Bathroom was clean and basic,quite small shower. Breakfast was comprehensive, staff asking if extra toast,tea,coffee etc were needed.

Booked 2 nights here, nice comfortable clean double room and Ensuite. Cooked breakfast was of good quality and very tasty. Friendly and polite staff and owner. Nice walk across Bute Park to centre of Cardiff. Parking at rear of B&B via Sophia Walk. Rooms at front of B&B quite as double glazing sufficient to keep main road noise out.

Stayed here due to a lack of availability of other city-centre hotels (which I normally use) due to football match at the weekend. However, this turned out to be anything other than second-best. Room - large, clean and well-presented. Breakfast - excellent. Location - a short walk into city centre and close to Sophia Gardens, National Museum, etc. Immediately adjacent... More

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.
