“Lovely maissonette perfect location.”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at this maissonette over Easter as my daughter was competing in th Cardiff half marathon.It is in an ideal situation walking distance of the city centre and about 10 minutes walk to the aquabus which takes you on a pleasant trip to Cardiff Bay and The Doctor Who Experience. It was a spotless and very comfortable base to stay with everything you need and more.

Lovely host. All arrangements were easy. Apartment is lovely. Bus ride into town (it was raining!), but walkable. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a convenient Cardiff stay.

“A weekend in Cardiff for the Rugby and to catch up with family”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed at La Maisonette Cathedral Rd Cardiff for the weekend of the 4th to the 6th of September 2015. We traveled down from North Wales with our son, daughter in law and grandson and also meet friends from Cheshire at the apartment for the weekend.

We were not able to give a firm time of arrival to the owner so she was not able to meet us however a basket of provisions was left for us which we were not expecting. This including bread milk orange juice and welsh cakes etc over and above what would be required to this was a nice start.

We were told that there were two parking spaces at the back of the property for us to use. The owner said they were tight to get into. We did manage to get cars through the gate way but it was very tight as explained. Once inside there was plenty of room to turn the cars around. This would be off putting to some people. The back entrance is off Sophia Lane which is narrow and there were some resurfacing works going on at the time which didn't help but I'm sure this will all sort itself out once the works have finished. Being able to park the car here is a great benefit due to high parking charges in Cardiff City Centre.

The location of the apartment is about a 15 min walk, though a pleasant park, from Cardiff City Centre and the Millennium Stadium and all Cardiff has to offer. There are plenty of pubs locally to those that don't want to venture into Cardiff. On the Sunday morning the Cardiff 10k runners ran past the front of the flat up Cathedral Rd which was very nice as we were able to see another 3 family members who were running in the event.

The flat itself is spread over two floors and quite spacious. There is a large kitchen diner lounge and shower room on the ground floor and three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. There is also a nice pleasant rear courtyard with tables and chairs to sit in when the weather is nice. One criticism would be that although there are double beds in all bedrooms two of the doubles are side on to the wall so that getting in and out of the wasn't that easy, in saying that this did not spoil our very enjoyable stay. There was free wifi at the property which was also useful.

The flat is part of a larger terraced house which is converted so there are three other flats around you i.e. above you and in front of you. This did not cause us any problems as we were not a noisy group however this maybe worth bearing in mind for other parties wishing to use the flat

We will stay again and look forward to our next visit. This is ideal for any family or extended family wishing to stay in Cardiff and not wishing to pay hotel prices and giving you more freedom to come and go as you please.

Well recommended please check it out

Many thanks for your review and I'm glad you and your family had a pleasant and comfortable stay. As an update, I'm informed that the Council-led re-surfacing works in the rear lane are almost complete now and plans are in place to widen the access point. Just one small point for anyone reading your review, there are no other flats above our property as we occupy the whole of the back of the building. So glad you enjoyed your trip and that you may return to Cardiff at some point in the future. Kind regards, Caroline
