This is an average bed and breakfast at best which is showing its wear. I am not sure how anyone can call this a deluxe boutique hotel or a pretty retreat as some recent reviewers have described Dexby Town House. It is utilitarian and definitely needs some tlc as noted in several of the recent reviews on Trip Advisor. The... More

Dear Guests, We remember you and your friends well. We remember serving you breakfast in an empty breakfast room, while waiting for other guests to come down, while you happily chatted away with Mr. Church, the owner. When he asked you if you were enjoying your stay, you replied - everything was wonderful and you were having a great time!... More

I stayed for 12 nights while visiting family in Llandaff. I chose the Dexby because it was reasonably priced and located a short cab ride from downtown, and walking distance from my family's flat. The room was spacious, the bed was extremely comfortable, and that staff, which consisted primarily of Susana, was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. My... More

Amongst the hustle and bustle of Cardiff City where hotels are easy to come by, a little gem of a hotel was discovered just a stone's throw away from hectic reality. Take yourself out of the mayhem and unwind in this sublime boutique hotel. Welcoming hospitality and rooms of decadence awaits. Who doesn't want a sunken bath under the stars,... More

Situated within walking distance of Cardiff city centre, this guest house is perfectly placed for an overnight stay. It has ample free parking on the road outside so you can leave your car and relax. My room at the top of the house on first glance looked very pretty, closer inspection relieved some areas in need of some tlc. The... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a very spacious double room with ensuite bathroom. The room was stylish and comfortable with plenty of storage space. The manager was very friendly and helpful. A continental style breakfast was included in the room rate or you can pay extra for cooked items. There are plenty of nice pubs and restaurants within... More

This was my seventh visit to Dexby which is usually outstanding. Visited in February and stayed in room 7. During this visit I reported a leak in the roof above the bay windows causing water to drip onto the upholstered chair and carpet. Expecting this to be rectified I had no qualms regarding my most recent booking in July. Upon... More

To whom it may concern, Further to your recent review we are very disappointed in your response as i spoke with the college in question on the date you stayed at our guest house and we were already aware of this situation as another guest had flooded their bathroom in room 9 one week before your stay causing this problem....

We had a lovely warm reception upon arrival and were shown to our downstairs room which was beautiful. Susanna showed us around and gave us local information. As we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary we wanted to spend the night somewhere special and we certainly found it. Breakfast was freshly made to order and was delicious! We will most...

Most enjoyed our stay even tho it was a little busy with the cricket being on. Staff found us a parking space by standing in road while we parked, which was incredibly kind of them. Room was huge and decor in keeping with the age of the house. Had enough to eat for breakfast which set us up for the... More

This B&B was a pleasant experience for our stay in Cardiff. The rooms were beautifully appointed and spacious. Mine had a lovely sitting area in a large bay window at the front of the house. The breakfast was wonderful with many hot choices(extra $, but very reasonable) in addition to the continental breakfast included with the room. The young woman... More
