Amazing house! David was away, but his wife Yan took excellent care of my friend and I. We were able to drop our bags off when we first arrived in Cardiff, which was a major plus. Excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend!
Staying at the Urban Jungle was a truly great experience!
David was away, but Yan, his wife was a wonderful host. The breakfast she makes clearly goes the extra mile: It included fresh fruit, fresh crispy bread, a great choice of cereals, and, last but not least, her delicious coffee! She even gave us a lift to the railway station on our last day.
The room is quiet and cleanly, and the whole house has a beautiful interior. There is a small bathroom for guests. We could use the kitchen, which is another plus point.
Charmante et chaleureuse maison!
David et Yann sont des hôtes tout simplement adorables qui savent nous faire nous sentir chez nous et nous donnent envie de rester plus longtemps!
Le petit déjeuner est bon, et il vaut le coup de mettre plus pour goûter aux saucisses de zèbre!
Nous avons vraiment passé un bon moment, à recommander à tout le monde!
We stay 2 nights to David's house : great place and welcome from David and his wife. They live near Cardiff's center....all was perfect !!!
Thanks a lot !
Really enjoyed the stay at David's. The place is amazing, so full of character and colour. David has been extremely attentive to all our needs. Would highly reccomend to anyone visiting Cardiff.
A lovely room in a very welcoming house. This was a great place to stay while attending a conference at Cardiff University. David and Yan made me feel very much at home.
We had a fantastic experience with David and Yan. The house is well kept and welcoming. Our room was clean, comfortable (towels included!), and very quiet - a great night's rest.
David and Yan's hospitality was the most positive part of the experience. They were very accommodating and keen to suggest things to do in Cardiff and the environs. Breakfast was always a nice affair, full of great conversation.
If you come to Cardiff, you must stay here! We loved it.
Thanks a lot for the delight place and warm welcome you have provided! The house is so lovely and David and Yan's company was perfect. It was great to be able to stay a night in such a beautiful place as well as to be offered great coffee and food and interesting conversation. Also thanks for being flexible of check in and out time and drive me near the station:)! Hope to see both of you again when the chance permits!
We had a great stay with David, on arrival we were offered wine and cheese, a great way to say hello!
Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious and the whole house had a great vibe.
Breakfast was wonderful, we had Wilderbeast sausages, amongst other delicious things, also a special mention has to go the coffee which was superb.
I thourghly recommend staying at David's.
We are four days by David. It was very nice to choose him. Luxurious Breakfast and amasing Barista-Coffee. Warm, spacious and friendly. Thums up five times.
