"Wow, what a views!"

We had an absolutely fantastic time in Cardiff and a major contribution to this was the Foretop. Absolutely amazing views (could forget that you were in the UK, especially at night) but also the interior was great - none of your usual "flowery wallpapers-curtains-sofas-carpets" average UK holiday-rental place with cheap utencils from Ikea :)
Very tasteful fictures and fittings, quite modern yet soooo cosy. Very peacful and quiet but still close to the city, so great if you want to go out too. Cant fault anything. Definitely will recommend to anyone and will go back myself (and next time with kids as they would love the outdoors!).
Thanks!

"Great views and comfortable accomodation"

What a wonderful place to stay; the accomodation was great and had stunning views across Cardiff. A good sized lounge/dining room that we could all spread out in (2 adults and 2 teenage boys) and not get in each others way. We used the Foretop as a base for visiting local attactions and towns and found this very convenient.
