Ideal location if you want to be a little out of the centre (where it is quiet) and close to the motorway for arrival and departure. Great breakfast served in David Lloyd and of course you have the outstanding bed for a great nights sleep

Nice friendly staff - quiet, not all Rugby fans are loud (though I was decades ago) good clean room, great breakfast and safe car parking and let us leave it there till after the match. Into town on the bus which is close. What I didn't like is that Cardiff City council don't seem to be able to get their...

I stay in a lot of Premier inn's due to traveling about for work and this is easily the worst one I have stopped in, location wise it is not too far from the city centre, but can be hard to find, and not very well sign posted. After checking in I went to my room and the key did...

Book in was quick and easy. Car Park could do with some decent directions on how to get to the front of the hotel (it was heavy rain). Was a very cheap place to stay. Room 44, had a stupidly small convector heater to heat the large room, controlled from a thermostat outside the bathroom, the room was really chilly....

Clean, ideal next to David Lloyd Tennis Centre with swimming pool. Close enough to Cardiff about 2 1/2 miles away. Taxi cheap enough between £8 - £10. Friendly reception staff. Clean room. Only thing had to go next door for breakfast not ideal in the rain.

We stayed in this premier inn for a long weekend. The hotel itself was nice however it was poorly sign posted and we passed it a few times. There is a sign saying Premier Inn however it was very bad. You had to drive through what looks like an industrial estate, you come up to a barrier which you have...

We stayed at the hotel when attending a football match at Cardiff City Stadium, when reading the feedback from other before we attended I was a little concerned about what it would be like. But all was fine easy access off the A48, I can see why people find it difficult to find but our sat nav took us to...
