“Lovely Stay - Very pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed 25 October 2007

We stayed at this hotel just for a night whilst we were in the area visiting family. We had never stopped at a Premier Inn before but after having bad experiences with similar chains (travel lodge/holiday inn etc) we were not looking forward to it! However, we were very pleasantly surprised - the hotel is situated just off a large roundabout but we found it very peaceful with no traffic noise (or any other noise) at all.

From the outside, the building looked fairly new and modern and the welcome at reception was excellent - friendly and efficient. We were given a non-smoking family room on the ground floor - exactly as we had asked for. The room was excellent - spotlessly clean (which we have never found in similar chain hotels) and seemingly newly decorated. The child's bed had been made up already (we've had to do this ourselves in the past) and there were extra pillows already provided. There were plenty of tea/coffee/sugar sachets - we didn't have to ask for anything else which was definitely a first.

The bathroom was a very welcome relief - sparkling clean and we could even get a shower without being scared that the shower curtain would touch our legs!! (the last budget hotel we stopped in we had 2 room changes due to disgustingly dirty and stained shower curtains!)

Breakfast was served in the pub/restaurant adjacent to the hotel which was a really lovely space and suited all of us - mainly buffet style with the cooked breakfast being ordered and served after we'd had our fill of the cereal/fruit and pastries!! Very good value too as kids eat free.

All in all we had a lovely nights sleep here and will definately be using this hotel again - budget chains take note - this is how it's supposed to be done!!

I agree with the previous reviewer, that this hotel in in a convenient location. It is a little more worn than the other Premier Travel Inns we stayed at in the UK during our 2 week stay. As with other PTI's, the windows are safety chained to only open a few inches and we found our room to be uncomfortably warm.

We really enjoyed the Carvery dinner at the adjacent Cedar Tree Pub. We had carved pork, beef and turkey, along with excellant Yorkshire Pudding and dressing balls, with a potato/vegetable buffet. This was a very great dinner at a good price.

The Caerphilly Castle is worth visiting and the bakery across the street from the Castle provides a nice rest following the castle visit. The hotel is about a mile North of the Castle.

In summary, we were glad we visitied Caerphilly, loved the dinner at the Cedar Tree Pub, but were slightly disappointed by the condition of the hotel.

It's a tall order for a hotel to keep three generations of anyone's family happy, but the Cedar Tree Premier Travel Inn managed it admirably.

The beds were comfy, everything was clean and in good order, staff were welcoming and helpful. This is a budget hotel in a very convenient spot if, like our group, you needed easy access to all the major routes, Cardiff, M4 motorway and points north. It also has a bus stop outside which will get you into the centre of Caerphilly in minutes, from where you could jump on a train and be in Cardiff in 20 minutes.

I can't personally vouch for the newly refurbished carvery and pub alongside, but I can say that the locals are beating a path to its door, so that must speak volumes. Apparently the best time to arrive is between 12.15 and 12.30. So now you know!
