Stayed here one night for business trip. Very basic and at least clean. Bed was really comfortable. Only downside is it is attached to David loyyd gym. Very pretentious people who stare awkwardly as if you have no right to be there. Made breakfast feel weird. So if you only need abed go, but if you need more keep looking.

Myself and my two children were staying here for the second time, as we partake in a Karate competition in Cardiff, and this hotel is local. The rooms, beds were second to none & the adjacent eating facilities have improved from last year. Location is ideal for driving or commuting to city centre, and has many eating establishments nearby. As... More

The hotel is in a weird location down a side street in an out-of-town commercial area. I would not want to find it without a car. However, with a car it was fine with plenty of parking space. Because it was in a commercial area, it was really quiet at night, so a good night's sleep. The rooms are exactly... More

Very convenient hotel out of the way in the retail park. Wouldn't suit tourists necessarily but up once a month to use the Olympic Pool for Team GB training this was perfect. Very reasonably priced compared to Cardiff Bay hotels. The usual high standard of Premier Inn. Do not be put off by the lack of view, great for occasional... More

This was a one night stay and we were not bothered by the setting. The room was clean and comfortable. The only minus points were that the shower pressure was feeble and the hospitality tray contained the miserly quantity of two teabags and two coffee sachets. The lift was very slow in coming and I ended by carting a heavy... More

As part of visiting family in Somerset we decided to visit Cardiff as part of our journey home. We had spent the earlier part of the week in Glastonbury's Premier Inn so it made sense using Premier Inn in Cardiff. First impressions are its stuck next to an industrial estate and attached to a large leisure centre and tennis club... More

Room no. 44 - great bed, soft & comfy. HUGE flat tv. Modern deco. Love it. Dislike - no signs at David Lloyds's entrance to say Premier Inn was inside. We thought we were at the wrong place. Building looks run down. Could use some makeover.

It is in a very strange location tucked away behind the David Lloyd sports centre also your meals are in David Lloyd as this is not part of the... More

A great hotel with fantastic staff. Great for parking and brilliant value for money. I had a problem with a early delivery driver making a noise and reported to the reception which was sorted with a refund. Thank you and will definitely stay again.
