Impressed from the outset. I telephoned to request a quiet refurbished room and was allocated a quiet, refurbished room. Friendly helpful staff. Impressed with the refurbished room. Sockets both sides of the bed - hurrah! Even a USB socket. Large TV mounted on wall, directly in front of bed - fantastic. Chrome sockets and switches - aesthetically pleasing. Improved lighting...

We always stay at a Premier Inn when we are visiting family or friends or touring. You can rely on the clean comfortable rooms and the excellent hospitality of all the staff. This Premier Inn at Cardiff City South was no exception, everything was perfect.

Stay there for few days, the room was clean and convenient. The staff were polite. Would stay there again. Which there was a lift for luggage but not a major issue. The parking lot was just big enough. There is a restaurant next to it but did not try it.

Lovely service. Greeted really warmly by the guy on the desk. The place is now lagging behind over PI's I've stayed in. The rooms need upgrading to match their more 'modern' look that seems to have been rolled out over the last 2 years. Doors aren't very sound-proofed either - you can hear people conversing at the other end of... More

Staff here were really friendly. 15 min walk into city centre past the prison. We had one of the regular rooms, the rooms at the far end of the hotel are newly revamped and really nice. All the same, comfortable enough bed. I feel over priced, but this could have been because of the first rugby international that weekend.

I arrived at the hotel to a warm welcome by the staff of the premier inn. They made checking in easy and very welcoming. Me and my partner was given clear instructions on how to get to our room. We walked into a clean and well presented room. The bed was comfortable and made my sleep so much better. There... More

Poor dinner, long wait for service, noisy room. This Premier Inn stay was very much below expectation and we were very dissapointed overall. Side salad returned as it was of poor quality and looked really tired. Traffic noise was loud and TV from another room was blaring until 3.3O am so sleep was very difficult to come by. Was not...

Hi Pauline Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Cardiff City South, Premier Inn. I'm sad to read that you're not happy with this stay. Our TV volumes are set to have a limit in each room which cannot be overridden by guests, this helps us to ensure that other rooms are not disturbed by a loud... More

Cant fault the hotel, Staff friendly and room clean and up to the usual Premier standards. Problems with noise as people walked along the corridor and even though we were staying in the family rooms and the hall ways asked for people to be quiet lots of people choose to be extra loud which kept me and my daughter awake...

For 6 of us to stay & have breakfast for £100 is brilliant value for money. The room was plenty big enough. I thought I'd be sharing my bed with one of my sons, but we had a double & 2 singles in our room, which was ideal. I have no complaints about the room, other than it being a... More
