Premier Inn - Cardiff


An integral part of the Cardiff Waterside regeneration scheme.

Another new member of the fast expanding and enormously successful Premier Inn hotel chain, this 210 bed hotel overlooks the Wales Millennium Centre and is adjacent to the Ty Hywel National Assembly building.

The Challenge

This was a major development in a tight and congested central location which, in itself, presents design and logistical challenges.

We have worked in collaboration with Whitbread for many years. We were appointed by them as ‘policing’ consultants for this development, charged with ensuring that all design standards were in accordance with the high quality required by Whitbread.

In carrying out this role we worked in close and effective partnership with Cardiff based architects Holder Mathias.


The Outcome

Now fully open, the new hotel has been seen as further enhancing the vibrant Cardiff Bay destination and has provided over 70 new jobs. Cardiff Bay is a vital hub for both business and leisure activity and an important part of the city’s expansion and success.
