Excellent experience with great facilities at a fantastic price. Staff were very welcoming! The room had all the comfort factors for families with small children. After a long day travelling so nice to relax in a clean and calm environment.

Room Tip: Great family room with so much space.

First time with premier inn. i will definatley use this chain again. i usually stay at either the village or the novotel in cardiff however this hotel beats them hands down. the reception girls couldn't do enough to help (i locked myself out twice..whoops). the wi fi is only £3 for 24 hours which i think is excellent value. the rooms were huge and very clean and the.n wall mounted tv is excellent. as others have said the breakfast and evening meals are taken in the David Lloyd place next door i found this a refreshing change and not an issue. As others have also said it is tucked away which again is not an issue its very quiet i would recommend this hotel to all. As for a budget chain it deserves better i will be using premier from now on thanks guys :-)

Stayed here for 3 nights 30/7/12 - 1/8/12 & I must say this was a really enjoyable experience especially the staff who were very friendly & welcoming --A cheaper price for the breakfast would be one of the changes I would like to see .the other change would be to give all guests FREE WiFi access & these 2 small changes in my opinion would make this place an excellent value place to stay

Was very pleased with our stay which was for 4 nights. Staff were extremely nice. Hotel was quite due to location so no noise from traffice, late night drinkers etc. had acccess to David Lloyd gym for £10 a day which was perfect as we only used it twice. Free parking and just down the road was shop. 5 mibd druve from city and about 7 from cardiff bay
Needed extra towels, teat just asked at reception and they said to help our self to how ever many we liked.
Very pleased even had a fan in the room.

Was very impressed by the cleanliness of this hotel. Tucked away in the David Lloyd complex meant you were not disturbed by the noise of city life, but within a 5 min drive from the centre. Reception could not have been more helpful, For which I was very grateful. Would recommend. Breakfast In the DL centre was good value and free for under 16's .

Good points;

Really clean rooms and very quiet. Good sized TV with plenty of channels and clean bathroom. Staff very friendly and polite. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty.

Bad [Indifferent] Points;

The hotel is attached to a David Lloyd Gym and you have to follow the curtained path through a load of tennis courts, then some squash courts, followed by a corridor, then some more tennis courts to get to the bar of the gym to have your breakfast. It is poorly signed and just plain weird!!! I am sure this could be made more appealing....

On another note, the signage to actually find the hotel from the road is also pretty crap. As you have no chance of seeing it from the road, you need to look for the David Lloyd signs right on the bed in the classy industrial estate that you approach it from.
