Plenty of places to eat & drink but does get very busy. If weather is right would recommend walking around to Penarth (lovely pub - The Old Custom House overlooking the bay & you can catch the water taxi back).
I took my 15 year old son here and we both had a fantastic day. There was lots to see and do. It felt great to sit near the Welsh assembly and eat ice cream! Lots of great music and lots to eat and drink! Loved it.
Get the boat from Bute park and if you're travelling too late for a return trip the buses are so cheap and easy to get, returning to the city centre (if that's where you're staying) is no trouble. There are also taxi ranks as well of course.
If you can! Walk all the way to the bar on the far side of the bay and have a drink by the sea lock gates and then get the water taxi back. Yoy can go both way on the water taxi if you don't fancy the walk.
Worth taking a boat trip (The Daffodil boat trip gives a very good local knowledge and is good value for money). The Doctor Who Experience is also very worth while visiting. Good mix of restaurants to eat at.
There a lot of boat tours, but due the time I've chosen the simple one, but it was worth! I paid 3 pounds (May/17) to The Open Boat Tour for 20 minutes and was very nice, the guide was friendly and polite!

All staff were very nice, courteous and so helpful. The room was excellent. The room had been newly modernised, extremely clean and had everything we needed in the room for our stay. We would highly recommend the Holidays Inn Express in Cardiff Bay. The position of the hotel is in short walking distance to Cardiff Bay. We will now be using it as our base whenever we visit Cardiff/Cardiff Bay in the future.

It was a perfect little room for just myself. The room is cleverly designed to maximise space and storage. Bed was comfortable, no noise from other rooms. Staff we really friendly, welcoming and helpful. I also travelled by train to Cardiff so incredibly convenient location for the station, city centre, castle and only a short distance from Cardiff Bay. Great hotel.
9.1 Superb 248 reviews
Communication about collecting and dropped off keys and finding the apartment was excellent and friendly. Staff at reception were lovely. It was a good location for walking into city centre- 2’ away! On the 16th floor we had a fantastic view of Cardiff Bay. A few screeching trains in the morning only when we had the window open!

This hotel was clean, convenient, with friendly staff and overall ideal to visit Cardiff and Cardiff Bay (in our case to see the National Eisteddfod). We had forgotten our toothbrushes and shampoo on this occasion, but the staff were able to supply these.

best elevators in any hotel. lovely relaxing swimming pool, grat location for middle of the city or cardiff bay
Cardiff city centre and Cardiff Bay both come alive at night with lively bars and restaurants yet I always feel safe there even when travelling alone
Brilliant cafÃ© culture, fantastic restaurants and just a few minutes walk away is the lovely Bute Park and the River Taff, where you can get a little boat down to Cardiff Bay
