Two minutes from South Wales University, beautifully clean, comfortable room with en-suite. On arrival, John made us feel completely at home and extremely welcome. Breakfast, well cooked and hot, Denise, couldn't have been any more attentive, ensuring we had all we wanted. Thank you - will definitely stay again. Mike & Gwen

I stayed here for two nights and enjoyed my stay, I was in a single room which had plenty of space and the bathroom was a good size. Bed was comfy and with access to wi-fi the place is good value for money and I would stay again. The owners were nice and very accommodating and made it seem like... More

This guest house is just outside Pontypridd with lovely views over the valley. Pontypridd is not a holiday resort and therefore attracts many different people for different reasons. I was there to research my ancestors but many were there for the University which has a campas in walking distance. The cleanliness is evident immediately and the standard of my ensuite... More

Pulizia immaculata! Cordiali. Bella panorama. Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo. Squeeky clean! Very hospitable. Beautiful view. Good Quality and price. Not a five star hotel, but a very quaint bed n breakfast.

I have yet to stay at a guesthouse rivalling such superb value for money. The owners are meticulous about the standard of accommodation they offer at a very reasonable (too reasonable rate). I know for a fact that the owners are very fussy about bedding and their breakfasts having spoken to them about the painstaking hours spent laundering and ensuring... More

I booked in 2 single rooms for myself and my brother for wednesday 24th April 2014. We informed the owners when we'd be arriving, had to change times but they acknowledged the change. The owner John wasn't very helpful on the phone but it was last minute so we went ahead with the booking. After a very long and tiring... More

Central House Guest House is a large guest house in Pontypridd. John and Denise are lovely people, incredibly welcoming (eg they defrosted my car while I had breakfast one wintry morning). The rooms are comfortable, though I did find it a bit unusual that there was no tv or tea/coffee in the rooms; I didn't use the tv lounge, but... More

This is a very friendly establishment, John and Denise are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. It is very reasonably priced, which is why no doubt it was full up with tradesmen during the middle of the week. The welsh breakfast is freshly cooked and there is plenty of cereal, toast etc. to keep the most hungry traveller... More

I stayed here for one night whilst visiting the University of South Wales. Even when I rang to book the hospitality and kindness was evident - I enquired about taxis and was told not to worry about it, that I should ring from the station and someone would collect me. And that is what happened. I was also taken to... More

I have spent the last 2 years periodically travelling back and forth to Ponty and each time have stayed with Denise & John at the Central Guest House. It has become home from home with the owners now like family. Better hosts there is not. John took me on a Ponty sight seeing tour & Denise joined me and a... More
