Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We needed a stop over on our journey from London to South West Wales. We arrived late at night and left after breakfast. We were welcomed warmly and helpfully by the Receptionist who explained all we needed to know. The room was clean and comfortable with everything necessary for an overnight stay. The bathroom was better than some more expensive and up market hotels we have stayed in! Similarly the breakfast.

Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for your kind review. Drving nowadays is extremely stressful, especially at night after a hard day in work. All you want is to arrive at your hotel, be genuinely welcomed, have a simple check-in and retire to your clean and comfortable room - and if you have the energy, have a nice cup of tea before bed. Sounds familiar? Well, that's what Premier Inn do best! And I am so pleased that this was your experience. The Reception Team are well trained and recognise instinctively when guests just want to encounter a smooth process from car park to bedroom. Guests are suprised that they can check in to Premier Inns up until 4 - 5am! A distinct advantage if you have to work that day, have an event the next and your destination is miles away. Both the Reception and the Houskeeping Teams were delighted by your comments. Hopefully we'll see you again soon - but don't just pass through, stay awhile and enjoy the area.
Kind regards

Nice location and nice and peaceful in the evening so can get a good nights sleep. Petrol station, macdonalds and pub with restaurant nearby and M4 just a few minutes away.
Staff were brilliant and always really cheerful

Dear Guest
Your heading 'spotless and comfortable' delighted the Housekeeping Team! They work extremely hard to ensure that your room creates an excellent first impression - clean, fresh and welcoming.
Being so close to the M4 worries some guests however, they awake refreshed from an undisturbed sleep - and rather surprised too, if I am honest, that there is little traffic noise. Across the courtyard is a lovely Table Table restaurant serving a delicious menu - especially the All You Can Eat freshly cooked breakfast and the Meal Deal is a real bargain!
As you mentioned, the staff are a 'smiley lot' and we do enjoy meeting new and returning guests. Thank you so much for your lovely comments - you have made our day!
Kind regards
Maureen

It's location is ideal if you're heading to Cardiff on the M4. Just off junction35 The staff were very competent and friendly. Nothing is too much bother!
The room was very clean and tidy and quite adequate in every way. The hotel, being a 20 minutes drive from Cardiff, is fantastic value for money and the restaurant is well worth a visit.

Dear Guest

Sincere thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. Many of our guests choose our hotel because of its excellent location - Cardiff in 20 minutes (as you discovered!), Swansea in 25 minutes, the beach in 15, the Designer Outlet in 10 and a delicious meal in 1 minute - in our Table Table restaurant, just across the courtyard! You can indulge yourself without having to worry about designated drivers or taxis - because it's just a short stroll back to your warm and inviting room.
Makes me wish that I was a guest here sometimes! Don't be a stranger, come back and see us soon.
Kind regards
Maureen

We had a family room with good kids beds. The room was nice and clean and was good value for money. The attached Table Table restaurant had Kids Eat Free which was great and we were able to book a table when we booked the hotel. Would recommend this hotel if you are attending an event in Cardiff as only a short drive away.

Dear Guest
Sincere thanks for taking the time to review your stay. Your comments are much appreciated by the staff teams in both the hotel and the restaurant..
Families are often surprised by the spaciousness of our rooms which can accommodate two adults, two children and a baby in one of our travel cots....and still leave room for children to amuse themselves with our childrens' fun packs which we issue to our mini guests.
Children always 'eat free' at breakfast time however, as you discovered, they also eat free at Easter too! Which is quite a saving really.
Please take a look at premierinn.com where our £25 room deal is up and running.....have a browse and bag a bargain! Or why not come back and see us here? There's lots more to see and do.
Kind regards
Maureen

Dear Guest
How kind of you to review your stay with us here at Premier Inn - we are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit. The Housekeepers were delighted with your comments on the cleanliness and ambience of the room.
There has been a recent menu change at the Table Table restaurant and the choices, whether snacks or meals, are delish!
The staff in the hotel and the restaurant are well trained and endeavour to make each guest's experience one to remember.
Check out premierinn.com for our £25 room deal - and try our 'all you can eat' Premier Breakfast'. See you soon hopefully.
Kind regards
Maureen

We stayed for one night and found it very clean and quiet. The shower was brilliant. We were on business in Swansea so it was ideal as we also had a meal with family in Cardiff. Staff were very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Would heartily recommend.

Dear Guest
You made an excellent choice when you decided to book a room with us here at Premier Inn M4 Junction 35. Although we are next to the motorway, the hotel is tucked away in a quiet corner. The Housekeepers work extremely hard to maintain our high standards of room cleanliness and make every effort to ensure that rooms are fresh and welcoming.
The hotel is fortunate to be situated almost halfway between Cardiff and Swansea - yet within 15 minutes you can be walking on the beach at Ogmore-by-Sea.
I am sure that you have now realised that one night isn't quite enough to appreciate this area fully - so why don't you book a longer stay and we can advise you on the 'must see' places nearby.
Kind regards
Maureen

I recommend this hotel, the bed was most comfortable & if you like good food the menu at the adjacent Harvester was excellent & plentiful. For convenience the closeness of this Premier Inn to the M4 is very good & because of the double glazing throughout, noise from the motorway cannot be heard ( & also I found that visiting both Bridgend & Porthcawl a good experience.

Dear Guest
What makes a 'Good Hotel' - most people would say....good location, good staff, good bed, good food...........actually....everything you mentioned in your review!
Our location is ideal for business or pleasure, our staff genuinely enjoy meeting new guests and are really happy when new guests become old friends, returning time and again. Our Hypnos beds are sooooooooooooo cosy and comfy, you can't help but feel refreshed after a night's sleep! Then it's a short stroll to the restaurant where a freshly cooked, all-you-can-eat breakfast awaits.
Who says that travelling is hard work?
Kind regards
Maureen
