Rugby star kicks things off at the ZIP opening in Cardiff

This week in Cardiff, Welsh rugby star Gavin Henson helped us launch our first ever ZIP by Premier Inn hotel.

 

Gavin kick-started the day with our newly-appointed ZIP team members, getting them involved with some fun rugby drills and top sporting tips ahead of welcoming our first ever ZIP guests. 

 

Located in Roath, just a short drive away from Cardiff city centre, this marks the first – but not the last – of our new concept hotels to open. ZIP by Premier Inn is all about small rooms at small prices and doing all the basics brilliantly. From our comfy, clever Hypnos® beds that can be configured as two singles or a double, to the en suite power shower, Wi-Fi and 24-inch smart TV, you can look forward to a simple, no-frills stay from as little as £19 a night at ZIP.  

 

Our rooms have been cleverly designed to fit everything you need into just 8.5 sqm. After a great night’s sleep, you can grab yourself a tasty breakfast for £3.95 downstairs, where you’ll also find plenty of space to work, a bar with a big-screen TV, and table football – if you fancy a game.

Gavin Henson says: “It was great fun to launch the world’s first ZIP by Premier Inn here in Cardiff.  I’m sure that the rugby fans who are flocking to the city to watch the big match later in March will love the fact that they have somewhere very cool to stay without breaking the bank. The ZIP team showed me that they’ve got all of the skills needed to give a very warm Welsh welcome to their guests and I wish them every success.” 

 

As an added bonus, every guest who stays at ZIP by Premier Inn on the night before the Wales v Ireland match this March will receive an exclusive ZIP rugby ball to mark the occasion.

 

ZIP by Premier Inn has been designed by Priestman Goode, a leading design studio known for their expertise in maximising small spaces. We’d like to say a huge thank you to our amazing Premier Inn teams for all their hard work in making ZIP come to life!
