We spend 2 nights in the lovely guest house. When we arrived there, we needed to ring the bell and the owner welcomed us. She gave us information about breakfast time and restaurant opening time. She lead us to our room. It was room number 3, on the first floor. It was a small room, but totally enough only to...

Stayed at this hotel while visiting relatives in Cardiff. Impressed by all elements of the hotel from friendly owners/staff (it is very much a family run hotel) to food and to room size/cleanliness - the hotel also has a bar and serves tapas daily along with pizza, chips etc. Considering the price charged (around £65 per night per room) it...

Such lovely hosts...who were upbeat, happy and funny. Huge breakfast and no shortage of toast. Would have loved to have sampled the tapas but couldn't wait for the five oclock opening of the restaurant. Beautiful walks locally and a fun fair for amusement!

Just returned from a two night stay here. We arrived earlier than expected but we were still checked in and welcomed with no mention of our timing. The room is lovely and clean with a nice comfy bed. They've put some thought into the little details such as hairdryer, iron, ironing board and toiletries which is always appreciated. The location...
