“So much better than a hotel”
Reviewed 18 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Staying here with two elderly mothers for weekend was so much better (and cheaper) than a hotel or B&B. The Maisonette is very well fitted out, comfy lounge, excellent kitchen/diner (brand new dishwasher). And the heating warms the place up quickly - important in mid-winter. Beds perhaps a little on the hard side, but that's down to taste.

Very convenient for a walk into town through the park, and plenty of parking at the back - although the entrance is tight so don't bring a limo or large MPV/SUV. (There's usually space on Cathedral Road anyway.)

Grocery welcome pack very useful.

“A wonderful stay had by all!!”

We stayed here for 3 weeks over the Christmas period and can't wait to return!
My family and I (2 adults, 2 children 4 & 1 year old) received a warm welcome from the owner who made us feel at ease straight away. We were provided with a lovely welcome pack including lots of information about the local area. The property was clean and modern and had a lovely homely feeling to it. The owner provided us with a cot and highchair and really made sure the children were catered
for. Parking on site was a huge bonus for us. The property is situated within walking distance to the city centre. There are some very nice restaurants situated less than a 5 minute walk away. Thank you for making our Christmas special, we'll be back!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The Maisonette was amazing. Its a 15 minute walk from the city centre and just on the outskirts of Bute Park. The accommodation, is very well maintained, clean, comfortable and felt like a home from home.

The owner could not have done anymore to make us feel welcome, they really went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed including supplying brand new bedding for an extra guest!

5 stars are not enough!

“Great location, accommodation welcoming and comfortable”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The flat is in a perfect spot for walking into Cardiff city centre, the castle and the park. We were allowed to come early and offload bags because of timing with doctor who and had a warm reception. The kids loved the welcome pack (welsh cakes were a hit), they gave it a high rating...
The flat was warm, comfortable and enhanced our stay in Cardiff, we would recommend it to family/friends and if ever lucky enough to make it back to wales would stay there again.

“Reasonable standard - like a good student / post grad. flat.”
Reviewed 13 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Not quite as nice as I was expecting - more like a nice student flat than a 5* apartment for a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers.

However, the location is good (can walk to town centre by road or through Bute Park). Owner is communicative by email and helpful and apartment was mostly clean (windows are all dirty though).

Entrance hall for house - dingy and student like. I am guessing it is a student house divided into flats - but we were only awoken at 5 am once in the 4/5 days by noise from flat adjacent.
Actual flat: nice lounge and kitchen. Bedrooms a bit grim - especially the windows (dirty and covered in condensation). Upstairs bathroom dingy. Downstairs bathroom so small a shower wets the whole room!

Nice location. In all and ok standard and we love Cardiff.

Beware car park at back does not allow in tall vehicles or cars with roofboxes - so we could not use that.

Thank you very much for your valuable feedback and I'm so sorry the accommodation did not meet your expectations. We would have been happy to address the issues during your stay however we appreciate you bringing the issues we could resolve to our attention and they've now been rectified. The building is not owned or occupied by students and The Maisonette has it's own entrance separate to the main building. The parking access does have a height restriction as advertised but there is also lots of free on street parking available. I'm glad to hear you still enjoyed your break in Cardiff and very much hope you will return to the area again.
