“Premier Inn Cardiff Roath”
Reviewed 11 March 2013

Very good hotel. Stayed here for a university open day in Cardiff the location has a bus stop a short walk away from the hotel taking you straight into Cardiff City centre in about 10 - 15 mins. There is also a Mcdonalds, M&S and plenty of other food outlets on the estate outside of the Hotel which was great for being able to get a meal or a bite to eat.
There is plenty of parking, and as it is just behind the David Lloyd centre its nice and quiet you can't hear the busy main road. Also quite nice view from our window considering its industrial location, you could see trees and a field.
The bed was comfortable, cushions not to my taste - however they gave 2 different cushions one firmer than the other so you could choose (just im used to a feather one!) Clean bathroom and good shower. Spacious room, also we were suprised that the bed my brother slept on was a proper bed, not just a couch like we've had at travelodge before. Helpful staff, overall a very good stay!

Usual very good service expected of a Premier Inn. Straightforward directions, and plenty of parking space right outside. Comfy bed and a good breakfast. Very friendly receptionist and gave us a room right at the end of the corridor away from the "Saturday night in Cardiff" youngsters. That said, even though busy the place was quiet during the night. David Lloyd a bit different, but food fine.

Room Tip: Room 44 is the far end of 1st floor, where the car park ends - so presumably the quieter end.

Comfortable bed. Nice clean room. Design very box like but good place to crash after a busy day. Its hidden away in amongst industrial units so no great view but easy parking. Didn't try out the breakfast or gym facilities. Had a choice of soft or hard pillows which I was impressed by.

Room Tip: I was on the first floor overlooking the car park. Was lovely and quiet.

This Premier Inn is tucked away on an Industrial Estate which does mean it is quiet. Downside you need to walk a few hundred yards through indoor tennis courts and corridors to get breakfast in the David lloyd leisure centre. It was also cold weather and not sufficient heating. Beds as always really comfortable. My door to the bathroom would also not shut.

the room given to us smelt odd, we noticed mildew in the corner, so we opened a window we turned a blind eye to this,my wife then pointed out the bin had not been emptied what was left in the bin turned our stomachs, we have a picture , we will forward to management if requested,
the reception was horrified at our findings they gave us another room which was clean and offered extra coffee if we wanted it, i dont think customer service went far enough in this case we have always used premier inns but feel let down this time
also as earlier review room was cold

Nice sized rooms, well decorated and friendly staff. Unfortunately I would try to avoid a ground floor room as the floorboards above need some work, you will not sleep until the occupants above decide to stop moving about.

Make sure you adjust the setting on the heater otherwise it will fire up half way through the night and wake you up!
