We stayed here for one night during a tour of Wales. The b&b really stands out from the rest of the houses in the street as the road and surrounding area is rather shabby. We found out later that this is one of the more deprived areas of Cardiff. Parking was not a problem and we could see our car... More

Booked blind from the net, what a win. the hosts were amazing... welcoming, free with information, and have a beautiful dog, Max. The house is cozy, quirky and decorated with style. Well positioned with bus stop outside and train station up the road! Free parking outside, yeh! Lovely little garden and lounge for your use. Not the Hilton by any... More

We arrived in Cardiff to gale force conditions and were welcomed by Paul at this great B and B. We stayed in the apartment across the street (on street parking) which was large, warm and had a good size en suite. Bus outside took us into town, which is close. Paul recommended a local restaurant which lived up to wraps.... More

We are struggling to understand the rave reviews for this B&B, which is – to be honest – quite shabby and in a crappy part of town. It is usually really nice to stay on the outskirts of a city and explore the suburbs while walking into town, but Grangetown is a dump – characterless and not very pleasant at... More

I have recently returned from the Ty Rosa and .... I absolutely love it! I booked the annex apartment for me and 10 friends, all 5 rooms were perfect and nicely decorated, although one is on the small side it is the coolest room in the apartment ( useful as it was 26 degrees outside ). The price we paid... More

Stayed here three nights with husband and teenage daughter. So grateful for the kindness of owners and staff when my daughter became quite ill with stomach virus and my husband ill with a nasty cold at beginning of our stay. Ended up not seeing as much of Cardiff as we hoped - but if you're on vacation and feeling terribly... More

Arrived to the warmest welcome and did feel like we were staying with beloved friends for a weekend. It was Easter weekend and the cute touch of Easter eggs on our pillows made us smile. The room was compact, we had a shared bathroom but who cares when you get rainbow dressing gowns!!! If you want a hotel that is... More

Stayed here on the basis of very good reviews but thought it was very poor value. Best thing was the lovely welcome from the owners, but the place is tatty, not boutique, and is on a busy road in a grotty part of Cardiff. The pavement outside was strewn with rubbish and broken glass. Not the owners fault but not... More

I really wanted to like this place. It has such great reviews, a great location, and great prices. And it started off well. The decor was charming, the room was comfortable, the wifi was fast and reliable, breakfast was delicious, Paul was friendly, and Max was adorable.

We are sorry you had a bad experience on the second day as we had got away from a night off. We hadn't had a night off since January. We will learn from your troubled experience and will in future close the B&B for future nights off as we do not like to see that guests have a mad stay... More
