A quiet stress free haven (Cardiff )

Kyvielog Street is a short road which is bordered at one end by Cathedral Road (one of the main routes into the city) and at the other end by Pontcanna Fields, an extensive parkland through which it is a pleasant short walk to the New Theatre, the Sherman Theatre and the city itself. There is also good public transport.

There are two rooms available for digs guests. The first is on the third floor. It is light and airy with a good view. The room itself comprises a double bedroom which is comfortably furnished.

Lovely house and very friendly hosts. They gave me useful information about the local area and made me feel very welcome.

It is a little bit further away from the theatre than is ideal for some people but it's a nice walk through the park and I felt perfectly safe when walking home at night (even when the rugby was on!).

I would definitely stay here again. Superb!

Great digs that are a stones throw from the beautiful Bute Park.

Clean, light and airy. A 15 minute walk to the New Theatre through the park and a few minutes more at night via the main road.

A very enjoyable stay!

Peter and Chris are wonderfully friendly, generous hosts who made my 2 week stay in Cardiff feel as though I was visiting with good friends.

The bedroom is spacious, bright and airy, yet cosy; the bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is bright, airy, clean & modern.

It is conveniently located to all the necessary amenities and suited my needs perfectly. The High Street and Cardiff Castle are a very easy stroll away.

I found this to be an excellent place to stay and I recommend it to anyone requiring accommodation in Cardiff.
