“Comfy and cheap but not for those with mobility problems.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2014

Looks terrible from outside but my opinion changed on entering entrance as it is modern and welcoming. Lady on reception quickly handed me over to her colleague, no explanation why. They didn't address my children here but restaurant staff are friendlier.
Room was lovely standard we had come to expect from Premier Inn chain. Had great sleep except for a large group charging in the corridors, not the hotels fault and it didn't go on for long.
Lovely fresh variety of food on offer for breakfast, it was kept well stocked.
On a bank holiday weekend, it was full so the restaurant had a queue because it is quite small for the hotel size.
Beware those with mobility issues, the car park is 2 flights of steep steps away from hotel. The buffet breakfast is down steps (with no ramp) from the seating. We saw a frustrated lady on crutches order via her friend. Then a very angry lady in a mobility scooter was rightly complaining they had taken her liberty away due to no access. Also, the restaurant fire exit was down steps also. Very surprised in this day and age when we have a lot adapted to support various disabilities

Room Tip: Avoid if you have mobility problems.

Usually stay in Premier Inn's because you can get good deals, the rooms are clean and comfortable, free breakfast for kids and no sleeper couches. Proper bed for each child. The 30 min free WiFi is an excellent new addition as well.

We stayed here for a weekend in August, the hotel is exactly what you'd expect from a Premier Inn, clean rooms, comfy beds and the selection at breakfast is great. Location is about a 10-15 minute drive from the city centre (taxi was about £15) for the price we paid we really had no complaints at all. Great value.

The room and bathroom were clean, unfortunately the beds were not comfortable at all as they were too hard. We booked a family room and our youngest daughter had a 'put up bed' to sleep on which was just awful, I did ask if another bed could be put into the room and they told us that this was the biggest room and that they didn't have any other beds only the 'put up bed'!. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were all very nice just a shame about the beds.

Have just stayed here for two nights as part of a large group.
My room was immaculate with plenty of clean towels, a comfortable bed and pillows.
The staff were very very friendly with nothing being too much trouble. Only had breakfast on the last morning, with plenty to choose from, fresh and hot.
Would certainly stay here again.

We have stayed here many times as my daughter lives in her flat near by. Its so handy for getting into Cardiff without staying in the noise of a city centre.

The rooms are comfortable, the staff helpful and friendly and the breakfast cannot be faulted for value and quality
