This is the smallest double room, of the 4 bedrooms, I offer to guests. Sleeps up to 2 people and situated upstairs, in the back of the house overlooking the garden. Ideal for the single guest who just needs to get a good night's sleep after exploring the sites of the city, or 2 guests with little luggage. There is floor space to store luggage underneath the bed and a retractable hanging rail.
It has a double bed plus storage cabinet, TV+Freeview, wooden floors, bedside lamp, blinds+curtain, hairdryer, full length mirror, tissues, hand sanitiser and wi-fi. Guests are given keys for the bedroom+front door. There is NO wardrobe in this room.
There is a bathroom with shower just next door to this room.
Clean laundered linens are provided, as well as towels.
The house has 3 other bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with showers, wi-fi, garden, large kitchen/diner, utilities room and free street parking. There may be other guests staying at the same time, I will keep you informed.

Interaction with Guests
I like to be on hand to offer brochures, maps, a Cardiff A-Z street map, local advice and to give the guests a tour of the house and where they can access. See my 'Guidebook' for recommendations.
I like my guests to be fed and watered, so always ask.
I love a drink and a chat with guests around the kitchen table, there's nothing better.
I can order cabs for guests, book a restaurant and occasionally get rugby tickets.

It's not the nicest of place names, Splott, however, it is an historical part of the city with it's working class character and has what I need to survive, locally. It's a true flavour of Cardiff living and you would also get to hear a proper Cardiff accent!
There's a parade of local shops for food, drink, fresh bread, cashpoints, Post Office, nailbar and 2 fantastic cafes, which I highly recommend.
Splott is on the edge of the city centre, so it's just a 10mins drive or a walkable 25mins distance. Two bus services serve the area very well. You only have to walk 5mins to a bus stop and local shops. Please note that street parking is FREE, here!!!
