“Dawn in Cardiff North”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Excellent hotel, comfy bed as promised and the pillows were so soft. Staff great and very quiet even though it's next to a motorway. Great access to Cardiff.
The breakfast was great and great value for money.

Excellent, friendly staff that go the extra mile!

Right on the bus route, although takes half hour - 40 mins to City Centre, although park & ride nearby is quicker.

Enjoyable stay and wouldn't hesitate to stop here again....especially at £29 a night :)

Yes might be a Premier Inn, budget for some. But the staff at Cardiff North are excellent, from the front desk welcome to breakfast service staff... well done, you've nailed it! Selection at breakfast excellent, plenty of parking, clean modern rooms. Only down side is its a £12 to £15 taxi to the centre, but it is very close to the motorway connections.

We stayed Friday and Saturday evenings as we were visiting our Grandsons.
Very friendly staff, a very nice greeting from the receptionist as you check inn.
The restaurant staff are very friendly, Drew the manager was very helpful and friendly nothing too much trouble, along with all staff, Helen, Clair, and Liam were very good. The food is good also.
Lovely white fluffy towels also. The only downside is that the Restaurant needs up grading for pushchairs and wheelchairs, as people were having problems.
We will be visiting again fairly soon.

Have been staying here for 4 nights on business and the staff are very friendly and efficient. The rooms are ok but just in need of a repaint but are very clean. Bathroom is small but usable. Due to the awful weather I have eaten in the restaurant each night rather than go out and get soaked. Staff have mostly been great and the food was fine, mainly of good pub grub standard. Breakfast is buffet style and is a little cold but I guess this is due to the place not being very busy so the food sits there.
Overall I am pleasantly surprised by this budget hotel.

This hotel was much larger than I had expected, but had plenty of free parking and was convenient for where I was working. Reception allowed me to check in early, the room was clean and I slept well. However, it was quite warm and the heating controls were not as advanced as at most other Premier Inns. In addition the en-suite bathroom was rather compact, although functional. The hotel is fine but I have stayed at better Premier Inns in the area.
