Ok, my nephew and I have now stayed here 3 years on the run while visiting the Doctor Who experience. And having read some of the reviews I thought I should now write one. We have always found it to be clean and tidy, yep it's in a strange place, yes you have to go for a walk next door... More

Good experience: clean and comfortable as we expect from Premier Inn. Arrived in the dark and missed the sign into the industrial estate - wondered where we were going at first, but as this hotel is paired with John Lloyd Leisure, it worked out very well.

Possibly the worst nights sleep ever in a hotel. Parts of the hotel have wooden floorboards that creak very badly which seems to echo across the whole room from all sides. I would add I do not believe the rooms are fit for purpose this is not an exaggeration. Senior management from Premier Inn need to visit this place and... More

On the outside building is looking tired. On the inside clean and tidy. Rooms very clean with all required amenities. Only problem was that on 2nd day no chef available in the John Lloyd which is next door so no hot breakfast available. Had to sort out a refund and drive 3 miles to get a breakfast!

Very good service, super comfy bed. Clean and spacious room and bathroom. Nicely assorted room and space for your luggage/clothes. Quiet location and easy commute to city- we were driving. Very pleasant stay Breakfast portions seem a bit small but decent.

The hotel building and the adjoining David Lloyd sports club are interesting, as it appears that they have been converted from a former office block and factory. However this proves a good formula, as the location is convenient for the the A48(M) and Newport Road, but relatively quiet. The parking is free, and the ample size of the car park... More

This small hotel is tucked away in an industrial estate next to David Lloyds. The parking is free . Believe you me that a bonus when parking in Cardiff city centre can be up to £ 20 a day. The busses are every 10 mins into town ( on Newport rd) . There are plenty of places to eat within... More

My partner and I stayed at the premier inn for 2 nights and thought the staff at the premier inn were extremely helpful, polite and welcoming. They gave us all the information we needed and told us what facilities we could use and what was on offer. They serve the breakfast and dinner next door in the attached building which... More

On first appearances the building looks tired and dated. Clearly visible from the A48, but even with the help of a Sat Nav was difficult to find, hidden behind a David Lloyd sports centre on what appears to be an industrial estate. Staff were brilliant, very welcoming and friendly. The room was clean and tidy. This is my first visit... More
