Good location if you are not too bothered about being in the city itself, though can be hard to find the first time you visit. You have to drive into the David Lloyd entrance, waiting for the barrier to rise. If you arrive in the dark as I did, there is no lighting available in front of the Premier Inn...

This is a typical Premier Inn. Room comfortable, bed great. No need to have a degree in mechanical engineering to get the shower right. Clean and tidy. No facilities apart from vending machines. Location in the middle of an industrial estate not pleasant. £10 taxi to centre of Cardiff. I was staying for a rugby weekend and the price was...

Stayed here recently for a match in Cardiff. The staff of the hotel were very friendly and really made the stay very pleasant. The hotel is slightly away from the center of Cardiff, but the hotel were able to order Taxis into town very quickly. The rooms are bright and spacious and the bathroom was clean. Overall I would definitely...

The staff in Cardiff Roath made our stay such a wonderful experience. I do think that as soon as you walk into a hotel it set the experience straight away and what an amazing team they have...Karen who welcomed us has amazing customer service skills and made our stay amazing just by the warm welcome we received.

This Premier Inn is very hard to find, they have a sign up which is covered by bushes and trees which you can only see coming from one direction on the Ipswich road, once you've driven around the estate a couple of times you might be able to see part of the purple sign advertising the hotel, once you have...

Stayed here for the Ireland/Canada WC match. Less than £10 to city centre in a taxi. Staff were very friendly. Hotel is clean and beds were comfortable. Wifi is good. We didn't have the breakfast. Good stay and good value for money. Lidl & Morrisons are about half a kilometre walk away. Hotel is situated in an industrial estate but...

The last few Premier Inns I've stayed in for business have been a bit tired and worn; and the staff rather pushy. It was really nice therefore to check into the PI in Roath and be greeted by Martina and her colleagues with a warm smile and swift professionalism. Always a pleasant greeting on subsequent days by name and no...
