Very good roomrate en excellent breakfast. Host is very helpful. We dit have a good bed and a nice sleep. Very good place to go to Cardiff and a lot cheaper. Our room had a seperate bathroom, very clean, maybe a little bit old. Shower is electric and was warm.

I stayed at Barry's guesthouse for four weeks recently and found it charming, warm, amenable and everything you would expect for a very competitively priced place. Due to health issues I don't partake of breakfasts if I'm working but from what I saw they look perfect. My room was well stocked daily with beverages, clean and a lovely size. There... More

It's reasonably priced and the owners a nice guy but it needs a damn gold clean and an update .It's noisy as hell in some rooms next to the main road .More suitable for a single person looking for cheap place to stay .I'm nearly single again after booking this place .Oh dear

Barry was polite, the building was beautiful and the breakfast was good, but: The room was in desperate need of a deep clean, the dust was incredible. We paid extra for a double that was a twin with the beds pushed together. The noise from the traffic and the wafer-thin curtains made getting a decent sleep difficult. There were 4... More

Would recommend this traditional and old-fashioned (in a good way) guesthouse. Be prepared that you do have to order breakfast in advance, and arrange a late check in (>8pm) beforehand, but this is more than compensated for by the very characterful Victorian-type building and decor, particularly in the reception and spacious communal lounge area. The man and lady who run... More

I was greeted with "welcome to my Victorian home", and Barry the proprietor is striving to enhance that side of his guesthouse. He has a way to go as the previous owner obviously didn't have the same desire, small details like having Georgian handles when Victorian are the same price are those little things that Barry will iron out given...

Character house in excellent location for town and railway station. Great room, food and host. Plenty of on street parking spaces. It's like staying at a small friendly hotel. We had a great stay. Cheers Barry

Barry the owner was very helpful. Nothing seemed too much trouble for him. Room was clean and cosy, great value for money, do not know why people complain on this. I loved the Knoll and me and my partner would visit again. Good breakfast aswell! 👍🏻👍🏻

A very tired but attractive Victorian property. Our room was on the top floor, cramped, uncomfortable, and very noisy traffic. The bathroom was difficult to get in and the macerator would wake the whole hotel. Stained carpets and dusty ledges everywhere, despite the pleasantness of the owner, we will not be returning
