Cardiff hotels are planning special deals to lure back Munster and Biarritz supporters who visit the city for the Heineken Cup Final.

Hotel rooms in Cardiff on the eve of the Heineken Cup final have been fully booked for weeks, and hotels in Bristol, Monmouth and Swansea have also put up the ‘no vacancies’ signs, so this time many fans will pay only a fleeting visit to the capital of Wales.

To give them every incentive to return, rugby fans are being offered discount rates at Cardiff’s top hotels for a visit later in the year.

Cheryl Clarke, manager of Cardiff’s Tourist Information Centre said; “Rugby fans love to make a weekend of it when they travel here to support their team, and hotels in the area often get booked up weeks in advance of big games.

“These offers from the hotels in Cardiff, however, mean any fans unable to extend their stay this weekend will receive great rates if they come back to Cardiff for a short break.”

For more information on the offers available and up to date accommodation availability, fans can phone the Cardiff Tourist Information Centre on +44 (0)8701 211 258 or email
