Booked for a one night stay. Nothing basically wrong with the hotel. Check-in was easy, room was clean and bed very comfortable. Double room also has a single bed in it so nowhere to sit other than on the beds - would have preferred chairs or a sofa. No toiletries provided except soap dispenser and combined "hair and body gel"...

This hotel was really difficult to find especially as I was arriving late at night. You need to go into the David Lloyd Sports Centre and its behind that. Breakfast is in the sports centre which you can also use for a small fee. Great as its quiet at night and the leisure centre was a bonus.

Everything you need from a family hotel room - good sized TV, enough room for 2 singles and a double. Breakfast at the neighbouring David Lloyd went down well, with tablets for the kids to play on while we finished off. Next time will bring sports/swimming stuff and pay for half price day passes to make the most of the...

The check-in staff were very helpful. The breakfasts were served next door at the David Lloyd gym and were very good. The only problem is finding this destination as you need to go through the David Lloyd car park. Very good bedroom and free wi-fi.

We have a very enjoyable weekend in Cardiff. We stayed at the Premier Inn, Roath, which was convenient for us. Slightly out of Cardiff City Centre, but convenient for the vibrant suburb of Roath. The hotel was comfortable and clean, the reception staff were warm and friendly and we were made to feel welcome. There was plenty of tea and...

Generally clean and loved that I could open the window (no air conditioning), however, the restaurant is in the sports complex next door - great if you have a family I imagine, but not the most peaceful dining experience. Plenty of free parking though and the car park was pass coded.

Clean quiet travelodge, a little out of the town centre, £9 taxi to get to town. lots of car parking space. Breakfast is at the David Lloyd club next door. It's fine and would have no issue staying here again.

I stayed here as part of a party of 12 for my hen do (it also clashed with the England vs Wales 6 nations rugby). The staff were more than accommodating especially due to a complication with the booking. They ordered us taxis on numerous occasions and made sure we were well looked after!! The rooms were clean and tidy...

For a short stay, this hotel was good. The rooms were clean and staff were very friendly. Local supermarkets, shops and a few restaurants are within walking distance however the location of this hotel is in an industrial area. This didn't cause any problems, it was a quiet area and I did not have any problems with noise in the...

The room and service was what was expected from a Premiere Inn - friendly, helpful staff plus a clean, comfortable room -and I have no complaints. The walk around to the David Lloyd Centre for breakfast and an evening meal was not ideal but did not cause a problem. Whilst the menu was not extensive for an evening meal it...
