Travelled from Doncaster with the dogs to see the Monte Dons at the Gwaelod-y Garth Inn cider and sausage festival. What a lovely night. We stopped the night in the hotel. A very busy night and the most fantastic helpful pleasant staff ive come across in a very long time. Even after working a very long day, the ladies couldnt... More

We spent two nights here in a separate building up the lane from the Inn. Our accommodation had two bedrooms and a full kitchen with coffee, tea and milk and a bathroom with shower. The towels were the largest and most absorbent ever! We found the rooms to be rather cold, partly because we were jet-lagged and also because we... More

My wife managed to find this beautiful inn tucked at a quiet corner at the outskirts of Cardiff. I found the roads leading to the inn narrow and confusing, especially driving a French rental Peugeot with lousy GPS. We were the only Asians there and I think my wife found it awkward that everyone at the pub stared at her... More

We booked two nights at the Gwaelod y Garth Inn and ended up with a five night stay! The rooms are quaint, comfortable and clean, but our favorite feature was the friendliness expressed to us by owners, Rich and Barbara - and their wonderful staff. They all made an effort to pull up a chair and visit with us each... More

Great Beer , Great Food and a great atmosphere always with bright well appointed dog friendly rooms . Rich and Babs are excellent hosts. Violet Cottage Brewery which is onsite and run by Rich to complement a full bar of real ales always . Good views . Have returned many times and found everything always consistently very good .

Has to be one of the very very best places in South Wales for Sunday lunch. An extensive first class menu with your traditional choice of roasts plus numerous fish dishes and a specials board. The goats cheese and black pudding starter is to die for and a choice of sixteen desserts is quite frankly superb. Please don't book though... More

I've been here many times the food is usually lovely. Small portions scallops. The staff are becoming increasingly arrogant. Unfortunately because if this I will not return. The price is enough. The staff do not live up to the foot/chef

As soon as I stepped through the door, soaked and tired from a long day I was given a very warm welcome, my very heavy suitcase was carried for me to my beautiful, huge bedroom. After settling in I made my way to the restaurant which I expected to be dead on a Monday night - I was wrong, full... More
