“Good Value for Money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2011

Stayed for 2 nights July 2011. Couldn't fault anything. Rooms were clean and tidy, car parking was good. There's a decent pub within walking distance that serves cheap and chearful food if you don't fancy eating in the hotel.

As previous reviews have stated, the building itself is standard Premier Inn (which is a good standard - modern, reliable, 'does what it says on the tin.') The value for money is excellent. Our experience of the food and bar was also very good, including a particularly good value and well-cooked steak. However the thing that made this trip excellent for us (after staying here for 4 nights) was the staff. To the last person, they were a delight - really helpful, pleasant and well motivated. In fact we were running a training course in two other Premier Inns in Cardiff (Roath and the City Centre), and in both of those, the staff were equally excellent. Well done Premier Inns in Cardiff! Oh, and if you don't want to have to drive or get a cab into the city centre, there's a bus from just down the road (58) or another one from a little bit further (Cardiff East park and ride) which will take you straight there in 15-20mins.

This was a close call between three stars and four. I went for four due to the friendliness of the staff.
As other reviewers have mentioned, don't be put off by the 70's office block look as you approach. Inside it's 100% standard Premier Inn decor and you'll feel right at home if you've been to one before.
If you're a light sleeper it's best to ask for a room on the car park side, away from the busy A48 road. Which brings me to an important point; the website includes the little icon "AC" for this hotel, which I take as meaning air-conditioned rooms. Well, our room on level 6 was definitely *not* air-conditioned. There was actually a desk fan provided to try to cool the room down in the summer, given that the window only opens about 6 inches or so. Fortunately, our stay coincided with a spell of cool weather so it wasn't too much of an issue, but if like me you hate trying to sleep in a hot stuffy room, bear this in mind.

The restaurant was ok. One meal which my wife sent back because it wasn't very nice was promptly deducted from the bill and the waitress showed a very good attitude throughout. We didn't try the breakfast.

Location-wise, it probably isn't the best but we were touring in the area so we just drove out in the morning and returned in the evening. Plenty of spaces in the eccentrically-shaped car park.

If you need internet access but find the cost of the wi-fi a bit steep, it's worth noting that the 3G coverage here is very good, so you can always use that instead.

Other than the temperature, the room was fine; clean as ever and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit on the small side and the shower a bit weak. Sound-proofing between the rooms was better than average; the thump of doors closing as people left in the morning was not a problem.

All-in-all, a slightly disappointing stay, improved by the excellent staff. I wouldn't rush back here but would do so if necessary.

We stayed in this Premier Inn when we came to visit Cardiff for the first time. It is a bit out of Cardiff City, but as we had a car, it only took 10 Minutes to get into the City Center and to the Quay.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and the beds are very comfortable. Breakfast is very good value for money and was enough to kept us going until Dinner.

We stayed here while the Take That concert was on. Staff were really helpful and the rooms were very good standard. The hotel staff are well organised and efficient. The hotel is good value in my opinion.
