We stayed at the Town House guest house for 3 nights in mid May. We were met by our host Charles and were made to feel very welcome, On being shown to our room we found it to be spotlessly clean as was the bathroom. Although our room overlooked Cathedral Road,one of the main roads into Cardiff city centre, there... More

I couldn't have asked for more. Have been staying here for the past month on and off doing academic work at the University. Lovely quiet room, excellent breakfasts and perfect, central location. My thanks to hosts Paula and Charles for looking after me so well and to Sue, Gemma and Stacey too. Will definitely book again on next visit to... More

Charles was a great host! The room was neat and tidy and the breakfast was impeccable! It's not too far from the town at all and is well connected by a bus stand just two houses away in case you need to use it. The very large and green Bute Park is just behind this road and is a great... More

Stayed two nights here, no complaints! Our flight into London was four hours late, and they waited up for us with no complaints, as we arrived by train into Cardiff hours after they wanted us there. All it took was a call to inform them. The atmosphere of the house is very comfortable. The breakfast is awesome, pretty much whatever... More

If you need a friendly and helpful welcome, a comfortable bed for the night and a quality breakfast - all for a very reasonable price - this is the place to go. I've stayed on numerous occasions on work trips to Cardiff and can't fault it.

This area is very convenient for the centre of Cardiff, just a short walk through Sofia Gardens. The room was a good size, a double, with all of the facilities you could need - tea and coffee, tv with freeview, a hairdryer and a good shower. The room was clean and tidy but if you want super chic and modern... More

Loved this place. It has a very traditional charm, large victorian house with its characteristic features of that period. Very good location. The city centre and its attractions are within a few minutes walking distance through Bute Park, which is well worth taking a bit of time to walk through. The owner and staff are welcoming and accommodating. Will definitely... More

We used this enjoyable B&B when taking my Daughter back to university in Cardiff and then on to her placement near Swansea. Used the wifi which was fine. Breakfast was good. Good location and easily walkable into the centre of Cardiff.

I asked for a double room to have a bit more space. The breakfast was good with freshly cooked standard english fare, and sitting round a large table enabled people to share ideas and experiences and was sociable. Crisp white cotton sheets and well worn blankets in place of a duvet, which might suit some people. Immaculate bathroom with a... More

With a gig to see in Cardiff this hotel location fits the bill for an overnight stay. The car can be left here and there's only a short walk into town. However there's a bus stop nearby should you not be able to walk or not want to! The rooms are not overly big but just fine for a few... More
