It was a beautiful Victorian House, kept it's charm. Right by the River and in view of the Millenium Stadium. 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

Totally unreliable. Took the booking for three rooms knowing how important it was to us to find somewhere to stay on a specific very important date. 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! (date not yet travelled - had... More

We stayed here for two nights in all three twin rooms. Irena was a lovely hoast. Very warm welcome when we arrived a few hours earlier than check in time. All rooms were spacious, clean and everything you needed included. The cooked breakfast was excellent. All in all a very nice place and ideal location for Cardiff City centre. Would... More

This family-run backpackers is another good place I stayed for a while. Rooms are cosy and it has the advantage of having private rooms for families or for those who wish to be on their own. Very clean. Modern fitted kitchen. Once a week, dinner is offered to residents. Breakfast is a delight because of the available wide choice offered... More

I chose this B&B for the location and the good reviews and wasn't disappointed. We came to watch the rugby on the 23rd and the 24th May. The owners were smashing, lovely room at the top of the house with shared bathroom. Nice comfortable feel to the house and a lot bigger than you think from outside. The breakfast was... More
