Holland House, also known as Macdonald Holland House, is a high-rise hotel on Newport Road near the centre of Cardiff, Wales. The 60-metre high building has 15 floors and is the seventh tallest building in Cardiff.


Holland House stands on the site which used to belong to the first secondary school in Cardiff.[1]

The building used to be offices for Lloyds TSB. It was refurbished in 2003/4 for hotel use.[2] The hotel was run by Macdonald Hotels until 2007 when it was sold to Accor to be run under the Mercure brand.[3]

In 2006, the exterior of the building was used as a hospital for filming of the Cardiff sci-fi and drama series Torchwood.[4]

Holland House underwent an alteration and refurbishment project[when?] on the existing concrete framed structure, including the destruction of an existing 2 storey extension structure. The 2 storey extension itself was 30 x 15 metre² and was built on top of an existing basement car park area.[5]

Hotel facilities[edit]

Mercure Holland House and Spa is a 4 star hotel with 165 rooms. The hotel has a first floor restaurant and a lounge bar, an indoor swimming pool and 17 meeting spaces.[6]
