The property was just as shown on the website and every bit as clean and spacious. We were very pleased with the property and the attention provided by Rhodri. The property was in excellent condition and we will be recommending Pen Dinas to our friends when travelling to Cardiff. I came upon Best of Wales by chance as I was looking to book Pen Dinas through another website. Once on Best of Wales I was very impressed with the layout and ease of use. The information available was also impressive, it made me completely comfortable with booking my accommodations. Once I booked the correspondence that followed was nothing short of excellent. Everything that I needed was included in several emails, there was an issue with my dates but that was quickly rectified. We actually drove over from London and was a little concerned about the key collection but we reached out to Rhodri who graciously allowed my son to collect the keys in advance to avoid any issues in case we were delayed. It was an overall wonderful trip made that much better by our experience with Best of Wales and the owner Rhodri. Pen Dinas was everything the website said it would be, it provided all the comforts of home and made our vacation that much more enjoyable. The location was great with a very nice breakfast/coffee spot just downstairs on the corner. Rhodri was an excellent host who responded promptly to all our needs. If available I will be booking for my next trip to Cardiff
