Was attending a conference at the uni and enjoyed the walk across the park every morning - nice location. Breakfast was good, and everything went smoothly with booking and check-in. Decor pleasantly eccentric!

My husband, son and I recently stayed at the Town House while the Ashes cricket was on at Swalec Stadium. We were very impressed by the quality of the accommodation and the beautiful breakfast served in the dining room. I would highly recommend this establishment.

I stayed here for a few days as I wanted to be near Bute Park where I was doing a 10k run. I was greeted by Charles, who recommended a couple of places to eat nearby, and told me how to walk into the centre of town through the park. My room was small but adequate, vegetarian breakfasts were lovely,... More

Stayed here the first weekend of May 2015 for my partners birthday. It's a lovely town house, serves a good breakfast in the morning and they also cater for vegetarians. Only about 10 minute walk from the millennium stadium and city centre. Free parking and wifi as well! The staff are all lovely as well, felt very welcome.

We stayed 2 nights in the B&B to visit our daughter at Cardiff Met's Llandaff campus. It is ideally located between town centre, 20min walk or 5 min bus (bus stop in front of B&B), and Llandaff. Welcome was warm and friendly. Proprietors were away but staff was always kindly and helpful. Our room, at the back of the house,... More

The hotel is situated in the middle of a row of terraced houses with a small car park accessed by a... More

A nice clean well maintained guest house. Was made to feel well the room was nice, clean and tidy and being on the top floor was very quirky with its sloping ceilings and doors. Situated in a convenient location and close to a variety of pubs and bar and town centre.
