Reviewed 14 May 2012

Noise from outside is awful, especially if you are travelling with children.

As budget hotels go, this is a pretty good one. Its location is good - in the heart of the city, ten minutes' walk from both bus and train stations and five minutes from the seafront and marina - although it is on a street packed with bars and clubs and the immediate vicinity can get very rowdy at weekends. The rooms are surprisingly spacious, with smart bathrooms and supremely comfortable beds. We tried out the sofa bed in the room and decided that it, too, was easily comfortable enough to provide a good night's sleep had we needed another bed. The TV offered all the digital channels, including radio, but the screen was quite small and not widescreen so the picture had black bars at top and bottom.

The all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast was varied, of good quality and excellent value for money.

However, this hotel seems to be used almost exclusively by hen parties, stag parties and groups of lads away for a weekend of drinking, and few of them show any consideration for other guests. We were woken several times throughout the night by shouting, screeching and noisy behaviour in the corridor outside the room.

In summary, this hotel is a good choice if you can get one of the rock-bottom internet rates and don't mind a bit of noise in the early hours. Otherwise, you should consider one of the other hotels in the city that often have special deals and a rather less rowdy clientele.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room - but I doubt whether any room in the hotel can be guaranteed to be free of noi...

Stayed at the Premier Inn Swansea City Centre. Usual standard of cleanliness and rooms. Reception staff were very welcoming and friendly. Restaurant food was nice but it wasn't anything to get excited about and provided meals as a convenience, although Frankie & Bennys & TGI Fridays are right outside the front door of the hotel.

Wind Street, which is where the hotel is situated, is also where all the main nightlife is for Swansea City. Therefore it is ideal if that's what you are visiting for. Otherwise bring earplugs as it was noisy during my midweek stay, so weekends could be even busier.

Usual parking rates of £10.50 per night (24hrs) in NCP Car Park right next door, although it is not easily signposted as being for the hotel guests.

There is a 5 min walk to the City Centre and main shopping areas. With many more restaurants and coffee shops available on route.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor (3rd Floor) are better for noise reduction

Stayed at the Premier Inn Swansea Waterfront and it was as expected. Good service, lovely and clean, asked for a quiet room and thats just what we got. Parking a bit expensive although lower than if we had sourced it ourselves. Didnt eat there so cant comment. Would recommend and would stay again.

Room Tip: Just ask for a quiet room they do listen.
