Good value of money stay. But I was expecting more than what I got for the amount of money I paid. I've had similar stays in other hotels for more or less same rates but they had more facilities. There was no intercom in the room. The shower head was fixed and unmovable, so while adjusting the water temperature, I... More

We were in Cardiff for a wedding. I wasn't sure what to expect. Upon checking in, the staff were very friendly and the room was very nice. It is an older hotel, but the rooms are very clean and the bed is comfortable. Great place for the money.

Stayed here for one night before transferring to a Holiday Express Inn for two nights, so the chance to compare the two was ideal. You can see my review of the HIE, but Premier Inn won hands down. The Hotel's biggest weakness is its location. Tucked round the back of an ugly industrial estate, it is nestled against A David... More

We arrived at the Premier Inn a few hours early , the receptionist said the room was ready and let us check in early. The room was lovely, clean,comfortable and there was a fan if it got too warm, also a sheet if the duvet was too warm. The staff were very polite, friendly and very helpful, they should be... More

We took advantage of the £29 per night deal which was fantastic value. Even though the hotel is outside Centre of Cardiff there were frequent busses from the end of the road and taxis are always available at under £7 each way, making the City easily accessible. Situated next to the John Lloyd Centre the hotel is very quiet and... More

From the outside of the building, we were not real sure we would like this place. It turned out to be very nice. One of the best beds I have slept in, in a hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful, 24 hour desk service. We ate at the restaurant and the menu was varied. We were in a... More

First of all, take a satnav as driving in Cardiff is a mare. Three times we went back to this hotel and each time we got lost. Its in the middle of an industrial estate so take some food and stock up on water as the rooms are very hot. The room was ok and clean and staff were friendly.... More

This is a typical premier inn, but off the beaten track. It is in a dated building, but the rooms are of the usual high standard, except there is no air con. During these warm months it does make the rooms rather uncomfortable. Cannot comment on the restauarnt as we did not eat here
