Cardiff is a big-little-city which caters for all ages and budgets. Whether you are coming to the Principality for sport, a concert, Welsh heritage, the architecture, shopping spree or a well earned weekend break, the city will provide. You will find the centre really flat but if you don't fancy walking, bike hire is available. A £3.60 Cardiff Bus ticket will get you around the city until midnight.
Cardiff Bay is a great afternoon jaunt, see The Senedd, Wales Millennium Centre, Norweigen Church, all the bars, pubs & restaurants and The Barrage. Take a Bay boat bus ride around Cardiff and see terrific views over to Penarth.
Come to Cardiff, sample Welsh Brains beer, delicious Welsh cakes, our beautiful language and warm Welsh humour.

Interaction with Guests
I like to be available to guests at breakfast. I have plenty of brochures for local attractions, an A-Z, maps, and local advice on hand.
I can book cabs, restaurants, tickets or make calls for local information. Always ask.
I'm good to go with a glass of wine and a chat around the kitchen table.
I do appreciate guests who read listing details, it makes life easier for the guest to make a decision and then I don't have to repeat myself!
See my 'Guidebook' for recommendations.
You'll find that Splott is a residential area, just on the edge of the city centre, within a walkable distance. It has enough local amenities in order for me to survive. I can get my lotto tickets, tub of Ben+Jerry's, a bet on the 3.30 at Kempton, a huge 2 course meal in El Timon and a bus to the city centre. There's only 1 decent local pub, The Royal Oak, situated 10mins walk away. There's two outstanding bakeries you must experience!
I like the history behind Splott, the community and the local Cardiff 'proper tidy' accent.
You'll find the bus stops to and from the city, both opposite each other on Splott Rd. It's a 7 day service. Bus service No.2 also serves Splott.You can walk to the centre within 25mins, I can give you a map but most people have GPS on their phones. You're not far from the M4 here too.
A cab to the centre will take 10mins at a cost of £6 upwards.
Once you're in the centre, there's an open-top-bus city tour or take the water taxi between the city and Cardiff Bay.
