Amazing place
I loved my stay at Central Guest House.Here is what I liked. - Clean and tidy; - Lounge space with tea/coffee corner with provision for herbal/specialty tea. I usually use my own teabags as I like a strong blend but I didn't need to have bothered. The guest house had a brand that was good enough. - The owners were kind enough to allow late check out and also gave me a lift to the University of South Wales where I had a meeting.It was drizzling, so I appreciate the gesture. - The room I stayed in had a view of the town and lush green hills in the backdrop. The view certainly helped me to focus well in preparing for my meeting. I would highly recommend this place to anybody travelling to USW. There is a shortcut route to USW which took us less than 3/4 minutes in car (possibly 10 mins. walking distance). This route does not show up in google. This could be useful for people who want to travel to USW's treforest campus (ask John). I wish them all the best.

Very pleasant stay
Great little place, very friendly owners. Only downfall (which is no reflection on the owners) is we had a snorer and I mean a really loud one upstairs. You cant hear anything else from the other rooms, but whoever was upstairs in the loft room was really setting of the Richter scale. Overall a very pleasant stay, some nice eating places not too far away and close to the train station which is handy for getting into Cardiff.
