Hoping for some advice from you all.

I'm looking at travelling by car for the Leicester game 25th october with a 7.45 kick off.
The premier inn is available for the 2 nights friday & saturday, but is it to far out of the way for a friday night on the town, and also for some sight seeing on the  saturday during the day.......  If i was to stay in town, is there shuttle bus's trains etc to the ground ? Is it best to stay in swansea and again get a bus or train to the ground ?
Is it possible to go to the swansea v leicester city game which kicks of at 5.30pm and the taxi it straight to the scarlets v leicester tigers game ? without missing any game time ?

Any suggestions / thoughts/ advice will be greatly received

quite a few answers neaded for this one dunks , if you stayed in swansea there is alot more nighlife , check out wine st, if you just went to the scarlets tigers game you could get the bus or train to llanelli , give yourself plenty of time have a few beers , happy days . 
if you wanted to go to the football , you would have to get a ticket at leicester , you would have no chance this end because every game is a full house . because its a sell out , traffic outside the liberty is chaos after the game , they close a few of the roads , it would be very tight to get a taxi to scarlets v tigers game for 7.45pm .
i am a scarlets fan living in swansea , stick i take is water of a ducks back . 
as all the coaches left stradey , bound for nottingham , a sign on the m4 at hendy said , please can the last person close the door behind them , memories

Premier Inns are both close enough for what you want. East is about 500m walk from the ground. West is about a fiver in a cab, if you get there well ahead of KO time.

Doubt that you'd manage the footie final whistle and the KO at Scarlets unless you had a helicopter.

Hope that helps.

hi dunks , if you wanted to make it easy for yourself stay in llanelli, you could easy get a taxi to and from the game , and llanelli is a rugby mad town . if you wanted have a bit of night life on the friday nice meal in a restaurant  then swansea would be your best bet , sightseeing is all the same coast line is amazing around the area .

Remember to visit the Red Room in Llanelli, pre and/or post match.
Depends what you're after food wise and what your budget is, you could find Sospan/Sosban to your liking. It's a short walk from Prem Inn West and has been Welsh Restaurant of the Year. Stephen Jones and Dwayne Peel are part of the ownership team.

hi dunks,if you want to watch the rugby then defo stay in Llanelli.f##k Swansea,it's a city full of dossers.llanelli itself has some nice pubs and restaurants in and around the place.if you actually stayed at the travel lodge in town,there's a lovely coastal area you can walk to and see the sites Llanelli has to offer.

If you stay at the Travelodge in Llanelli Town Center there are normally shuttle buses for a couple of quid which go to Parc Y Scarlets on match days from near the Travelodge. The bus also returns to town after the match every hour for 3 hours after the match so if you wanted to stay in the Barn after the game you could

I think the Travelodge is your best bet. The bus to/from Parc y Scarlets is pretty much outside the front door and the Scarlets Red Room is a one minute stagger away.
