and happenings than you could possibly hope to fit into a visit. It’s also an area that teems with relaxed restaurants, cafes, bars and delightful squares to mooch around by the waterfront. There are luxury hotels complete with spas that make their own architectural statements amongst the more public architectural displays, but there are also plenty of more modest hotels where you can still take in the ambience of Cardiff at its best.

Around Cathedral Road some fine Victorian town houses have been converted into serviced apartments that can be rented by visitors, offering a refreshing alternative to a hotel stay without sacrificing any of the splendour.

Cheap Cardiff Hotels for the Budget Conscious

At the other end of the spectrum there are numerous backpacker hotels clustered around the centre that offer comfort without the price tag for those who don’t need all the frills but just want to be close to the city’s thrills.

For those looking for escape rather than excitement a short drive out from the city centre can take you to places like Thornhill where you can enjoy the beautiful Welsh countryside and stay in elegant country hotels that nestle on the outskirts of Cardiff and command spectacular views of the city and the Bristol Channel.

Make Yourself at Home in Cardiff

In the popular district of Pontcanna you can find plenty of well-appointed guesthouses where you will be made to feel really at home. Many are converted period houses and all are situated close to local bars and stylish restaurants, with the convenience of the city centre being just a relaxed 5 minutes stroll away.

Get Close to the Action in Cardiff

If rugby is your passion and you need to stay as close as possible to the Millennium Stadium and really hear the crowd roar, even if you can’t get the tickets to join them, then there are numerous hotel options for you on St Mary Street, Castle Street and Clare Street.

Wherever you stay in Cardiff you can’t help but love the city. Enjoy your trip.
