Cardiff House 62 - Accomodation and Activities
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 12
A newly refurbished property in the lively Cathays area of Cardiff, ideal for hen weekends; pamper weekends, stag weekends, rugby / football weekends, family stays and shopping trips. The property boasts 4 bedrooms with a mixture of single beds, bunk beds and 1 triple bunk bed, ideal for groups of up to 12. As the property is newly refurbished all rooms are stylish, new and modern. There are 2 showers built in a quirky cubicle fashion and 1 w/c, a lounge for relaxing, a modern kitchen, a private garden with seating and an optional gazebo available on request.
There are shops, bars and restaurants in the immediate area but the property is only a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute taxi ride from the city centre.
I am also able to offer great activity packages at affordable prices for those wishing to make the most of their stay and take the stress out of planning; I have some great places involved and these packages are ideal for Hens, Stags and birthday weekends and can be tailored to your needs.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your stay, this is the first negative review or feedback that I have received so I will definitely take on board your views and resolve the relevant issues for future guests.
Regarding the location of the house, yes it is in a student area. As I deal with many young hen and stag parties this is actually usually a positive as these groups want to be in a area with bars and restaurant nearby. I do advise guests of this when asked and the description attached to the advert does advise viewers that the house is located in the 'lively' are of Cathays. It also advises potential guests that it will take 15 minutes to walk into town or a 5 minute taxi, which again young hen and stag usually see as a positive.
If I am unable to greet guests, then Jon will go to hand over the keys. I'm unsure what information you would have liked to have been given outright but I'm sure Jon would have been happy to answer any questions, as am I. In regards to the information book, this provides quite a lot of information including, local amenities, recommended restaurants and bars, bars and restaurants which offer lunch time deals and / or happy hours, local attractions and things to do outside of Cardiff, house rules, check in and out times, directions to town by foot, local busses and local taxi numbers. If you did have any recommendations for what else should be included, I would be more than happy to update the booklet for future guests.
In regards to dining, unfortunately there is no separate dining room however this is clear within the house description and pictures attached to the advertisement. Many of the guests will use the tables and chairs in the garden. There are a nest of three tables in the lounge although two had been broken by previous guests just before your stay so I do apologise. These have now been replaced so there are once again three small tables. In regards to seating, there are stools in the cupboard under the stairs, in response to your review, I will put these in the lounge so future guest will be able to see them.
In regards to the house pictures, I took these myself with a standard digital camera and I do believe these are a true reflection of the house so I am sorry you were disappointed.
In relation to the shower, towel hooks are provided however I take on board your suggestion for shower curtains in a different material.
In relation to cleaning, again this is the first negative view I have received as usually guests provide positive feedback on this so I appreciate you bringing this to my attention and will deal with this immediately . I have recently had a baby, so on a short term basis, I have had to outsource the house duties to a local cleaning company. I will definitely speak to them in relation to the points raised and until I have resumed these responsibilities (which is at the end of April), I will ensure the house is thoroughly checked over before guests arrive.
In regards to the return of the deposit, once guests have provided me with the required details, I transfer the money within 2 days. In this particular instance, I did have to request further details from you four times. I agree I am not familiar with overseas transfers however if I had received all the relevant details straight away then I could have transferred the deposit much quicker. I will however now know for future reference to ask overseas guests for all required details in the first instance.
In regards to cost, the house can accommodate up to twelve people which equates to just £70 each for the whole weekend. I would note that this is lower than the majority of other twelve person houses available and therefore I do believe I offer good value.
Once again, I am sorry the property was not for you and I will rectify the relevant issues immediately and therefore appreciate these matters being brought to my attention.

"A* -Highly Recommend"
Great house. All rooms were spacious, nicely decorated, clean and functional! Duvets were especially soft and comfy!
Perfect location for Cardiff centre, the bay and other attractions.
Lots of free parking and easy to find!
Would definitely recommend.

"Perfect for stag parties"
I recently booked the house for a stag do instead of a group hotel booking. Really glad I did. The place is perfectly catered to this sort of thing with no fuss bunk bed sleeping arrangements, fun and quirky decor and back garden for barbecues and outdoor parties.
It's in the student area of town so plenty of cafes and pubs around but only a fiver for a taxi into to town centre or a 25 min walk.
Anna, the manager is really friendly and accommodating and was flexible about arranging pick up of keys etc.
Highly recommended as an affordable alternative to hotel, especially for larger groups.

"Perfect house for a perfect hen do!"
Stayed in House 62 with 11 of my friends for my hen do and couldn't have been happier. The house was everything we wanted - clean, spacious, modern and only a 5 minute taxi ride from all the shops and bars/clubs.
We arranged a hen package through Anna who was really helpful and nothing too much trouble for her - she even left personalised hen gifts which I loved! Her finishing touches made the weekend even more special.
Would definitely recommend!
