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

Had one night here, Had previously been aroun 4 years ago and the first time was much better. The room was okay but a little tired. The towels provided were not particularly big and seemed ready for replacing. We were pleasantly greeted on arrival however. Wifi worked well. This is not a place for anyone with mobility problems as the...

We booked this B&B because it had secure parking, it was a reasonable price & was close to the city.

Breakfast tasted as...

Came across this place whilst on business needed a place to stay for one night. Room was very clean and reasonable prices. Breakfast was good. Pub next door for dinner so can't beat that. Parking in rear car park. Small tv in room. Bed comfortable. Very quiet. Tea and coffee in room.

Very comfortable room with original features echoed throughout the B&B. Provided gluten-free and dairy free options for breakfast which was very thoughtful. Felt relaxed during my stay here. Not central for Cardiff nightlife but if you want somewhere more calm and quiet to stay then this would be a great choice.
