Motorpoint Arena

The arena sits opposite Cardiff’s shopping district and was opened on 10 September 1993, by Welsh legend Shirley Bassey, in front of 5,500 fans.

On 1 March 2011, the Cardiff International Arena was officially renamed Motorpoint Arena Cardiff and has hosted some of the biggest names in music, comedy and dance including One Direction, Lee Evans, Strictly Come Dancing, Disney, Lady Gaga, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah, Celine Dion and Take That to name a few.

The Main Arena offers 4,500 square metres of exhibition space, and is very versatile, for the number of different events that take place at the Arena. Full capacity can reach 7,500, in a standing layout and 5,000, for a fully seated event.

The Motorpoint Arena Cardiff is less than a five minute walk from the hotel making us a perfect location to stay over when visiting the Motorpoint.
