“Great hotel staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

Initially hard to locate but a warm welcome awaits you on arrival.Stayed along with my elderly parents for rugby weekend combined with visiting old friends.Staff very genuine and extemley helpful with all our requests.Slightly inconvenient walk to the restaurant for elderly/infirm.Handy location to access Cardiff city and the motorway.Nice rooms .Will stay here again and would recommend to friends and family.

Rugby weekend and was lucky enough to get a room here. Usual great rooms, service breakfast etc.

This one is a bit unusual as it is attached to the David Lloyd tennis centre where breakfast is provided (indoor walk) and the bar is located (30 second outside walk). The bar has an adult seftion and a childrens play area with Dvd player. A real hit!

Bar closes a bit early but is very chilled and great for families

Taxi to Cardiff between £9 and £12

Our first stay at Premier Inn and was very surprised at the large room which was spotless. All the staff were very helpful. The continental buffet breakfast at David Lloyds was great value. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from bus stops where you can get several buses into the city centre which is much beter than driving in and finding parking. We would definately stay here again.

I stayed here for 2 nights in December 2012 and passed a comfortable stay. The room felt spacious, was clean and had everything I needed in it - bed, desk (with lamp) and chair, armchair, wardrobe, kettle and tea things and hair dryer. The bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom had a standard bath with a shower over it and the shower was powerful and hot.

Breakfast/dinner could be purchased in the adjoining David Lloyd leisure centre. I had dinner there and felt it was very much like Weatherspoons food but more expensive, and eating in a leisure centre definitely gives dining an unusual ambiance! However, it was convenient.

Staff were helpful and friendly.

I do however echo other reviewers who have said the location is a bit difficult to find and I wouldn't have wanted to stay here without a car.

All in all an uninspiring but cheap, clean and comfortable hotel.

We'd never stayed at a Premier Inn before and because it was only 20 pound per night I had my reservations. It is in a weird position but the rooms were roomy, spotless, comfortable and the bathrooms had great baths and showers. It connects to David Lloyd's and that is where you can have breakfast in the mornings. As we were visiting family we had no need for anything more than the room. This place is well worth staying in if you are on a tight budget and have your own transport.

Very good hotel. Very clean and with the special offer a bargain price. Don't be put off by the location behind the tennis centre- a little difficult to find. It's very close to good places to eat and city centre short drive away. Highly recommend.
