The location of this premier inn is convenient for our family as we have family who live nearby. Exceptionally friendly staff, clean rooms, comfy beds. Breakfast is decent. You have to walk round the corner to the gym for it. No hardship. We will be back soon :)

This is not your normal Premier Lodge template building. It was hard to make out what the building used to be in a former life but outwardly it looks very unwelcoming. Set in an industrial estate within the grounds of, and behind, a David Lloyd's health centre. This means that you have to go through the barrier of the centre... More

Pleasant stay. Stayed here twice when my daughter was at uni in Cardiff. Staff always friendly. Breakfast is nextdoor in the lloyds gym. Breakfast is good and worth the money. Would definately stay here again

A cheap overnight stay in a standard premier inn hotel. A long way from any Cardiff city attractions and limited to a couple of local pubs for food. Very noisy if you are on the road side so stay looking into the carpark as I expect this would be much quieter -

Very difficult to find. Sat Nav took us to Enerprise car rental! We turned round and slowly drove back, in the thickest of bushes we saw the Premier Inn sign (look for David Lloyd health club and it's there) When you first get into the room if you haven't been to a Premier Inn before you would think the lights...

I am a big fan of Premier Inns and have been detailed to differentiate between Roath and other hotels in the chain. First and most importantly, the welcome was warm, friendly and helpful. Second, the room was spotless. However, it was way too hot. Now this is understandable after all it is the UK in an unseasonable hot September. However,... More

Stopped here for the Speedway Grand Prix and was very impressed. The beds were comfortable, very clean, friendly staff. My brother said to me on the day we visited that he would happily stop there again and I agreed with him.

We stayed in Primer inn Cardiff Roath for three nights. We booked two family rooms. Upon arrival we were given two adjacent family rooms on the second floor. The rooms were clean, so were the bathrooms. The family room is quite spacious and big enough for two extra beds and a cot if needed. The staff have put up fans... More
