Lovely, welcoming b&b the room we stayed in looked nothing like the photos on here BUT it was very clean and tidy. Beds were very very comfy ...for breakfast we had a full English ..which was Beautiful and a good size couldn't eat it all .. Great location too .. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends .

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Anchorage Guest house. Quiet location, bedrooms spotless, breakfast suburb, with sweeping views of the Millennium Stadium and river Taff. Not a better location in Cardiff with two friendly and accommodating hosts (Jayne & Diane). Highly recommended.

I don't understand the negative comments from the previous reviewer, they must have stayed in a different hotel than the one I stayed in!!!! I spent a weekend there and the location is excellent, only a stones throw away from Cardiff City centre. The owners are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Comfortable room and excellent breakfast. Overall... More

The Management pictures for the Anchorage Hotel on the Fitzhamon Embankment Cardiff above must be for a totally different hotel. They do not resemble the shabby, bare, old fashioned accommodation I stayed in. I am furious that I booked this hotel based on these photos and reviews. The only true photo is the tourist one with the Anchorage Guest House... More

Regular visitor to this establishment. Family run business, Jane and Dianne are a dream. Any room more than acceptable. Excellent breakfast included in the price. Very good value for money. Just a short walk from all Cardiff's attraction especially for sports lovers, shoppers and night life. Home from home.

I have been coming to the Anchorage Guest House for years for the bi-annual Scotland Wales rugby game & cannot praise it enough. The owner Jane is a gem & we are always made to feel like family as soon as we arrive. You could throw a stone over the river Taff & hit the Millenium Stadium, you are that... More

JUST BEWARE THOUGH....the bed is so comfortable you will definately oversleep and miss any engagements you have (as I did with my friends wedding party!!) A perfect nights'... More

I have stayed at this guest house many times when watching Rugby. Jane is an absolutely brilliant hostess and the breakfast is fantastic. The venue could not be better suited for Cardiff as it's right on the river bank and yu wake up to a view of the magnficent millenium stadium. Best value, not just in Cardiff, but anywhere!

I enjoyed a one-night stay here last month. Location-wise, it's great for the bus/train station and a few minutes walk into the city centre. I stayed on the top floor in a single room (room 5 I think). Comfortable, clean and quiet. The breakfast was great with a good choice and everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful too....

Been coming to Cardiff since 1989 every second year, this is the best in value and service sofar. Close to the railway station and bus to airport, and yet very peaceful. Got a room to the garden. Double bedroom, with ensuite bathroom, all for 35 £/night. Only cash accepted, wasn't a problem for us. Flexible and friendly personnel. Full breakfast,... More
