Steve Anderson, Proprietor
The property is a 7 bedroom town house, originally built in the early Edwardian period circa. 1904, located on a well-respected street in the town connecting Cardiff Road with the old Miners ' Hospital [since closed]. The guest house is fully compliant with all health and safety regulations, business insurance requirements and Listed with Visit Wales Ref: B203947. Quality and service: The business is principally a Bed and Breakfast facility. We aim to provide: A friendly and personal service. We will try and assist you in making your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The property and the hospitality might be a little 'quirky' at times, but that is part-and-parcel of the character and ambience of this family guest house. Try and be flexible and keep an open mind, but feel free to point out faults and short-comings. A subtle sense of place. We recognize that many visitors - whether as tourists, business / professional or family visitors - wish to enjoy an authentic experience of visiting Caerphilly (a town renowned for its famous castle and cheese) and south Wales. A good standard of furnishing to provide comfortable accommodation.
Steve Anderson is the proprietor; he hails not from Caerphilly , nor Wales! Steve is a 'Scotsman' without an accent! Steve has lived abroad extensively, with a serviceman's background, and having taught history (amongst other things) in Kenya, Kuwait, Peru and Dubai. Steve describes himself as cheerful, fair, reasonable, pragmatic (no nonsense / no frills), helpful, honest and hard-working. I chose this vocation as it allows me to meet and interact with people from all walks of life and countries. I like a cosmopolitan atmosphere, and get a thrill from hosting people here for special events i.e. rugby internationals, Big Cheese, and concerts which take place in Caerphilly Castle and Cardiff.
