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

A very comfortable room in the heart of Cardiff. Close to the Castle and the stadium. A short drive to all major attractions with restaurants and the New Theatre within a short walk. Irena serves a generous full breakfast. Well worth booking.

This delightful B&B was as expected on the Riverside opposite the Millennium Stadium and Cardiff Arms Park. We had a warm welcome from Mrs Irena Hinc who was friendly and efficient. Our room was a large double with an enormous bathroom - all spotlessly clean. 2 chairs - one a comfortable armchair, coffee and tea making facilities and a flat... More

I have never stayed at this establishment but I would like to let you know about the proprietors underhand tactics. I rang the Riverside B&B to book a one night stay on the 30 of November whilst watching the rugby at the Millennium Stadium. I was informed by the owner that the room cost £65.00 per night but would only... More

Sadly we only had one night in Cardiff. We felt like we were part of the family as soon as we walked in thanks to these wonderful hosts! The location is perfect! walking to Cardiff Castle and to the river bus to Cardiff Bay. Comfortable rooms, lovely breakfast and more. Thank you so much.
