Old Post House Bed & Breakfast St Fagans is a family owned and run, accommodation business, in Cardiff by husband and wife team Christopher & Faye Price.

Chris and Faye have had roots to St Fagans village for over 25 years, having lived and worked in the village for so long they naturally jumped at the opportunity to restore new life into Old Post House Bed & Breakfast Cardiff, as well as raising their young family in the local village surroundings that mean so much to them.

Active within the community with Chris being a member of the community council – the surrounding village, its residents’, other businesses & environment are all very important to the family.

It’s this homely, friendly & welcoming approach that comes across whether you’re choosing to stay at Old Post House Bed & Breakfast Cardiff or hosting an event or wedding. A personal touch-where no ask is too big and every endeavour is taken to ensure your stay, event or wedding at Old Post House Bed & Breakfast Cardiff is to be remembered.

Having travelled extensively throughout Europe, India, Asia, America, Australia & New Zealand, they have both gravitated back to their roots.  They bring with them experience and expertise generated from working and living in many other countries, which is very much like the Old Post House Bed & Breakfast Cardiff building itself.  The building is a mix of traditional (dating back from being the original village Post Office & Police Station) and the more modern Scandinavian influence which has transformed the building over the last 20 years.

With Faye and Chris’ background in hospitality, weddings and their commercial catering company, which provides daily catering to many businesses in and around South Wales, you will find yourselves in very capable hands. Business Lunch Company is also housed at Old Post House Bed & Breakfast Cardiff and compliments the all-round service, for events and weddings you can find at Old Post House Bed & Breakfast Cardiff.
