“Very Nice Budget Hotel”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

We stayed at the Premier Inn City Center in Cardiff when traveling in the UK. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. The room while basic was very clean, the bed comfortable and the breakfast substantial. The hotel is conveniently located with all of the major downtown attractions easily within walking distance. We felt it was a great deal for the money.

Great central spot for Cardiff city centre, plenty of bars and restaurants. Good wifi and usual Premier Inn room to a very high standard. You should know that there is no free parking at this location, but a 24hr £11 deal at a nearby NPC called the Rapport.

Highly recommended hotel with large rooms and great facilities.

I was very happy with this choice of ours to stay here for a long weekend.
It is in the central of Cardiff, only a minute away from the busy shopping area, and just across from Queen Street station if you arrive by train. Yet it's so peaceful and quite!

We, my partner and I, had a huge room, with a big window with a little overview to the city;
we were on the top, 10th floor. The room was very clean and nicely arranged.
A big desk was by the window, useful either for those who are on business, or families with kids.

Adjustable air condition in the room; drinking facilities, tv...
Wifi available, close parking.

Breakfast is additional, but worth to include in the booking.
All you can eat buffet with cooked breakfast and also big selection of continental food.
Kids breakfast is free! How can you beat that?

The staff were very friendly, helpful and polite.
There is always somebody available for a question or two.

If you visit Cardiff you either stay in a Hotel in the centre or to the Bay where a lot going on. Both are good choices, depend on what your planes are. The Bay is 20-30 minutes walking distance from the centre, also trains are running frequently,in every 12 minutes and the last service is just before midnight.
Bus number 6 go to the Bay too, although I advise you to check on Sundays or Bank Holidays, public transport might not run till late.

I enjoyed my stay, couldn't be a better choice to visit and stay in Cardiff.

We stayed here for a short weekend away. It is in a great location with the city centre being 3 minutes away and the shopping centre also right next to it. The room was very clean and tidy with a lovely view outside our bedroom window.

A Great Weekend Away!

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Friendly welcoming staff. Family room clean & just as expected. House keeping staff very friendly & hospitable.

This was the first time I have had a buffet style cooked breakfast - I'm used to Premier Inn's table service where your order is taken and your breakfast is brought to you. Have to be honest I was VERY impressed with the buffet style, the food was hot and you help yourself to what you want. Lots of choice too...

Staff such as Kate, Poppy, Lauren & Lucy were very friendly to my kids & I - a big thank you to them.

Don't forget you get discounted car park rates at the NCP car park opposite.

The only suggestion I would make for improvement is to work on a better meal reservation system. I was here for 3 nights and ate in the restaurant each evening. One morning I reserved a table for that evening with the man on reception. He wrote the details down on paper but when it came to the evening the restaurant had not received the info and had no details of my booking. I was then informed they were full! However, they did manage to find me a table but this mix up shouldn't have happened in the first place...

I would definitely recommend this friendly & efficient Premier Inn for the good central location.
