Stayed for two nights.Location was quite good (and easy to find), walking distance from the center of Cardiff (<10min) and with very often buses. Rooms were comfortable, very clean and quiet, we had no complaints whatsoever. Compared to average Cardiff accommodation, very good value for money.

Great location, comfortable nights sleep. My room was quite spacious with a small but adequate en suite. This place was perfect for my needs and would definitely stay there again. Friendly staff. Free car park was also an added bonus. Would definitely recommend.

It's near the bus stop so location wise it's okay. The rooms were big and beautiful. They had provided towels when we arrived. Unfortunately, the wi-fi did not reach the rooms so you had to stay at the lobby the whole time. Had a nice stay there.

This guest house is very dated and tired, but extremely clean. The rooms are basic, shower room is very small, but overall it is clean and does its job. The location is excellent, took us 20 mins to walk from town centre and bus stop was just outside, £1.70 into town. We paid £82.50 for a triple room and while... More

We stayed here for 3 days. Building is very nice, very clean rooms. Easy to find. Everything within walking distance. Good points - car park and every room is en-suite! One big let down - luck of customer service! I had to beg for milk for kids in the morning! Excuses I was given - 'I am on my own... More

We stayed here for a long weekend. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable modern and spotlessly clean. The car park at the back of the house is very useful. Situated on a busy road and a ten minute walk into the town centre. Well worth the money.

Cheap and cheerful friendly guest house, no frills just basic accommodation well situated for the city at a great price. Would recommend for a short stay. The staff are most helpful and friendly. It even has its own carpark included in the price!
