Premier Inn now refurbished. Meals available, including breakfast, across courtyard. It is a great location if you wish to visit Cardiff or Newport for whatever reason. Very proximate to M4 junction 28.

The only issue was the room size. We have stayed at several Premier Inn hotels in recent years and would say that the rooms, and bathroom in particular, were smaller than average. With 2 adults and a teenager in one room we found it crampted to say the least with insufficient hanging space for clothes for our 3 night stay....

The room was brand new but the size is not good at all for a family and as we requested the cot my little boy could not move. The lication si quite good it was quite even if we had the view on the main road was very good. The heating was a little bit noisy but still good.

The reception team was friendly and helpful. The en suite room we had was compact and had all we needed for an overnight stay. The bed was comfy especially a good firm mattress, but nowhere to sit besides the bed. It's proximity to the M4 made it easily accessible. There is Wi-Fi but the free version we opted for was...

We stayed at this Premier Inn because we were attending a family's lunch party. It was an ideal location just off M4, plenty of parking and rooms were good value for money, decor was a little tired but good enough for what we paid

You know what you are getting with Premier Inn Hotels. They are always clean and the bed comfy. This Cardiff East one is no exception. The staff were really friendly and helpful. And the pub on site it a big plus point!

Ideal location with easy access to motorways and major roads. Easy to find using written instructions. Very quiet room at the rear of the hotel - even with the window open! Very comfortable bed affording a good nights sleep. Breakfast in nearby restaurant very satisfying. Staff in both locations very helpful.
