Friendly staff, cool decor, delicious food, walking distance from good restaurants and pubs. This was the nicest place we stayed during our two weeks in the U.K., and had the tastiest food.

I took my first visit to Cardiff last month, and wanting somewhere other than a travelodge or an ibis without breaking the bank checked Tripadvisor to see what the reviews were for various offers. Fortunately, Ty Rosa had excellent reviews (and were available through a quidco partner) and the price was slightly, but not significantly higher than a budget chain...

We were SO happy we decided to stay here. In fact, after we met the owner we begged him to let us stay a extra night and he managed to squeeze us in. The second we walked in he whipped out a map and showed us everything in Cardiff, including one of the best restaurants I ate at in Wales....

We had a fabulous time at Ty Rosa. We went to celebrate a birthday and Paul & Stewart went all out for us. All we had to do was give a wish list and it was granted at extremely reasonable prices too. The fairy godmothers also know how to cook, the meal was delicious. Our room was extremely comfortable. We...

Stayed here for one night in the summer. 15 minute walk to the city center in a residential neighbourhood. Rooms were quiet, clean and comfortable, and the owners were friendly and helpful. recommended.

We visited Cardiff on a Saturday night. The owners would not book an en-suite room for just one night, so we ended up across the street from the main property in the smallest room we have stayed in -- ever. There was no space for luggage, no chair to sit on, and walking space (very narrow) on only one side...

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us here at Ty Rosa, We are a B&B which are not the same as hotels, so you would not expect to find the same facilities as a hotel, nor the same price. We and many accommodation providers only offer 2 night minimum stay at weekends (as...

This was an easy place to stay in. Very friendly staff and a relaxed well-decorated environment made two days pleasant indeed. An amazing breakfast! The added extras such as dressing gowns, toiletries and bottles of water in the room made Ty Rosa stand out from other B & Bs at a similar price. I fully recommend Ty Rosa!

My room was comfy and clean. I felt so well taken care of by Paul and Stuart. The breakfasts were delicious and definitely worth waking up for. I liked the B&B's residential location and easy bus access. I can't wait to come back!
