This is a nice B&B offering great value for money in a good location. The rooms are basic but clean and breakfast was continental in style but more than sufficient. There is free parking outside all day and it is a short and pleasant walk into the centre of Cardiff. Just across the road there is a row of shops... More

My husband and I found Acorn Lodge to be wonderful, our room was spacious and immaculately clean - everything about our experience was good. The hostess Beti was kind and accommodating even when we arrived well after 9:30 pm on a Friday night. Acorn is literally a stones throw away from the Millenium stadium so a great base to explore...

We booked late so we didnt expect anything too special, but we found Acorn Lodge particually comfortable, easy going and friendly. The continental breakfast in the morning was very filling and we would certainly stay again.

I wouldn't recommend stay here as Cardiff has many place to stay. Room was clean except carpet and found little dead spider on the bed.. Shower water was very poor pressure which took an ages to take a shower and wash hair. Breakfast was ok with lots of cerials , cheese, friuts but I would go to the other B&B... More

stayed here for the football international - very welcoming. The place is a brisk 30 minute walk from the train station - 25 mins from the centre of town. Room was on the top floor and was very clean - recently decorated. Excellent power shower and good bathroom. Breakfast was very good despite not being a 'cooked breakfast' - plenty... More

We stayed at the Acorn Lodge in early June 2006. It’s located about 2-3km from the centre of Cardiff. Generally speaking the place is a bit run down – our room was tidy but tired. A bit spartan as well. I can’t actually believe the previous comments as they seem to be talking about somewhere completely different to the place... More

I cannot say enough good things about the Acorn Lodge. I was amazed by the kindness I was shown, and I found the entire experience to be a delight. My hostess, Bet, treated me better than I ever would have imagined possible. She actually drove me to St. Fagan's one morning so I wouldn't have to figure out the buses,... More
