We have been here with two friends for Easter. We took a three bed room and it was spacious and clean. The service is good and the hotel is just a short bus ride from the city centre. We were really satisfied!

Stayed for 3 nights for a wedding in Cardiff. The guesthouse is in a great location with a free car park round the back, and only a 10-15min walk to the town centre. The rooms was nice and clean, and although on a busy road the room was quiet and we had a good nights sleep. You cant get much... More

We booked this at the last minute and expected very little - we were very pleased with the price, location and stay. It's a simple guest house, clean, tidy and large rooms. We stayed on the bottom floor and were worried of noise - no problem. Simple and nice decor, clean and tidy and nice decor. Little, clean and tidy... More

Stayed at the Avala, visiting our son at University. Good location, clean town house, reasonably priced. Offer good continental breakfast. Parking at rear, off the main road. No frills, but were quite happy there.

We needed a stay for a 2 night break to visit our son at University and for the price this guest house is well located and clean. There was a shower issue for us and other guests which the owners are aware of but is still a nuisance. Breakfast is simple and costs extra but don't ask for the croissants... More

Would absolutely stay again. Booked two 3 bedders, both rooms were big and spacious, clean and tidy. TV and other things were good, even managed to hook laptop up to the tv and stream a football match. Free wi-fi! Handy car park and friendly staff £5 taxi to town or a 15 minute walk

Stayed here for a weekend trip to Cardiff. Great location and had a car park which was definitely a bonus! Staff were very friendly and good selection of tea/coffee/hot chocolate on the tea tray. Rooms are a little small but thats what you would expect for a town house hotel. We were on the top floor so that was a... More

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel the 29th-31st August 2014. It was wonderful. Not far from the town center. It is a nice walk but there is a bus stop with regular buses that is right outside if you prefer. The room was very clean and very spacious with plenty of room to hang clothes and a good... More
