We all had an amazing stay at Sophia Walk, I can't recommend this place enough. Perfect location, amazing place. We enjoyed 2 nights here and we will all definitely be back. Thanks so much to everyone who made our stay perfect.Becki from UK - 9th May 2018
An excellent place to stay. Sophia Walk was in a great location. It was warm and cosy and we even sat out in the garden in the sunshine. We used trains and buses to get about and had fun exploring the Castle and St.Fagan's. A lovely break. We had a fantastic time and would book again. Julie from Cheltenham - 8th April 2018
Amazing!!!Jade from Gloucestershire - 4th April 2018

Had an excellent stay.Suzanne from Sheffield - 14th February 2018
All the girls agree it’s the nicest place we’ve stayed in on one of our weekends. Everyone I dealt with was very accommodating and communication was excellent. Many thanks for a fab weekend.Laura from Cullompton - 14th November 2017
It was in the perfect area for our needs. A short walk through beautiful Bute park to the city centre. Comfortable & quiet with all that was needed in the kitchen and lounge & bedrooms. If we return in the warmer months I'm sure we would use the patio. The walk through Bute park to catch the boat is an easy way to visit the Bay. We recommend the Bayview Brasserie, in the evening and The Potted Pig for Sunday lunch. The best roast dinner ever! Afternoon tea in the tea room just inside Bute park gate (Pettigrew Tea Rooms) comes highly recommended. For people watching a coffee at the cafe by the foot bridge is a must. Castell Coch & Caerphilly Castle to visit. Next visit must do Cardiff Castle, so much to see, need a day!Family from Llandysul - 31st October 2017
Fab apartment! Everything was perfect. We will definitely be back for another stay.
Tips: We always went into the city centre for food and drink.Friends from Llanybydder - 7th August 2017
