You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Local Chambers of Commerce for CF64 4AF. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

Penarth Rd, Llandough, Cardiff CF11 8JQ, UK – 029 2071 1243

We found our gorgeous forever friend, Billy, here. The staff obviously love and care for their dogs and are great to deal with. We left with a bag of goodies and a fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped pooch. A great place to meet your next sofa buddy.

We met our dog, Jerry, at Cardiff Dogs Home. Run by people who really care about dogs, it's the place to meet your new best friend.

The Kymin

Beach Rd, Penarth CF64 1JX, UK – 029 2070 0721

Does the job. Outside was nice. Floors all very thin so very distracting with different meetings in each room. Children sprinting upstairs actually made us think the ceiling was going to cave in!

Lovely grounds to walk around and great views.

Dental Surgeries

Greenfield Dental Care

60 Greenfield Ave, Dinas Powys CF64 4BX, UK – 029 2051 5151

If you're looking for a dentist, you do not need to look any further. Greenfield Dental Surgery lives up to all the below reviews. The staff could not be any more friendly, they remember who you are and take time to get to know a bit about you and what you need/want from your appointments with them. You get a quality, friendly, reassuring service for a very reasonable price. When I moved, I was worried that I wouldn't find a better dentist than the one I went to at home, I didn't expect to find an even better one!!

After suffering for most of my life with a phobia and fear of the dentist, earlier this year I was recommended to Greenfield Dental Care in Dinas Powys. I needed a considerable amount of work on my teeth and found my dentist, Victoria, most efficient and helpful. When I first attended the practice I could hardly sit still because I was terrified. Victoria explained everything to me throughout each of my appointments, telling me what she was doing and why she was doing it, putting me at ease. I still have 2 appointments left to finish my crowns and dentures and then I will have that "Hollywood Smile" I would thoroughly recommend Greenfield Dental Care to anyone.

Hickman House Dental & Laser Clinic

25 Hickman Rd, Penarth CF64 2AJ, UK – 029 2070 8317

Very popular dentist

In response to the recent review, the patient was offered a number of emergency appointments to see his dentist at the practice today and tomorrow. None of these were suitable for patient so he was booked in later in the week Our practice has a clear policy of seeing any patients with an emergency within 24 hours in line with current NHS and local protocol. Emergency appointments offered will be at times we have space to see patients. We can't always accommodate late emergency appointments as the end of the day can be our busiest times and will not allow time to provide treatment.

Castle Court Dental Care

1 Castle Dr, Dinas Powys CF64 4NS, UK – 029 2051 2646

I used to dread going to the dentist. In fact I avoided going for years. When I finally had no choice, I found my local dentist, Castle Court, and booked an appointment with Maggi. I shouldn't have worried, Castle Court have been brilliant. From reception to dentists drill, they make you feel relaxed and welcome. I've not felt any pain from the dental work or needles and the work has been first class. Highly recommended.

Albert Road Surgery

Albert Rd, Penarth CF64 1BX, UK – 029 2071 1966

Easy to talk to,and don't just rush you out :-)

I've been registered at this surgery for over 10 years with Dr. Parry, and I've always been very satisfied with the service provided. There are a few niggles but you get that anywhere.

Station Road Surgery

15-16 Station Rd, Penarth CF64 3EP, UK – 029 2070 2301

Polite, helpful, and great at multi tasking. No complaints.

Redlands Surgery

University Hospital Llandough

Penlan Rd, Llandough, Penarth CF64 2XX, UK – 029 2071 1711

Rapid expansion program underway. More and more departments being added. Staff generally very helpful. Never seen any cleanliness issues. Lots of parking available but some is a 10 minute walk from the hospital itself. Should be fine with the closer car parks most of the time.

Nuffield Health Cardiff Bay Hospital

Dunleavey Drive, Cardiff CF11 0SN, UK – 029 2083 6700

Fantastic care received. Very Quick diagnostic MRI. All the staff absolutely wonderful. Under the care of Mr Mohanty. He was very caring.. professional and answered any questions. Hospital immaculate .. tea and coffee facilities appreciated. Wouldn't hesitate to use Nuffield again ( although I hope I won't to )

My appointment was for a 360+ health check. A first class service with great customer care and attention. Nothing was too much for both my Doctor and Physiologist. I would recommend this hospital and service to anyone who actually cares about their health. You guys are a credit to the medical profession.

Find Recycling Centres

Pedal Power

Cardiff Bay Barage, Cardiff CF10 4PA, UK – 029 2039 0713

They have all kinds of cycles - we hired a quadri-cycle which was fun to ride on. It was little costly though! If you get the normal bikes, you can go the entire cycle route around the bay. The guide you with the route to take.

We booked two bikes for a day with Pedal Power. We met Graham at the bike shed in Cardiff Bay, he was absolutely lovely, being biking novices he helped us with our bikes and kitted us up and even suggested biking trails for us to try. We chose the Taff trail and had a wonderful time biking up to Castle Coch and back. We got to try out the Tandem bike when we returned our bikes the next day. Pedal power is a registered charity, so while you are doing something that is good for you, you are doing something that is good for someone else who needs it too.

Smiths

Llandough Trading Estate, Tollgate House, Penarth Rd, Llandough, Cardiff CF11 8RR, UK – 029 2070 7707

I own a small nutritional store in the centre of Cardiff. Smiths is a great company to use, fast, friendly and reliable service at all times. I would recommend using this company to any businesses looking to manage its waste. The sales rep Paul was very helpful when helping me sort out all my waste problems.

I own a small pizza restaurant in Cardiff, and have been using Smiths wheelie bin service for just over a year now. The service has been a dream so far - they always collect the bins on time, and any questions I have I can pick up the phone anytime and can speak to an actual human! A great service and long may it continue.

The House Clearance Company Cardiff

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Dinas Powys

La Marina Restaurant

PENARTH MARINA, Penarth, VALE OF GLAMORGAN CF64 ITT, UK – 029 2070 5544

We were a party of 26 that dinned last at the la marina restaurant. We can honestly say the service, food and attention from booking to the night was exceptional. The staff could not do enough for us and were really pleasant and welcoming. All of us had a lovely evening celebrating my daughters 40th birthday which was made possible by the attention of the staff. Thank you. We would come again and we will not hesitate to recommend to our friends and family.

We live in Penarth and visit this restaurant probably monthly. The food quality and staff attention make this really great value for money.

The Royal India

213 Cardiff Rd, Dinas Powys CF64 4JW, UK – 029 2051 3800

In my opinion it's the best tasting value for money Indian restaurant around. Well worth a visit. Staff also very good

Take away is efficient. Dinner was ok. It has got good reviews so I had high expectations but I found the dishes where missing flavour. For example, for the korma the chicken was still white, no color of the sauce. Almost looks like the chicken and sauce were mixed last minute. But I cannot bet on it. Taste was ok.

Etc...

1 Royal Buildings Stanwell Road, Penarth CF64 3EA, UK – 029 2009 0060

It is just superb. A lovely place with a great atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff. Food is of the highest quality. Drinks a little bit pricey. But we keep going back there for more. This is a must place to go.

The Etc Restaurant Penarth was outstanding last night for my Daughters Birthday. The decor is perfect (spot something else every visit) fascinating. Great taste. The food was outstanding. Highly recommend the upside down pineapple. Won't spoil it by telling you. Just order, your tastebuds will love it! The quirkyness of the menu is something so different to other restaurants. It really did make it a fun night. Jane and her staff were so attentive. The service was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Considering we had a table of 7 also a high chair for my 18 month old Grand Daughter and space for my 3 month old Grand Daughter in her travel seat. The attention we received was 100% Brilliant. Keep up the good the good work It is a restaurant that Penarth has needed for a long time!! I shall be back and my family shall individually be taking friends there too.

Nursery and Preschools

St Aubin Nurseries

34 Archer Rd, Penarth CF64 3HL, UK – 029 2070 8112

We've been using St Aubin's for over a year, since I went back to work after Maternity leave. It is a wonderful nursery with a staff that know my daughter well. She's always excited to get there in the morning and is reluctant to leave. They always keep me well informed of anything that happens during the day. My daughter is coming on leaps and bounds and I fully believe it is down to the amazing staff there.

A great nursery!
