I was very surprised to read the other reviews under the 'terrible' section. Had a great time, room was clean and shower was powerful. Very antique room. Breakfast was nice, if your not fussy fruit, cereal and toast was more than enough. About a 15 minute walk into town which caused no problems.

I was looking for somewhere in Cardiff near to the main train station (but not right on the door step) and Dexby looked like it would fit the bill. At a very reasonable price of £140 for 4nights including a continental breakfast I decided to give it a go. The room I had (Single Room) was a good size, not... More

Stayed at Dexby beginning of July. Lovely room, clean, nicely furnished, big shower and huge bath towel. Yes, it's a little walk to town, but there was space to park outside on the road for free. The breakfast was buffet-style but you could choose from the menu for a cooked breakfast too. Suzanna was very helpful. Would definitely stay here... More

I spent two nights here at the end of June; lovely place, superb location, great staff and nothing was any trouble. I had a double room on the ground floor at the front of the house, and the front door is not the easiest to close quietly which was frustrating. My room was huge with bath and shower en suite...

I have just spent three nights at one of the nicest places I have ever stayed in. The Dexby town house is a most inviting. The welcome is warm, the rooms finished to a high standard, and, they are very clean. The bathroom was big enough to hold another bed!!! The breakfast room was inviting and nothing was too much...

We stayed one night, but we will be back to sample the delights of this beautiful boutique hotel again. We were greeted by Susannah who was very charming, very helpful and pleasant. She showed us to our room, a lovely large room to the front of the hotel. It was very clean and spacious and also very warm. The bathroom... More

This B&B exceeded my expecatations. The staff were very helpful and welcoming and the room was spacious with en-suite and nicely furnished with plenty of storage and very comfy bed. Breakfast was great. They do an option of traditional Welsh breakfast but I went for the continental included within the room price and was not disappointed with plenty of fresh... More

We stayed at Dexbys for 2 nights for a family wedding. First impressions were excellent; a friendly welcome from the manager and very large and well decorated rooms. The bathroom was large and spotless. The room likewise was very large with two comfortable armchairs and a table where we could drink our complimentary tea. Breakfast was excellent and there was...

On first glance our room was really lovely though on closer inspection such as grease marks on the walls and a toilet my wife had to clean before use the Dexby was really nice. Delicious breakfast made up for this and so did the knowledgeable concierge. The guesthouse really needs a bit of TLC to bring it back to purpose.
