As other reviews have said the place is absolutely filthy, dust & a strong smell of smoke hits you as you enter the guest house, you have to pay in advance before you can look at the room the proprietor stands at the bottom of the stairs holding out her hand desperate to take your money, the breakfast is an...

Where do I start... The room was a awful, dust every where, I had to clean the coat hanger's before I used them and dust the headboard. The mirror was no where near the sockets, the bed linen was as old as the arc and had stains on them. The whole room needed a really good clean never mind painting.... More

We went to Cardiff for a daytrip on Easter Sunday, too many things to see so we decided to stay over night and try to find accomodation in really last minute... The lady was very helpful and had a warm welcome even if we arrived late evening. The guesthouse has a large backyard as parking area for cars. Our room... More

Me and my daughter stayed here for a night when I took my son back to Cardiff uni. When we entered the guest house the first thing that struck me was the smell of stale fag smoke, not pleasant at all. The 2 ladies who were there during our stay are lovely, very friendly and chatty. We had a room... More

Where to start??!! £80 per night to stay here is quite frankly one of the biggest rip offs I have EVER experienced in my life, and I live in London! For £10 more we could've stayed in a 4-5* Hotel in the centre of town and if we hadn't already given our card details before we checked in we would've... More

This guest house charged £110 per night for a cramped badly equipped double bedded room and breakfast. Where to start? There were old curiously coloured towels. No shampoo or body wash etc. No hairdryer. The breakfast was cooked fresh, but all the things available were of the cheapest value sort available, right down to the Asda value 3/4 empty jar... More

if you like tomatoes with your cooked breakfast this is not the place as they only do tinned plum tomatoes warmed up in the microwave! - never experienced this before. Only orange juice tea and instant coffee available at breakfast. Room was clean with nice towels but not well appointed.No soap in bathroom or shelf to put toothbrush. Minute sink.... More
