We had a wonderful stay at David & Yan's beautiful house. Our room was very comfortable with a brilliant bathroom (with amazing plants). Lovely breakfast too. Many thanks! Claire & Rupert

I can only say recommend this host family and the house. Absolutely cosy and clean, very pleasant conversations with the family and a nice breakfast are something that make you really relaxed. I was in Cardiff for a conference and although the conference venue was fine, I was very glad to have opted for this private accommodation. I got valuable hints and help to get around but could also manage to get away from the crowd to my own room and bathroom. Nevertheless the city centre is within walking distance and in some cases Yan also called a taxi (e.g. to Cardiff Bay or the airport) which always arrived after a few minutes. In summary: I will certainly pay David and Yan another visit if I have to opportunity to do so. I felt very much at home.

Comfortable quiet room with very friendly host. Nothing was too much trouble and even allowed our daughter (student at Cardiff University) to join us for the superb cooked breakfast, a bargain at 5GBP per person. Continental breakfast included. Lovely decor and spotlessly clean. Can't recommend highly enough. 15 min walk to city centre, taxi around 5 GBP . Thank you David and Yan.
