The apartments are in a very convenient location. Right next door to the Goodsheds, where there are a few shops a bar and a variety of different food options. There is also an Asda close by and a couple of bars/ coffee shops and the odd pub.
Also it is only a short walk to Barry Island and Whitmore bay, we had a small child with us who managed there and back no problem. Another bay worth visiting is Jackson’s Bay which is just round the corner from Whitmore Bay. Both bays were very clean which was impressive as it was very busy!

The apartment was very tastefully decorated, especially the bathrooms and kitchen and were fully equipped with pretty much all you would need. However there were just a few things we thought would make for a more enjoyable stay such as a booklet with details of the area and wi-fi codes. There were no numbers on the internal doors or the key boxes( only a problem if there is more than one apartment in your block).
Also there was a lack of basic toiletries, only one bathroom had hand soap and there was no shampoo or shower gel ( I’m sure these are advertised in the listing but I may be wrong).
There were also a couple of items left behind on the side, I’m assuming the cleaner forgot to put them in the bin, an empty vodka bottle, some burnt out room candles, a very nearly empty shower gel bottle and we did discover someone else’s shorts in the washing machine. I must stress though the apartment was very clean aside from the random assortment of objects and we found it comical more than anything, it would not put us off staying here again.

Really enjoyed the stay very easy check in very comfortable, had everything we needed in a great location the price was very reasonable and parking at an extra cost but it was worth it . Loved the surrounding sound speakers and sound proofing as we didn't hear anything from bar downstairs. I will definitely return

I stay at the Goodsheds in Barry for work regularly and it's a perfect place to stay for value for money, quality of accommodation and ease of parking. It is worth paying a little extra for use of the car park, as the car is safely kept in a secure parking lot with an electronic gate and you know you will have a parking space as you arrive as it is already designated. The accommodation is clean, tidy and spacious and I only have to walk a few minutes to Asda, to buy food, which I can cook in the apartment. I have also stayed at the Goodsheds away from work with the kids, and it was a great base to travel and explore, and there was plenty of room for all of us. I especially like the little welcome pack with the dishwasher tablets and bin bags etc. It all just makes life so much easier. I thoroughly recommend the accommodation for both business and pleasure.

At first glance the apartments seem to be in a good location and well appointed, but the longer we stayed there (4 nights), the more issues we found.

Firstly, we arrived late Monday afternoon and got into the apartment no problem. We went to the nearby Asda to grab some pizzas for tea after travelling a good 5 hours to get to Barry, plus for the local amenity. We ran into our first issue when we discovered the welcome pack which explains the symbols on the oven were not the same as the actual symbols on the oven (and nor were they what we were used to at home!) The coffee machine was also full of used pods and there were ring marks on the oven hob. We eventually figured out the fan oven but assume the ovens have no normal top and bottom heat setting? Still confused here.
We then went to our bathroom where the small towel rack was loose on the wall and the toilet brush still had someone's used toilet paper on it!!
This week has been incredibly hot and it was frustrating there were no fans in the rooms and one window blind was stuck in the corridor so we couldn't open that window.
After sleeping Monday night, we discovered one of the mattresses springs had completely gone leaving a divet in the mattress that was uncomfortable and also led to an incredibly noisy nights sleep. We called to get this replaced but was told they couldn't readily get a new mattress and their maintenance only works Thursdays, which is not helpful when we left Friday Morning. We were then told a mattress had been ordered but wouldn't be available immediately. We came back Tuesday afternoon after a day out and called for an update where we were told it had been replaced by the manager (it had not and a mattress topper had appeared on the wrong bed.) The lady on the phone repeatedly kept calling it an issue with a hard bed and did not listen, instead cutting me off every time I tried to explain so we did not sleep well in that bed the whole week.
The light bulbs in the rooms (next to the bed) are also far too bright to read by and not conducive to a relaxing night's sleep.
The second bedroom only had a tiny wardrobe in which to put clothes and no space for personal toiletries in the shower.
These may have been well appointed at one point but now they seem to be less than well cared for and some of the finer details of a good stay seem to be missed. A little attention to detail wouldn't go amiss.

When we got to the apartment we had not received the room number or the code to get the key, so called the help line and they sorted it out straight away no hassle at all. We loved the stay it was super clean, great location for Cardiff by bus saves trying to park. We walked to the beach which was really nice. Ho and you can park in a separate car park which was nice for an extra £50.
