This place has character and makes the most of what it has which is a lovely location with close access to Bute park (perfect shortcut) and the city centre. Much bigger B&B... More

My husband and I had a bed consisting of 2 'sort of blocks' - we both couldn't sleep because of a hidden dip. But the kids were fine, they slept well. Parking... More

Great little privately owned hotel just round the corner from the SWALEC stadium. Staff were very friendly, almost a home from home atmosphere. We were in the coach house across the car park from the main building, it was very quiet if a little basic, however, everything you'd need was there (bit odd to have the shower in the room... More

This hotel is easily found and is very secure. The location is fantastic being right next to the park and the castle as well as the centre itself. We stayed for two nights and it was the hotel that made the trip. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was very delicious. Our room was lovely and the... More
