Our two night stay at Alan and Liz's Number 62 Cathedral Road over the long weekend was great! A few other reviews have mentioned this and we are inclined to agree - it is a home away from home experience. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed and stocked with all the utilities one would expect. Number 62 is very well located and just a short walk away from the park and the castle. It is also great value for money - you would truly ask yourself why you would ever stay in a bland, generic hotel.

Finally, Liz and Allan are wonderful hosts - welcoming, thoughtful and great to have a chat to! My wife and I would recommend Number 62 to our friends and the next time we are in Cardiff, we'll certainly be visiting again!

Our 3 day stay was fantastic at this B & B. It was such a lovely area with only 5 minutes walk to the beautiful park, and about 10 minutes to the city centre. The area is quiet and easy to find as well with a few little pubs close by for a late night ale. Liz and Allan were lovely hosts, always keeping our room spotless and filled with the usual good amenities. It was almost a home away from home for my partner and I. We would definitely stay here again.

Myself and a friend stayed in this amazing B&B for the long jubilee weekend. Words can not describe how brilliant it is, it is a proper home from home experience, with the owners Liz and Alan making you feel welcome from the start - from the text you get saying your room is ready right down to the added extras i.e the lovely biccies and the toiletries. The location is brilliant and i would highly recommend the sightseeing bus which is located outside the castle grounds.As for places to eat the guest information was excellent as it stated where Liz and Alan suggested to eat and Alan was on hand to reiterate how nice the food was at the various places. My recommendations are : the Beverley Hotel for breakfast with a continental buffet breakfast coming in at £3.50, for main meals : Y Mochyn Du was brilliant and also two doors down The Cricketers was fab. All in all i would definitely recommend this B&B and when i next come to Cardiff will be visiting again

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sophia room at the back and heard no noise at all

I was looking for a place to put up my visiting family and found 62 Cathedral Road by chance. It's a great place to stay while visiting Cardiff. Very friendly, welcoming and considerate hosts, immaculate facilities, spacious and very well located for all tourist attractions and sporting events in Cardiff. My family loved it and I would put up family and friends there again any time. Thank you so much for the brilliant time they had.

As owners of a small hotel ourselves we can be tricky guests, however our weekend visit to Number 62 far exceeded our already high expectations.

Meticulously clean and extremely comfortable rooms - our family room was ideal for 4 of us. The beds and the linen were great quality. The extra touches of snacks and juices in rooms made our boys very happy, as did the flatscreen TV.

Liz and Alan the owners of number 62 skillfully strike a lovely balance of being very friendly, welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. They arranged a table for us at the adjacent Cricketers pub, here we found the food, service and general ambiance to be very very nice.

We look forward to returning to Number 62 in the future and would highly recommend it as an excellent base for any visit to Cardiff - family, leisure or business.

Well located beautiful and friendly. Manages to achieve the fine balance between being attentive without being intrusive
Number 62 is on a main road, just a stroll through the park from the city centre. Parking is on the street, which may be a problem if you need to get close to the hotel at busy times. Breakfast is not provided but this is more than amply offset by the choice of nearby establishments which would suit any budget.
I wanted for nothing and would heartily recommend it.

Liz and Alan were very helpful during the booking process and also very friendly but not intrusive.
The hotel is a few minutes walk from the centre and even closer from Bute park, so we did not use the car during our staying. Alan was helpful and gave us a map of the centre as soon as we arrived for our visit.
The room were immaculate, very confortable and the bathroom incredibly shinny. There is a nice pub accross the road which serves good and very affordable food.
Our room was facing the park/cricket stadium and was very quiet.
Next time I will be in Cardiff there is no doubt that it will be my first choice.
One of my best hotel experience.
