Great location just off the M4 - easy to see but not so easy to get too! Didn't find the parking an issue but perhaps that is because the shopping centre next door was closing when I arrived. It is an old holiday inn express and you could tell from the bathroom design and the noise from people in the...

Thanks for taking this very informative review. We're glad you enjoyed your breakfast. We try to check noise levels by walking through the hotel from time to time between 22:00 and 07:00. I'm sorry you were disturbed by noise from inside the hotel

Stayed on Saturday 3rd December attending a wedding nearby. Room was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Staff were good and helpful and it's conveniently located for M4 , local outlet centre and Sainsburys if you want a quick cup of tea and a slice of toast. For what we paid hotel represented good value.

Quiet room on...

Stayed here on a Saturday night while working over the weekend. Hotel is good room warm and clean and a very comfy bed. Check in was quick and easy. Parking - hotel has 69 rooms but only 45 parking spaces which are shared with the Harvester Restaurant and KFC Drive through, however you can use the spaces at the KFC.

Premier Inns are called budget hotels, but they are better than most so-called budget hotels (although they are also more expensive than most, unless you book really early). You get a good-sized room with a desk and standard good decoration and comfortable bed. For breakfast, you get a pot with really hot water (usually) and porridge if you want. For...

Thanks for taking the time to review the hotel. We're pleased you were happy with the hotel. Parking is problematic when other guests do not respect the greater need of others. If you brought this to our attention we would certainly ask a works van to be moved from a disabled bay

Have stayed here twice now. Cant fault the location, hotel and staff. Nice bonus of having a shopping precinct behind you plus a cinema. Great location for trips to Cardiff, Porthcawl, Neath and Caerphilly.
