Looking for a very last minute accomodation in Cardiff and I got to this lovely place. Clean and quite with en suite and cooked breakfast for a very reasonable place. Unfortunately I had the front bedroom which was a bit chilly overnight but there were plenty of blankets in the wardrobe!

The hotel was very helpful and accommodating, They followed up my booking promptly so I was sure that the booking had been received. I was able to arrange a late arrival although the hotel's normal check... More

Stayed in a twin room on the first floor. Great to have parking on site. Lovely power shower and great breakfast. Charles the owner was very helpful and happy to advise where to go. Handy location, a walkable distance into town or a shoe bus ride with bus stop just opposite the b&b.

This place is a convenient walking distance to town, and well-appointed--in a lovely neighborhood of Victorian townhouses. On a main street and across the street from a pub that is party central late into the night, but if you close your windows it's quite soundproof, especially with the fan going in the summer. This is a tall place, so be... More

I booked the single en suite in the eaves, and the website does warn that it has low ceilings. It certainly wouldn't do for anyone taller, but for me it was fine - I only banged my head once in the bathroom, though I had to be careful. The bed was comfy and a (noisy) electric fan was provided as... More

I recently stayed in the town house for one night with my family and was very impressed. The hotel itself is charming retaining much of its character and the reception rooms are lovely and homely.

Me and my two friends had a lovely visit for an overnight stay, very accommodating to my friends dietary needs, clean and provided everything needed. Very close to city centre and parking and Wi-Fi such a bonus. Would definitely book again, thank you x
