    The toilet in the bathroom is too close to the wall for comfort.

    The host and owner is very happy and friendly with his guests and he is warm and welcoming. The property is in an ideal location of town with lots of shops, cafes, bars all surrounding the apartment. Plenty of places to eat and buy goods. There is no parking but spaces can be had for one hour to offload luggage.

    Oven was difficult to operate, would have been nice to have sugar, etc (guests had left some bits behind), not a great selection of glasses - all stuff which would make a longer stay less desirable but for a long weekend it was perfectly find to cope without these. Only a suggestion - perhaps a folder of nearby attractions, taxi nums, etc would be nice :)

    Really flexible, great location, lovely host. Area was apparently "rough" but we didn't notice this (as 2 girls) - had all you needed, lots of shops, nice pubs and cafes plus a 20 minute easy walk to the city. Flat was compact (we stayed in studio) but that was expected. Clean, great shower and balcony a brilliant addition

    The apartment and its contents were a tatty/broken and not clean (had to wash anything before use) . The boiler was very noisy and as it was cold we had to have the heating on. The bed was the most uncomfortable I have had to sleep on for a long time....3 nights of not very much sleep!!

    Good location as not too far to walk to the city but there are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the Canton area. The owner was lovely and helpful. The apartment was a good size. The parking is split between free street parking and parking in the car park which is cheap

And very good access to the city center. Mike was also very kind enough to provide a table when we requested for one. And we wanted to book an extra room and we had no issues at all.

    Cosy, clean, well furnished, very comfortable home from home. Loved the private grassed terrace. Plenty of facilities to cook own meals such as oven, pots, pans, fridge freezer or if you don't feel like cooking there's lots of places to eat within walking distance, fish and chips (across the road), pizza, English cafes, Wetherspoons, Indian and Chinese restaurants, deli, bakery etc. Co-op, Tesco and Iceland all only a few hundred yards in either direction. Great location if you want to be near city centre but not right in it. Only 10 mins by bus. Stops almost outside apartment and served by several routes. Even though on a main road we were not disturbed by road noise. Liked that towels, tea towels and washing up liquid/sponge and hand soap supplied. Host was a joy to deal with and very flexible with regards to key pick up and drop off. This apartment is an excellent alternative to staying in a faceless hotel and I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

    Located in an area 15-min walking distance to the city center with a supermarket next door and lots of restaurants, we were lucky to find this accomodation on short notice... during the Rugby World Cup. Unfortunately the apartment wasn't as tidy as we hoped for and the bed wasn't too comfortable.

    Mike is such a nice guy. The communication was perfect. He even picked us up at the station in the late evening and told us about some sights and interesting things to see in Cardiff. The apartment is located close to the city center (15 min walking distance) and the garden is a nice-to-have (especially for smokers).

    The mattress was very uncomfortable. You feel the metal rings on your body when you were in the bed, especially when you turned. Requested some extra blankets to sleep better. They provided some relieve. It wasn't particularly clean, i.e. half a centimeter dust on the bathroom shelve/mirror, or stains on the closet cover ( though closet itself was clean), which with a bit of water were gone.

    Looks like the place isn't cleaned to often, dirty cutlery/mugs, thick layer of dust on tv/top of furniture, towels smelled funky, the whole place was creaky, you could hear other folk walking around.

    Fully equipped kitchen, nice furnishings, big, good soundproofing on windows (bedroom had a window towards the street but didn't hear any noises from cars).
