We stay for 2 nights in SACO apartments. The located is excellent near to the city centre and minutes away from the park and castle. The apartment was lovely and spacious as well as being well equip with kitchen utensils, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The manager Liz was also very nice and helpful.

Me and my friends stayed here last weekend and we had a brilliant time. The apartment was spacious, beautifully designed and laid out and most of all we had everything we could have asked for (i.e parking space, towels, bedding, adequate pillows and even milk) The apartment was secure and conveniently located. The only negative I would have is the... More

We stayed two nights in a one bedroom apartment in this beautifully converted period house, although we were in the coach house in what would have been the garden, but now houses the car park. The rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings making it feel quite spacious. Fittings are good and everything you need to get started is provided... More

What a fantastic and enjoyable stay we had. On arrival we had a slight challenge with regards to getting in - (not the best with technology) rang the Emergency number - Liz answered in a few rings - had a Homer Simpson moment (DoH) and got in. The standard of the accommodation was beyond our expectation. Beds: very, very comfortable... More

These apartments had everything we needed for our stay in cardiff, from towels to sachets of tea and even milk in the fridge! The place was very clean, quiet and safe; and literally ten minutes walk from the centre of Cardiff. I can't recommend this place enough, and will definately be back.

Found the apartment to be very spacious and well appointed. Easy walk to Cardiff Castle and main attractions. Great parking arrangements and were delighted to be able to leave the car whilst visiting the city next day. Would highly recommend if, like us, you want somewhere quiet to retire to at the end of the day.

Due to our positive experience last stay, once again my Mother and myself booked into SACO Cardiff and we weren't disappointed. Although the apartment we had originally requested wasn't available, the one we were given was even better. It had a lovely view out the back to Sofia Gardens and the main bedroom was incredibly roomy with a massive bathroom.... More

The apartment exceeded our expectations from the location to the facilities but failed miserably in delivering the most important aspect of staying away from home which is a good night's sleep. The mattress was uncomfortable and you could feel the springs poking through which led to little sleep and awful backache which did not help when attending a two day... More

Very handy for Cardiff, on a lovely road in. Nice to have our own space to relax in after being out and about all day. Couple of doors down from the cricketers pub.....fab
