I stayed here on March this year - just for one night but had a lovely experience. There is a very friendly atmosphere and everywhere is spotlessly clean. Decoration nice and well maintained throughout. There was an excellent choice for breakfast and this was included in an already competitive price. Location ideal for the City Centre. Good value great stay... More

Needed a quiet room close to the University and handy for the city. Now Cardiff is not a big place and it doesn't take long to get anywhere but this guest house on a very nice street is a short walk through Sofia Gardens to the University and an easy walk to both the City Center and the Millennium Stadium....

I have stayed here a number of times over the past 6 months when I had an early start in Cardiff the next day. I always stayed in the single bedroom with private bathroom. The room and bathroom are clean, comfortable and have everything you need. Breakfast is cereals, toast etc. The owners are friendly and happy to help. It's... More

But not in this case. If you prefer to spend your money on giving back to a local independent business owner than one of the large international hotel chains you can't do better than stay here. I travel to Cardiff frequently on business, I have found myself a new home here. Highly commended and definitely recommended

Cardiff is lovely, and I cannot wait to come back. But I won't be coming back to The Avene Guest House again. Had no interaction with the owners, just the cleaners. The room was clean but small. The noise from the rude / guest neighbours was intolerable and made for a very unpleasant night for which 'again' the cleaner apologised... More

Stayed here for four nights in a single room. The room itself was on the small side and wasn't en-euite, however the bathroom was conveniently located and perfectly adequate (if also a little small). The room was very clean and had everything you would expect. The Owners were friendly and very helpful and guests were well looked after during breakfast.... More

We stayed here for only one night but it was just what we needed. We stayed in the king size room on the ground floor, which if you're looking to lie in in the morning then you can hear every footstep but it was a lovely room. The bed is amazingly comfortable and the bathroom is lovely, not very spacious... More

We had a great time at the Avenue Guest House. About 20 min walk to city center, nice neighborhood. Cozy guesthouse, we got to eat breakfast in their kitchen. Their fresh fruit salad was so good! We shared a bathroom, and the room was small, but the bed was comfy and we got what we paid for.

Stayed for 2 nights in this handy B&B in Cardiff. Warm welcome from Paul and although Collette was "at home" we did not meet her and I thought this rather odd as she spoke through the door to Paul but made no effort to meet and greet us. We had a double room, no 2, was adequate for our needs.... More
