“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

We stay for 2 nights in SACO apartments. The located is excellent near to the city centre and minutes away from the park and castle. The apartment was lovely and spacious as well as being well equip with kitchen utensils, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The manager Liz was also very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: I would imagine that the apartments at the back of the house are quieter as they are facing the par...

Me and my friends stayed here last weekend and we had a brilliant time. The apartment was spacious, beautifully designed and laid out and most of all we had everything we could have asked for (i.e parking space, towels, bedding, adequate pillows and even milk)

The apartment was secure and conveniently located. The only negative I would have is the hot water ran out too quickly but I guess there were a few of us.

I would definitely recommend Cardiff and even more so this apartment.

We stayed two nights in a one bedroom apartment in this beautifully converted period house, although we were in the coach house in what would have been the garden, but now houses the car park. The rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings making it feel quite spacious. Fittings are good and everything you need to get started is provided - milk,tea, coffee, cereal. Just right for an overnight or brief stay.Good quality towels and bedlinen. If you want to cook, that is well provided for with a multi use microwave, hob and oven and dishwasher (and dishwasher tablets too!). The bed was comfortable although only 4'6" which we found a little small. The area is good for eating out - just a short walk to the excellent restaurants at Pontcanna. We particularly liked Cafe Brava for a good breakfast and friendly, lively atmosphere. Walking into Cardiff centre is pleasant as you can walk through the nearby Sophia Gardens, coming out by the castle. One extra thing which we liked - the heating is controllable with proper instructions on how to use the system.

Room Tip: I would choose a room facing the back - towards the sports ground - as it has less traffic noise.

What a fantastic and enjoyable stay we had. On arrival we had a slight challenge with regards to getting in - (not the best with technology) rang the Emergency number - Liz answered in a few rings - had a Homer Simpson moment (DoH) and got in.
The standard of the accommodation was beyond our expectation.
Beds: very, very comfortable - all mattresses have just been replaced! A great nights sleep
Ambiance: Ok the cliché word is nothing short of 5***** - we have stayed in a number of great hotels around the world - but for a family and home accommodating night this ranks in the top 5
Kitchen area: very clean and well stocked for an initial arrival - usual items, coffee, tea, Milk (2 pint of) chocolate, (Green and Black), cereal for the morning.
Television in the main room and the bedrooms - all channels from Freeview - so adequate
Cleaning: the cleanliness of the apartment was better than most hotel rooms - really!!!
Car Parking - not a problem once you found how to drive round the back - ample parking spaces in a very, very secure parking area
Now the main bit: The following day Liz due to my Homer Simpson night came along to make sure my wife and son where OK and was there anything she could do: Nothing short of exceeding your customers expectations comes to mind
Would we go back…………… in a blink of an eye, except it’s a 5 hour drive to get there on a cluttered motorway

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear are great for Country Bumbkins, rooms at the front are fantastic for London/City p...
