The one thing that attracted us to this particular Premier Inn was probably one of the main reasons it might put others off - the location. Knowing Swansea a little, I didn't want to choose the central Wind Street as I figured it would be really noisey at night (it's party central) and the waterside location didn't have nearby parking. I had a toddler with me so needed quiet and be able to unload a mountain of toys etc for our 2 night stay!
The hotel is located on a retail park, night next to a 24 ASDA, which was very handy for grabbing various vital bits and bobs I'd forgotten. Despite being in the corner closest to the store, I didn't hear a thing - lovely and quiet. Not even air con, or other motor type noises. There was very little noise inside the hotel either, despite the receptionist saying they were busy that weekend. Ample parking for all.
The receptionist that greated us was lovely. After a 5 hour drive we found ourselves arriving a little early, but that was no trouble to the staff who went to see if there was a room ready for us. She was very attentive and my little boy was full of smiles for her (and the odd checky frown which delighted her even more). It wasn't long before we found our room - a good sized family room with the cot all ready for us. Very clean, very comfy bedroom. The bathroom was also spotless - couldn't fault anything.
At night we didn't hear a sound either - despite being so shattered we all fell asleep at 9:30pm. Plenty of hot water for all three of us.
On day 2 we made the mistake of going over ASDA for breaky, thinking we would get better value for money. Egh - don't bother! On the day we left, we choose to indulge on 2 continentals in the hotel restaurant instead. We left stuffed! So much to choose from, and everything was lovely and fresh. My little boy did well out of it as well (he wasn't charged because he was so young - little did they know, this boy knows how to EAT)! I only wished that we had had breakfast there the previous morning too.
Again, the staff in the restaurant were really friendly and attentive, especially the lady who went and found crayons for my boy (who then tried to eat them too).
Usually I stay with friends in Swansea, but I would definately stay here again in the future!
