This is a comfortable, well run b and b. Our en-suite double had plenty of storage and a spacious bathroom. Breakfast was good, and free on-street parking a real bonus this close to the city centre. The Riverside is just across the river from the millennium stadium, the castle, city centre shops and restaurants are an easy 5 - 10... More

Host were charming and friendly, and full English breakfast was delicious.In an atmospheric dining room. Room was at top of house, but was no problem, and all needs in room. It is very close to town centre, about 5-6 mins,... More

We arrived early but this was not a problem and we were given a parking permit for the car. Our double room was spotlessly clean and the bed so comfortable. I am not a good sleeper but here I slept like a baby, so peaceful and so cosy. Breakfast was good and we had a lovely chat with Irena. Thank... More

My partner and I recently stayed at the Riverside on our brief visit to Cardiff. Lovely place, great location with easy walk over to the shopping area. Hostess was very kind and the breakfast was great. We would certainly recommend this place to others.

Location, location, location. Ten minute walk from the train station, situated along the Taft River, two minute walk to the castle and Bute Park which is a 130 acre park which was once the grounds of the castle. Five minute walk to the main shopping district - old, historic streets, shops, pubs. The B&B itself was spotless, beds comfortable. We... More

Initially difficult to find (the GPS took us to the right street but not the right number and the sign out front is hard to see), this was a great stay, right in the heart of Cardiff. A large, comfortable, tastefully-decorated room with a massive bathroom (but small shower cubicle!?), our hosts were very helpful moving us onto our room... More

Agreed the booking, cashed the deposit and then CANCELLED THE BOOKING three months later!! Absolutely disgusted. Deposit returned but harm already done - Cardiff showing fully booked now!
