A very good Premier Inn. Ours room, as usual with Premier Inn's was exceptionally clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Air conditioning was a bonus. There were road works outside the hotel when we stayed; as pre warned on the hotel's website, but we arrived at 5pm and left mid-morning and weren't disturbed at all. Lots of free parking. Good position, quiet area with a large Morrisons supermarket 5 minutes drive away, and an OK restaurant next door.
Only criticism is floorboards in corridor were a bit noisy and we heard the occupants of the room above stomping around late at night and early in the morning - more a criticism of them than the hotel!
Be aware traffic is awful between Cardiff and Barry at around 4pm.
