Stayed on a Saturday night to watch family participating in the Cardiff half marathon. Not that impressive from the outside but functional, very cheap , clean and friendly staff so perfect for an overnight stay. Caught the park and ride into Cardiff, cheap and easy. Would use again.

Welcoming, comfortable and everything needed, was taken care of to make my stay enjoyable from start to finish.. greatly appreciated after a three hour journey. Breakfast and service the following morning was the icing on the cake!

Not expensive and plenty of parking. But Premier Inns really have neglected the outside of this property so your heart sinks on approach. It's like a motel lodge and looks shabby. Then I found they had put me in a room upstairs above reception and the entrance where people were stood outside smoking and talking. Did manage to get moved... More

A very typical Premier Inn - what you would expect from this hotel chain, but a very comfortable, clean and nice room with a lovely quiet peaceful setting. There wasn't anything I could complain about here - the staff were great, the room was just what my fiance and I needed and the location was perfect for us and everything... More

Lovely friendly receptionists who were very chatty and welcoming. Helpful having a restaurant onsite- we did some calculations and decided to go for the meal deal that was offered. Room comfortable and quiet. Bathroom rather small but manageable. Hairdryer in the room is always a bonus.

As usual this hotel offers the quality that Premier Inn provides. The room was up to date having had a recent refurbishment. I was created by a friendly receptionist and the meal deal including the evening meal was great value. why look for other accommodation if you need a business overnight deal

This is the second time we've stayed at this Premier Inn. Staff are very helpful. Rooms very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. The only tiny criticism was that the bathroom light switch was not immediately obvious, being next to the room door not the bathroom.

As readers of my reviews may note I stay in a lot of Premier Inn's and this one is a good one ! Out of the two main Budget hotels Travelodge and Premier, Premier is the better choice, and this example is particularly good.
