    The B&B is in a central location and is reasonably priced compared to other options in the area (although we still found it a little overpriced). The room had a musty smell and there was some mould in the bathroom, however the decor in both the bedroom and the bathroom was quite stylish and the bed was very comfortable. When... More

    Dear guests, The Dexby Townhouse is a family run place, intended, like many other B&B's, to be the home away from home - informal, casual, friendly and always aiming to provide the best possible service. This is not a chain hotel, where people wear suits/uniforms and where there is little or no communication during guests' stays. Your host (myself) is... More

    Our room (including the bathroom) was clean, spacious and had visibly undergone renovation. The bedroom windows provided very good protection against the noise from the street (although the rooms neighbors could be heard). There was no private parking but we were able to find a parking lot on the street. The castle could be walked within 20 minutes, so we... More

    Even though I arrived late I was personally welcomed, the room was very clean, quiet and comfortable, I slept really well and had a great breakfast with lots of choice. And I got perfect directions for where I needed to go the next day. A great straightforward and pleasant place to stay.

    Dexby is not much to look at from the outside, but once inside it has been decorated and furnished to a high standard for a B&B. The service was outstanding with very attentive and polite staff. The breakfast was of good quality and again service was excellent.

    Lovely clean and roomy b&b, friendly and welcoming staff. Lovely breakfast. The only fault is that the plug didn't fit the sink which would prove a problem when having a shave. Will definitely book to stay here again.

    This townhouse is located about 1.5 km from Cardiff central, and half the walk is through a pleasant riverside park. It's also close to the ferry station for the river boat to Cardiff Bay. Street parking is easily available. We stayed on the top floor, so it was very quiet (but there was road noise). Our room was bright, clean... More
