I loved the bathrooms and the cosiness of the room.
Avala was on the main road with bus stop very handy. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. On site parking was a bonus
Found our room a bit of a squeeze
It was a good place to stay due to the location, the triple room and cleanliness of the guesthouse. Could not fault that at all. Staff were good and warned us on one occasion which was nice of them to do (re: the doors and the noise). Price for 7 boys, one triple room, one twin room and one double room was really good. cannot fault the price and clean spacey rooms.
However, the doors slammed a lot, so had to be careful as we had complaints from other guests. The bathroom door did not lock. It was a fair walk in to the city centre.
The location, the bus station just in front of the house, the tea in the room, the room dimensions.
Too small place for placing shaving tools, the basin has two separate taps, hot and cold, instead a mixer. The walls are too thin in the walled-up doors, so despite the massiveness of the majority of walls the sound traveled among the rooms.
location is good and if needed bus station is just in front of it.
Friendly efficient staff offering an excellent service at a very reasonable price
size of room
Too close to front door and noisy traffic
Ease of getting into Cardiff City Centre.
No chair in room.
clean value for money rooms.
Unable to leave window open as it opened onto unsecured fire escape. Noisy building work on site next door.
Asked and was given a quiet room at the back. No fussing - accepted everything.
No shampoo - only a bar of soap Breakfast ( continental) was extra.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Nothing to dislike for me
Window opened right onto a fire escape so did not feel secure to leave window open at night so it got quite hot and stuffy in the room
Everything we were wcomed and shown everything in person we were allowed to park after two day of staying for a bit longer. Great hosts
Room was a little warm
Well served by bus routes that take you to city centre quickly. Spacious rooms Good bathroom
Lack of a main reception makes check in and check out outside of hours difficult
Nice clean room, comfortable, walking distance (10m) from center
Sometimes sounds from nearby rooms could be heard
Location was nice for bus and cheap when needed taxi, staff was great during breakfast super friendly.
Would be nice to Have staff more avaliable only ever saw a person at check in and breakfast would have been nice to ask for recomendations and where ti meet up with tour groups also wifi did not work.
Absolutely clean and tidy. Room is spacious and comfortable. Staff is very nice an helpful. Me and my husband enjoy the staying so much and would love to stay there again if we visit cardiff. Ps I was told by the website there is no WiFi in the room and only shower room. Ended up, we were surprised that there is strong WiFi everywhere and a bath!
Sound proof can be better. Maybe we were unlucky. During the first night, there were so young girls coming back from party, and made noises in the corridor.
The room was lovely and big with two windows to let in plenty of light and fresh air. The bed was very comfortable and the whole place was very clean. Definitelly value for money.
We enjoyed a friendly welcome and were very pleased to have been given a ground-floor room as requested. It was a bright and comfortable bedroom.
Unfortunately, when we returned in the evening there was no heating on and we spent a cold first night and morning. When reported, the problem was dealt with for the next evening but there was still no heat on in the morning. Secondly, as elderly people, we found it difficult to put on the shower, let the water warm up and then manoevre into the raise cubicle. Another towel rail would be appreciated too.
Upon arrival we were given a room which smelled of smoke in such a severe way that we were never be able to sleep in it. The staff member was very kind to give us another room which was very comfortable and actually a "flat" but the smoke came up the stairway. It seems people are allowed to smoke in some of the rooms. We had one free room in our flat and it also smelled of smoke. The staff member said that the occupiers were fined £100 but I think they should have better and more strict ways of regulating this smoking. It is very off putting and this beautiful guest house smells like a shack, due to these inconsiderate people.
The location is very good for the fact that the bus stop is just right outside!
The breakfast is not worth £4.95!
Very Clean, very fresh smelling all the way through, personal touches such as being show to our room and friendly staff. It was ideally located being just out of the centre meant you didn't get the usual city noises and it was only a 15 min walk. Free parking was a bonus. Daily housekeeping was good.
Beds very, very uncomfortable we felt very tired the next morning. Whilst rooms had been upgraded they were very tired in places such as old metal frame windows and bathroom lino not fitting. No window furnishing in bathroom, left us feeling a little exposed despite the opaque glass. Little things let it down such as there were no plugs for the lamps by the bedside tables, the mirror was in an awkward position rather than over the dressing table. The room got very hot. The breakfast though we didn't opt for that was very basic and not worth the money. As a budget guest house I felt it was a bit pricy for the standard of accommodation we were getting compared to the travel lodge/holiday inn you can get better standard of room for a similar price.
the beds were comfy
the room was a bit cold
