“Perfect placement”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We booked this hotel in the centre of Cardiff because we know that the Premier Inn brand is of a very good quality but this one in Cardiff is one of the best.
The first thing that impresses you is the size and look of the hotel with its mirror windows and high viewpoint. Secondly, the welcome is friendly, fast and very helpful when using the booking in machines. The rooms are pretty standard throughout the chain but these in Cardiff are just that bit better due to not looking tired or scuffed and are also of a very good size.
The breakfast in the morning is of a buffet style with full English plus cereals and muffins, dried fruit, toast etc and you can ask for poached eggs or vegetarian sausage. The food was cooked well and provided and good start to the day. The staff in the restaurant are also helpful and friendly.
This is our second time at this hotel and certainly won't hesitate to come again. We were lucky to get a front view room on the fourth floor on our first visit which was great but got a back view on the first floor this time which wasn't so good for view but not everyone can get the best rooms so I'm not going to grumble.

Writing reviews of Premier Inn’s is always difficult as lets face they are all very similar functional, comfortable and many of them quite modern, and the same is true of Cardiff City Centre.

The location is excellent with everything you need in walking distance. The only difficulty is parking, there is no car parking at the hotel with the nearest place being an outdoor NCP just down the road which did not look like the most secure place to me. Also driving in Cardiff is a pain with many no right/left turns on streets making life ever more difficult.

Other than the parking issues though this place is on a par with the other good Premier Inn’s around the country and I would have no hesitation to recommend it!

We booked this hotel following other reviews on trip advisor and really couldn't fault a thing! Check-in was efficient and the lady was friendly and polite. She put us on the 6th floor (we had a family room for me, my husband and our 9 year old son) which was lovely and quiet. In fact we hardly heard anyone else the whole stay! The room was immaculately clean, plenty of towels, 6 hangers, tea & coffee with all the milk, kettle etc, plenty of sockets, a hairdryer (even though id brought my own) choice of pillows (firm, soft) air con, tv, really everything you could need.
Position in Cardiff was great, near the shops and restaurants, all within walking distance.
We didn't eat in the hotel at night but went back to the bar after we'd been out for a drink. Lovely ambience, comfortable with plenty of choice of drinks, beers and costa coffee. In fact the food menu in the restaurant looked good and we could see quite a few families had eaten there.
We paid for breakfast in the morning, my husband the full premier breakfast (cooked) me the continental and our son ate free. We were greeted in the morning by a really cheerful bloke who was very helpful showing us where everything was. I had a bowl of fresh fruit salad, some toast, a yoghurt and fruit tea. My husband had the cooked buffet breakfast which looked nice, not greasy and our son had weetabix. There was so much choice, bowls of nuts, dried banana, raisins, croissants, muffins, lots of herbal teas and normal teas, lots of cereals and breads. We were spoilt for choice!
The whole stay was perfect and we couldn't get over how reasonable a price it all was. We have stayed in other budget chains before and they aren't a patch on Premier Inn. This hotel particularly stands out because the staff obviously enjoy working there and are all so friendly and helpful. Its also immaculate, the housekeeping is excellent. Big thumbs up from us and we'd stay there again tomorrow.

This was our first visit to a Premier Inn and found the staff most welcoming and very helpful. Our bedroom was very clean, warm and comfortable with the all important complimentary tea & coffee. Breakfast was first class and reasonably priced. Overall a very good experience and I would definitely stay in a Premier Inn again.
