I encourage other people to start blogs all the time, in fact, if you’re reading this and don’t have a blog, you should really consider starting one. Never in a million years did I think writing from my bedroom would lead to the opportunities it has but last Tuesday, while sat in a luxury apartment, I could not have felt more grateful.
If you didn’t manage to catch my instagram story, me and my Mum spent the night at the newly opened Aaron Wise Serviced Apartments across the river from the Millennium Stadium. It was one of those ‘pinch me’ moments and it really felt like a trip away, even though we were ten minutes from home! The apartments are absolutely beautiful, modern and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a break in the city.
They have all the luxury feel of a high end hotel, prosecco on arrival, robes on the bed and a huge bathroom but with the privacy and comfort of your own space. I’ve tried airbnb a few times because I prefer the apartment vibe but it can be hit-and-miss, whereas this is a guaranteed alternative that is far better.
They are also right in the heart of the city, so if you’re here for the rugby, a concert or just a weekend away you don’t have to worry about taxi’s or directions. We went out to Wahaca for dinner which is on The Hayes and it was less than a 5 minute walk away. Aaron Wise have also created a Cardiff hotspot map which I’ve put below, so that you can see how close they are to all the main destinations.
The apartment we stayed in was a one bedroom but they have a two bedroom apartment for up to four people if you’re travelling in a group. Our apartment had a large kitchen too , with everything you need to make dinner at home as well as a coffee machine of dreams for the morning. The price of staying is also really reasonable for the location and the standard of the apartments, as well as the fact that you have privacy and lots of amenities. I couldn’t rate my stay here more highly, even though it was only one night I felt like an absolute princess and being able to walk to work in 5 minutes was amazing too.
If I win the lottery I might even move in…
I would like to thank Aaron Wise for the complimentary night at their apartment. This is not a sponsored post and all opinions are my own.
