About Your Visit

Welcome to The Parkgate Hotel.

We hope the following information will help with your upcoming visit and answer some frequently asked questions.

The Parkgate Hotel is located on Westgate Street in the city of Cardiff, just a 7-minute walk from Cardiff Central railway station.  There are several bus stops nearby, the closest of which are around a 1 minute walk from the hotel.

Please note there is no drop-off or baggage drop area outside the hotel.

Cardiff is well connected and can be easily reached by road (M4 motorway) and rail (Cardiff Central Station) from all major UK cities, and also from many international and UK destinations direct by air via Cardiff Airport.  The T9 bus service offers a direct link from Cardiff Airport to Cardiff City Centre and the bus stop is located directly outside the airport terminal.

The Parkgate Hotel is located in the centre of Cardiff city, therefore we are unable to offer on-site parking or valet parking services. Thanks to its convenient location, there are a range of public transport options, as well as public car parks, within walking distance of the hotel. Please find more details about car parking below.

When there’s a major event in Cardiff, there can be road closures. Please check for road closures before your journey to the car park.


Located just across the road from the Principality stadium, the NCP car park at Cardiff Westgate Street is ideally located for gigs and sporting events.  Please note that during big sporting events such as the Six Nations games, the council pedestrianises roads in Cardiff city centre, therefore Westgate Street car park will be closed.  In this instance, Cardiff Greyfriars NCP can be used as an alternative.
