“AWFUL”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

Where to start... First of all we were accused of not paying for our room by the RUDE receptionist, then we were given the key to a standard room although on laterooms we had booked a larger one. When we got to the room the smell was unpleasent, there was no soap left in the bathroom, the towels were unclean and we found a spider in our bed. The breakfast was ridiculously overpriced, £5 each for a bowl of cereal and some toast! We certainly won't be using Days Inn again.

Good welcome and checked into room 6. Foul smell (possibly cat pee!!) and no third bed made up. Was told the hotel wasn't always told how many had booked the room! Were transferred rapidly to another room - made us think that Reception knew of the smell but hoped no one would complain. No bed made up - receptionist told us to wait for the sheet she'd bring. She'd offered to help to make the bed in the first room, but no offer this time. Not enough mugs or towels for three in either room. Tap water was not drinking water so had to go to foyer to get small cup from dispenser.
Next morning, manager apologetic, offered 50% discount next time. Refused any discount for this stay but wanted to show us next time how much they valued customers. Told him we would not return to a place that valued customers so little they would put them in a room like the one we were given first and expect them to make their own beds. I know it's down market, but we regularly use Premier and HI Express and Etap, and this place was no comparison, and was £55. Room was clean and well presented, however.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else

As a place for a stop over, near the motorway and convenient for a stay over to do the Dragon Ride the next day, it was ideal. It does not do food, but has services nearby - the local pub comes highly recommmended but had a wedding the day we were there and so couldn't cater for us. The other services nearby include Welcome Break, BurgerKing and Stabucks, with Harvester close by and plenty of other pubs and restaurants, supermarkets and shop just a short drive away. Very hospitable hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms to the same good value standard.

This hotel provides a cool and relaxed atmosphere for business meetings and vacation. Staffs are friendly and services are at par. If any one visiting south Wales it provides the good commuting connections as well.

Stayed here whislt visiting family. The access on a service station made my heart sink however the receptionist was charming and helpful and there was plenty of parking right outside. Our family room was clean and all the beds made but why are there never the right number of towels, mugs etc for the number of people pre booked?
The towels were clean but tired, bed linen was spotless. If sleeping on one pillow isn't for you take a spare with you. The extra complimentary tea and coffee in reception is a nice touch.
Silly things like the remote not working, driping tap and disconnected heated towel rail are irritating but hey ho!
The location is remarkably quiet considering the location. IN the early hours of Saturday morning we were woken by some drunken yobs banging on our door and then rowing for ages, annoying but not the managements fault.
All told good basic accommodation.

Stayed for one night with family for a sight seeing trip to London. Hotel very modern, clean, warm with lovely decent sized rooms for larger families. Took car and parked it near to hendon tube station (only £4 for the day) and got 20 minute tube to city centre.
Breakfast lovely - Only downside - booked for family of 5 and when we arrived the receptionist queried our booking stating room would only take 4. Luckily had kept note of managers name and conversation.
Would certainly go again.

Good service with unlimited supply of water, tea and coffee, and choice of breakfast. Neat and tidy rooms. Staff are very helpful. Nice experience.
Only 20-25 min. to Cardiff and much cheaper to stay than hotels in Cardiff city. I especially enjoyed the guilt-free shopping at Bridgend Designer Outlet:P
