“Avoid, Avoid, Avoid. Hidden fees.”
Reviewed 24 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Basic cottage, but if all you need is a foam mattress it'll suffice. A busy rail line is only a few metres away, so there is considerable noise. Central Cardiff is closer to 25 min away with traffic. The most irritating aspect, however, was that on a 4 day rental for £390, we were charged a £55 booking fee plus a £35 cleaning fee (for two people who only slept in the cottage), neither of which was disclosed in advance and which increased the cost of the rental by 23%. We've used holiday lets for 20 years, but this was the first and last time with holidaylettings.co.uk.

Management Response

Please don’t be put off by this review as it is in a minority and the comments are not factually correct. All guests except this one have been very happy with the facilites at the cottage, and I would ask you to please read all the other reviews, which are more realistic.
The local rail line, with few trains, is not close to the cottage. It is not “noisy” as stated and this same guest in contradiction to themselves commented to me by email about how lovely and quiet it was. In addition, the local station is what makes the cottage so convenient for guests without a car.
It is a fact that the cottage is only a 10-12 minutes easy drive to the centre of Cardiff which is 2.5 miles away. It is not a 25 minute journey as stated.
The quote includes all costs and there are absolutely no hidden costs. This comment is totally untrue so this person obviously did not pay attention to the quote.
Be assured, there are normal mattresses on both beds and no “foam” mattress.
This pretty cottage provides self-catering facilities for a reasonable price in a convenient and unusually rural location in the capital city of Wales and is really good value. All the relevant facts about cost and facilities are clearly listed on the website, together with photos of every room and the location. Sincerely, Helen

“Comfy Cardiff Cottage lives up to the name”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We were a group of friends visiting Wales over Easter and we very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was comfortable, cute, had everything we needed and was really just like advertised.
Even though it's close to Cardiff it felt like we were in the middle of the woods with the park on one side and the view over the hills on the other. And it is still close to major roads if you need to get around by car.
We can highly recommend it for shorter or longer stays and if we ever need to go back to Cardiff we'd look up this place again.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Comfy Cardiff Cottage is a fantastic place to stay, it's tucked away in a lovely quiet area but is close enough to town for all the amenities. Helen is a friendly lady who is just next door if you need anything but does not intrude at all. We usually stay in hotels or b&b's when we travel but it was so much nicer to have more than just a room to relax in, would definitely recommend to anybody and can't wait till our next stay there.

“Beautiful stay”
Reviewed 29 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at this cottage for my daughters wedding in Cardiff. Beautiful cottage in a hidden gem of a spot. It feels like you're in the countryside not middle of Llandaff. The cottage was very clean, light, spacious and well equipped. The owners live next door and couldn't have done enough to make our stay better. Very welcoming and friendly. It added to making a very special weekend. I would recommend to all

“Lovely home away from home”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A very comfortable 2 bedroom terraced house near the river Taff, quiet location and near local amenities. Probably an hours walk from downtown Cardiff and convenient for much quicker trains into town.

The owners live next door and were friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

The interior is clean, comfortable and well equipped. Convenient parking for one car.

For me, the only thing missing was a modern TV, as we bought a DVD player but couldn't plug it in. The tiny TV was a CRT and only handled SCART for its freeview.

We were there a week and found it a great place to return to when we were tired, as well as spending pleasant evenings.

“Idyllic cottage in the country but close to the City”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Homely cottage in a nice country setting, yet only 5 - 10 minutes from the centre of Cardiff. Nicely and fully furnished, including all those little extras you forget to take on holiday. Very helpful owner who works hard to make your holiday perfect. Nothing but praise for the property and the owner. We will rent this property again! Great Italian restaurant in Whitchurch, about 10 minutes away!

“Lovely cottage, excellently situated”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a lovely little cottage, well equipped, with a beautiful small garden.It feels like being in the countryside, but is 5 minutes walk away from shops, buses, and a train station which takes you into Cardiff central. Lovely walks from the house, including to Llandaff cathedral, which is well worth a visit. Perfect for a holiday including visits to Cardiff and the wider area.
