“Convenient location with terrific staff”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Family stay at the hotel was very enjoyable. The family room was clean and tidy and accommodated a double and two single beds. Staff were on form and could not fault the service, professionalism and sense of humour.

Says it all in the title! We booked a family room with a single trundle bed which made the space quite tight. However the room was so efficiently designed that it made our 3 night stay perfectly manageable and with seriously comfortable beds and mattress toppers, great choice of different firmness of pillows we all slept really well. Tiny bathroom but again, very well designed and efficient. Lack of storage but not a major issue for a short trip. Breakfast was excellent being cooked to order instread of a buffet; the most impressive aspect was the staff. Every member of staff with a friendly smile and positive attitude. If you are in need of an overnighter or want a great value base for visiting South Wales then I am happy to recommend it.

Stayed 2 nights for a family reunion. Had booked the wrong two nights but no problem for the really friendly desk staff who sorted it all out immediately. On top floor so no noise even though overlooking Sainsburys petrol station. Triple glazing DOES work. Usual standard PI bed and room and spotlessly clean. Breakfast cooked on ground floor and well cooked and lots of it.
Only gripe is the standard 30 minutes free internet use per day - surely in this day and age you could come up with free internet access for more than that meagre amount?

Room Tip: Pick top floor away from lift.

We stayed for 1 night in a family room with 2 adults and 2 children on a dedicated child friendly ground floor corridor.
Absolutely immaculate. Fantastic shower and lots of space even with a double bed and 2 singles !
The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast was perfect and as much as you want to eat for £8.75 for the whole family !!
Our room was on the premier inn sale price and booked for £29 ! Our only downside to the stay was a very inconsiderate drunk couple who disrupted the whole hotel by having a blazing row at 1am waking 2 young babies on our corridor, my children slept through it, my husband and I were kept awake and politely informed the staff in the morning as we were concerned for the welfare of the child with the couple.
We weren't the only people to share our concerns and on our journey home I recieved an email to say that the hotel were extremely sorry to hear that our stay was not prefect and refunded us our £29 !
Well done premier inn.
